Enjoying time with our recent UT graduate, we indulged ourselves with wonderfully decadent pancakes with a cinnamon swirl, crispy bacon, and flavorful mimosas. Always a consistent Austin vibe in atmosphere and service, although parking was limited, and demand was great, with a variety of clientele, so with a bit of a wait, but well worth it.

I haven't been to Austin in quite awhile. But visited with my wife and son so he could tour UT Austin campus. A niece, who is a student arranged for us to meet at Kerbey Lane Cafe on Guadelupe St. I had no idea what type of fare would be served. I was actually happy to learn that it specializes... More

I had only eaten at the Kirbey Lane location but loved this one. Right by campus, great food, staff was great. Parking was a little crazy but was worth it.

This place is very popular and I don't know why. We had to wait over a half hour to get seated. The service was enthusiastic but slow. I ordered the French toast that came with eggs and bacon. The bacon was just average. The eggs were cooked perfectly but the french toast was dry and tasteless. The order came with... More

Tofu scrambled with veggies and nutritional yeast. Special vegan pancakes (hint of cinnamon and peach), and two seed patties is a modest $9.50. One of my favorite places in Austin for breakfast. Lot of college kid; apparently open 24 hours a day. All the coffee you can drink. Parking is a nightmare, so forget it. I parked 5 blocks away... More
