Heard about this place ... you have to go their for Sunday Brunch - was what we were told... but cant see why... it was fine... pancakes were just ok, and the other meals were fine but nothing special. Was nice but have had better. Also the toilets were filthy and they kept having to put up signs for people... More

This was my first visit to this location. I ordered the Greek Lamb Burger with sweet potato fries and water. The burger was dry and overcooked. The sweet potato fries were delicious. They don't have sweet tea- shame! The prices are decent. The service was slow and very inattentive. I guess since they are across from the university they don't... More

Great breakfast menu from traditional fare to not so traditional. I had the Crispy Chicken Benedict and it was great. Service was great. The negative I have is the parking is very limited, but it is next to UT and a majority of the traffic is foot traffic but yet there was still no available parking onsite.

They are busy, but courteous and friendly. Great price for the food you get. I tend to stick to a few favorites but I tried some new things and love them!!!

We lucked out with only about a 10 minute wait on our last day in town for a late breakfast/early lunch. Busy staff, but we enjoyed our variety of breakfast foods at the table like the brekfast tacos, french toast, bacon, pancake special, and eggs. The pancakes are ridiculously huge and a little too dense and dry for my liking,... More

I brought my daughter here for a late lunch when in town over the holidays. Despite a lack of parking, and an awkward wait without being greeted, the restaurant was mostly empty. We were eventually seated at a recently-wiped but still-dirty table. Our server was friendly. Our food was OK. I had a sandwich, and my daughter had the fried... More

While visiting two of my sons in Austin, i was invited to eat at Kirby Lane Cafe, we decided it was closer to eat at the Guadalupe location. The meal was enjoyable, well done, and made to order, semi limited menu, but everyone enjoyed what was ordered. Breakfast menu was available all afternoon, atmosphere was trendy, parking was a challenge... More

This is supposed to be a trendy diner near the UT campus but I found it really disappointing. Nothing about the experience makes this place stand out among the dozens of "diner" style venues in Austin. Neither does it scream "UT". I found the food to be rather tasteless. For example, the chicken in my wife's panini was dry and... More
