My wife and I stopped here to try something different for us. The lunch crowd was big on a Tuesday. The menu has some good looking items. My wife and I both settled on some "seasonal" items. We were each very pleased with our selections. Sitting on the patio during lunch was not the best choice but... read more

We really enjoyed our breakfast which was quickly and efficiently served. Our cups of coffee and glasses of water were kept full with nary a word to our servers. My choice was the California Omelet made with avocado and cheddarjack cheese, topped with fresh tomato, kalamata olives and scratch made green chile sour cream sauce. It comes with 2 sides.... More

Since this location opened, they have done a summer tomato menu that is awesome. I had a hankering for their fried green tomato eggs benedict. It was delicious -- just what I was craving. My tomatoes have been doing so well that I didn't get any green ones! So I needed that fix. My husband had the Nabil salad and... More

Every time we are in Austin we eat here. I love their mid east salad and their sweet potato fries. Service is quick even when busy. I wish they had these in Dallas

Three simple dishes took ages to arrive. And when they did...no big surprise!...cold fries, limp tacos, and a tired, dried out burger. The wait staff were friendly but unprofessional. The result? We will never return to a Kerbey Lane restaurant in Austin, and will urge our friends to avoid them too. What a shame. Getting the basics right shouldn't be... More

I like this place and go every time I'm in town, but I'm tired of lukewarm food. Each time I hope for the best, but this last trip may have ended my enjoyment of this fun cafe. The food has great flavor and is original, too, and the service is usually first rate. But I think I'll go someplace else... More

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.
