Best Coffee Shops in Austin

Summermoon Coffee Bar on 1st.

While this coffee shop is small in size, it makes up by having great service and an incredible atmosphere.
Summermoon is located in the heart of Austin, so make sure to plan your trip here well or you’ll encounter traffic, or worse – no parking spaces.
But walking a block or two for coffee infused with Moon-Milk is but a small obstacle, for such a great reward.

The shop is open seven days of the week.
Monday through Friday from 6 A.M. to midnight.
Saturday from 7 A.M. to 10 P.M.
Sunday from 7 A.M. to 8 P.M.

If you’re looking for a quiet place with good coffee to catch up on the homework or projects you left to the last second, then this place is the right place for you. With amenities such as free WiFi and a plethora of outlets to charge your devices, you’ll be so pleased and relaxed that you might end up not doing your homework anyway because you’ll be too busy making friends with other friendly folks that come here to enjoy the environment.

Not only that, but the bar has an outdoor porch where your fur babies are welcomed! (Must be on a leash, though).
Don’t forget to order a puppuccino for your best pal!

Epoch Coffee on North Loop Blvd.

You have probably already heard of this place. And chances are that you searched how to get there, and ended up at the wrong Epoch store.
Epoch Coffee has two shops. One in Braker Lane, and the one on North Loop.
While both shops have rich coffee, and cozy atmosphere, the North Loop Location has the advantage of being open 24 hours of the day.

Like most local shops in Austin, this place also allows for you to bring your pet (on a leash) on their covered patio.
They have two outside sections, one of them where smoking is allowed.
Inside the shop, you will find plenty of spaces and areas to sit and work.
Keep in mind that this place is widely popular, mostly because it is one of the few coffee shops in Austin that are open 24/7. So while they have plenty of seats and tables, that doesn’t mean you’ll find one open.
But what really makes this place a true gem, is their parking lot.
After the stores in the plaza close down for the day, you mostly always find a place to park.

Mozart’s Coffee Roasters Inc on Lake Austin Blvd.

Mozart’s Coffee is located next to the lake in Austin. With tables right next to water, and pretty far from major highways, you’re guaranteed to have a relaxing time here.

The coffee selection is pretty large but not as rich as the ones from our previously mentioned shops. But what they lack in coffee taste, they make up in pastries! Mozart’s has one of the largest selections of sweets to choose from, compared to other coffee shops in the area, and because of the water sounds and lack of noise-pollution, you’re guaranteed to have peace and quiet here. One of the drawbacks of this place is that if you are a nocturnal being that operates better after hours, then keep in mind the shop closes at midnight.

Another major perk of Mozart’s is the number of tables available! There is enough space here to accommodate hundreds of people. Unfortunately, their parking lot is just a fraction of that. If you can help it, tag along with a friend to get here, or take a Lyft, since finding parking here will be complicated.

Buzzmill on Riverside.

Is it a coffee shop? Or a bar? It’s both!
While they stop selling alcohol after 2 A.M., Buzzmill is open 24/7.
This place isn’t necessarily suited to do homework and relax unless your idea of relaxing includes live music and beer with coffee.
The Buzzmill’s atmosphere is designed to be a social place. The perfect place to go if you want coffee and your friends want to party!
While the number of seats inside the shop is very limited, they have a rather spacious covered patio and a stage for live music outside, along with a secondary bar.
While The Buzzmill doesn’t have a large parking lot to accommodate all the people that come at night, there is a plaza just next door where parking spaces are as abundant as the amount of bad drivers in the area.
But don’t let confusing traffic drive you away! This is the perfect place to start doing your home, and celebrate after a job well done!
