The Oasis

September 27, 2009

July 19, 2009 | The morning after going out for Bill’s Birthday, a small group of us had brunch at The Oasis, overlooking Lake Travis!  Interesting bit– the Oasis opened in 1982 although there was a fire a few years ago that resulted in an expansion of the place.  The Oasis isn’t known so much for having the best food in Austin, but rather, the best view.  Although the water levels were low, the view was still very enjoyable and the weather was perfect as we sat in the shade.

I ended up ordering the Crawfish Crab Benedict, toasted English muffins topped with spicy crawfish crab cakes and poached eggs, drizzled with hollandaise sauce and served with brunch potatoes.

It was surprisingly satisfying!  I didn’t care much for the brunch potatoes, not with the benedict on the same plate!  The fruit was a nice addition too.  It was a great way to end our Austin trip!!
