Description: "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

I don't know that I get this concept, but I will say I have a couple of friends that like Kick Butt.

Kick Butt Coffee (two locations - I went to the one in the triangle) has amazing coffee, including lots of options; I often go there for lunch to get a sandwich (samich) including great drink and chips. And their desserts - you HAE to save room for one since they are fantastic!

This coffee shop is great! It's almost a year old--opened February 2008, but I just discovered it December 2008. The staff is always friendly. I love the mocha coffee with chocolate liquor (they have a full bar). I also love the Kick'n Chick'n sandwhich--the coffee shops carries sandwiches and breakfast tacos. Laid back atmosphere with plenty of seating available.
