    Beautiful coffee shop on the east side. The coffee is great and the breakfast tacos are 👌👌. They also serve alcohol. It's a must-visit if you're in the area.

    $2 PBR tallboys all the time (and 12oz Lone Stars). Great coffee. Sandwiches aren't bad. Nice patio, great place to bring your dog, hang out, and/or get some work done. Free WiFi. Lots of outlets.

    Solid breakfast tacos. On the pricier side but the quantity is great and everything tastes fresh. You pay for the atmosphere - located in a renovated house on the east side with a great outdoor space.

    Cenote is a quiet coffee shop in East Austin that also offers beer. What more do you want? Park on the side street and enjoy a chai latte that's actually not too hot to drink.

    GREAT gluten free bread for stellar sandwiches, which were huge! Got some good pour over. Cute setting, great patio, could be a tad less grunge inside. Over all good experience.

    The Best Guacamole. Also, the taco plate comes with two tacos, which can be mixed and matched. Good arugula salad is the side.

    Amazing breakfast tacos, a wide selection of unique teas and a nice and cozy atmosphere inside. The patio area has lots of seating as well if you want some fresh air

    Great space to meet a friend or to get some work done - cozy yet spacious. Excellent coffee (cuvée, handsome), beer (on draft especially) and wine list too.

    Alton of Cenote was fantastic helping us out this morning with a casual baby shower on the front lawn. He kept the mimosas and pitchers of cold water coming. Thanks for the great service!

    This is a good coffee shop to meet up with friends. They also serve great food which is a plus. The outdoor area is perfect when it isn't too hot.

    Happy hour from 4-7p weekdays is incredible. Try the ribs or corn on the cob for a hefty, cheap, delicious snack.

    The Cenote/Juju Juice cohabitation is like your best friend dating somebody who ends up being just as cool. And you spend a lot of time at their place. But they like it. Friendship.

    Amazing egg scramble and iced almond latte in a quirky, East Austin setting. Now, if only I'd had room for a breakfast taco!

    When ya add a place that's not in English... check the SPELLING! Cenote does NOT have an accent on the E. It's a Spanish word not French. =P

    Don't get caught without cash! $5 minimum if you're using a credit card. And they don't just tack on a fee, which would be fine with me, they literally make you buy at least $5 worth.

    Get the BLAT - nothing like avocado to liven up an old staple. Ridiculous good.
