Sofia Coppola Favorite: Josephine House Of Austin

Sofia Coppola’s Favorite Lunch Spot — Josephine House of Austin
By Renee Hernandez

My beloved city of Austin, Texas, is known for its certain amount of weird, strong Chicano roots, and true Southern hospitality — a perfect combination, if you ask me. Sofia Coppola has been to Austin a few times, accompanying her husband Thomas Mars when Phoenix headlined the ACL Festival in 2013 and then more recently for a taping of Austin City Limits Live.

In the supplement Summer Pleasures that she guest edited for the May issue of W Magazine this year, Sofia reveals that her favorite lunch spot in Austin is Josephine House. This issue is all about refinement and taking more time to enjoy beauty and the simple things in life. So, in that mood maybe I want to indulge and treat myself to brunch at Josephine House.

Josephine House is a cute little nautical themed restaurant located in the quiet and eclectic neighborhood of Clarksville. Like almost every restaurant in Austin, it has a beautiful patio. I love the fact that the patio is bigger than its indoor space because so much of Austin life is lived outside. Did I mention the grassy front lawn for lounging?

The crowd in Austin is pretty diverse — you may be brunching with students in jeans, families with children, businessmen in suits, peppered with the occasional celebrity. In a shady nook I spotted Robin Tunney (The Mentalist, The Craft) and her lover both with fresh bed head.

I ordered the most non-kosher item on the menu — the Josephine Breakfast Burger. Fried egg, bacon, greens, harissa aïoli, housemade bun, and frites. Endless refills of Mexican Coca-Cola. Super indulgent and absolutely delicious, ya’ll.
