Flat Track Coffee
Review by: Sara Griffith Dawson
Diamond in the rough coffee shops are some of my favorite spots to spend a Sunday morning. Flat Track Coffee in East Austin is one of the best. A bustling hybrid combining coffee with the local bike culture creates a fun, intimate atmosphere for a refreshing take on your typical weekend hangout.
What to eat at Flat Track Coffee
Though the menu is limited compared to other weekend brunch destinations, Flat Track’s dedication to fresh and healthful makes it noteworthy. I started off with a pair of breakfast tacos, available made with corn or flour tortillas: one chorizo, egg, and cheese, and one potato, egg, and cheese. The chorizo taco is seasoned wonderfully and topped with a flavorful and zesty salsa verde. The potato taco is a classic combination: the potatoes are roasted perfectly and topped with a sprinkle of bright diced peppers.
Sterling’s Special Scrambler arrives in a bowl, with eggs and potatoes ‘scrambled’ at the bottom. A bacon layer fills the middle, and a neat row of sliced avocados (garnished with fresh herbs and cracked black pepper) tops it all off. The different layers balance well, creating a healthier scramble combination that didn’t leave me wishing I had worn looser pants.
Whether you’re looking for a place to fix up your bike and grab a snack, do a little work on the road, or simply grab a cup of coffee, Flat Track Coffee has the atmosphere and ingredients to start the morning off right.
