I moved away from Austin seven or eight years ago but return at least once a year. Traditionally, the best place to drink a cup of coffee was Little City, and the best place to buy beans was Anderson's. Has this changed? What is the consensus among Austin coffee nerds?
I'll be in Austin for a week and spending a lot of time writing. I need a nice cafe with outstanding coffee, free wireless Internet, and decent snacks. Where should i go?
Also, is any cafe really obsessing over its espresso--ie, spending a lot of energy pulling rich, delicious shots, and not just stuff to add a little color to warm milk, a la Starbucks?
Thanks in advance.
