Jo's second location in Austin has a bit more interior space than its South Congress cousin, but still has plenty of style and good coffee. Located in the 2nd Street District, Jo's downtown features a hip outdoor seating area and a large interior space with modern seating and even cooler light fixtures.
Also featuring multiple locations throughout Austin, the downtown branch of Austin Java is located in the ultra-modern Austin City Hall. With ample outdoor seating and lots of people-watching opportunities, the interior of Austin Java has a cozy, artsy feel to it.
Halcyon Coffeehouse, located in the Warehouse District downtown, caters to a variety of Austin residents in a hip, high-ceiling corner location with lots of different types of seating. If you're craving something a little stronger than coffee you're in luck: Halcyon is also a bar and lounge.
More of a drive through or walk up to stand, (with no public interior to speak up) Emerald City Press deserves a mention due to its gorgeous decor details, like their emerald green tiles and wood paneling.
If you're looking for that traditional coffee shop look in a modern environment, Caffe Medici is for you. It's comfortable and reliable and features a lot of neat stone outdoor seating, too. Although it's a bit outside of the Downtown area, it's still a close enough bike ride!
