No matter when you're hankering for some home-cooked breakfast food, Nana's Cafe has you covered?the chefs cook up their breakfast menu all day. They transform eggs into omelets bursting with olives and jalape?os, and tuck scrambled eggs into burritos and quesadillas with plenty of gooey cheese. They'll even use just the egg whites for a healthier bite. The kitchen?s griddles also spin out french toast and pancakes packed with chocolate chips and blueberries. Come lunchtime, chefs bolster the menu with burgers and sandwiches filled with barbecue pulled pork, blackened chicken, and made-from-scratch tuna salad. Customers can enjoy their food in the caf??s dining room, or order it for pickup at the drive-thru window or the nearest post office.
Crickle's and Co. treats visitors to breakfasts and brunches defined by a farm-to-table ethic. Every bite of an egg-and-applewood smoked bacon taco or blueberry muffin is a testament to simpler times—times when people knew exactly where their food came from, meals were family gatherings, and parents had to ask kids to be excused from the table. Local, preservative-free cream, eggs, and butter find their way into menu items such as egg sandwiches, bacon-stuffed tortillas, and fluffy, fresh-baked muffins. Texas pecans put the crunch in banana-nut bread, and locally roasted coffee and organic tea from Austin pair perfectly with homemade pastries. Outside Crickle's walls, its catered meals grace corporate events, baby showers, and birthday parties with feasts of Texas-style barbecue, 15-layer lasagna, and bite-size brownies and cheesecakes.
In the quaint little dining room of Sidewalk Bistro, dark wooden tabletops are arranged along a black-and-white checkered floor. Small booths line one wall, and a long counter stretches along another. It's dark outside, but that doesn't stop a server from emerging from the kitchen with a plate stacked with fluffy blueberry pancakes.
Comforting breakfast foods are something most people crave no matter what the time, so Sidewalk Bistro serves them all day, in addition to a massive menu of lunch and dinner options made from scratch. Half-pound burgers and Southern-fried catfish vie for attention with breakfast tacos and grits—all of which threaten to completely eliminate appetites before slices of French silk pie arrive.
If you know them, you know their breakfast. Filled with banana-Nutella crepes to berry-covered waffles to migas topped with aged cheddar, the menu proves that when they call themselves Frisco's premier breakfast, they aren't just whistling dixie. But they go on to prove they aren't just breakfast with lunch options that include herb-marinated chicken breast with provolone, a cuban chicken panini with chipotle mayo, and fish tacos with cilantro cream and Cajun rice.
Flavors from around the world converge at Oasis Café, from the grilled lamb and beef of Greek gyros to the sweet chili sauce of Thai chicken. Sandwiches and wraps emphasize organic and natural ingredients, and both meat and vegetarian options are well-represented. Coffee splashes tongues in hot, iced, or blended forms, as in the Oasis macchiato, which swirls caramel and vanilla into double espresso. The aromas of freshly baked muffins and percolating soups drift across the long wood counter and over checkered booths, where diners groove to soft jazz melodies so they don’t have to bridge conversational lulls with knock-knock jokes that might offend people who live in tents.
Roots Coffeehouse serves up coffee, teas, and a broad array of espresso-based drinks and complements its potable pleasures with friendly service and a variety of edible options. The shop's menu draws upon three different types of espresso—a single-origin, a blended, and a decaf—to provide savvy sippers with an extra degree of customization to their order. Organic and fair-trade coffee and teas are also available to help keep consciences light and fluffy. Order up a honey vanilla latte ($3.85 for a medium) for a sweet kiss of bee syrup without the danger and mess of personally milking the bees, then pair your vanilla-fueled brainpower with Roots' free WiFi. Frozen drinks such as raspberry mocha or vanilla bean frappes ($4 for a medium) help the overheated mock the impotent sun. A food menu featuring fresh-baked pastries and muffins, as well as a quartet of sandwiches ($7.00), is also available to help customers practice one-handed hunger-avoidance maneuvers.
