Vegan and Gluten free menus!

one of my sons needs to eat gluten-free, and the other can't eat dairy- so I was thrilled to find this place. They could both get pancakes that met their dietary needs....what could be better? Parking is tight, so try to get there early. There was a long line when we were leaving around 10 on... read more

We had some terrific breakfast here - pancakes, french toast, eggs and such. Staff were friendly and food was served in a timely fashion. All of it was great.

Delicious lunch - recommend the red quinoa salad! Others in our party had burgers and pancakes - all great! Friendly, patient service and we were delighted when our server returned with our check and told us that lunch was on the restaurant! Apparently, this is something they do on occasion (perhaps for us because we were out of town) -... More

Loved the wonderful omelets! perfectly prepared! We were pleasantly surprised that on occasion when the bill prints up it says that the restaurant appreciates you! and the bill is zero! Even if we had to pay our bill I would have written a great review!

we were visiting Univ of Texas and wondering where we should eat. Everyone suggested Kerbey Lane so we had to visit. While the lunch food was ok (grilled cheese with bacon and pears), the breakfast food was outstanding. I don't think we ever had a better pancake--especially the cinnamon roll pancaked--which were out of this world. The queso was also... More

We were in the Austin area on business and it was my husbands birthday. We read a few reviews and decided to try this place out. We are so happy we did! Kerbys has a nice vibe and was clean. We had a server that was training aside his supervisor. It was his first day and we were his first... More

I was along for the ride. My daughter raved about the gingerbread pancakes. I had a veggie omelettte, fries, dry wheat toast and salsa. The food was good, the coffee was better and our waitress was fabulous. My kid paid the bill. She was perplexed why I threw another 5 down for a tip. I really liked our waitress. She... More

Ate at Kerby Lane today as part of the 'UT experience' provided by my UT grad niece for my soon-to-be college bound 16 year old son. I had the breakfast special with scrambled eggs, special sausage and the beignet pancakes. The taste of the beignet pancakes was the best ever for me! Son had the Boss burger and could not... More

Great Saturday morning breakfast on recent trip to Austin. My husband was insistent on wanting pancakes...where else would one go in Austin, but to Kerbey Lane?? He claimed they were best ever. He would have eaten there every morning if he could have....we went on to try out other places, but this would be a definite repeat on any future... More

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
