They did not disappoint. we were staying a few blocks away and wanted to take a walk anyway. ended up going both days for coffee even though we had a pot in the room. The pastries looked great but we didn't have them. The staff did a great job were very friendly. they... More

We stumbled on Medici on our way to another breakfast restaurant. There was a good crowd inside so we decided to jump inside. The place itself is nice and filled with computer using patrons. The coffee is nice but their snacks and breakfast (from TacoDeli) is very average - there isn't even enough cream cheese for a "bagel with cream... More

Good coffee really, but the service is not as good as the coffee. It was the 3rd time I went there, usually there's a cashier and a barista, this time the cashier wasn't there, so I turned to the barista and asked: excuse me, I would like a latte with caramel. He was washing a mug, on hearing me, he... More

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

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.

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.
