Any time of day you can stop by any coffee shop and get decent coffee. Support non-corporate coffee as well as a shop that supports the arts! They host comedy, live music, more! Kick butt kicks butt!

Went there twice for lattes and Americanos. We live in the Pacific Northwest where coffee is a big deal, so it was nice to find this spot while on vacation in Texas.Both times the drinks were tasty and well made. Conveniently located off I-35.

I went to this place to see some live music. I didn't know what to expect. I got there far too early, only to find some kind of stand up comedy show happening inside. I had to sit that out before the live music happened....More

You are going to be in the mood for one or the other, coffee and tea or a mixed drink. What can make it better? Martial art decor and live local music. They also have smoothies. Right off the highway.

"With a name like Kick Butt, you'd think the atmosphere in this coffeehouse would lean toward assertive—-or at least jittery. 'Kick back' is far more descriptive. Unpretentious and un-corporate, Kick Butt Coffee Music & Booze is the creation of Austin's renowned Tai Chi and Kung Fu master, Thomas Gohring. Here you're just as likely to bump into artists, musicians and poets as you are entrepreneurs, office workers and bean counters. The art of latte-making has been mastered. Deliciously original “samiches” named for legends like Jackie Chan are featured on the menu. And don't resist treating yourself to the “Ying Yang” white and black chocolate cake. Kick Butt Coffee Music & Booze has earned its well-deserved black belt in mouth-watering fare and entertaining yet relaxed ambience. The only thing you'll have to fight here is the impulse to sip, eat and linger all day and night." - Magic 95 FM
