Tasty Tuesdays: Best Austin Brunch
Where do you like to get your brunch on? There are so many options, yet I found myself at a loss this weekend. For one, Sunday brunch happened on Monday since it was Labor Day. Also, my 80 lb. black lab/great dane was with me so I needed a spot with a dog-friendly patio.
I went with Galaxy Cafe and it served the needs of my friends, my dog, and I nicely. The food was good but they really won my heart when they brought out a doggie bowl filled with water for Lucy. Other dog friendly spots recommended by Michelle and Jennie, fellow food bloggers and dog lovers, included Mulberry, Max’s Wine Dive, NXNW, Opal Divines, and Zax.
Spots in Austin that consistently turn out some good brunch food include 1886 Cafe and Bakery, Austin Diner, Casa de Luz, Chez Zee, Eastside Cafe, Enoteca Vespaio, Kerbey Lane, Magnolia, Moonshine, The Omlettry, South Congress Cafe, Tacodeli, Z’Tejas,
Some of my favorites, no matter my mood, include 24 Diner, Annie’s, Counter Cafe, Flip Happy Crepes.
Great spots for celebrations (read: pricier) include Fonda San Miguel, Green Pastures, Lamberts, TRIO at the Four Seasons.
On my list to check out are FINO, Frank, Jack Allen’s, Mulberry, Olivia, Paggi House, Perla’s, Rio’s Brazilian, Tacos and Tequila.
What is your favorite brunch spot in Austin, and what do you like to order? If I had to answer my own question, right now it would be 24 diner. I love everything I’ve had on that menu — particularly the egg sandwich and the fried chicken and waffles. You can read all about my love for 24 diner here.
Also, they only serve real maple syrup. You would be surprised at how many brunch places only offer syrup with high fructose corn syrup without the option of maple. This is a very big deal to me and will be addressed in a future blog post.
So ignore the mini-rant and tell me about your favorite brunch establishments and dishes in the ATX!Tags: brunch
