The Crestview vibe
Close to the University of Texas campus, Crestview draws UT professors and students. There’s a relaxed, “Classic Austin” kind of attitude and abundance of mid-20th century charm.
the roots of Crestview
This well-established neighborhood was developed after World War II on the site of an old dairy farm.
Crestview real estate
Built in the mid-20th century, they have 2-3 bedrooms and 1-2 baths. Average square footage ranges from 700 to 1,500, but with new construction and expansions on the rise, larger homes are becoming more common.
Eat and Drink in the
Our favorite stops for caffeine, conversation or telecommuting: Genuine Joe Coffeehouse, Epoch Coffee, and Monkey Nest Coffee.
Tacodeli is always buzzing — and it’s because they have the best taco menu around with the highest-quality ingredients. They close at 3, so hurry up! Lisa’s picks: the Akaushi Picadillo taco and Espinaca salad for lunch; the Jess Special or Otto tacos for breakfast.
Crestview is also the place to try other classic Austin spots like Little Deli and Pizzeria and El Nuevo Mexico.
Crestview residents can take advantage of Brentwood Park’s pool, picnic shelters and sports courts. This is a great neighborhood park — and just a short walk from Little Deli!
Crestview Shopping Center along Woodrow Avenue is home to businesses including a neighborhood pharmacy and barbershop, not to mention this mosaic celebrating the area’s retro-flavored appeal. The original Threadgill’s on North Lamar Boulevard is where Janis Joplin got her start.
You might remember Top Notch Hamburgers from the movie “Dazed and Confused.”
