Find some inspiration for your own interiors after the jump!
Irie Bean Coffee Bar 2310 South Lamar Suite 102, Austin, TX 78704
The interior of the Irie Bean Coffee Bar features an expansive coffee bar, colorful accent cabinets, comfortable seating and varied wall décor. The real gem of this coffee shop, though, is the exterior space. A suspended canopy and fun furniture create intimate seating areas and a spaceship-like structure adds a bit of whimsy to the outdoor area.
Ruta Maya 3601 South Congress Avenue Suite D-200 Austin, TX 78704 512-707-9637
Perched on top of a hill off of South Congress (located in a suite of the Penn Field Business Center) Ruta Maya Coffee Shop's interior space foregoes the usual elements of a coffee shop, namely the dark colors and cozy spaces, in favor of a wide open, warehouse feel with tall ceilings and exposed industrial ductwork.
Jo's Hot Coffee and Good Food 1300 South Congress Austin, Texas 78704
A South Congress favorite, Jo's on Congress doesn't exactly have an interior space, so to speak. What it does have, however, is enough style to make up for the lack of walls. It also sports a surprising array of colorful chairs, locals and dogs.
Dominican Joe 515 South Congress Ave Suite 108 Austin, TX 78704
Dominican Joe features a standard coffee shop palette of colors, but stands out in terms of floor level changes, seating arrangements and size (it's an incredibly accommodating space).
Bouldin Creek Coffeehouse
1501 South First
Austin, Texas 78704
The interior of Bouldin creek is cozy and porch-like. Visitors to this shop get a variety of seating options, from the coffee bar to interior tables to a wealth of outdoor seating. Although space is a bit limited on busy days, it is still a colorful and interesting interior.
