    Halcyon is a perfect stop for an afternoon coffee or late-night drinks with friends. The vibes, staff and patrons are friendly - a refreshing change of pace from those other manic downtown ATX venues.

    Tableside s’mores and espresso cocktails are two things that make this hoppin’ corner joint so special. A coffehouse by day, bar by night, Halcyon has a fine selection of cigars and cigarettes, too.

    If you're a fan of crepes, then you absolutely must try the Crepe Nutella a la Mode! The great thing about Halcyon is that they serve crepes and the rest of their sweet breakfast options until 2 a.m!

    Ideal for socializing. The coffee is excellent (I favor the skim cappucino) and the food is equally delicious. Live music and alcoholic coffee drinks makes it a great evening hang out. NO STUDYING.

    Great place. Grab a coffee cocktail, a comfy seat, and some s'mores. Solid cocktail options, good java. So Austin.

    Fantastic place in the heart of downtown Austin. Perfect place with moody music and a great ambiance in the evening.

    Calm and cozy atmosphere to relax and hangout with a close friend or two. It is a bar, but for those that don't drink, they also have cheap smoothies and caffeine drinks as well.

    Get some late night s’mores! Very cheap and an easy way to have a seat and people watch.

    Enjoy coffee, paninis, and even a Nutella crepe at this well-known downtown spot. The ever-changing wall art is consistently inspiring, and they provide a cozy, hip place to chill whether day or night Read more

    At night, get s'mores! & come early if you want to get a couch seat. It fills up. In the morning, get a breakfast panini! So good.

    Good for when you want decent coffee-- not a fancy drink. Halcyon gets the job done while also offering a small menu of snacks and other drinks.

    It's really nice when they give you animal crackers to go with your cappuccino. But then sometimes they don't, which is morning-ruiningly disappointing.

    A dog-friendly patio is available, but you can only have the s'mores (their signature dessert) inside. So if you plan to enjoy the s'mores, leave fido at home. Learned this the hard way...

    Don't plan on getting your coffee in an expedient manner, baristas more concerned on catching up on the latest gossip

    Coffee or alcohol... More cafe style than the one in San Antonio, but just as spunky

    Best place to go on a date! Cute, dark and cozy, you can roast s'mores at your own table or sip on a yummy French hot chocolate (and yes, there's liquor in it!)

    Try the Nutella crepes to get your Nutella fix without the temptation of eating an entire container with a spoon. The s'mores are a special fiery treat here too!

    The lavender cider wasn't too strong, and tasted more fruity than herbal. The smores app was a fun addition!

    The prissy busboy with the short black hair is always in a hoity-toity mood. He's consistently been a dick to customers every time I've been here. Don't tip him if he takes your order.

    Best iced-toddy coffee in the city. The hummus is a wee bit overpriced but still delicious.
