Only a block from the Austin Convention Center, The Coffee Cup is the best place for conference attendees to satisfy their coffee fix. The Coffee Cup is actually an American branch of a Central and South American firm (outside of Austin, the other locations are in Ecuador and Honduras). Central America is known for coffee, and the coffee at The Coffee Cup is really good. Adding to the enjoyment is a soundtrack of Latin American music playing in the background. The Coffee Cup also sells french presses, cold-brewing systems, cups, mugs and pounds of thier excellent whole-bean coffees. There is also a limited food and pastry menu. One word of caution- they close really early, about 5 PM as I recall.
