If you want an authentic espresso or cappuccino with thick brown cream, come here. Parking is very tricky but side streets offer alternatives. Just allow enough time. New south Austin location is easier to get in and out. Nice atmosphere but small in side.

Texas has some nice coffee houses. This place was very pleasant, and the staff was helpful, but the coffee wasn't entirely my cup of tea. I guess it comes down to preference. I'd recommend that any itinerant caffeine-hounds passing through Austin go check it out. Just be aware that the coffee growls back.

I found wandered in one afternoon because I heard tales of excellent coffee and mocha. But, because it was cold outside, I chose hot cocoa, and what a treat it was! A large bowl of steaming hot milk and rich chocolate potion mixed together to form a beautiful design. It tasted every bit as good as it looked, and I... More

Nice location with a great atmosphere. The staff are friendly and fast. My wife had an ice decaf mocha which was tasty. But I had the single origin brew, Ethiopian, and it was pleasantly different. I highly recommend it.

Its a nice layout, plenty of tables, indoor and outside seating and a large upstairs with exposed brick and books to look at, but my Earl Grey tea, properly steeped for 3 minutes was just not very strong at all honestly, putting the bag back in for a couple more minutes didn't help. My daughter had their Chai and she... More

(this is a review for the congress ave location) My husband and I just happened to find this cafe by walking around downtown. We were about to go for a five mile loop around Town Lake, but needed some sustenance beforehand. We both ordered cappuccinos, his a double shot and mine a decaf. OMG, they were so good, with really... More
