Counter Cafe

This tiny spot is Austin's answer to a traditional diner, except traditional diners don't offer excellent crab cakes, quail, and hanger steak alongside the biscuits, bacon, eggs (organic), and burgers. The Counter Benedict with pastrami on a biscuit and grilled pimento cheese sandwiches are standouts.– MM Pack
