Austin Java

From the original on Lamar, the local coffee minichain has become as much a part of Austin as guitars and bats – there's even a Java at City Hall! Now, with their soon-to-open outlet at the airport, Austin Java's rich, dark brews and oh-so-scrumptious all-day menu could be the first stop for visitors flying in and the last taste of the 512 before they fly out. But whether you're getting it served on their hardwood floors or taking a catering delivery at your door, raise a mug of locally roasted joe and remember why they've become local faves.
