Austin's Best Coffee Shops, Fall 2014

View as Map

For students and freelancers alike, work and cafes go hand in hand. The beginning of September means that school is back in session and work is gearing up for a new quarter. Lots of buzzy new coffee shops popped up since the previous coffee map, like Cuvee and Radio Coffee and Beer. Here's the latest and greatest on where to caffeinate while hunched over a laptop (or maybe a book).

It's appropriate that Cherrywood is named after its neighborhood, because it's a true community space. They are very much a coffee shop of the old school, with a huge outdoor performance space and lots of tables to while away the afternoon with friends and kids and friends' kids and a couple dogs, too. Their coffee menu covers the classics, and their massive breakfast tacos are not to be missed.
