Described as the “perfect East Austin coffeehouse”, Vintage Heart is a charming home for coffee lovers and young professionals. It’s not too loud and never too packed, but that hasn’t stopped it from being a popular hangout for Austinites. The staff is kind and helpful and very knowledgeable in its many coffee concoctions. The lattes are artfully crafted and many of the drinks come in mason jars! Visitors love its vintage look and delightful home décor.

Well known to everyone as having some of the best coffee in Austin, Mozart’s is a classic study spot filled with delicious treats, lovely lake breezes, and a calming atmosphere. They roast their coffee beans in store, saving you an authentic taste that’s unlike many others in Austin. If you’re a coffee fiend, we highly suggest Mozart’s! But coffee isn’t the only thing they’re known for. It rests along the shore of beautiful Lake Austin. With a huge outdoor patio, you can sip on your Cappuccino while listening to the sounds of tweeting birds and sloshing waves. What better way to study Calculus?

Dominican Joe’s is packed with not only delicious coffee, but also fresh and exotic juice blends as well. Sip on some Mojito Limeade or Italian Crème Soda the next time you have a paper to write or an exam to cram for. With free Wi-Fi and easy parking, this is a hot spot for college students. But this is not just a place to enjoy a delicious coffee and a relaxing read; it’s also a great place to give back. A portion of their profits go to Makarios, a non-profit organization committed to educational and economic development in the Dominican Republic. Be sure to hit up Dominican Joe’s this finals season!
