When thinking of Austin cool and legendary, Magnolia Cafe South tops the list. A 24 hour diner which is consistently good for breakfast, lunch, dinner or late night dining. It’s hard to pick a favorite, but breakfast served all day is hard to beat. Try the Love Migas, along with one of their pancakes, and keep an eye out for celebrities, as the last one seen eating at Magnolia was Alton Brown.
No matter what time of day or night, there is a consistent line at Magnolia Cafe South. Right next door is Prima Dora, a perfect place to peruse through gifts, cards, Austin landmark items, and more. Once tables are ready, the host’s voice is piped into the shop, so there’s no need to worry about missing out on a table.
TIP: Open Mon-Fri from 10am-6pm and Sat-Sun from 9am-6pm.
Next door to Prima Dora is Bird’s Barbershop, a locally owned company with 5 different locations offering an amazing haircut or color along with a free beer and arcade games. How can you go wrong? So, if the wait is long at South Congress Cafe, pop into Bird’s for a haircut while enjoying a Shiner…perfect. Pssst…and Macklemore & Elija Wood were seen here last year during SXSW.
TIP: Walk in or Call Ahead at 512.445.0500. Hours Mon-Fri from 9am-8pm; Sat 9am-7pm and Sun 10am-6pm.
All 3 locations located within 200 feet of each other at 1920 South Congress.
