    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
