This funky place in a "seedy" location right next to a budget motel and I-35 is a true bargain. Come hunry! The portions are generous, and the food good. Hummus appetizer was good. Now, can we talk about the service? There was one heroic waitress doing her best, with no help. If you want fast, "smiley" service like at Olive Garden, don't come here!

Pros: Good value, comfortable atmosphere

Cons: Slow service, uneven quality (i.e., pancakes not cooked all the way through)

Big cocroach. Crawling on the wall. In the kitchen. Plain sight.

Star seeds is an old school Austin original. They are open 24/7 which makes it a great place to go after a late show on 6th St. The food is excellent. The service is irratic, but the environment is one of a kind. I love this place!

The service here is horrible and the food usually takes a while, but a great place for late-nighters, food is always suprisingly excellent for a diner and if you dont mind waiting it's a good spot!

Pros: affordable, awesome breakfast food

The Migas occupied a substantial amount more than half the plate and were piled high, crispy hash browns, and golden home fries filled the remainder of the plate, and three little containers of salsa were balanced on the edge. The impressive mountain (as opposed to a small plateau) of Migas at first glance could be construed as worrisome, conjuring up the thought that Star Seeds substitutes quantity for quality, but such a thought is banished as an egregious falsehood the second a forkful of Migas hits the taste buds. The Star Seeds? Migas are, simply put, divine. The eggs were fluffy, and mixed in with them was the perfect proportion of tortilla chips which remained just crispy enough to crunch slightly between the teeth. As for vegetables it seems that Star Seeds struck upon the brilliant idea of actually putting a good quantity of them in: great big jalapeno rings, and juicy tomatoes, delicious! At first glance the Star Seeds? Migas do not seem to have all that much cheese on them but that is only because Star Seeds does not simply melt the cheese on top, it actually (eegads) mixes the cheese in (what an inspired concept) so that every bite, not just the ones close to the top, contain cheesy goodness. Indeed you cannot lift a fork of Star Seeds Migas without having egg, cheese, tortilla, and veggie together. Furthermore something fantastic occurs when you finish a plate of Star Seeds Migas: you find yourself full, and not of beans or tortillas?but filled with Migas. Simply perfect.

Migas Score: 6.5 out of 7

I was hungry last night like I usually am and decided to try some place different. I went to this little restaurant on the side of I-35 called Star Seeds. When I first walked in I was greeted by a beautiful waitress named Molly.
The menu had lots of selection and I ordered the spanish burger. The food came out fast and seemed very fresh. Goat cheese was oozing from the burger like I don't even know. Molly our waitress was on the ball, like I said before she's a looker. When the bill came out I was amazed on how cheap the total came out to, considering the quality and freshness of my oozing goat cheese burger. I would recommend this 24 hour piece of heaven to anyone. I give Star Seeds two thumbs up!!!!

Pros: wait staff

Starseeds used to be an exciting place when it was a dive. It was a sort of adventure to see how bad the service was and how cheap the food would be. Lately, though, the prices have climbed and the service is only marginally better. It's no longer a dive, which means it's not really anything special.

A group of us ate here at 2a.m. on a Saturday. We were seated immediately, but it took us over an hour to receive our food. The breakfast taco was GIGANTIC, but it wasn't particularly great. The best part of the night was the Rockstar Queso - an absolute must!!

OK. For anyone wondering what Star Seeds is about, you have to take it's reputation with a grain of salt (as the extremely polarized views here would suggest). The staff is well-meaning, but generally short-handed. The place is so crowded that they probably don't have the space to afford a few extra sets of hands.
In a rush, you'll get drinks, food, and a generally all right meal from their best servers. When it's slow, you may even get a long conversation and entertaining insight.
From my experience, the people who work there are far less intimidating or rude than they might accidentally seem on a bad day. It's a personal experience, and if you frequent the place, you'll find that the staff will really open up to you. Treat them well and they will more than reward the favor. And if Jen or Lenee is there, treat yourself to a great dining experience with either. Not only are they fast, they're both pretty much as cool as it gets.
However, don't expect to walk in there and get six star, gourmet restaurant service when there's a wait list and one waiter running their butt off. Appreciate it for what it is and enjoy it or else you might as well just go somewhere bland and uninteresting instead.

