Kerbey Lane is one of Austin’s longtime restaurant stalwarts, providing all-hours, or at least late night and early morning meals and coffee to the city from one of the seven locations throughout the city. The cafe came to be from that other classic Austin diner, The Omelettry, when original partner Patricia Atkinson left in 1980 to open her own venture with co-owner David Ayer. (Magnolia is the Omelettry’s other child.) Currently, their son Mason Ayer is the CEO of the company.

With Breakfast Week, here is the next infographic breaking down what an early morning to late afternoon at the South Lamar location looked like. It was the second location to open, back in 1986. People really love their pancakes, especially the cinnamon swirl buttermilk ones (of which 205 were ordered), and coffee (the numbers don’t even include refills). Surprisingly, not a lot of diners went all out with full fluffy stacks of pancakes.
