Staff is a bit quirky, but then this is Austin. No complaints. Open 24/7. Tiny but rare on-site parking Austin that is adequate during non-peak times. I like their breakfast but went this time with Chicken Fried Steak Medallions with Bacon Pepper Gravy, Collard Greens, Cheddar Bacon Mashed Potatoes, and fresh scratch-made biscuit. Very pleasant and attentive server. Only odd... More

The Kerbey Lane Cafe on Guadalupe Street is right nearby the University of Texas campus so it receives a lot of foot traffic regardless of the time of day. That said, the floors were absolutely filthy and most of the tables had crumbs on them, including the table at which I was seated. You'd think they would at least try... More

Another disappointing, and last, visit to Kerbey Lane. Ordered biscuits and gravy,sausage, eggs over easy, and home fries. Cold, dry biscuits topped with cold gravy, eggs were brown from cooking on too hot grill, home fries were most unimaginative home fries ever(cubes of potato deep fried...no seasoning). Sausage and coffee were good, service was ok. Kerbey Lane is a very... More

I was invited to this place for breakfast on a Saturday morning by the family. Upon arriving at the door, the host says he has to go do something (maybe clean a table) and disappears into the back. 2 other waiters tried to seat us, and we declined thinking this person is working on a table for us. FINALLY he... More

After our first night at SXSW we were dehydrated and extremely hungry. My friends from Austin suggested this place. The parking lot is tiny, what's new. There was a slight wait for a table in the morning, but it wasn't anything unbearable. The food was okay, I wouldn't go back really. For the same price or maybe even cheaper I... More

Good service and very good food. The Kersey queso is recommended. Breakfast served all day. In addition to the queso, had a salad and omelet. Will be back.

Kerbey Lane Cafe is a favorite spot for breakfast. They have enlarged their table space due to ever increasing demand. For picky eaters who like cage free eggs and locally grown produce, this is your place. There are signs about the food providers at the entrance. I like that I can trust the fact that they do not compromise in... More

Kerbey Lane is always a "must-visit" when I go to Austin. Their food has not diminished one bit since I started eating there 22 year ago. This location was added in recent years, but the food is just as great as the others. The staff was always nice and attentive. We ate here a couple of ties on our recent... More

Just had a great breakfast here . I ate the gluten free pancakes with a avocado omelet. They also had gluten free bread. It was perfect. Service was good and it was a great location. Lots of room
