About the restaurant
"Everything is procured from within a few miles radius of the restaurant. Chef Jesse and team make everything in-house and it's all cooked over an open fire. All dishes are perfectly executed and the breakfast menu is dynamic with something for everyone spanning many regions. They are truly a responsible, sustainable restaurant that is equally delicious." – Grae Nonas

June's is a charming café. Very professional staff and excellent food. The attention to detail was evident (adorable cups and plates personalized with the facade of the café). The food was priced fairly for the quality. My friend and I shared a couple of very tasty plates. The macchiato was probably one of the best I've had. I would have loved to have seen at least one Texas rosé choice on the wine menu. There was one Texas wine by the bottle, but not a local winery. The French cafe atmosphere included small cafe tables, which were fine, but a little cramped.

The Hot Rock and Shag Roll never disappoint. However, the “crispy potatoes” were not, so our server Morgan graciously comped them.
