I am really picky about my coffee and was surprised at how good this really was. Nice acidic balance. Clean flavor up front, very earthy through the middle but it tailed off a bit at the end and fell flat. Staff was quick and polite. Clean and tidy inside...

Nice place to sit and have a coffee, small menu. They specialize in fresh, pressed coffee, not the fancy stuff like Starbucks makes. You can still order a mocha or a latte, but its not their specialty. This is a huge trend in austin and the price reflects it. Their prices for just coffee may seem high, but its comparable... More

Caffe Medici is my all time favorite coffee place. Not just because the coffee is wonderful, which it is, but more because of the people that work there, hang-out there, or just appreciate great coffee. With five locations in town, there are many options for grabbing a cup, when you are on the go. Finally, the place has some nice... More

We stumbled on Medici on our way to another breakfast restaurant. There was a good crowd inside so we decided to jump inside. The place itself is nice and filled with computer using patrons. The coffee is nice but their snacks and breakfast (from TacoDeli) is very average - there isn't even enough cream cheese for a "bagel with cream... More

Good coffee really, but the service is not as good as the coffee. It was the 3rd time I went there, usually there's a cashier and a barista, this time the cashier wasn't there, so I turned to the barista and asked: excuse me, I would like a latte with caramel. He was washing a mug, on hearing me, he... More

I always search out small independent coffee shops as I travel. This has some of the best coffee ever. I had a latte. The hours posted on the TripAdvisor app are wrong, as they are open early. Google says hours are 6:30am to 10pm. It is a small shop with limited parking.

Mid-morning was actually mid-day since I was up by (04:00) and had had little to eat or drink before stopping at this fine eatery. Not that I sleep that well anyway, but our (my better half + me) were up early to board the first Southwest flight to AUS. So, after meeting daughter #1 & her significant other, they gave... More
