Mañana Coffee*

1603 S Congress Ave
Austin, TX 78704

In my many trips to Austin, I’ve been to twenty-ish coffee shops.  It means a lot when I say Mañana is my favorite in the city (so far).  Set just off the craziness that is South Congress, Mañana is tucked away off a serene little courtyard.  It feels like an island of quiet in the middle of the city.  Chatting with the baristas here, it was clear these people take pride in their work.  The place is minimalistic with relatively sparse seating, lofty ceilings, and tall windows.  Maybe its a commentary on how the coffee should speak for itself, but it makes the artistic accents they do have really pop.  Bonus points for the coolest Strada I’ve ever seen (pictured above).
