austin, texas : kerbey lane cafe.

one of our must stops while in austin was kerbey lane cafe. there are a couple different locations, but we ventured down to the one on s. lamar blvd.

why was this a must stop? it came highly recommended & they have lots of vegan options.

kerbey lane is another one of those places with a separate vegan menu... besides the fact that there already are vegan items on the regular menu. all in all, great news!

here's what i had ...

 chips & vegan queso :
 i was really looking forward to this all trip. i mean, vegan queso?! ... i had no idea what to expect. the queso was good, but not great. it wasn't gooey enough for me ... more just like a spicy dip than a queso. but that's ok. it was also like 10:30 in the morning. but hey, don't judge.

vegan breakfast platter :
tofu scrambled with seasonal fresh veggies & nutritional yeast, paired with vegan orange spice pancakes & scratch-made soysage.
i enjoyed my breakfast platter much more. the tofu scramble & soysage were both good, but the real star was the pancakes. when i heard the special was orange spice, i was not excited. just not that into citrus in this context. but let me tell you, they were delicious. 

i'm not going to lie. i wasn't so obsessed with my food at kerbey lane. but that doesn't mean it wasn't solid vegan food. i still highly recommend visiting if you are in austin ... here's another reason why :

"we have a long & proud history of supporting local farmers & ranchers and sourcing ingredients from local suppliers ... we also recognize our role as a citizen of the global community & we try to be good stewards for our environment by maintaining an active recycling & composting program, using energy efficient light bulbs & equipment and donating excess food to charity rather than allowing it to go waste."

that in itself is awesome. check them out.
