Why waste your time with eggs in your breakfast taco when you can have carne guisada, al pastor pork, or pork carnitas? At Brazas Taco House, your lunch tacos come early. In fact, you may want to get some to go for when breakfast wears off.

Address: 6801 Airport Boulevard

7. Epoch Coffee

If you want awesome coffee in an independent coffeehouse, Epoch Coffee is where you’ll want to curl up with a good book or your laptop. Sip that delicious coffee, and soak in the atmosphere enhanced by your fellow Austinite customers.

Address: 221 West North Loop Boulevard

6. Pacha Organic Cafe

Eating organic at breakfast doesn’t mean you can only eat fruit you bought in the organic produce section at HEB. You can go to Pacha Organic Cafe to get a breakfast that’ll satisfy your stomach and your dietary preferences. Almost all their ingredients — 90% — are organic, and you won’t believe what will come out of their tiny kitchen!

4. Quack’s 43rd Street Bakery

3. Monkey Nest Organic Coffee & Bakery

While the name Monkey Nest doesn’t exactly sound appetizing, we assure you the coffee and food are. The names get better on the menu. Be sure to try one of their specialty coffees like the spiced brown sugar latte, nutty Irishman, or four ton gorilla.

Address: 5353 Burnet Road

2. Kerbey Lane Cafe

The Kerbey Lane Cafe versus Magnolia Cafe debate will never be settled. But one thing is for sure, you haven’t really been to Kerbey Lane Cafe until you’ve been to the original on its namesake street. When you think about Austin restaurants starting up back in the day, you think about a house converted into a restaurant. And that’s exactly what you’ll find at the original Kerbey. Oh, and the food is awesome!

Address: 3704 Kerbey Lane

A favorite of post-race runners, The Omelettry is THE place in Austin to order an omelette. But don’t forget about the buttermilk pancakes. You will carb load whether or not you walk in with that intention. You’ll walk out with a full belly. No wonder runners love it!

Address: 4631 Airport Boulevard, #131A
