    Locavore before it was cool, this quintessential Austin diner serves fresh and delicious grub and embraces all that is our quirky community. Great things can happen over a bowl of Kerbey Queso at 4am. Read more

    Best organic ketchup ever. The eggs are soft and delicious, and the seasoned mashed potatoes are amazing. The rolls fall apart, and the chicken fried steak was really good. Tobias is the best!

    Delicious cinnamon swirl gluten free pancakes $2 mimosas spicy bloody Mary's amazing iced coffee on tap - beat the hangover crowd on Sunday and get there before 8 am remember no alcohol before 10 am.

    Crowded spot, but the breakfast is worth the wait (and any difficulties you might have with parking). The fried chicken benedict is on point and the $2 mimosas are the perfect accompaniment.

    Enjoy a bowl of Kerbey Queso with your friends in the original KL Cafe! Parking is a challenge so be ready to go to another location if parking proves impossible or the wait line is too much.

    Although the original Kerbey Lane is small, it's quite cozy. The portion sizes seem to be bigger at this location in comparison to the others. Huge fluffy pancakes! Yum :)

    Hands down the best breakfast in ATX. I am a sucker for eggs benedict. With their seasonal menu, i can always order it without getting bored.

    Authentic Austin! Make sure to do the original on Kerbey Lane. Any place that has a "The Great Pumpkin Menu" from October into the New Year is my kind of place.

    I love this original Kerbey Lane location! It is much more low key and enjoyable. They have amazing pancakes, queso and sweet potato fries!

    Awesome! Two of us ordered 3 egg whites, dry whole wheat toast and split a fruit. One coffee. Around $10. Love the Austin vibe there.

    Go here for breakfast and get the "MIGAS". I must've eaten this 1-2 times a week. There's a couple Kerbey's around ATX so look around again.

    If you wants something a little spicy, try the Chicken Tortilla Soup, it's amazing! Oh and ask for a yeast roll, they're delicious!

    If you go on a sunday, it would be best to call in at least 10 min before you get here, so you can put yourself on the list.

    Pumpkin pancakes with cinnamon swirl are the best part of winter, and then lemon poppy seed pancakes return in the spring.

    Pancakes? Awesome. Kerbey Queso? Even more awesome. Late night munchies...? Don't get me started. This location rocks, but you can never get enough kerbey anywhere!!!

    Drizzle some Kerbey Queso on a Veggie-rizo and egg breakfast taco to get your day started. Oh and a cold orange juice to guzzle down that yumminess!

    Migas are pretty meh. The flour tortillas are awesome. Kerbey queso's pretty good but it's a lot of chips. Order it for 3-4 people if you wanna keep eating.

    This is the original Kerbey Lane, on Kerbey Lane. Best place for a 3am stack of pancakes, served by Austin's tattoo and nose ring crowd. Best place to go eat when the nightclubs close. Read more