We had just come back from a night out on 6th street and were in search of a place to eat. A friend suggested Star Seeds. That was a bad idea. I am not a complete a hole when it comes to dining out. I just like certain particulars to be in order. First off, I like cleanliness. I prefer to be at peace and know that my food won't contain hair, an insect found in Men in Black the movie (im not allowed to say it in this review..i am being censored for some reason), or any other thing/bacteria/creepy crawly that it is not supposed to. At Star seeds you get the direct impression that the sanitation levels are low. The bathroom is dirty. The waiters look kind of grungy and dirty. The dishes and cups they serve out of give a dirty vibe.

I know that they were trying to go for cool hip urbanite...that is a....kind of I dont care Im so trendy I dont have to follow society's rules....blah blah.

However, they missed the mark. I would rather get a smiling professional waiter and correctly prepared food in a clean kitchen/restaurant than eat again at this fake hippy cafe.

The food is bland and poor quality, the service is terrible. This place is not hip and cool, its filthy and falling apart. The roof leaks and smells, I ate there once and worried I might get sick. Dennys is open, and even though I dont recommend Denny's. at least its a tolerable environment.

I think they need to understand the difference between "hip" and just plain dirty. The atmosphere was ok and the music was good, but it seemed like they did go out of their way to be extra rude. They messed up my order and when i told the waitress, she was very in-my-face about it and it took her forever to bring my *cold* and puny portioned order. The servings were defintiely not generous, now i don't know if this is because i asked her to fix my order and incurred her wrath or if its because thats how much it should have actually been. I have to say my experience was complete when the waitress sprayed her flying snot at us when she sneezed and proceeded to wiped her nose with her arm. That's just nasty regardless of the attitude. Overall, they treated us like we were doing them a favor by being there, and needless to say i will NEVER return. I was so appalled at my experience that i signed up for this stupid citysearch site just so i could give them a bad review. Hey Star seeds cafe, maybe you should try to follow Kerby Lane's lead - you know, people that actually wash and want their customers to be there.

My boyfriend asked tonight if I'd like to go to Star Seeds, and I scoffed, because I have had so many underwhelming experiences there in the past. At his suggestion, I started reading online reviews, and I decided to give the restaurant another try. I was very pleasantly surprised. At 8:30 on a Saturday night, it was calm inside. The place looked cleaner than I remembered and it now has a more spacious feel inside. Our menus and drinks were prompt. The hummus appetizer showed up quickly - the pitas were warm and delicious, and the hummus was actually better than what I've had at several other places. Our sandwiches came exactly as we finished the hummus. Though I still don't know how to pronounce it (the waitress wasn't sure either), the Croque Madame was delicious. Ham, cheese, and gravy on toast, topped with an egg, are simple ingredients, but they were well-prepared. The french fries were more yummy than most that I've eaten. Only the philly cheese steak left me wanting. Most places usually have a more personalized, distinct flavor to their steak, and although this sandwich wasn't bad, it won't be especially memorable. The check came in a decent amount of time, and our waitress was extremely polite and friendly, even refilling our drinks after we had paid. Maybe I would have had a completely different experience if we had waited until 2 A.M. to go, and the place might have seemed smaller if the bar hadn't been empty. Overall, though, this was a really nice experience, and my once yearly visits will now likely be monthly.

