Visiting Austin and gave Kerbey Lane Cafe a try for breakfast. As we were walking in the door someone pushed by us and it was a waitress for the cafe obviously late for her shift. They seated us in a booth where i had to clean off the seat from food left there. Ordered a French toast platter which came... More

Great selection on the menu-traditional breakfast items as well as some unique offerings. Omelet, eggs Benedict on a biscuit, and pancakes were all yummy!

We went on Saturday morning around 9:40am. I had a red quinoa salad and it was delicious! The portion was big and it was delicious! My daughter had pancakes and she loved it. Atmosphere is very nice and we enjoyed our breakfast. By the time we left around 11, there were a lot of people waiting outside. This place is... More

Delicious food. Quick service. Everyone is friendly. Lots of options. Large vegan menu that is separate and a lot of dishes are vegetarian or can be made vegetarian if requested which is awesome. One of the guys in my group is vegan and he said its some of the best vegan food he's had -- he was very impressed. Very... More

Visited 2016-09-08. Blueberry pancake and pork sausage were very good. Iced tea was fresh and brisk.

My husband and I are lucky enough to have schedules that aren't "normal" so we have the opportunity to visit here during non-peak times. We discovered on our last visit that kids eat free on Tuesdays! Wonderful surprise. The good is always great! Service is always moderate. We seem to either have a great hostess and average server or vice... More

Even though it was 10:30 we still had to wait for a table. It is so worth the wait though! We had a combination of breakfast and dinner options ordered at our table. That is the beauty of the 24 hour diner!

Due to food sensitivities, there was little on the menu that I could eat except the avocado tacos. Fortunately, they were fabulous! Their beans were too spicy for me to eat, but the tacos were super yum.

Imagine that you've got VIP seating at the diner in heaven. Double the quality. That's Kerbey Lane. EVERY time I find myself there, they just kill it. The "A" game every time.

Great breakfast that was too much to finish. James was very kind and fast. Good selection of specialized and contemporary fare. Food was delicious (although the breakfast cook needs to learn the difference between eggs over well and over hard). Call ahead reservations and phone tracking makes for convenient waiting. Will be back.
