Best gelato and coffee in Austin

Best gelato and coffee in Austin. Teo is my go-to spot. The traditional cappuccino is a must for any coffee lover. People come for the gelato but the coffee is equally excellent.

Amazing gelato in the heart of downtown. When we have out of town guests I always come here to pick up a tub of their Bourbon vanilla and sea salt caramel gelato for dessert. They also have pretty good coffee and breakfast treats/paninis during the weekdays. Can't wait to come back!

Came back here after a long dry spell more because of the distance and also other really good yummies popping up everywhere in Austin. Group of us ladies rushed in for some dessert in a very cold Sunday night. This place was empty but based on yelp, it wasn't closing until 10pm. So we ordered our treats. I loved my... More

Gelato snob approves. Authentic Italian fresh gelato with creative flavors. Tested chocolate which was creamy and pudding like. Great. Coconut was less flavorful.

Gelato is outstanding and there is usually a wide range of choices. Prices have held steady but the cups have gotten smaller. Still very tasty.

The gelato was the best I have had. Teo has racked up a bunch of awards for a reason. And the coffee was very good, too!

My family loves Teo, we often make this our special dessert stop on our way home from downtown Austin. I'm not a coffee drinker, but many of my friends rave about the cappuccino. But when my family goes there, we're all about the gelato. I love all their nut flavors, especially the hazelnut. I'm also a big fan of everything... More

Great selection of flavors, relaxing place to escape the heat in the summer time. Good coffee drinks and really nice staff.

I've been stopping by Teo for a latte since they opened. It's not on my beaten path, so I'm usually going out of my way to stop there. Hands down, the best latte in town. I'm old-school, so the thought of paying more than 50 cents for a cup of coffee makes me flinch. I cheerfully pay the price here,... More

This place has a great vibe. I'm sitting out on their huge patio watching a fire blaze in their outdoor fireplace. No, it's not an invitation for vagabonds to roast marshmallows - It's a delightfully cozy cafe. Great italian gelato - tasty coffee, friendly staff, good music - and free easy to access internet. I can't imagine what more a... More
