Our Favorite Diners in ATX


Kerbey Lane

Multiple Locations
An Austin staple that’s been around since 1980, Kerbey Lane Cafe has served local, homemade comfort food prepared from natural ingredients and spiced with a healthy dose of imagination. From fun pancake flavors to their iconic Kerbey Queso, there is a little something for everyone on their menu.

Menu Must-Have: Cinnamon Swirl Pancakes

Toasty Badger

South Austin
Give a warm welcome to Austin’s newest diner, Toasty Badger. Nestled on Austin’s iconic South Congress Avenue, the casual diner offers an inviting '70s ambiance where you can enjoy oversized pancakes, towering French toast, and other beloved diner classics.

Menu Must-Have: The French Toast

Two Hands

South Congress
At Two Hands, you can get the best of both worlds. Visit their walk-up window for a tea, juice, or coffee if you’re on-the-go or grab a table inside for their dine-in service. Known for their brunch items, this Australian-inspired restaurant will fuel you up with fresh, delicious food, and your pick-me-up of choice.

East Austin
Located on what Time Out deemed as one of the “coolest streets in the world”, this Austin staple for breakfast and brunch also has both sit-down and to-go options.
