“y’all in for a real treat.” was said at least four times by our mustached, bean-pole of a server, Mot, and a treat it was. kerbey lane has, i believe, 6 locations in austin texas, and sports a menu that everyone can agree on; vegan, vegetarian, and omnivorous diner foods served 24-7, with a focus on local and organic ingredients. kerbey lane reminded me of what i think a perkins, or similar chain would resemble if run by decent, sustainably focused individuals.
the menu was easy to navigate, and there was a separate gluten free menu as well.
we arrived at 6:30 am, just in time to hit the early bird menu. it says ‘no substitutions’ on the bottom, but Mot, being the ever-amazing server laced with sugar as he was, got our early bird breakfasts upgraded to vegan for .50c. what a doll.
i really should have turned the plate around. whoops. *ps, those are tortillas in the aluminum foil.
dan’s breakfast platter came with a short stack of cinnamon peach pancakes, tofu scramble, veggie soysage, and a side of verde sauce.
the meals were super filling- i barely finished half- tasty, and affordable to boot. and, i was able to down at least 5 cups of coffee. heaven. i love verde sauce, and i LOVE that it’s everywhere in texas. i also love the super original cashew queso that was served- it had a grainy texture, but it was grainy in a good way- and being that it was cashew based it had this nice, rich umami flavor to it. i could have mixed the two together and ate it straight up!
sadly, i dont crave sweets in the a.m., and the desserts all seemed to contain gluten, but here was the dessert menu.
