Austin >Ran Smith Coffee Co
Give me a break. Ran is a nice guy, but the best coffee in town??? Not by a long shot.He just happens to be convenient as well as bein a nice guy. Pleeeeaase. He has a captive audience being the only coffee shop in Austin Diagnostic Medical Center which houses a ton of employees plus all the visitors. He very likely told everyone in the building to go on the web and vote for him.
It's in a hospital. I met Ran and he is an extremely nice person, with great service. What I did not realize his coffee shop is a stand located in a hospital in North Austin. I'm sure Ran would agree that if he is serious about coffee, he would minimally move out of the hospital. As is now (minus exceptional service), there is not a whole lot to compare with corporate hated Starbucks or Dunkin Donut's in the northeast.
The Absolute Best. At both locations, the staff is awesome. They all remember the name of regulars, what they order, etc. Ran is like a good friend, shrink and bartender for everyone. The other employees of this family business are just as great, also. As the other reviewers mentioned, he will make you a perfect cup no matter what it is you like - Chai, Mocha, plain coffee or some custom concoction...ask Ran for an FP for an over-the-top treat!
The Only Choice. Of all the cups of coffee in the world, I would choose Ran Smith's.
Americano Lover. Best cup of Joe in town. Funny to see this David vs. Goliath (read: Starbucks) scenerio play out and the local boy is winning. Way to go. Americano's are the best at Ran's place.
Go Ran. Absolutely the best coffee shop in town or anywhere else.
Ran is Awesome!!!. Ran always remembers you and what you want, and I only go in every other week. Good prices, with frequent "drinker" card. Excellent quality coffee and Tea. If you are in NAMC, best coffee around. Only downfall is prices are similiar as Starbucks.
ooh la la.
Not only does Ran make the best cup of coffee in town, he serves it up with a smile and a friendly comment!
Born and raised in Austin, Ran Smith Coffee Co should be on every corner!
Ran's coffee is always fresh roasted !!!!
His service is fast and friendly...
Ran's Kwick Kick Kaffeine Klub. Ran jump-starts my day with a great cup of reasonably priced strong coffee (which I prefer) and he does it with energy, enthusiasm and a generous splash of humor. I always leave with a smile and a steaming cup of my favorite ready to face another day of the grind.
