Progress Coffee: Austin, TX
Knowledgeable baristas whip up lattes and cappuccinos with fair-trade organic beans from Owl Tree Roasting in this former warehouse with a porch. Don’t overlook a biscuit with your joe (especially the city-appropriate jalapeño), and take your time so that you can soak up the East Austin scene. The walls display fun, bold local art, and the music changes with the time of day.
Local Knowledge: Hot Texas weather sapping your energy? Opt for the Iced Lightning, which will put a swagger back in your step. —Wayne Curtis
