Whether you like your eggs sunny side up or scrambled, these three Main Street morning mainstays are sure to knock your sunrise socks off!

Ajo Restaurant

This place is delicious folks and they serve brunch for a full four hours on Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Does it get any better? Not a chance! And just in case you can’t take our word for it, we selected a few of their most mouthwatering menu items. Take a gander:

French Toast: Served up right with a black cherry vanilla reduction. Yumm-o!

Biscuits and Gravy: Delicious scratch-made biscuits topped with an over-the-top-good pork belly green chile gravy.

Lobster Mac: Sometimes food doesn’t need much of a description for you to know it’s something you just absolutely need. This is one of those times. Get. Here. Now!

Rock Sports Bar

Serving up their brunch menu from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Rock Sports Bar makes sure you’ve got plenty of time to treat your tastebuds to weekend-worthy breakfast. Plus, they’ve got $2 mimosas and a $4 house Bloody Mary! Below are a few of our favorite items from their menu:

Migas: Eggs, cheese, pico de gallo, and tortilla chips served with refried beans, potatoes and warm tortillas.

Breakfast Burger: A classic Angus Beef burger with your choice of cheese topped with an egg, bacon, lettuce and tomato. Served with one side.

Belgian Waffle: Pure deliciousness topped with fresh fruit and powered sugar. Served with your choice of bacon, sausage links or ham.


Weekends at Svante’s are just. plain. delicious. They’re the only restaurant in the Austin area that serves grass-fed beef directly from their own ranches in Texas. Added bonus? They serve that beef right alongside with locally-grown vegetables. Yes, please! And with Sunday Brunch from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., you’ll still have enough time to sleep in a little before you swing on down here to grab a bite. Weekend brunch not enough? They also serve up a breakfast buffet Tuesday through Friday from 7 to 10 a.m. Check out a few of our favorites dishes:

Steak and Eggs Benedict: A crowd-favorite, beautiful benny features house-made hollandaise, grass fed steak, poached egg, asparagus & a buttermilk biscuit.

Swedish Pancakes: 3 delicious perfect pancakes wrapped in house-made jam, whipped cream & maple syrup.

Corned Beef Hash and Eggs: An absolute breakfast classic, this dish features house-made corned beef, potatoes, onion & bell pepper, two eggs any style and a side of toast.
