Cafe, Coffee Shop, Contemporary, $$$
For good espresso and an engaging atmosphere, spend some time at the locally owned Houndstooth Coffee. Both Austin locations feature sleek, bright interiors with wood finishings, concrete floors, and plenty of seating. At the downtown location, a whole wall to the right of the coffee bar is mostly made up of windows, flooding the space with light and illuminating the bright red backsplash behind the counter. Sip one of their iced brews or hot espressos while you mull over a book in their light-filled modern space.
