Yummie Latte

This small, small coffee shop serves great coffee. My favorite is their Lattes, which they serve in a ceramic cup and artfully create a heart in the foam. Nice touch! They also offer a few baked goods and microwaved tacos.

I always search out small independent coffee shops as I travel. This has some of the best coffee ever. I had a latte. The hours posted on the TripAdvisor app are wrong, as they are open early. Google says hours are 6:30am to 10pm. It is a small shop with limited parking.

Mid-morning was actually mid-day since I was up by (04:00) and had had little to eat or drink before stopping at this fine eatery. Not that I sleep that well anyway, but our (my better half + me) were up early to board the first Southwest flight to AUS. So, after meeting daughter #1 & her significant other, they gave... More

Very good coffee, plenty of TacoDeli taco choices, and even baked goods and beer for the carb-needy. Free WiFi and a good crowd of bright folks (staff and customers) make this a fine place for buzzing-up and getting some work done.

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
