Buttermilk pancakes are fabulous. My friend got the yogurt and fruit plate and it looked amazing. All fresh fruit!

We went here for breakfast on a Sunday. The wait was close to an hour for very mediocre diner food. Service was poor and the eggs we ordered were not cooked correctly. I don't understand why anyone would eat here especially if you have to wait!

We found this place from the Food Network's Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. We ate here for lunch and it was just okay. I've had better, but I've also had worse. The burgers were very average without much flavor. I might try this place again for breakfast, but probably won't come back for lunch.

The service was very quick and even though, it is a small restaurant with a lot of people, we didn't have to wait long for a table or for our food.

Awesome area of Austin, we ate breakfast and were thrilled with the food and the outstanding service. What more could you ask for in a cool setting and eclectic crowd. This IS Austin at it's finest.

I am vegetarian and loved all the choices for both breakfast and lunch. It's a popular spot during primetime, but service is quick and the staff is very courteous. Nice, eclectic decor.
