Sip java at Genuine Joe, Circa 13, or Cuppa Austin
North Austin has its very own array of quirky coffeehouses. Genuine Joe and Epoch Coffee – Circa 13 are located on W Anderson within half a mile of one another, while Cuppa Austin infuses the community along W Parmer with mocha-y cheer. At Genuine Joe, order a Java Rocket or Bananarama for a tastebud explosion. Circa 13 boasts a wide range of wonderful teas, pizzas, and more, but it’s their high-quality coffee that will make you feel like royalty. If you’re in the mood to mix things up, head to Cuppa Austin and try their new “Cafe Fizz” coffee, or order an affogato for an espresso-drowned ice cream delight.
