Native Highlight: @atxbrunches
Brunch goes up there with some of the most life-changing inventions of all time. There's the wheel, there's the car, and then there's brunch. It's this magical time between breakfast and lunch where you basically can choose whatever the heck you want!
The Austin brunch scene is on fire and Jess Watson, owner of ATX Brunches (@atxbrunches) is leading the way. Built with the mission to discover all the top brunch places in Austin, Jess has been uncovering one hidden gem after another.
We're highlighting why she started ATX brunches and giving you the inside scoop on her tops spots in Austin!
The Inspiration Behind The Account
Instagram is a great resource for finding cool places in Austin, but what happens when you have something specific in mind - like new brunch places? That was the problem Jess faced that lead her to creating @atxbrunches.
In 2015, she took her passion for brunch and the city of Austin and created an account specifically for uncovering the best brunch spots in the city. As huge brunch fans ourselves, we can't get enough of her high quality photos of top brunch dishes!
What got you so hooked on the Austin food scene?
When we asked Jess about why the Austin food scene is so incredible, she proceeded to rattle off reason after reason. She explained that there are so many different type of food (and brunch options) that even though she gets to brunch 2 to 3 times a week, the list seems to be growing! Austin is definitely a city that prides itself on being "different" and their brunches definitely fit the mold.
As pretty big coffee drinkers ourselves, coffee only once a week seems unobtainable, but we can definitely agree that the latte art is a spectacle in its own right! Barista's are magicians when it comes to the pictures they can paint in a latte. It's a skill we definitely envy!
