Mozart’s cafe is one of Austin’s famous landmarks; on our list of must see & do things in Austin when we have out of town guests; and just a place to go to, if we want to do something! We have visited this place so many times that I can review a large set of things on the menu, with even menu changes in different seasons of the year!
Mozart’s is not just a coffee shop, it’s a relaxing weekend afternoon get away, a comfortable and peaceful place to work in mornings with coffee, laptop with complimentary wi-fi, it’s a scenic and beautiful place to watch the sunset in Lake Austin, it’s a great place to chill after dinner for coffee and desert, it’s a fun place to be on Friday nights and weekend evenings with live music,…….it’s a happening place.
The place attracts an interesting kind of crowd, the university kids, trendy youth, older Austinite’s, the artsy folk, the celebrities, the techs, the geeks, the intellectuals, the writers, the musically inclined, the fun lovers, the romantics, the teenagers, families with little ones, large groups of friends and families, women and men of various ages… the place is simply appealing with its stimulating and refreshing ambience with great outdoor and indoor seating. If you are an ‘Austinite’, you know Mozart’s!
The Coffee is fresh with strong aromatic flavor. The place boasts an in-house roaster with specialty and gourmet coffees. I have had all their warm beverages, their Bottomless Coffee, Espresso, Latte, Cappucino, Mocha, Mozart’s Mocha, Cafe Au Lait, Hot Cocoa, Hot Tea and Steamers, and all are perfect. My kids especially love their Steamers and Hot Cocoa. Their cold drinks like Mochaccino’s, Frappes and Smoothies with the seasonal fruits are equally refreshing. Lastly the desserts here are delectable with our favorites being their carrot cake, brownies and cheese cakes. These are wonderfully decadent.
Like I said, anytime is good time for coffee at Mozart’s, but its especially very beautifully decorated during the holiday season and I can already see ourselves seated outdoors overlooking the lake, on a stary night, enjoying a cold evening with my kids drinking their hot cocoa or steamers with brownies, while I am sipping coffee while sharing a decadent carrot cake with my spouse! While writing this review, I am recollecting all the beautiful memories I had at Mozart’s with family and friends and have plans for many more…
Mozart’s Cafe hence is on the must do things in Austin for its invigorating experience!
