The Crestview neighborhood, located north of downtown, was built by developer A.B. Beddow on the site of an old dairy farm in the 1950s and early 1960s. Many of local icons have deep roots, including the Minimax grocery store (est. 1953) and Top Notch Burgers (est. 1971), while other landmarks such as Cutie Pies and the Burnet Road Farmers Market are more recent arrivals. Crestview is mostly residential, featuring single-family bungalows and mid-century ranch homes. It’s among the more comfortable, friendly places to live in Austin.
