Our Story

On May 5th, 1980, Kerbey Lane Cafe opened its doors for business, operating out of a small house on Kerbey Lane in north-central Austin. We’ve always sought to serve good, homemade quality food that is local, healthy and affordable while providing a welcoming and memorable experience to all who come through our doors. These simple principles have helped grow Kerbey Lane Cafe from a single location operation out of a humble house into an Austin-favorite comprised of eight restaurants spread across the Austin area.
