After some 30 years, The Omelettry
continues to shine as a favorite breakfast stop with a friendly, funky atmosphere. The pancakes are terrific. Choose from gingerbread, whole wheat, andmy favoritebuttermilk with bananas and chocolate chips. I also love their oatmeal served all the way with brown sugar, cinnamon, butter, and raisins, as well as the House Special omelet (with sautéed mushrooms, onions, bell peppers, ham, and cheese) and the Popeye (with spinach, of course). Like writer John Gunthers quote on the restaurants menu says, All happiness depends upon a leisurely breakfast. This place is a welcome refuge and, quite possibly, Austin at its finest.
