Tucked away on a quiet side street, this is not a place that you would just happen across. Luckily, we had been told that Kerbey Lane was a great place for veggie food, and the recommendations were spot on. Once you find the place, the biggest hassle is parking. Street parking is very limited, and we were lucky to get one of the handful of spaces behind the cafe - these are accessed through a tight alley at the side of the building, and it was very tight squeezing in to the space.
Once inside, it was worth the effort. Our only complaint about the interior was the noisy party of girls from Houston, but luckily they left before our meal was finished. The decor is typical Austin-quirky, and has a nice relaxed vibe.
We started with the vegan queso. This was an excellent choice - very flavorful, and served with a bowl of chips and salsa. I had the Hippy Burger, which was nice and moist, but held together well during eating. Some home-made patties like this will dissolve as you eat them, leading to a messy meal, but this one stuck together nicely. It was paired with the country fries, which were nicely done. My wife had a breakfast special, which included a stack of pancakes. I'm normally not a big fan of pancakes, but these were exceptional - light and fluffy, with hints of ginger and cinnamon, served with a vegan spread. It was hard work, but I managed to finish them off when my wife called it quits.
Overall, this was a very cool place to eat, and will be somewhere that we visit again next time we are in town.
