Apartment Living BlogFood & Entertaining › The Best Brunch Spots in Austin

Austinites love their breakfast tacos, but sometimes we want a fancier brunch experience, complete with mimosas or Bloody Marys. Fortunately, almost every corner of Austin has brunch options, whether you’re craving sweets like French Toast or more savory brunch fare like Eggs Benedict. And naturally, there are plenty of Tex Mex favorites like migas or huevos rancheros. We wish we could feature every last one, but we’ve chosen a few favorites to share with you!

Bouldin Creek Coffeehouse & Cafe | South First

With its quirky décor featuring local artists, dog-friendly patio and vegan-friendly menu, Bouldin Creek is a hit amongst Austin’s hippie or hipster set. But even carnivores can appreciate the varied menu, organic fair trade coffee, and affordable drinks. Start the day off right with a slice of vegan blueberry cornbread, the Bouldin House Omelet (available with pasture-raised eggs or tofu scramble), or a breakfast taco with house-made veggie chorizo. A small mimosa will set you back $3, but if you’re feeling more adventurous, the Pink Lady (rose champagne) or Purple Lady (lavender champagne) riff on the classic mimosa. Breakfast is served all day.

Open Monday-Friday from 7AM-midnight and Saturday and Sunday 8AM-midnight

Fixe | Downtown Austin

If you’re seeking Southern Comfort food, Fixe is the place to go for Sunday brunch. Known for its biscuits with whipped butter, this posh restaurant also serves three mouth-watering variations on grits (the herbivore with garlicky kale and salsa verde, the carnivore with Texas quail and pickled peaches and the pescavore with Texas shrimp and corn) and sweets such as the Brioche French Toast with honey foie gras butter. Fixe’s inventive Southern spirit also extends to its cocktail menu with options including a BBQ Bacon Bloody and a Creamsicle Mimosa.

Open Monday-Thursday from 4-10PM, Friday-Saturday 4PM-11PM and Sunday 11AM-9PM

Yellow Jacket Social Club | East Austin

Yellow Jacket Social Club’s woodsy patio and picnic tables feel like a day at summer camp —except you can order a beer while you wait for your food. Choose from brunch favorites like shrimp and grits, French Toast with cognac custard, or the daily frittata. It’s an utterly relaxed and unpretentious spot for nursing a hangover as you enjoy weekend brunch.

Open daily 11AM-2AM
