Caffe Medici- Austin, TX
Mark was working in Austin recently and he came across a neat coffee shop. I begged him to write about it in return for some movie reviews for his blog Movies, Films & Flix. Obviously he agreed and now you get to check out this cool coffee haven. I’m kind of jealous that I didn’t get to experience this, I mean check out that artfully designed foam…and that oatmeal?! Chocolate…coconut…I think it has my name on it!

When I work a Comic Con I need a whole lot of coffee. I’m talking buckets of coffee. My synapses needs to be firing when the thousands of storm troopers come bursting through the doors. If I don’t have my coffee this is what happens.
Austin and Toronto have been the best cities for coffee. The reason for this is because the convention centers were located downtown and I was able to stop in at readily available coffee spots. My co-worker Jake discovered Caffe Medici during a run and suggested we stop there before work on Sunday. We walked a couple blocks and entered the magical place. Jazz was playing in the background, the smell of pretentious coffee floated in the air and the ambiance screamed “read a newspaper in here.”
On Sunday I ordered a Latte and a blueberry muffin. I enjoyed both. I would have taken a picture sooner but I was hungry and I figured you wouldn’t mind if half the muffin was missing.
We even had some extra excitement when a bunch of seltzer water exploded in the baristas face. Our visit was cut short because I had to go do important things like this:
The next day Jake and I went back . I got a Latte and chocolate, coconut and peanut butter oatmeal. The coffee and food hit the spot while I expanded my mind by reading “Tim Tebow Wins Ugly” and other various football news in USA Today.
If you are ever in Austin and want to enjoy a chill spot with good coffee stop by Caffe Medici and read a newspaper.
