Great breakfast place.

French toast made with lemon poppy bread, migas and grapefruit mimosas were my favorites during my first visit. It was hard to narrow my selection from the tempting menu, so I'll return on a future trip to Austin. Casual, affordable and quick friendly service. Try the patio seating.

Went for breakfast and had fantastic chilaquiles! No need to dress up OR down to hit this place - even the wait staff is eclectic (all of whom, by the way, were on the ball, engaging, and friendly). It was also the cleanest place we visited during our trip to Austin - even the bathrooms sparkled. Go here!

Clean, friendly environment which caters to all, even those with food issues. I have severe food allergies to mammal meat and dairy, and was able to enjoy a vegan made-in-house-from-scratch "burger" that was simply amazing in both presentation and taste!. Highly recommend!

I was excited to eat here for my birthday breakfast as I heard the pancakes were delicious. Highly overrated, below average service and tasteless pancakes.

Went during my week trip to Boston. There special pancake for the day was s'mores. They were amazing! Delicious chocolate pancakes with marshmellow syrup stuff on top. Yum. Other food was ok, eggs were good. Service was attentive. I'd definitely go back hopefully for more s'mores pancakes :)

Kerbey Lane is an Austin institution. It has sort of a diner menu and feel, great for families or friends. This new location has great decor too. There will always be a wait for breakfast/brunch on the weekends but it moves pretty quickly!

We visit Austin several times per year. Sunday mornings are always reserved for brunch at Kerbey Lane Cafe on South Lamar. For over 15 years this has been the plan so I guess it is now a tradition, and a good one at that. Food for Vegans and regular Texans as well. Decent prices, good service and really good food...

I had a complete breakfast and laid down $14 on the counter. This covered eggs, sausage, biscuits, gravy, coffee, sales tax, and tip. Not the best best breakfast I have ever had, nor the worst. It is close to my home, so I expect to go again, but not often.
