This is that pink coffee shop in Austin that you've probably seen in pictures (because it photographs really well.) Revival is one of the most-photographed coffee shops in east Austin. It's pretty cute!
They have all the espresso classics that you expect, like lattes and cappuccinos. But while you're here, order one of their specialty drinks like the fruity pebbles latte with lavender and matcha.
4. Flitch Coffee
Want a cute little coffee trailer in East Austin? Check out Flitch! They're in a renovated 1952 spartan trailer that's permanently parked under a canopy of big shady trees. There's a little seating area to the left of the coffee bar.
Flitch serves specialty coffee. They work with nationally-renowned roasters to source the best beans and serve really high quality drinks. You can also order locally-sourced biscotti, breakfast tacos, pastries, kombucha, and more.

The staff is friendly and knowledgable. There are a few indoor and outdoor seats where you can sit a while and enjoy your latte.
6. Fleet Coffee
Fleet Coffee Co. might be the teeniest coffee shop in east Austin, but it is mightier than its square footage. It was created by two barista pros, and over the years Fleet has continued to serve from an impressive coffee program.
This east Austin coffee shop just feels very Austin-y and cool. Trust us on this one.
7. Lazarus Brewing Co
While it's technically a brewery, Lazarus opens early and has a robust coffee program. They roast their beans in-house and have a full menu with drip coffee and espresso-based drinks.
This is a really popular evening/weekend hangout spot, but on the weekday mornings, it's pretty quiet. If you want a guaranteed spot to sit with your laptop to get work done, Lazarus is it. Psst: they have really good breakfast tacos here.
8. Brew & Brew
This industrial coffee shop and bar is in an area of town called "east downtown." It's just on the east side of I35, convenient to both downtown Austin and east Austin.
They have rolling garage doors that stay open on pretty days, and a great coffee program. Go in the afternoons/evenings for a beer from their sizable tap wall, or pop in early for coffee and breakfast.
9. Figure 8 Coffee Purveyors
This chic and cozy coffee shop in east Austin is a fun spot for coffee dates...solo or social. They've been roasting and serving their own coffee since 2014.
It's a small building that has a very "east Austin vibe" to it. There's a small counter, some indoor seating, and whitewashed brick walls with greenery spilling over from potted plants. It's a very calming place to enjoy a morning cup of joe.
10. Greater Goods Roasting
Drink coffee for the greater good! For every bag purchased, Greater Goods Roasting donates to a Texas charity.
Their east Austin coffee shop is bright and airy. The signature orange color pops throughout the otherwise bright, neutral space. Their coffee is exceptional; this is a good spot to grab souvenirs like a bag to-go or a travel coffee mug.
