Whenever I visit a new city, my first priority is to find out where the best coffee shop is. I love coffee, I love mornings, and I love coffee shops. Austin has a great variety of coffeeshops all over the city, and I am here showing you some of my favorites!
Apanas Coffee and Beer - This is a great coffee shop to get work done and enjoy a breakfast taco or fresh juice. I love how spacious it is and it is usually filled with other folks who work from home which makes the vibe perfect for me during the work week. Plus, after the work day ends they start serving beer!
11501 Rock Rose, Ste. 118 Austin, TX 78758
Elizabeth Street Cafe - While not typically considered a coffee shop because they are known for their pho and banh mi, I love this place because they have breakfast pastries (including beignets!) and a wide array of coffee drinks made with Stumptown Coffee. The airiness and bright interior and friendly waitstaff make it a cozy place to enjoy your morning coffee.
1501 S 1st St, Austin, TX 78704
Summer Moon - The coffee is so good here. They serve coffee made from wood-fired beans and have their own signature moon milk! I usually order the half moon latte because I don't like my coffee too sweet, but if you really want a treat order the Wintermoon or Iced Mocha Moon. They also have delicious pastries (some GF) and even serve Tacodeli breakfast tacos until they run out!
11005 Burnet Rd, Austin, TX 78758 (and more locations)
The Factory Cafe - There are so many great things about this place from the interior to the food to the coffee. I especially love their matcha latte and fried chicken and waffle sandwich. The interior has a lot of natural light and there are a lot of seating options--including indoor swing seats! Just a heads up there is no wifi here and do not bring your laptop; they are not allowed and will tell you so!
7718 Burnet Rd, Austin, TX 78757
Brentwood Social House - I just recently discovered this spot but am so in love with everything about it! It's an old house renovated into a coffee shop and is large and spacious with plenty of seating. One of the owners is originally from England and makes authentic scones. It's very charming and even has outdoor seating.
