They say the early bird often gets the worm. By visiting these Austin restaurants, early risers can get a tasty meal to start the day and support their community at the same time. Whether you’re in the mood for biscuits, tacos, or eggs, you’ll find something yummy at these dining establishments near our Austin apartments:
Biscuits + Groovy
These aren’t your typical biscuits with gravy. Biscuits + Groovy offers unique twists to classic breakfast dishes with one or three-biscuit options. Located just past the intersection of South Lamar and Barton Springs Road, this food truck is a five-minute walk from Cole Apartments. Guests can order a one-biscuit dish like The M.C. Hammer, served with two scrambled eggs, bacon or sausage, and a sprinkle of cheese and chives. Meanwhile, the three-biscuit options are more indulgent. You can top your biscuits with gravy, eggs, bacon, cheese, jalapenos, potatoes, or sausages.
With its proximity to Cole, your breakfast will still be hot when you enjoy it in your apartment. Plus, you’ll work up an appetite on the way back. Order online or over the phone before the food truck closes at 2:00 p.m.
If you’re looking for homegrown, organic food to start your day, this is the place to go. Counter Cafe serves traditional diner fare with a 21st-century spin. Mindful eaters can order fruit with granola or vegan porridge. Meanwhile, crab cake Benedict, breakfast tacos, and fried chicken biscuits are available for those craving a hearty breakfast.
Although there are three locations in Austin, takeout orders can only be placed by phone at the East 6th Street and West 29th Street locations. DoorDash is available for delivery if you don’t feel like venturing out into the city. Note that Counter Cafe only serves breakfast until 3:00 p.m., so be sure to place your order by then.
Holy Roller is Counter Cafe’s rebellious rock star counterpart. This downtown restaurant on Rio Grande Street takes popular comfort food dishes and turns them into offbeat culinary creations. For breakfast, try biscuits with pimento cheese or a Migas Kolache (scrambled eggs and tortilla strips stuffed into a yeast-dough pastry).
Gluten-free eaters can start their day with steak and eggs or yellow cake pancakes. Holy Roller opens at 9:00 a.m. on the weekends, and 11:00 a.m. during the week. So, it’s an ideal choice for brunch or a late breakfast. Order online for takeout service.
With so many restaurants nearby, you’ll have no issue finding a delicious breakfast to enjoy at home. At Cole Apartments, you’re never too far from amazing Austin restaurants.
