Java drives our early mornings, helps us beat the afternoon slump, and occasionally helps out in the evenings when we need an extra jolt. The next time you reach for a cup, I hope its at one of these amazing South Austin coffee shops. Which one is your fave?

Summer Moon | Multiple Locations

Coffee beans are hand-roasted daily, family owned and operated. Per their website, “we use no gas or electricity in our commercial roaster. We employ a wood fire for heat and human ingenuity (muscle) to power our roaster.” Customize your coffee sweetness and enjoy their delightful sweet treats as well as breakfast tacos. Crayons, toys and books in kid areas to entertain the littles is awesome! With locations on South First Street, Manchaca Street and 290 Highway near Dripping Springs, you have plenty of options to swing by.

Patika Coffee | 2159 S Lamar Blvd, Austin, TX 78704

Chill coffee shop on the weekdays, brunchy hot spot on the weekends. They love coffee so much that they started their own roasting company, Superthing Coffee Roasters, AKA the best coffee Austin has ever tasted.

Cosmic Coffee & Beer | 121 Pickle Rd, Austin, TX 78704

Coffee, cocktails and chickens, oh my! This spot is a true gem in South Austin featuring specialty coffees, locally brewed beer, craft cocktails, food trucks and live music. This outdoor spot is ideal for bringing the dog and kids to enjoy your coffee for hours.

Flat Track | 1619 E Cesar Chavez St, Austin, TX 78702

This place rules. I love the chill vibes and am a proud member of their Rise & Grind Coffee club. They roast their own beans so you know your coffee is fresh-fresh. I recommend trying their new parfaits!

Jo’s Coffee | 1300 S Congress Ave, Austin, TX 78704 

Yup, that Jo’s. Boasting the iconic “I Love You So Much” wall, hot coffee and good food. Don’t forget to snap a photo after you enjoy your Iced Turbo.

Stouthaus | 4715 S Lamar Blvd #102, Sunset Valley, TX 78745

Skip the line and order ahead!

Malone Specialty Coffee | 300 Congress Ave, Austin, Texas 78701

They offer various food items as well as their fresh roasted coffee drink selections. Butter coffee, cold brew and their signature drinks are all delicious. With FOUR shots of espresso in their large coffees, these drinks will get you ready to start your day! Bonus: the employees are always so friendly and willing to accommodate requests.

Radio Coffee & Beer | 4204 Manchaca Rd, Austin, TX 78704

Located in the heart of Austin, it does not get cooler than this place. Their small batch coffee partnered with Veracruz Tacos makes a perfect way to start your day. Or perhaps you’d prefer an IPA and a bite from the Shortwave Diner truck? That’s cool too.

Medici | 1100 South Lamar Blvd #2125, Austin, TX 78704

They believe “in the potential of coffee to cultivate community by creating memorable experiences through our commitment to hospitality and craft.” Love that. Also love their subscription options!

Spokesman Coffee | 440 E St Elmo Rd A-2, Austin, TX 78745

They roast their beans every Tuesday and Friday. The art on the walls is almost as good as their coffee.
