Leave it to East Austin to come up with a new twist on the bland old corner store. This tiny tienda offers drink cooler staples, killer espresso, aguas frescas, farmers' market goodies, and the community ambience of a small-town grocer. Local artwork hangs on the walls, and local artists loiter around tables out front. Waiting for the bus at MLK and Chicon just got a whole lot fresher.
