    What an excellent cup of fresh pour-over coffee. This is not a frilly girly sugary coffee drink place. They are purists who specialize in real coffee, espresso, cappuccino, etc. very, very good.

    Went here more than daily on my last Austin visit for their truly excellent espresso) with several choices of beans). The unique coffee julep is worth a try. They have breakfast tacos if you're early.

    An Austin original, Houndstooth is a coffee aficionados paradise, dolling out a variety of fine espresso, pour over, house brew, expertly frothed cappuccinos, and a tasty variety of pastries. 5/5

    The Japanese iced coffee and blueberry iced tea are both solid options for your summer caffeine fix.

    Excellent coffee, has a few pastries and treats you can buy to go with. Great space for working. The 5GHz wifi doesn't reach the outdoor patio unfortunately.

    Everything everything everything! Get any of the beans on the clever, make sure you have 5 mins to spare-worth it! Excellent staff as well. Top notch courtesy and coffee knowledge.

    Awesome coffee shop in downtown Austin. Excellent selection of coffee (hot and iced). They do coffee tastings twice a week. Grab a seat by the window and linger all afternoon.

    Mod rustic in tone, atmosphere is both open and welcoming, however they get failing grades on lack of plugs. Staff is knowledgable and awesome as you would come to expect. Good place for a meetings.

    This coffee shop comes well supplied with addictive Cuvée and Tweed coffee beans as well as baristas that pour out the tastiest and most gorgeous rosettas in the city.

    Ask for their special brew. The barista really knows his beans. Tell him what you like and he'll tell you which coffee.

    These guys know what they are doing. If you are looking for a good fresh cup, this is the place to go. Nice single origin pour overs available and good beans

    A multi-method and multi-roaster, which means that alongside regular roasters (like Cuvee, Intelligentsia, etc.) they bring in guest coffees all the time.

    As far as I could tell, this is the only place in Austin that takes coffee seriously - possibly nobody wants to try to compete, because they do it very well indeed. Pour-overs are the thing here.

    Just tried the seasonal special of cocktails coffee! Wonderful flavor, maintaining rich full expreso flavors!

    Serves up counter culture coffee. You'll find plenty of computer engineers here. They also have an extensive tea list and we opted for an earl grey tea latte instead.

    Houndstooth installed a pecan-slab experimental coffee bar where they'll be doing single-origin siphon brewing! Read more

    This ain't no kiosk no mo'! Come get a shot of single origin espresso while ogling their as-of-yet not in use siphons. Coffee culture is alive and well in Austin!

    Cortado w/San Sebastian espresso is wonderful for someone who prefers a lighter, more floral coffee, but w/all the caffeine punch

    Nice coffee shop, good coffee. It's on a bit of a bitter side, I prefer patika (across the street), but it's still very good

    Travelers take note: this is one of very few places in Austin you can walk into and ask for a flat white without anybody flinching.

    Bustling and lively (i.e. loud). drip coffee was satisfactory. Decent amount of single seating if you're looking to do some work. Wifi password on request from barista it seems.

    I would be pretty disappointed with the flavour of this espresso in NYC or Australia, so it pains me to say that this is the best flat white in Austin.

    What to Order: The coffee julep: espresso, vanilla, sparkling water, and fresh mint.
  • Melon L.

    The julep is still a shot of espresso, and is appropriately sized as such. (Not that anyone forgot that when they ordered or anything...)
