Fodor's Review

This locally beloved restaurant serves a full complement of the simple breakfast/brunch foods that Austinites tend to crave at all hours. The typical selection of sandwiches, omelets, salads, and desserts is supplemented by seven enchilada options and hearty hash-brown dishes enhanced with cheese, bacon, and other ingredients. Try the Love Migas (eggs scrambled with crisp tortilla chips and fresh salsa, spiked with garlic-serrano butter and served with black beans) for

a savory treat. Breakfast, including stellar plate-filling pancakes—buttermilk, whole wheat, cornmeal, or richly luscious gingerbread—is available 24/7. Service is always friendly.

Yummmmm

Expect a wait anytime on Sunday. They seem to be known for their breakfast food but the other menu items are just as good. I have only been to the one on the south side at 1920 S Congress Ave, which is pretty small. It is an eclectic group, which is indicative of the area it resides, but I would recommend eating here then strolling down Congress and shopping at the eclectic stores. Prices are reasonable though slightly on the higher end for what

you get. Atmosphere is cozy and the food is flavorful and fresh.

Great way to start the afternoon

Admittedly, my judgment may have been affected by the degree of hunger by the time I'd dragged my teens in here for breakfast, but everybody enjoyed it. Fresh squeezed orange juice, good coffee and an overwhelmingly delicious-sounding menu, with everything we ordered meeting or exceeding the expectations it set. Decent service, reasonable prices and some pretty good people-watching for entertainment.

Breakfast all day!

Whether you need to sober up or just having the munchies in the middle of the night, this is the place to go. They have a wide variety of food selection on the menu: breakfast items (make your own breakfast tacos), Tex-Mex, even herbal teas.

FANTASTIC

For late night, or anytime eats, don't miss it. We hit the one on S. Congress. Casual, hip, a whole gamut of choices. Don't miss the fish taco (with voodoo spices)
