Stopped in here half way through our Urban Adventure Quest. Got seated right away. The Brisket Hash, unfortunately had way too much, sweet BBQ sauce on top and the Burger has a weird, unidentifiable taste too it. The pecan waffle and Eggs Benedict were spot on.
The ambiance is lovely. The staff is friendly. I met my mother here on a Saturday morning for our Christmas breakfast tradition. We look forward to going for a fancier breakfast prior to Christmas. Breakfast was tasty. I really appreciate all-day menus that allow me to order off of a non-breakfast menu. I'm allergic to eggs and they don't have any breakfast options that do not include eggs. I got the poblano soup for breakfast and it was super tasty. The bowl was not entirely filling but I'm not a huge breakfast person so it was fine but it wouldn't have satisfied me had I ordered it for dinner. The coffee and pastries were phenomenal. I'm giving it less than 4 stars because while we were paying our bill, we were approached by a staff member and asked (very kindly) to leave since they had a waiting list. Our breakfast was early, 8am, to avoid having to rush due to crowds. I thought it was very off-putting to be asked to leave due to needing the table. Turnover is at the customer's discretion, not the establishment's. The woman who asked us to leave did so very graciously and kindly but it still shouldn't have happened.
1886 Cafe & Bakery is a great place to have a relaxed and enjoyable weekend brunch in an elegant, historic hotel in downtown Austin. Be sure to try the Eggs Benedict. They offer a variety of "liquid fire" from local Yellowbird Foods to spice things up if those eggs are a bit too tame for your tastes. There's almost always at least a 30 minute wait on weekends, so reserve online or send a friend ahead to get your name on the list. I found service to be polite, if a tad on the scattered-to-slow side. Food prices are reasonable for a five-star hotel. Drink prices are outrageous, however. The Eggs Benedict was $14. My Bloody Mary was $13. For brunch and a cocktail, expect to spend about $30 per person plus tip. All-in-all, it's an occasional extravagance that's worth the effort to find parking downtown.
