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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
