    Try the Eggs Francisco - Calling this a "breakfast favorite" is an understatement. Any english muffin layered with scrambled eggs, bacon, tomato, avocado and queso is pure heaven. ~HomeStyleAustin.com

    My favorite since I was a kid is the Harvest omelette with green peppers, 2 kinds of onions, mushrooms, cheese and avocado with a side of sour dough toast with strawberry jam!

    Great food if you can tolerate the chaos of getting a table. This place would greatly benefit from a reservation system. The various eggs benedict and pumpkin pancakes are to die for.

    Pancakes are yummy but my favorite is the Portobello omelette. Service is a little slow and wait terrible on weekends but so worth it. Plus grab some of their pancake mix to go!

    Vegan pancakes available every day. Soymilk for coffee. Curious meat-eaters: get vegan sloppy joes. Avoid the tofu scramble, unless you *really* like the taste of nutritional yeast flakes.

    Hungry for breakfast? Try a local spot, Kerbey Lane, the coffee is always good and the breakfasts are amazing and served 24x7. Gingerbread or Blueberry pancakes - yum!

    Eggs Francisco. Can't go wrong. Also, if the cinnamon roll pancakes are available, you must indulge your tastebuds. They don't disappoint.

    Nathan T. Was my server today. I had the pleasure of sitting idle looking down at a plate of cold food while he socialized with a table discussing linguistics. Friendly? Yes Attentive? No.

    Don't go on Sunday after church it takes an hour just to get a seat!! But if you do go the pancakes and French toast are phenomenal.

    The cinnamon roll pancakes are by far the best. I love all the Kerbey Lanes, but the service at this location is especially slow.

    The vegan pancakes (any flavor) are to die for-they taste like fortune cookies in pancake form! I'm not a big fan of the seasoning they use in the soysage/tofu scramble/hippie burger, though.

    combo only served to show me that I don't like most of their "normal" breakfast food. Sausage was terrible, bacon wasn't much better.. Cold toast... KLC is living on their past success. IMHO
