Royal Jelly is a gastropub in St. Johns is a gem in the Austin restaurant scene with great happy hour specials that include killer cocktails and rotating small plates. The patio with brightly painted furniture is perfect for lounging in the summer, and the laid-back vibe is perfect for catching up with friends. Bonus: many of their beers come from Texas, so you can ride that local vibe. No, this is not a jam shop but it is the jam. Take a right onto St. Johns from Lamar and you’ve arrived as this little gastropub is the first to pop up on this road but it’s assuredly not the last. Happy hour all day on Sunday and 4-7pm Tuesday through Saturday. Small plates change all the time but the goat meatballs and merguez sliders are consistently available. Wash it down with a Mole Old Fashioned or some house-made sangria.
