“Pretty good”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

This cafe is very popular. The service was very good. The food was good, but didn't knock our socks off. I had "Alaska benedict," like eggs benedict only with lox instead of Canadian bacon. It was a little jarring as the eggs were warm, as they should be but the lox was cold. The Hollandaise was a bit runny. The potatoes were very good. 4 of us split a ginger pancake, which was good for pancake fans. The portions were generous, prices moderate.

“Very good food, funky fun place. Great after a night of indulging.”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

We partied just a wee bit too much and ended up here on New Year's Eve for breakfast. It hit the spot. The T-Rex omelet was totally delicious and I had a side of lemon sour cream which was fantastic. The menu is extensive and has something for everyone! Would definitely visit again when in Austin.