this place will never go out of buisness because austin if full of phonys who are to cool and "reaxed" to care about about how awful the service. first off it took old boy up front like 10 min to clean off a booth for us. i guess at this place cleaning doesnt include wiping the water and pieces of food off of the table so we did that ourselves. during the 30 min wait for the food (( scrambled eggs, burger) yeah ,and i asked for blue cheese, of course no blue cheese, " uh,, unfortunately,,,, we,, uh,,, ran out of blue cheese... do you want me to take it back?" ,yaeh right and wait another 30 min, and im sure he made up that excuse on the spot)) while waiting we spotted the kid that we named "queso boy" because if you ordered chips and queso he was right on it. so we see queso boy wandering aimlessly, literally to cool to pick his feet up off the floor when he walks, occasionnaly handing out the queso. meanwhile i have been waiting a long time for a DP refill and queso boy hands out some queso next to us, looks at the table across from us that hasnt been cleaned since the people left 15 min ago, doesnt even see my empty glass on the edge of the table, and shuffles to the back to flip his hair and PLAY WITH A LIGHTER!!! so i go to the back and reach around him and fill my own soda. blah blah blah the eggs are cold,, the food is barely average,, we never get the check,,but here is the kicker, when i go to pay i tell green shirt dude up front what we had(bacon cheeseburger/migas/coke).....he is so incompetent that he only charges me $5. 5 dollars 41 cents tax...sweet..." i didnt charge you for the dr pepper man"

Pros: $5 dinner for two, mexican lady doing all of the work-somebody had work ethic

Cons: hipness put you off your feed, everything

.

First off - the place is like a new and improved Star Seeds. I hadn't been in years and just revisited. It still is a place with all the "charm" and hipness of yesteryear, but it has been cleaned up considerably in all ways.....cool new art on the walls...friendly and attentive waitstaff (you gotta see it to believe it)....a bunch of great microbrews and cheap but tasty house wines by the glass.....still awesome music and great prices...the menu has new items like shrimp cocktail with romesco sauce and basil oil!!!! WOW! and it's still 24 hours...I've been back everyday since.

Pros: 24 hour, great beers & wine, menu changing

.

I really like this dive. It's much better than IHOP/Dennys anytime... less pretentious or overpriced than Magnolia/Kerbey. The portions are huge... everything is just down to earth home cooking. I go late at night on week nights and some weekends... the service is adequet. The food comes out quickly and the waitresses have been really sweet. One time though one of our party guests spilled water and they just didnt pick it up... eventhough it was on the floor and a hazard considering how small that walk way is. We tried our best but we didn't have the supplies necessary.

Pros: good portions, 24hr, convenient to a lot of places

Cons: parking, sometimes service

.

The first time I went to Star Seeds it was chock-full of personal photos and grit. It had the feel of a dive. It had the smell. The food was cheap and the service was decent. They've cleaned the place up since then and the service seems to have taken a wash along with the character. The place still ranks higher than having to succumb to an IHOP or Denny's, but if you go there, it's a crapshoot if you get any decent service at all. And I'm not talkin about whiny boy 'my eggs aren't cooked right' or 'they took 18 minutes instead of 14' nonsense. On many occasions recently they have forgotton whole orders, taken over an hour to bring out food when there were very few people in there, and generally seemed like they could care less about what happens in the place. I'll spot em the 'not caring' attitude as that no doubt raises the cool points in this image driven town of ours, but at some point, it's nice to have your coffee refilled at least once in the hour and a half you're there without having to hunt someone down. So if you're gonna go... go stoned. That way you won't care either way.

Cons: service has much to be improved on.

I don't know what this other guys problem is or what he expected. Sounds to me like he's a 45 year yippie who was trying to be hip. They play great music, $1 Lonestar's all the time and the food is awesome. Who cares if the waitress looks like a zombie?

Im not sure what all the raves are about. Yea its such a dive its hip and trendy.. but that is about where the good stops. Service was poor at best. Zombie-like waitress looked right through our flails for service. No the food didnt take as long as some folks descriptions but it sure tasted like it. My ham and cheese omelet was more than dry and was accompanied by a mushy order of hash-browns (er.. make that hash-whites.. they were barely cooked). My breakfast mate had some rather bland chicken with a side order of chewy corn. I wont be back.. IHOP is open 24 hours too.

