By Sarah Shea

Quack’s 43rd Street Bakery @quacksbakery

Quacks 43rd Street Bakery is a unique Austin staple. They offer a variety of baked goods including kolaches, croissants, pies, cakes, muffins, scones, danishes, cookies, cupcakes, and more. It’s almost impossible to go in for coffee and leave without one of their many mouthwatering treats.

Thunderbird Coffee @thunderbirdaustin

Thunderbird Cafe and Tap Room serves the Brentwood/Crestview neighborhood with a soulful attitude. Their honey nut latte amazes me every time, and their outdoor seating is the perfect spot to sip and study on a beautiful day.

Spiderhouse Cafe and Ballroom @spiderhouseatx

The best coffee shops have wifi, coffee, cozy places to sit, outside seating, and a beer if you want it. Spiderhouse is the perfect place to go for creative projects, group meetings, or even margaritas. The warm, unique vibe of Spiderhouse makes it a perfect place to gather.

Buzz Mill Coffee @buzzmillcoffee

Buzz Mill is a coffee shop unlike no other, open 24/7 even on holidays and known for their Honey Badger Latte that tastes as intriguing as it sounds. They have a lot of outdoor seating that’s perfect for a nice day and friendly workers that take pride in making your coffee how you like it.

Easy Tiger @easytiger

Easy Tiger is a bakeshop and beer garden with a range of coffee beverages and their fan-favorite cinnamon knots. The atmosphere is perfect for cranking out some work or getting together with friends.

Monkey Nest Coffee @monkeynest

Monkey Nest is an organic cafe and bakery that is open 24/7 on Burnet Road. Their bacon apple grilled cheese will change your life and you’d be crazy not to try a muffin while you’re there. It tends to fill up so I recommend calling beforehand to see how crowded they might be.

Lucky Lab @luckylabatx

Lucky Lab is a gem hidden beneath the craziness of West Campus. They offer any caffeinated beverage you could want and a variety of baked goods. Make sure to get their early if you want a Taco Deli breakfast taco, they go quick!

Summer Moon @summermooncoffee

Summer Moon is home to wood-fired coffee, cozy study spots, and it’s out of this world signature moon milk that tastes amazing in any of their coffee creations. I try something new each time I visit and I’m never disappointed.

Cosmic Coffee + Beer Garden @cosmiccoffeebeer

Cosmic Coffee and Beer Garden is a great excuse to travel to south Austin. Cosmic showcases local art, music, purveyors, and the craft community. The atmosphere is perfect for any occasion and the coffee is sourced from local roasters. Try a CBD shot in your coffee the next time you’re in the mood for maximum chilling.
