Star Seeds isn't for everyone. There have been times that I've gone there and gotten dry, substandard burgers, and there have definitely been some service issues with some of the wait staff. I was always told before I became a frequent customer myself that Star Seeds was famous for having wait staff that were intentionally rude to you, and that they were trained that way for some reason. I've never seen that to be the case in my own personal experience, but I've definitely been there quite a few times when there was literally only one person working during a rush and they simple just didn't have the time to do anything more than run over, hastily take my order, and then come throw it down on the table when it was ready and pretty much leave me to fend for myself the rest of the time.
All that being said, out of all the amazing Austin diners, like Magnolia and Kerby Lane and the Omelettry and the Austin Diner and all those cool places, which all have better food and better service, Star Seeds is the place I found myself going most often. I think they actually have the best migas in town, or at least my favorite, which is saying something because Austin is a migas town. There burgers are great when they come out great, and not great when they don't, and they have other good stuff on the menu too, like biscuits and gravy and oatmeal and stuff like that. Their coffee is absolute amazing, so good that you'll want to buy some to take home, which they let you do.
I think the main reason I went there so often is because of the coffee, the migas, and the fact that they have two dollar mimosas (two dollar beers I think too) in addition to the typical eclectic Austin vibe and the emo/hipster waitstaff, usually young tragically fashionable people that look like they dropped out of nearby UT to become heroine addicts or actors or musicians or something. They often hook their personal ipods or whatever up to the sound system, or stream pandora or something like that, so the music is almost always totally righteous, although it can get very loud and very rowdy (and not cool) at busy times. This became my favorite place during weekdays when nobody else was there to come in and eat the migas and drink about three cups of coffee and about five mimosas before going in to work late. They mix the mimosas nice and strong, just like you'll need them for a hard day at the office, and I went there and did this so often that more than once I was eventually served a grand finale mimosa in a pint glass instead of the normal champagne flute, at no extra charge, because they could tell how much I like them.
That's my kind of diner.
