Sugar for Breakfast

Olivia from Sugar Mama’s Bakeshop is one of my favorite small business owners in Austin. She is as sweet as the name of her shop, fun to be around, experimental with new technology, and baker of my office’s monthly birthday treats.
With her new breakfast hours and menu rolling out tomorrow, she offered to bring over some early morning treats for me and my colleagues late last week.

The lemon bundt cake was my favorite. Still warm from the oven, light and spongy, it was perfect with my morning black coffee.

Other favorites …

Snack Bar Austin Finally Opens

I was very excited to learn that Snack Bar on South Congress is officially open after months of construction, waiting, and two soft openings — one during SXSW in March and one during Austin City Limits Music Festival in early October.
I called and was told that they will be open for the next week during breakfast, lunch, and for afternoon snacktime — closing at 4 p.m. I believe their hours will stretch much later once they have a chance to hire more staff and get in the groove.
This spot, vacated …

A Pleasant Morning

On a recent weekday morning, I dropped my car off for an oil change and walked over to Thunderbird Coffee to check my sites (gmail, Twitter, Facebook), eat breakfast, and work remotely.
I’d never been to Thunderbird before but the atmosphere is nice and I think they serve good coffee. The pressed egg and cheese sandwich was nothing special but I enjoyed the change from the usual breakfast taco offering.

Mi Madre’s Para Mi Madre

I love a good breakfast taco and in my opinion, Mi Madre’s on Manor makes some of the best in Austin. Adam and I decided to surprise my mother with some breakfast deliciousness the other morning for her penultimate morning meal during a recent visit.

The breakfast tacos range in price from $2-$3.50 and we ordered four #0 tacos (bacon, potatoes, egg, and cheese), one #8 (vegetarian migas with corn chips, eggs, onions, tomatoes, jalapenos, and cheese), one #17 (pork adobado, grilled onions, and avocado).
