Fast, cheap, and no-frills, Red River Cafe is the ideal decompression site after a too-crazy night on the town. With whole sandwiches available under $5, and pancakes less expensive than that, you can roll in and dine like a king with the change on your car's dashboard.
If eggs are what you crave during your hangover, welcome to egg heaven: The Omelettry is a father/son operation that has existed on Burnet long before Rosedale was chic, and serves up reliably soft, non-spongy omeletes. I'm a salt lover so my favorite is the "Black Olive," filled with olives, lemon sour cream and cheese. Decadent, eh?
Time has stopped inside The Frisco. Here, deviled eggs never went out of style, it's still kosher to eat steak for breakfast, and the waitress's bangs are high. All kidding aside though, the service is marvelous at The Frisco and the food is tasty diner fare. I come here all the time with family, and we always walk out smiling.
Austin's quintessential greasy spoon recently moved into new digs, and while a few menu items are still working out some kinks, this hangover breakfast has remained steadfast: "The California." A humongous, delicious plate of mushrooms, cheese, spinach, onions, black olives and avocado hash browns and eggs. Split this with your favorite drinking buddy.
More a cafe than a diner proper, Tino's is still the perfect place to satisfy a greasy craving (hello, lamb kabobs). But rather than biscuits, it's falafel; rather than gravy, it's baba ganoush. Think of it as the morning-after breakfast for Mediterraneans.
Should you ever find yourself in Hutto, make a stop at this throwback gem. It consistently wins honors in magazines like Southern Living and Texas Highways, winning skeptics over one gooey blackberry cobbler at a time.
Do holes-in-the-wall actually exist in Cedar Park? Yes. Yes they do. Exhibit A: Gloria's Cafe, where breakfast is available all day, carne guisada is flavorful, and one single platter could probably feed your whole familia.
Hey there, Round Rock! Look at you getting all culinary, with your pesto-topped hamburgers and brisket-stuffed omelets, daringly paired with havarti. Stop by this little diner for a nice foodie surprise - it's menu offerings are edgier than you'd think.
Galaxy Cafe is a "diner" the same way that Drink.Well is a "pub:" I.e., much nicer than the humble moniker implies. Food is pricier here, but fancier, too: think smoked gouda on the wraps, and fresh basil in the quiche.
