Neighborhood: East Austin
Cuisine: Mexican

If you're anywhere near East Austin's Manor Road, El Chilito is the perfect morning pit stop. This refreshingly simple cafe serves patrons through a walk-up window and offers outdoor seating only. Piping hot breakfast tacos are their claim to fame, but the migas plate and the cochinita pibil burrito (braised pork) are also delicious. The ever-crowded eatery also stocks paletas—Mexican ice popsicles made with fruit or flavored cream. While you wait, watch the speed at which the cooks prepare made-to-order plates or relax on the shady covered patio. East Austinites spend mornings at El Chilito, sipping coffee and reading the newspaper, usually with a dog under their feet. Go early on Saturdays to beat the crowd: an El Chilito breakfast taco is a favorite hangover food. -Sarah Murray