Yeah the seats are beating up and its a dive. The ambience is in your face & they kinda go out of there way to show how "cool" it is. The service is real, no fake smiles- just be cool and patience and they offer the same. It might be filled with people who read the cliffnotes to "On the Road" but the food is amazing and the price is incredibly cheap for the gigantic portion of food. I now live out of town but I always eat when go back to Austin. Its just too damn good and the atmoshpere is Austin contained to 10 tables, 2 servers, wall art and loud music. So if you are going to Austin you must eat StarSeeds- its great food (consistently) and the vibe of Austin is captured under 1 roof.

Cons: slow (its Austin)

I HAD THE ABSOLUTE WORST SERVICE EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE DURING THE WEEKEND OF A.C.L. WE WENT AT 2 IN THE MORNING, IT TOOK 20 MINUTES TO BE GREETED, 20 MINUTES FOR DRINKS AND AFTER AN HOUR AND HALF.......NO FOOD EITHER. OUR WAITER FORGOT TO PUT IN THE ORDER. A NORMAL RESTAURANT WOULD HAVE GOTTEN A MANAGER AND SET THE FOOD OUT QUICKER.......BUT NO. NO MANAGER AND NO FOOD. WE LEFT AFTER TWO HOURS OF WAITING, ONE DRINK REFIL AND HUNGRY. WOULD NEVER GO THERE AGAIN. OH AND IF YOU CALL TO COMLAIN THEUY TELL YOU THEY ARE REALLY BUSY AND TO CALL BACK AFTER AUSTIN CITY LIMITS IS OVER.

WE WENT AT 2 IN THE MORNING, IT TOOK 20 MINUTES TO BE GREETED, 20 MINUTES FOR DRINKS AND AFTER AN HOUR AND HALF.......NO FOOD EITHER. OUR WAITER FORGOT TO PUT IN THE ORDER. A NORMAL RESTAURANT WOULD HAVE GOTTEN A MANAGER AND SET THE FOOD OUT QUICKER.......BUT NO. NO MANAGER AND NO FOOD. WE LEFT AFTER TWO HOURS OF WAITING, ONE DRINK REFIL AND HUNGRY. WOULD NEVER GO THERE AGAIN. OH AND IF YOU CALL TO COMLAIN THEUY TELL YOU THEY ARE REALLY BUSY AND TO CALL BACK AFTER AUSTIN CITY LIMITS IS OVER.

Cons: WORST SERVICE, HORRIBLE SERVICE, RUDE PEOPLE

If you're craving biscuits n gravy, or sausage and eggs, or breakfast tacos, this place has everything breakfast. They serve breakfast all day, and their platters are huge! I had the turkey, ham & swiss omelette with hash browns and home fries, and let me tell you, I ate half and took half home for another meal. There's a wait on weekends, but it's faster if you want to sit at the bar or on the patio. My bf and I sat on the patio, where it was nice and quiet (compared to the rest of the cafe). They've got better service than Kerby Lane, that's for sure... I'd recommend this place if you're craving breakfast at any time of day

Pros: open 24 hours, inexpensive, nice waiters

Its a good place at 3am when you want to sop up the beer in your system. Try the cheese fries and breakfast tacos. Problem though - it has changed over the years. You can not smoke in there anymore. Some may like that but smoking used to be part of the "charm."
And yes, the service does take a lopng time even when the place is not busy. So in the end, decent food at a decent price while waiting a decent amount of time waiting for it to get to you.
But if you're drunk at 3am and hungry (and don't smoke), the wait flies by...

Cons: , no smoking, cramped

Try the breakfast tacos, for the money they are the best in Austin and a great time to visit Star Seeds Cafe is late after a night on the town. But don't hold yourself to that anytime is a great time to eat here. It's good, it's affordable, and you get lots of food....GO EAT AT STARS!!

