The Line Hotel is one of the best spots to stay in Austin. You know it’s a cool hotel when there’s only a few locations, and 1 is in LA and another one is in downtown Austin. It’s located right in the hub of Austin, and within walking distance to numerous restaurants and shops. I’m into an eccentric and intimate vibe, and this hotel has this as soon as you walk in the door. With a small, unique coffee shop, a cool pool area along with a roof top bar and one of the best breakfast taco joints in Austin…this place has everything you need for a staycation or a perfect central hub for your vacation. Enjoy!

The breakfast tacos don’t need a lot of fancy toppings as the tortillas are homemade and the ingredients are fresh. The Migas are some of the best in the Austin! It doesn’t matter if you choose their brick and morter or a food truck at one of their locations throughout the city, you are in a for a treat, and you will be addicted.
