The Counter Cafe is a unique 21st- Century Authentic American Diner focused on serving up the finest of fresh, local and organic food with global love.
Can't go wrong with any of the following: (in no particular order) burger, breakfast tacos, blueberry pancake (w/ honey butter) and the biscuits & gravy. Sit at the counter & watch the magic happen.
Great Austin restaurant with true Austin values. Killer breakfast tacos an arguably the best burger in town! Seating can be a tight. Check out www.getaround.com on your iPhone while waiting in line!
This tiny restaurant serves some of the best locally-sourced food we've had in a town wild for locally-sourced food. And, yes, their famous burgers are amazing. [Eater 38 Member]
The Counter Benedict is the perfect hangover cure. Thick slices of Niman Ranch pastrami and two gooey-yolked eggs perched on a flaky, open-faced homemade biscuit.
This retro diner serves classics with a Texas twist. It's so tiny that you'll inevitably wait for a table, but it's worth it for dishes like the Counter Benedict.
Every single time I eat here it is the best steak I've ever had. I also like the sweet potato fries and even the fruit sides are always fresh and excellent.
Counter café has Great food but the hostess they have a very bad attitude and very rude. Please go at your own risk to be treated like animal probably. She is the trump apprentice.
The eggs benedict is pretty solid. Best part about it is that they use pastrami for the meat. Hollaindaise sauce is a little lemony depending on the day you go
If you appreciate good biscuits, you must try them at Counter! Some of the best I've ever had. Comes with warm butter & a side of strawberry jam.
If you are not sitting at the counter having a conversation with the chef about how he loves his ingredients and the dishes he makes, you are missing out!
Steak and eggs was amazing. I ordered it medium and eggs scrambled. Salad with orange citrus dressing is amazing.
Best Pure Burger I've ever had. Amazing beef and crazy-good bun. Perfectly cooked (get medium rare). You won't regret it!
One heart is not enough for this place. Simple things done very well. Fantastic burger. Fantastic bacon. You should eat here.
veggie burger was delicious. my friend got the quail and was quite disappointed as it was basically a bag of spinach with a tiny bit of meat.
How can 1 tiny place create both the best blueberry pancakes AND the best breakfast tacos?! I always get 1 of each.
Ask for melted butter to put on your pancake. The butter that comes with it is hard and it can be frustrating to spread.
Gdamn an extra $3 each to add shrooms and bacon...but gdamn was that one of the best burgers I've ever had or what?
Can't go wrong with the Counter Burger or the blueberry pancakes! Love that breakfast is served all day!!
Local food close to the convention center! Try the biscuits and gravy or the super popular burger.
Try a burger, they'll do as rare or cooked as you like. Eggs benedict and sausage also very good!
The Hang Town Fry, when available. Omelette w/ bacon, mushrooms, and fried oysters.
Pancakes are thick and fluffy. The blueberry pancakes are particularly fantastic.
No joke, the pancakes here could be eaten without syrup. They're that delicious.
The blueberry pancakes lived up to the hype. My wife's home fries were very dry. Seemed old.
The chicken burger is spicy but delicious. Be sure to add goat cheese! Yum!!
Favorite burger in Austin. Get it with the pimento cheese and sweet potato fries!
Avoid going with more than one other person for seating's sake. Best bun around.
Excellent! Order the pork chop and eggs. Homemade jam is AMAZING!
Get the blueberry pancakes for breakfast and the chicken curry burger for lunch.
definitely get the grilled cheese. what the burger lacks, it makes up for.
Five words: cantaloupe & mint leaf soup (and lovely, weird waitresses)
Eggs. Bacon. Biscuit. Fresh fruit. Top 5 Breakfast. And/but I'm a New Yorker so take that as you will...
Did not care for the mushy textured veggie burger. Biscuits yum!
Order the burger. Avoid everything else. Savor the burger. Wipe hands thoroughly. Exit transformed.
next time will try breakfast. liked the salad with asiago dressing.
The Counter Burger is the best burger I've ever had in my entire life.
get the grilled pimento cheese sandwich. careful, it's not for amateurs.
Great burgers & salads but when I want breakfast food they have it down.
Portions are small, quality is good.
Sweet breakfast spot. Good service, great Benedict.
just had the banana pancakes. it was a revelation!next up, the sweet potato soup!
The Micheladas are delicious! If you like them spicey
I LOVE the breakfast tacos. Just the right amount of food.
Perfect cup of coffee...smooth and bottomless for 2.75.
Ask for some homemade jam with breakfast!
If you like blueberry pancakes, this is your spot.
