We were looking for somewhere good for breakfast on the way to the airport and Paperboy didn't disappoint. The Texas Hash was amazing, and the Steak and Egg Sandwich was very good as well. Cool little place with good food and service!

We stopped by Radio Coffee and were hungry for some early Saturday morning food. I ordered the kale salad, which was quite good, remarkably similar to v313's, but perhaps a bit on the small side. My daughter got the french toast, which to me looked...More

First stop upon arriving in Austin was at Paperboy for some delicious Texas Hash and fresh OJ - a perfect breakfast. The Hash is a great mix of sweet potato, pork shoulder, poached egg, onion and kale with a pecan mole. Such a rich flavor...More
