Las Manitas, Austin

BfastLas Manitas is an Austin institution.  Mexican food diner.  I don’t know else how to describe it.  Excellent breakfast.  I am sure a pretty good lunch too but we opted for the breakfast.  My favorite thing though was the auqua fesca lemon/lime.  Not too sweet but just perfect zip of lemon and lime seltzer drink.  I’d buy a case.  Different flavors too.  The vibe in there is the perfect greeting to the flavor of the city. 

They had erected a memorial to Anne RichardsAnne_richards who must have been a regular.  She was a great woman who really made a difference at home but also nationally.  One of the first women to rise up to be Governor of her state.  She will be sorely missed.
