Flat Track Coffee

Coffee shop
Worth a detour

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.

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.
