Mexican Breakfast in Austin on Weekends

Elie Oct 11, 2005 03:00 PM

I will be in Austin for 24 hours soon, and I am looking for a Mexican breakfast place: good handmade corn tortilla is a big plus,. I am staying in the downtown area but can go the distance for good authentic (no flash ...) Mexican that is open on a Saturday morning.

      Juan in a Million at 2300 E Cesar Chavez St (that's where you'll find me) or Joe's Bakery at 2305 E. 7th.

        Juan in a Million was great when I went last weekend. The margaritas were $3 and tasty and the bean were the porkiest I've even had. PORKY.

        If you are downtown the answer is simple--Las Manitas on Congress.

          Angie's on East 6th or 7th -- just east of I-35.... I love the really thick corn tortillas.

            Las Manitas if you can get past the baby strollers.
