New to Austin: June 2018

Once only available at kiosk locations like Austin Bouldering Project, Bento Picnic officially has a brick and mortar shop. The expanded menu is full of healthy options that cater to those with dietary restrictions and preferences (gluten-free, dairy-free, Whole30-approved, etc.).
All of the meals and snacks are ready to eat (no prep or heating required), so they’re perfect for athletes and busy professionals. With the addition of a large, fenced yard, the new café is also family- and dog-friendly.

Courts are also available for rent Monday through Friday, and per availability on weekends.
