Some days at work, you’re constantly in meetings about other meetings and circling back with people who want to touch base. When that happens, head to Austin Daily Press after work and eat a sandwich and some hush puppies at a picnic table while you quietly reflect on the day. They serve 20 different sandwiches, along with a few types of tacos and salads, and while you can’t drink here, you can take your food next door to The Wheel instead where you can.
