    Mochas are made with Ghirardelli chocolate. Give the 64oz of coldbrew a whirl, "work your way up to the Toddy" say the patrons. Pastries are great. Friendliest staff I've ever encountered.

    Cheap, delicious coffee, WiFi, plenty of plugs for laptops and a great environment for studying and editing. The thing that sets it apart from shops in South Austin is that it's 24 hours.

    Cool spot, great service and the coffee is outstanding. My caffeine-addicted father drank coffee at every high-rated place he could for a week in ATX and liked this one the most by a long shot.

    Awesome staff and drinks. Plus, there's three different rooms plus a big outside area so you'll probably be able to find your ideal coffee shop atmosphere for studying or hanging with friends.

    I love this place. Worth the drive for the service, coffee and ample seating. Hidden gem only 15 min drive campus. Great beer selection, and great milk alternatives for the vegans :)

    Less than $2 for a cup of coffee AND a free refill! Plus WiFi, and it's open 24 hours!!! This place was made for late night studying, don't let the neighborhood it's in stop you from checking it out!

    Wonderful place to study, with the exception of their sometimes weak wifi. Lots of room, both indoors and out. The coffee and food options have all been really good as well!

    Great study spot. Always a free table every time I've come. If you come at night, bring headphones or earplugs. Live music in teh lounge tho. Best kept 24 he secret.

    Being from Seattle, I'm always looking for the chill local community coffee shop. This is the best cafe in Austin with the ambience I've been searching for!

    Great place for good coffee. They have a nice selection of vegan organic "milks" too. I do the hemp milk latte or oat milk chai latte, so good.

    Was more cool as a really small neighborhood cafe, but the coffee has always been good. Theres generally no where to sit in the back to smoke from 9 - 12:30. It's crazy here when its a full moon.

    Try a flavored cold brew and the bacon/egg/cheese croissant--REAL eggs and thick slices of bacon, cooked fresh to order. So amazing.

    One of the few places to get an Almond Milk Latte. Great indie coffee shop worth trying out. They also have hemp milk.

    This Place Is Awesome and It's Big, So You Always Get A Seat and Some Elbow Room. The Coffee Is Great And It's Open 24 Hours...

    This business is very Eco conscious. They have a good size recycling program going on as well as supporting other local businesses throughout the products they sell. If you buy green this biz is good.

    Great place to study or write. Comfortable, quiet, affordable. The namesake Strange Brew -- cream, raw sugar, and espresso steamed together -- is delicious!

    I've come here several times @ 6am & the small iced toddy is $3. Today I come @ 10:30am & that same iced toddy is $4.50. Do the prices change by the hour here?

    Topo Chico is my beverage of choice. Sometimes you can get the regular flavored one with a slice of lime (not the lime flavored Topo)... mmmmhmmm..

    24 hour coffee shops are hard to come by in this town -- if it's during finals, it's worth the drive down south to this treasure.

    bought an Americano for $2.50 'n wanted coffee refill. well, I didn't buy coffee so I have to buy a new coffee at $2.25 and then I can get a refill. Make sense? Nope, not to me either. stupid!

    In a city like Austin I expect a barista to be an artisan. These guys have a refurbed starbucks verismo 801, full autoespresso machine. The service was lackluster. And the bev was disappointing.

    Strange Brew is going 24hrs around 9/11--and our new five flavors of Torchy's inspired Panini's should be solidly on the menu by then too.

    This place isn't kidding when they tell you your internet session is only for 4hrs. You need to make another purchase if you want another 4hrs on the Internet.
