    Delicious espresso drinks. Great atmosphere and plenty of power outlets. Secured wifi is a big plus. Definitely check it out if you need a place to work.

    CM slings Cuvee coffee roasted on three La Marzocco FB 80s (Italian for "Fancy Makers of Delicious Coffee"), and they pride themselves on always having a wide selection of direct-trade beans. Read more

    My favorite cafe downtown. Ample plugs, choices between comfort or work-style seating, open floor plan and giant windows if you're in the mood to people watch. Get a Cortado (it's not on the menu)!

    The best coffee in Austin. Don't get repelled by their hipsta look (I mean, it's Austin right?) - they definitely know what they do with coffee.

    Great barista! Love the Japanese green tea. Best latte art. Love the wall deco. Nice bathrooms. Careful with the bus tubs though.

    This place is seriously serious about their coffee. Atmosphere is trendy, minimalist, but (true to Austin spirit) laid-back. Mezzanine seating is the best.

    An Austin classic that’s good for working, but not too quiet for a conversation. The americano is pretty much the gold standard. Ice teas are a nice change of pace.

    It was very nice and urban. If you're into the non traditional coffee shop then you will love the place. The chai was alright, typical. The Cappuccino was better than Starbucks but not amazing.

    Love the French Press coffee. Now I determined to buy to make it at home everyday. My friend suggested www.infinitebasics.com and I bought one and loving it.

    Had a mocha and it was the perfect blend, not overly sweet like so many other mochas. Great cups and art too!

    One of the very few coffee shops to pour with a bottomless portafilter. Their ingenious way to convert from spouts? Sawed them off and saved $.

    French press is done in advance in small batches so you don't have to wait and still get the fresh taste.

    Summer pro-tip: Order a Cafe Freddo. Off-menu, charged with espresso, and deliciously refreshing.

    Place is cool and comfy, coffee is excellent and wifi is fast. Their pastries although passable, leave a lot to be desired though.

    The breakfast tacos by Tacodeli are surprisingly tasty - Try the Migas... and the coffee is of course excellent!

    Real coffee is hard to find in the USA. I'm a complete coffee snob and I love the coffee at this place.

    They only have medium roasts of single origins and a house blend. I'm a dark roast gal so I got the Americano and am pleased.

    The best latté in Austin, and, maybe, the world. Opens at 6 AM...an hour earlier than the 5 closest shops.

    The chai is decent, but a little bland. If you like it spicy, I recommend against this one. (And I'm a lightweight, when it comes to spice in my chai)

    They serve Taco Deli - had a papas, egg & cheese. The everything bagel was right amount of chewy and crunchy.

    The Ninja is zingy and certainly something to try out. Tip if you're allergic to cayenne pepper this is not for you.

    Decent spot for a coffee or a beer, plenty of good seating. Coffee was a little lacking in taste but made with care.

    A very chic coffee shop that stops just short of being too chic
