3. High Note 

Best weekday breakfast in Austin: High Note

High Note is the healthy foods concept behind the Kerbey Lane cafe, and it’s a great option for you if you’ve been to Kerbey Lane too many times to count and you want to try something different!

They offer the breakfast menu all day, so stop in any time to try superfood oats and berries, sweet potato migas, and “edamole” toast. They have lots of special diet items, like vegetarian, paleo, and gluten-free options.

4. Josephine House

https://Best weekday breakfast in Austin: Josephine House

So charming! Josephine House is an American restaurant inside a little renovated cottage. It’s a lovely little place to start your morning.

This is a good option or a special breakfast date, as it’s a bit pricier: around $16/entree, and every dish is beautifully prepared.

Josephine House is the sister restaurant to Austin’s original fine dining establishment, Jeffrey’s. It has the same upscale feel in a slightly brighter, more modern setting. (Bring a camera – everything here looks so darn good on instagram with the pretty white tables and natural light.)

This is one of the most iconic weekend brunch spots in Austin, but they’re also open for weekday breakfast. Huffington Post said they have one of the Top 10 Bloody Marys in America, and you’ve gotta try that carrot cake french toast.

This little 1950s-style diner is owned by the Winebelly group, so you know it’s good! Phoebe’s Diner has big portions, low prices, and friendly, relaxed service.

Their breakfast items include classics like buttermilk flapjacks and bacon and eggs, as well as fancier items like a coffee smoked brisket burrito, served with a side of hash browns. This is one of my personal favorite breakfast places in town!

Hello, Austin classic! You have to try Kerbey Lane at least once…but if you have little ones in your family, odds are you’ve been here many, many times. 

They have all the breakfast classics you crave: big stacks of pancakes, breakfast tacos, French toast, Benedicts, omelets, biscuits, chilaquiles, and pretty much any other breakfast plate you can think of.

9. Patika

Patika is technically a coffee shop, but they have an AMAZING breakfast program with their food trailer that’s permanently parked in the back patio.

The weekday breakfast is slightly different than the weekend brunch, but there are still lots of goodies offered like avocado toast, several breakfast sandwiches, and a daily waffle.

This has been one of the most unexpected, pleasant surprises I’ve found in the Austin breakfast scene!

10. 24 Diner

Don’t let the greasy spoon name fool you: 24 Diner uses fresh, local produce from nearby farms to whip up some of the most delectable breakfast plates in the city. 

You can get all of the classics, like French toast, waffles, and omelets, but 24 Diner also offers healthier options, like a delicious veggie frittata.

This sweet little French cafe has two locations in Austin (and a third in San Marcos), and it’s one of my favorite places to meet a friend for a breakfast date. Breakfast is served all day, so sometimes I’ll get a frittata for lunch!

12. Counter Cafe (2 locations: downtown and east austin)

Best weekday breakfast spots in Austin: Counter Cafe

Holy moly….they have one of the best burgers in the state of Texas! But their breakfast isn’t too shabby either. Expect big, filling portions of comfort diner food, like a fried chicken biscuit or hotcakes. The original location downtown is literally just a long counter, plus a few tables. The east location has a bit more room. Both are fun!

13. Holy Roller (downtown)

Anything connected to the South Congress Hotel is going to be gorgeous….Café No Sé is no exception. It’s a typical modern cafe with all your favorites, but dishes are amped up with something special: ricotta pancakes with bananas and pecan butter, avocado toast topped with a soft boiled egg, créme fraîche, and aleppo carrots, and the oh-so-instagramable No Sé burger served on a buttermilk bun are just a few of their weekday items.

The most surprising thing, to me, about this Japanese coffee house is the depth and complexity of their food program! Their toast is the best I’ve ever had in Austin. It’s made on Japanese milk bread, which is imported from a bakery in Chicago, loaded with intriguing toppings, and served warm and fluffy. You can also order Rosen’s Bagels here (best bagels in town!), yogurt, oatmeal, and assorted pastries.
