An Austin institution since 1975, this corner bakery on charming West Sixth Street serves a full breakfast and lunch menu, in addition to a wide range of pastries and breads. In the bright and airy bakery, with its windows overlooking Sixth Street, the display case is filled with classic croissants, eclairs, muffins, and strudels, as well as empanadas, pies, tarts, cupcakes, and cookies. The lemon bars and cream cheese brownies are popular choices, as well as the decadent chocolate croissant. Whole cakes and pies are available to order, and a display of yeasted loaf breads, focaccia, challah, ciabatta, and baguettes tempts. The bakery strives to use quality ingredients in its recipes, and everything is made from scratch. When available, local ingredients are used in the pastries and sandwiches, including peaches, lettuces, farm eggs, and natural chicken. Sweetish Hill also proudly serves local Anderson’s and Texas Coffee Traders coffee. Those who are unable to visit the bakery downtown can find their favorite breads and pastries at several local markets, including Wheatsville Co-Op, Fresh Plus, and Whole Foods.
