    Coffee shops in Austin are CROWDED. But I usually find Monkey's Nest has a quiet, relaxing atmosphere, great for getting work done. The baristas have always been super helpful as well.

    Gets a little too crowded but that is because this place is so good. The Spicy Monkey Mocha is ridiculous and the Green friend smoothie is a must. They are gluten free friendly which is major for me.

    Best coffee shop north of downtown, hands down. Friendly staff, great food and snack options, even for healthy items and gluten free! Biscotti is the BOMB. Great place for working as well.

    Great little spot. Bring a sweater(they keep it chilly) and order the spicy monkey mocha-you wont be sorry. If you are in the mood for a smoothie, the green friend is delish!

    Very respectable coffee here, and a nice menu for sustenance during prolonged laptop visits. Definitely easy to find ways to finance my stay!

    I can no longer recommend this place for an in-house experience. Coffee to go is great but the wifi never works so planned visits are always cut short so I can go someplace else

    Coffee is fantastic, and service is friendly. Don't go there if you're in a hurry, though, good things take time.

    Typically crowded though they have enough seating to accommodate. Sign up for their mailing list to find out about live music. Underrated breakfast tacos.

    One of the only coffee shops around that charges the same price for an iced coffee and a regular coffee. It feels like a rip off at other coffee shops to pay more for iced coffee than regular coffee.
