Great way to start the day

We walked 2.5 miles to get to Kerbey Lane because it was another of my favorite places from my time in Austin 25 years ago. So good! I had the chicken verde omelette with a short stack of Apple wheat pancakes (subbed the two side for the pancake treat), and my husband had a traditional breakfast... read more

We chose Kerbey Lane Cafe based on the reviews and the interesting looking menu. The building itself was bright and there were a lot of customers already eating, so all the signs looked good. We were seated and served by a couple of friendly staff members and ordered drinks. For breakfast I ordered the Texas Benedict, sounded very tasty on... More

We've just moved to Austin, and I had been introduced to Kerbey Lane for a breakfast meeting and then was treated to lunch one day. So I took my wife for Sunday Brunch, telling her how good my meals had been, and sure enough, we enjoyed another delicious meal at Kerbey Lane. John took excellent care of us - coffee... More

This is an Austin restaurant 'icon' that needs to be on any foodie's visit list. It's fresh, quality food at an affordable price. I had the classic eggs Francisco and it didn't disappoint. There's usually a line so be prepared.

Really tasty Chicken Fried Chicken Eggs Benedict. The pickled red onion on the open biscuit base complemented the holland aisle sauce giving just the right amount of tang. The chicken fried breast was beautifully coated and fried. Kudos too to the vanilla bean ice cream served with the brownie sundae. Drawback? The portions easily serve two or even three, so... More

Was travelling through Austin and ate here a couple nights. The food was decent and they made sure that I was happy with the food. Most of all it was a very welcoming and friendly place to sit down and have something to eat. The place is obviously well-managed and the staff are always happy to do anything to improve... More

Loved the breakfast tacos. The queso over the guacamole was a big hit. Want to go back and have the pancakes next time.

NOT FOR PEOPLE SEEKING GLUTEN FREE. This restaurant boasts of gluten free breads and pancakes but upon inquiry made when my daughter went there to dine with her daughter who has Celiac, she was basically told they could not accommodate her. I guess they were at least honest but why bother to include this as a part of your menu... More
