    I was great. We sat outside. It was "cool enough" with the fans. The atmosphere was uplifted and playful. The service was very good...friendly and well tended. Plus, the food was very tasty. A very nice treat for a south Louisiana girl far away from home.

    Party of four dined inside. Specialty Cajun omelettes were good and sides of potatoes were crisp. Poached eggs with hollandaise sauce were good, too, but side of grits was gummy and sausage was grocery store quality. Individual breakfast taco was fluffy and served in a fresh corn tortilla. Best part of meal was side stack of blueberry pancakes, fluffy and bursting with blueberries. Waitress was mostly impatient and irritated, but was trying to come off as just a sassy gal. Food expeditors and others were friendly.

    the host at the hose stand was nice and gave us a few good recs for what to order when we asked. The fans outside under the patio were not working so one of the hostesses let us move to a different table under a fan which was really nice. then the cute host guy brought out a dog bowl with water and ice for our dog which was amazing. then our server really gave us a comfortable vibe and helped us with all the questions we had with our order. she loved our dog and our dog loved her so it was an amazing fit. we did come just a little closer to closing time but never once felt rushed out. they even asked us if we wanted dessert and it was pretty much closing time which was lovely. overall, we had a good time and the food hit so hard. we talked about how this might be out a new spot for drinks and where we take people when they come to visit us in Austin.

    Every time we go to Austin we come here for brunch. They have reduced the portion size, but kept the prices same which is great. No left overs, just perfect size and good price.

    Sawyer and Co. is a hidden gem if you're looking for wonderful food and drinks. It is often hard to find really delicious cajun food outside of Louisiana, and this place nails it without feeling pretentious or uninviting. I dare you to try any of the Southern Classics without smiling after the first bite. The drinks are fun amd inventive, and the service was pretty standard. The decor inside is mid-century modern and reminiscent of an upscale diner. Will definitely be back to scratch the cajun itch.