Star Seeds is absolute greatness! The food is wonderful and the waitstaff fits the place perfectly; they complete the dining experience. I've never waited too long for anything and, honestly, the breakfast tacos are worth waiting any amount of time for. We go there atleast twice a weekend and it just gets better and better. Great food and even better prices. Don't miss this spot!

Pros: great food, great prices, great experience

.

the food is good but can not figure out why a place which does such obviously good business can not manage to have more than 2 servers for the entire place. it takes anywhere from 2-20 minutes to get a drink or menu, if you are lucky enough to get a seat even when there are empty booths for 5-10 minutes. the frustration with the service and servers definately takes away from the food.

I had been going to this place for 3 years. The pancakes, and breakfast plates are consistently good. The downside is and always has been that some of the waitstaff goes out of there way to be rude and seem proud of it. I'm going to IHOP or Denny's. Not worth it!

I have lived in Austin for 9 years and never knew Star Seed existed (its hidden on the access road where 1-35 splits into the upper/lower deck) until I was taken there by Todd Lewis of the Toadies. He loved the migas there but I stuck with the ham and cheese omelette (moist and grand). For only a little money (7 dollars a person?) we were given plates piled high with food. The service was not very good though and refills were hards to come by. We thought we had been forgotten sitting outside. Otherwise, it was a good experience.

Pros: inexpensive, good food, plenty of parking

OK, I have been there so many times, and I absolutely LOVE the cheese fries. YUMMMMMY!!!!! But, the service leaves a little to be desired, but then again, so does the service at most places in Austin, so I guess I can't complain too much. I will definitely go back. Plus, I love the art on the walls. I think it's awesome.

overall, the food is not good. I was surprised to see that it had such a high rating. The best thing you could say about this place is their happy hour. Other than that, don't go there unless you want cheap food and don't want to go to the other 24 hour places around town.

"Be nice or leave." The sign says it all. Stars has great food and good music to go along with it. Sure, the waiters aren't always cheery but at least they're somewhat real. It actually makes the dining experience better. Reciprocity is the issue. If you don't act like a jerk, then they won't treat you like one. Even if they do, the breakfast tacos and chocolate chip pancakes are worth it.

Pros: Breakfast Tacos, Loud Music, Bathroom Graffiti

This was the worst dining experience ever. Their tasteless food was absolutely horrible and we had to keep sending our orders back for corrections. Service was aweful, slow, and unfriendly and this place had the treble turned all the way up on their blaring music. Not only could the waitress not hear us as we ordered, but I had to read my friend's lips as I made myself some earplugs out of napkins. To end it all, they overcharged us on the bill. Stay far, far away.....or suffer the consequences.

This is a dive in every sense of the word, but has breakfast the way ot should be. The migas rock and the nasty servers and tattered seats add to the charm, reminding diners, you don't eat the atmosphere.

Star Seeds is a classic in Austin. I can't remember how many good CDs -- from Miles Davis to the Beastie Boys -- I heard while eating a solid breakfast of eggs, hash browns, bacon and toast. The large counter space is perfect for those 'table for one' diners. My only complaint is that kitchen staff seems to have a huge turnover. So there are times, you can tell a new cook is training. And the wait can be long on the weekends. But neither are a good enough reason not to make this a must-visit for folks in Austin.

The breakfast tacos at 3am are the best hang-over prevention food to be found on I-35. This 24-hour greasy spoon is the best way to round out a night of heavy drinking. The home fries rock!

Been going to stars for almost 3 years now. Get the five filling breakfast taco, but ask the cook to go easy on the butter! They slather it in that stuff. Also, try the hummus app!

It's a hole in the wall, true, but this greasy spoon has some great home-style food, even if the cooks strike fear in your heart.

Okay, the servers might have a little attitude, but, they'll warm up to you once they've seen you a few times. Don't ask them to turn down the music; they won't. The portions are quite large and the prices are perfect if you're on a college student's budget.
