Smores 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 :)

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.

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.

We used to live in Austin and would enjoy Kerbey Lane Cafe at it's previous location on S. Lamar. They always had funky waiters and really good food. When back in Austin for the 2014 Christmas holidays, we found the new location - and were very disappointed. We ordered Migas, and found them little more than watery scrambled eggs among... More

Since I was a teenager, I've always had a great experience at Kerbey Lane; not a single item on their menu I've ever had has been a disappointment. Have had a lot of great memories at the old, South Lamar location and, while the new location is a well laid out space with a modern, updated feel, it doesn't quite... More
