Austin’s Coffee

As I begin traveling around the Orlando area in search for some of the coolest hot spots for coffee, I stumbled upon an interesting little coffee house that’s actually opened 24hrs, Austin’s Coffee. Do you know how important that is? A 24hr. coffee house is like one of God’s greatest gifts to the late night always on the go person, like myself. Now, Starbucks has gone and literally perfected the perfect temperature for their drinks, so I am always a little hesitant when it comes to taking my first sip.

Austin's Coffee

But Austin’s has done a great job of making sure when they make your cup it isn’t burning your taste buds off. At Austin’s you’ll find a slew of board games, and a bunch of people just socializing and have a great time in the diner style booths and funky victorian couches. There’s even a set of movie chairs straight from a theatre. They have in my opinion, the typical acoustic guitar player playing some live music. In all, the experience at Austin’s was a great one, and I will continue to go back, especially on a late night! Overall I would give Austin’s Coffee a 3.5 out 5 stars. They provide a good cup of coffee, just the open mic events need to be a bit more entertaining, good coffee drinking atmosphere!

Peace & Love,

Natura Coffee and Tea

The Jabronis

 

This was a wonderful small coffee house just on the boarder of the UCF campus, so I am assuming it’s a central hub for a lot of the UCF fine arts kinds to hang out. It’s not only a coffee house, but a hookah lounge, as well as a full on bar with all sorts of different beers, and some wine. While chilling with my Red Table buddy Antonio we enjoyed a rock/alternative band called The Jabronis it was a great time, and they rocked out!

 

For my first time at Natura Coffee and Tea I was pleased with the atmosphere and the people that were around, however; I wasn’t so pleased with the Irish Cream Latte. The foam on the top was amazing, but the coffee itself was bland, and didn’t have a real good taste. I do plan on going back in the hopes of trying something different. I know every Sunday is Open Mic night so if you love that kind of stuff make sure to check out Natura Coffee and Tea. Overall I would give Natura Coffee and Tea a 3 out of 5 stars. The coffee is just too hot, but there is a great college atmosphere for you to enjoy.

 

Peace & Love,
