We have been inspired by Mark Batterson’s idea of how the coffee shop resembles a modern-day version of the well in Jesus’ time. A place of learning, of nourishment, and of enlightenment where people come together in harmony. You’ll often find one or more of us working or collaborating in an Austin coffee shop, and channeling the Spirit of the Lord to guide us in our purpose.
We challenge you to reach out to someone this week and meet them in a coffee shop. Do a bible study or simply catch up on how He is working in your life. If you are going through a tough time, share that with one another and provide community and support. Connect over latte art and love.
Not sure where to start? Don’t worry, we’re experts. Here are our must-visit’s of Austin.
Mozart’s | 3825 Lake Austin Blvd.
We love Mozart’s because there is space. Sometimes, a coffee shop can feel a little too claustrophobic and good luck finding a spot to seat 3 or more people. This won’t be a problem at Mozart’s. With multiple, sprawling decks, you can find a cozy spot inside or a table right on breezy Lake Austin.
Cenote | 1010 E. Cesar Chavez
Also blessed with space, you’ll love the East Austin-vibe of this house-turned-coffee shop. They have a great breakfast and snack menu that features a lot of variety and locally-sourced options. Along with great coffee, they have wonderful teas, including a refreshing hibiscus, for those who are non-coffee drinkers. Even further, the selection of beer and wine is a plus for those evening get-together’s.
Radio Coffee & Beer | 4204 Manchaca Rd.
Nestled in South Austin near the intersection of Manchaca and Ben White Blvd, this gem won best Coffee Shop in 2016 from the Austin Chronicle. Bonus: they have their own parking lot! In addition to a intense passion for coffee and beer that shows through their service, Radio also hosts a ton of events including trivia night, TV show screenings, and karaoke.
Stouthaus | 4715 S. Lamar
Stouthaus is Caitlyn’s personal favorite, with a claim it makes her “more creative”. A buzzy vibe with plenty of parking, an outside patio, and amazing iced vanilla lattes, Stouthaus won’t disappoint. In the mornings, you’ll also find TacoDeli tacos available. Stouthaus is technically a coffee pub, which is seemingly the normal in Austin, so you’ll find a wide selection of craft brews as well.
Stonehouse | 1105 S. Lamar
Another frequent of ours, and not to be confused with “Stout-house” on S. Lamar, Stonehouse is a quaint house-turned-coffee shop in the heart of SoLa. It is a revival of the historic Dawson Stone House. With a rare parking lot behind it, and acclaimed food truck Luke’s Inside Out right next door, you’ll feel right at home. They have interesting options, like a Horchata Latte, and classic coffee drinks. Insider tip: get the punch card!
