Joann’s Fine Foods is a new all-day spot from the people behind Perla’s and June’s All Day, and it’s great for brunch or drinks and a snack that somehow extends into dinner. It’s in the lobby of the Austin Motel, and from the straw awning and plants outside to the bright colored booths inside, it has a “vacation-meets-retro diner” feel. Which is also what we’d tell an interior designer to make our house look like if we could afford an interior designer. The menu is long and skews Mexican with tacos and huevos rancheros, but you can also get things like a spinach salad, french toast, or a turkey club.

Rosita's Al Pastor
Rosita's is our favorite al pastor taco in Austin, and maybe the world. Hit it for breakfast, if you know what's good for you.
Veracruz All Natural
Veracruz in East Austin makes the hands-down the greatest migas taco we’ve ever tasted. You won't be mad at the quesadillas, either.
