I took a look at the forecast this morning and it looks like the rain is just gonna keep coming folks. It’s time to get up, get out of the snuggies, the slippers, and the sweatpants Get into the warmest coat you have and high tail it for the nearest coffee shop, where you’ll spend all day swapping stories of the crazy weather you had to endure. Because that’s the Austin way.
Austin is full of great coffee shops and more are popping up all the time, some are just quick stops for those on the go, some are cozy, warm, and meant to relax in. Considering the fact it’s the weekend and we don’t have anywhere to go, today we’re focusing on the coffee shops meant to spend your day in.
