Kerbey Lane/Jefferson Square
38th Street from Lamar to MoPac, Austin
Running along the length of 38th Street,
veering off to Kerbey Lane and culminating
in Jefferson Square, this area offers quaint
shops that invite exploration. Jefferson
Square is the home to Anderson & Co.
Coffee, where the smell of freshly roasted
coffee beans lingers in the air. Other small
businesses are just as eclectic-from a store
that sells dolls and doll accessories to a clock
shop, a lamp shop, and a shop that sells only
architectural antiques. The list goes on and
on, and is best investigated during an afternoon with time to dawdle. Finish up with
a good meal at Kerbey Lane Café-or begin
your day there-it’s open 24 hours.
