Coffee shops

If you are looking to connect with someone, nothing beats a live face to face meeting over a cup of coffee. Below are some of my favorites by general location.



  • ALTA’s Café – 74 Trinity St. – Right off Lady Bird Lake
  • Caffé Medici - 1101 W Lynn St
  • Caffé Medici - 200 Congress Avenue
  • Cenote - 1010 E Cesar Chavez St.
  • Halcyon – 218 W. 4th St. - A true downtown Austin establishment
  • Irene’s – 506 West Ave.
  • Juan Pelota - 400 Nueces Street
  • Mozart's Coffee - 3825 Lake Austin Blvd. A fantastic place to meet an investor, entrepreneur or co-founder. And the coffee is excellent - another favorite of mine.
