LOCATIONS

The Omelettry

4631 Airport, 512/453-5062
Hours: Daily, 7am-5pm
Before Magnolia Cafe or Kerbey Lane, there was The Omelettry, beloved for its eggs, flapjacks, and home fries. Friends remember Doug Sahm’s irritation that his daily bowl of oatmeal was never ready when he arrived, and you probably still know someone sitting at the counter. But years-old fraternity is not responsible for lines out of the door of real frat kids; that would be the delicious gingerbread pancakes and consistently fresh ingredients. Never fear, if you have already matriculated, there is room for you, too.

Alamo Drafthouse Village

The longest continuously operated Drafthouse, the Alamo Drafthouse Village opened in 2001 on Anderson Lane before Anderson Lane was cool. The four-screen cinema specializes in first-run features, with Sony 4K digital projection allowing for both RealD 3D and 48 FPS screenings. Plus, with much of the American Genre Film Archive stored here, it also has 35mm screenings. A recent revamp added new padded chairs and shared tables for food and drink from the Drafthouse’s extensive menu delivered during screenings, and a new patio adds outdoor drinking from the bar.

2700 W. Anderson #701, 512/861-7030

Austin Diner

You could theoretically stay here all day for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Daily hot plate specials include meat loaf with Creole sauce and pork loin over cornbread dressing. Expect a wait for weekend brunch.

5222 Burnet Rd., 512/467-9552

Bartlett's

This is the kind of place you pass by without noticing. Next time you shop on West Anderson, stop in for a great prime rib or a filling, fresh Thai steak salad.
