Favorite Places to Eat Breakfast in Dripping Springs

We once again asked the community of Dripping Springs to share their favorite places to grab breakfast around town. The city’s morning array includes breakfast tacos, pancakes, plates of migas, sausages, biscuits, and so much more.

Here are Dripping Springs’ favorite breakfast restaurants, which means diner classics at Oak Creek Cafe, hearty offerings from Rolling in Thyme and Dough, Tex-Mex findings from El Rey, morning crepes from Crepe Crazy , and brunch basics from The Switch.

To kick off the most important meal of the day, we’ll start with every Texan's favorite meal, tacos.

FLORES TACO SHACK #1 - serves up just that, tacos.

Located next to the Dripping Springs High School, it’s a favorite of students and locals alike and has a cult-like following. Order classic breakfast taco favorites like bacon, egg, and cheese, or their mighty tiger taco (sausage, bacon, chorizo, and egg). Orders are placed at the outdoor counter. Takeout or dine-in at the outdoor picnic tables.


The curated menu features several tasty crepes to satisfy cravings of both savory and sweet. Their breakfast crepe menu is served until 2 pm and features a Norwegian crepe, a crepe parfait as well as a fiesta crepe with black beans, chorizo, and scrambled eggs. Crepe Crazy also blends up fresh and delicious fruit smoothies daily. Crepe Crazy is currently offering curbside pickup or delivery.

As with all businesses right now, be sure to call ahead to make sure each restaurant is still open or if there are updates on current offerings and service models, as things are changing all the time. Of course, make sure to wear a mask, tip well, and, if you’re ordering delivery, try to order directly from the restaurant themselves.
