Where I tend study for countless hours and enjoy one of their in-house roasts, handmade pastries, and MY GOD dat cheesecake, doe. From every Thursday through Sunday, you can enjoy live music at their outdoor deck surrounded by huge oak trees that overlooks tranquil and scenic Lake Austin


Leading the East Side coffee “grind”, Cuvee is pouring up some of Austin’s finest craft beers, coffees, and even has their extremely popular house nitro cold brew on tap. Being right on the same block as the Eastside Austin Craft Realty office doesn't hurt!

Cafe Medici-

This longtime Austin staple now has with 5 separate locations, including their recent Congress Ave. walk-up window in downtown Austin. My personal favorite is the original store in Clarksville for it’s homey and laid back vibes.


A south Austin gem, Radio has inviting outdoor seating and offers ample space to sprawl out. Hungry? Indulge on some of the best tacos in the town at the Veracruz food truck. Seriously though, the migas taco at Veracruz will change your whole philosophy on life. Enjoy live bluegrass music, trivia nights, and movie nights every day of the week. Whether you're enjoying a simple cup of coffee or you need a place to focus, Radio is your place.


Bennu Coffee-

Cafe Bennu is not for everyone, but if you’re into dim lighting, funky furniture, and great coffee, Bennu might be the perfect spot for you. Did I mention it’s open 24 hours a day, every day? Cash me inside shooting emails out to all my clients.
