I haven't lived in Austin in 20 years, but Magnolia Cafe is still awesome! We went for breakfast after a hike along the lake. It is a small restaurant and you may have to wait. But it is an authentic Austin experience and very worth it. Artwork (for sale by local artists) cover the walls. Your coffee cup will never be empty. Lots of vegetarian options for those who want it. And eclectic hippy waiters make this an Austin institution. Best of all, the Migas were just as I remembered!

This place is popular for a reason. We went there for a late breakfast with local friends while visiting Austin and not a single thing disappointed me from start to finish. Definitely sit in the covered outdoor heating unless the heat is unbearable.

One of the staff at the hotel told us about this place and we were very glad.

Great atmosphere, great food and great prices. No trip to Austin should be without a breakfast here. :-)

Get there early if you do not want to stand in line, we arrived at about 9am, when we left there were a lot of people waiting to be seated, this was on a Saturday.
