Austin may not be known for its diner scene, but there are several options in town to get fluffy pancakes and many preparations of eggs all day and hearty meatloaf by night, often served with a big side of nostalgia.
Several longtime favorite restaurants in Austin are diners: the Omelettry has been open for over 45 years and Kerbey Lane Cafe has served its famed pancakes for over 40 years. (Unfortunately, many of the city’s classic diners have closed in recent years — RIP to the Frisco, the Lake Austin location of Magnolia Cafe, and Nau’s.) There are also modernized takes on diner fare like the yeasty waffles from 24 Diner or the grilled vegetable sandwich from Counter Cafe. Read on for the best bets for diners in Austin.Read More
