The newest addition to the Lamplighter family, Pepita is a new café concept housed in the front taproom and offering a full espresso menu, rotating cold brews on tap, and specialty iced drinks (micheladas anyone?). Our food menu is centered around Austin-inspired breakfast tacos; these Southwestern staples feature simple, flavorful, and fresh ingredients, combining Tex-Mex cuisine with morning essentials like pillowy scrambled eggs, crispy bacon, and diner-style breakfast potatoes, all wrapped up in a soft tortilla. Inexpensive, easy, and fast, these might just be the most portable breakfast around.
Alternative eats include a spread of housemade pastries and our take on the avocado toast, made on a crispy tostada and topped with cotija, pickled onion, and roasted pepitas. We may close at 3p but Lamplighter taps open at 11a, allowing for a seamless transition from cuppa to pint… and then another pint… seven days a week. Please note that we do not take reservations and that all taproom seating is on a first come, first serve basis. Here’s to community, coffee, and comida! We can’t wait to meet you.
