    Nestled between the East side and downtown neighborhoods, this coffeehouse is a great place to catch up with friends or get some work done. It's a nice place to stop en route to the Hope Farmer's Mark Read more

    Situated in the 501 Studios, Progress Coffee serves up organic, fair-trade coffee and foods. You’ll spot many of East Austin’s creatives hacking away on laptops and sipping a cup of joe.

    Must try a DD! Very relaxing. Don't know what that is? Go in their bathroom right after someone else, drop your drawers, & sit down. Take your time, now! You will experience...the Dump in the Dark.

    Good place to get your head on right before starting your class at Dub Academy!! If your not a student stop by and check us out, we are right down the sidewalk!

    Just be aware that for every hip creative professional, or hip bum in here, there's two real estate developers doing a deal to change the neighborhood. Hear them?

    Good coffee and reasonable power, but the wifi is unreliable. If you need a persistent connection, look elsewhere or bring your own.

    Great coffee, and great simple breakfasts. Also conveniently located right next to I-35 for the commuters like myself.

    Jalapeño breakfast biscuit (made in-house daily) with avocado and an Americano will start off your morning right.

    2.7 My favorite of the not quite right milk/coffee v cup size ratio. Willing to work worth them.

    If the barista likes you, he might offer you a splash of Mexican vanilla in your iced coffee. SAY YES!

    Just a short walk away from the ACC. The coffee is fair trade, organic and custom roasted by hand in small batches. Enjoy a few minutes of fresh air on your way to a proper caffeine fix. Read more

    Cappuccino is amazing. Get a moodini or a caprese, sit outside and enjoy the view.

    Try the jalapeño & cheddar biscuit. It comes w/ egg+cheese, but you have to spring for the bacon. It's a must!

    Great coffee. Amazing biscuits. Go for the Jalapeño Cheddar. If you don't you'll really miss out.

    Tons of parking by the train tracks during the day, but if you bike, you'll get more karma points.

    They make a strong cup of Joe as well as a mean egg and cheese biscuit sandwich.

    Best cold-brewed coffee and white-chocolate-chip-macadamia cookies on the planet. A well-designed haven of east-side culture and design.

    Soy milk is $0.50 extra. They used to have vegan snacks, but no more. Grumpy wait staff. Did they get new management since a year ago? Either way, I won't be back.
