ATXReview

Counter Cafe is a diner-y spot we like best for daytime eating. It has two locations, and while the Lamar Street spot has a great “we’ve been here a while” feel, the newer East Side spot is better equipped for groups. Breakfast is served all day, there are plenty of healthy options, and the prices are reasonable. The Counterburger is a solid choice, and if you want to eat less/spend less, try the breakfast tacos.
