We had to wait at the Mexican restaurant across the way so we stopped by. James prepared our drink. This dude has a great attitude and super friendly. Nice little coffee shop. My Chi Tea Latte was average. But I enjoyed the atmosphere and James made the place.

Stopped here for about an hour and had a smoothie made to order. This place is ideal for anyone who wants to have a pit stop and has a laptop etc as plenty of power outlets on offer and free wifi. Felt a bit out of place as we were the only 2 not hooked to some technology.

Years here as a customer. Spotty drinks, depends on who's here. Today, 11-6-15, dark haired guy barista. Drinks made out of order, so you have to wait for your party, makes drinks weak, and STIRS all of the lattes. Who does that? I wish I could have given my tip back that I gave at the register. I think I'll... More

There may be other non- corporate coffee spots in town... I just know what I like. Set in an old house, they make a good latte. There is a patio for nice days or to bring your dog. Nothing fancy...just old time Austin.

On Anderson Lane is a house which has been converted into a coffee shop. I’d visited here a number of times, so it seemed like a good place for my friends to meet after work one night. There’s a decent amount of parking in the back, so it served as a good locale to wait out rush-hour traffic. The interior... More

I spent several weeks working in north Austin in February, March, and April of 2014. During that time, I visited Genuine Joe a few times each week. Sometimes I enjoyed chatting with other customers I met there. Sometimes I just enjoyed reading or using the wifi. The atmosphere is comfortable, with several chairs and sofas, and rooms that can be... More

This is probably the best place in Austin to get a good strong Mocha latte. The place is very much in the 'keep austin wierd' camp, so your experience is subjective, as is the level of service (courtesy and speed) depending on who is working. However, if you just want to get the best espresso in town this place delivers.... More
