This breakfast classic has a superstar ingredient: an over easy egg from Happy Chick Farms.

Located in the old Hillside Drugstore building, Hillside Farmacy is a beautifully restored restaurant preserving its original pharmacy cabinetry. The décor was completely designed by the owners and display whimsical items including bottles of antique cough syrup, stomach remedies, and nerve tonic prescribed to patients once upon a time. In addition to its historic significance, this hotspot is best known for serving farm to table cuisine done well.



The dish featured is the classic fried egg sandwich. Executive chef, Sonia Coté builds this delectable tower with the city’s finest ingredients. First, let’s start with the brioche bread from local bakery Easy Tiger. Next, layer it with bacon, panko, slices of fresh avocado, house-made aioli, crunchy sunflower sprouts, fried green tomatoes, topped with an over easy egg from Happy Chick Farms locally produced by our neighboring harvesters in Bastrop.

Cocktails are handcrafted with our own Tito’s Handmade Vodka, cheese delivered from Antonelli’s, and the desserts are fashioned with Lick Ice Creams and Wicked Bee Honey. The farm to table movement is a growing trend in Austin. Although purchasing from local and organic establishments may cost a little more, sustainable restaurants like Hillside Farmacy enjoy an overwhelming amount of support from the environmentally conscious Austinites. Austin prides itself in its loyal culture of supporting local businesses.
