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
