    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!

    Always great ambiance, love it during the day it is chill enough to work and/or hang out grab coffee or wine. At night amazing drinks, sometimes music, good all around to start a night

    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.

    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

    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.

    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!)

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Great place to chill with a laptop, a coffee, a friend, a beer, or all of the above. Couches, tables, patio. THE place in Austin to work or chat.

    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

    Best place to chill near SxSW, but not too near to it. Open early, open late, good source of non-alcoholics.

    Take a break from the cooped-up Convention Center and grab a spot on this sunny, south-facing patio! Choose your vice: caffeine or alcohol.

    Great spot for delish weekend brunch with bottomless mimosas, people watching & roasting smores tableside.

    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.

    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!

    You might be discouraged to order the S'mores by being told there is an hour wait. Order them anyways and they should be at your table in 10 or 15 minutes.

    The espresso milkshake may appear in your dreams. Frequently. It's that good. Be warned.

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

    Smores are fun to make, but overrated in taste. Get the carrot cake instead! Delish.
