On my first morning in Austin, my friend who is an Austin native, had us meet her for brunch at Jacoby’s in East Austin.  With puppy in tow, we joined a group of in-the-know Austinites for a relaxing brunch on the back patio which felt more like a friends backyard.  The patio itself had a great rustic feel with upgrades like refreshing fans to keep away the summer heat.  The grassy private yard of the restaurant overlooked the Colorado River, something we had been following since our drive from Arizona.

Owner, Adam Jacoby, serves family raised meats from his family’s ranch in Melvin, Texas with locally sourced vegetables for a ranch-to-table experience full of country favorites.  While creating the space, interior designer Kris Swift, included reclaimed wood from the barns on the ranch as well as bricks from a former bank in downtown Melvin.  These accents, paired with custom neon signs, make for an updated feel.

TO EAT (for brunch)
Biscuits & gravy
Chicken Fried Steak & Waffles (somehow it was even better with syrup on top)
Strawberry Pancakes
Steak & Eggs

Jacoby’s Mercantile is connected to the restaurant and offers a unique assortment of vintage and local handmade goods including jewelry, pet accessories, housewares, and gifts.  My friend picked up a set of blue mason jar glasses which we had on our table during lunch.
