Austin Java, no matter what location, is a great spot for a for a nice, casual coffee on the patio. Food and location of this coffee institution is hard to beat! They serve breakfast, lunch, dinner entrees and alcohol, and also provide a kids menu. They serve breakfast all day, which is the best in my book, so check out the egg, sausage, mushroom and cilantro breakfast taco and enjoy a perfect experience of relaxation. The food is great but as the name implies, they are famous for the Java so don’t forget to order a cup (or two)!
2nd Street District, which is where one of the Austin Javas is located, is one of the best places to peruse in the city. Before or after your meal at Dine, walk around Lady Bird Lake or a block down the street to the 2nd Street District with heaps of restaurants, boutique clothing, barbershop and grocery store. They have continuous events throughout the year, and is a great place to spend the day or night.
TIP: Parking can be found on the link above.
Austin B-Cycle is one of the greatest ways for getting around the city, and they are right on location at the Austin Java, City Hall. With an iPhone App which keeps updating the locations, number of bikes and a map, it is one of the most convenient ways to explore Austin. There are daily, weekly, semester or annual memberships, it is a great option for those who are visiting or don’t want to deal with parking or walking. Check it out!
