AUSTIN, Texas — Central Texans have seen many businesses shutting down because of the COVID-19 pandemic. KVUE wants to help "Keep Austin Local" by highlighting small businesses that might need a little help.
On Wednesday, KVUE stopped by Pacha Organic Café on Burnet Road.
The café has been around for 21 years. Pacha opened its doors in March of 2000 as a shop selling crafts from Bolivia and Peru. The current owners, Marjorie and David, took over in December of 2008 at the height of an economic crisis. They decided to turn Pacha into a place for community, organic ingredients and a great atmosphere.

The COVID-19 pandemic forced Pacha to close its doors for a few months. Now, it is back open for outdoor dining only. The in-house dining will remain closed until the staff is fully vaccinated. Outdoor seating is available in the front and back of the café.
Pacha is known for its pear, bacon and scallion pancake, and has recently started offering dinner. On the dinner menu, you can find pulled-pork sandwiches, baked potatoes and more. It also has coffee and tea.
Pacha Organic Café can be found online here, or at 4618 Burnet Road in Austin.
