Kerbey Lane is a very popular cafe, often with long waits. That means the food is quite tasty. Our party of six had six different dishes. The pancakes were overwhelming favorites. The queso dip was also a big hit. We also tried one of the eggs benedict choices, the fried chicken and gravy and several egg dishes. Outdoor seating is... More

For several years my wife and I lived part time in Austin and were on a continual search for the best breakfast and the best migas in Austin. We are back in Austin to avoid the Montana winter for 6 weeks and just visited Kerbey Lane again. The visit convinced me that on a consistent basis Kerbey Lane cooks eggs... More

We love this place. Fresh food, a great staff, and I can get breakfast for dinner. Even good restaurants make mistakes, and that is when I was really impressed. The manager went out of his way to make it right and made it clear that it was important to him to take care of his customers. More restaurants could use... More

They offer lots of super tasty GF options. My daughter and I had their GF french toast (a rare treat at a restaurant) and their chickpea veggie burger (also not something one can usually find GF at a restaurant). Both were fabulous. We did not try but appreciated the option of their seasonal GF pancakes. Would definitely go again.

Three of us stopped by yesterday, January 21, 2017 and ate breakfast. I had the Kerby lane breakfast combo with blueberry pancakes. Everything was felicious. Wife had an egg Benedict style plate and our son had pumpkin french toast. Both of these plates are off the fall menu. All was delicious. Well worth the visit. Parking is a problem, but... More

You can find organic and local food, eggs cooked as you prefer (the benedicts are simply delicious!) baked or fried potatoes, different bread selections and toppings. The sweet potatoes fries are the best I have ever tried! Great place for families, friends, couples and alone! One of my favorite brunch in Austin!

Had a fairly large group. Told it would be 25 minutes. No one was in the place since it was early. As crowd came in, we said split us up if that was necessary. Nope, other people sat and we waited. When out name was finally called, my wife goes up and the women says "I gave away your table".... More

Interesting selection of both egg dishes and pancakes. There are specials of the day and you can have your pancakes "swirled". Especially like the eggs Benedict on a biscuit!

I've been living in Austin for about 2 years now and this is the restaurant I bring all of my friends and family to when they visit. I would recommend the Paris Texas Platter. It comes with a large plate of french toast and a large plate of migas. Ask for the sour cream sauce! Expect to wait anywhere from... More
