Our Story

One of the most frequent questions we get here at Kerbey Lane Cafe is, “Where is the original location?” Most are surprised to learn it’s a quaint little house in Central Austin on a street named–you guessed it–Kerbey Lane.

We first opened our doors to the Austin community on May 5, 1980, serving made-from-scratch comfort food out of a small 1930s bungalow in Central Austin.

For the first few months of business, the original location operated as a restaurant and housed a cozy apartment for our founders, David and Patricia. The beloved original location still stands and thrives today as an Austin landmark.

Kerbey Lane Cafe remains 100% family-owned to this day and we continue to stay true to our original values of serving delicious meals that are thoughtfully-sourced, scratch-made, and affordable while welcoming all who come through our doors.

In December of 2018, we proudly opened our doors to our eighth location in the bustling Mueller neighborhood of Austin.
