Austin Maple Syrup Guide
The Austin restaurants listed below all serve breakfast and/or brunch. Some offer maple syrup, others offer corn, and a few provide both. This list focuses on whether or not the establishments serve maple syrup.

If you notice any errors in the list, or if you have information about a change in any restaurants syrup offerings, I’d appreciate it if you would leave a comment below, or send me an email.
- In early 2011, of the 53 restaurants I surveyed, 25 offered maple syrup (47%); the current list includes 63 restaurants, with 34 offering maple (54%). We’re headed in the right direction, friends!
- Removed restaurants that have closed since 2011 include Austin Diner, Fran’s Hamburgers, and Haddington’s, Manny Hattan’s; none offered a maple syrup option.
- Added the following restaurants that do offer maple: Steeping Room, Swift’s Attic, Whole Foods Market Lamar
- Added the following restaurants that do not carry maple: Bacon, Banger’s, The Bonneville, Bouldin Creek Cafe, East 12th Kafe, Freda’s, Jack Allen’s Kitchen, Lucky J’s, Salt & Time, Taverna, Wildwood
- Added Takoba and Zandunga to the list. Neither serve maple syrup although Takoba’s french toast comes with caramelized bananas and guajillo honey.
- Added Central Market Cafe (thanks @txcooking for the suggestion). However, their thick cut french toast comes with the fake stuff. You can buy real maple in the grocery store and bring it in, though.
- Updated status of Chez Zee after learning from a reader that they charge $4.95 for real maple syrup (source: online brunch menu).
- Coverage in the Austin Business Journal on my “Maple Mission.” The article notes that of the 53 restaurants I surveyed, 25 serve maple syrup, five of which charge extra for it.
- Created this page in order to track maple syrup availability at Austin restaurants.
