Local places that we love
We love Nate's because you can go there during the day and bring your laptop, get work done and then stay for happy hour. It's super friendly and it's a great spot to meet people and chat it up. One caveat--they don't have a kitchen so the food offerings are limited (still good though!).

It's easy be at Hat Creek. It's a fast casual restaurant where you can get a healthy salad or a burger. I like them because they sponsor a lot of local activities too (like the Buda Turkey Trot) and other fun events for the community.
