Great Breakfasts and we were appreciated!

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

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
