Alamo Drafthouse Village

American CafeMidtown$10-$25

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

The Omelettry

American CafeMidtownUnder $10

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.
