"One of Austin’s most popular paleo-centric dining options is expanding. Picnik, which has operated out of a re-purposed shipping container at 1700 S. Lamar Blvd. since 2013, opened a brick-and-mortar location at 4801 Burnet Road"
“Picnik Austin is not your typical coffee shop/restaurant, IT’S BETTER – because everything there is Paleo approved! And at the end of the day, all leftover coffee water is used to water the plants on the property. The flowers and herbs that grow on the property are then used to make the meals that are served. Everything comes full circle!”
“Their location and quaintness makes me want to grab a blanket, my pup and head on over and literally have a picnic from Picnik.”
“Seifter’s desire is to change the way people think about food and to emphasize the importance of quality ingredients to optimize each individual’s health. No one needs any prior knowledge on the paleo diet to enjoy Picnik’s organic and nutrient rich ingredients.”
“Catering to customers with dietary restrictions and dedication to modern ancestral cuisine, the ultramodern trailer-in-a-box also focuses on futuristic sustainability methods with 100% compostable food packaging.
Bamboo mats, a picnic table, and shade sails rest near the grassy knoll where the tiny eatery's front wall opens to reveal air-conditioned counter service.”
