Austin >Food & Dining > Esotico Gelato Cafe
Friendly, outstanding coffee, good food, free internet, and gelato, too....
A gelato shop, yes, but for me it's my favorite coffee shop.
I like to work here during the day for a couple of hours around lunchtime. They have wireless internet and power for my laptop.
The owner, Michael, always says "hello," and he has put together a helpful and friendly team.
Michael's mission in life, as I understand it, is to make the perfect cup of coffee. He has the best espresso machine that money can buy, and he keeps it tuned like a vintage Ferrari.
Not on the menu is a special treat called "affogato." It's a scoop of ice cream, usually vanilla, in a cup of espresso. It's a perfect pick-me-up during the day.
Sometimes I eat lunch here. Their "Godfather" sandwich is my favorite. It comes with a side salad.
My wife and I bring our kids for special treat. They love tasting the gelato flavors.
Now Michael's serving breakfast tacos, and brunch on weekends, so I'll come anytime I'm hungry or thirsty.
Give it a try. You'll be happy you did.
Editorial Review. This elegant neighborhood cafe offers residents of the Austin area authentic Italian gelato, coffee, sandwiches, and much more.
This place has everything!!! Excellent gelato, bakery, esspresso, deli, and healthy living. The best cappuccino I had in a long time!. This place has everything!!! The best gelato I ever had and my kids loved it. They also have a large selection of fat free and dairy free sorbet that taste like the gelato. Not only did they have great gelato, they have excellent sandwiches and salads using some organic products and green line, recyclable packaging and containers.. They have top of the line panini sandwiches, excellent salads, side dishes that are healthy and taste great, homemade bakery products( try there kolaches!!!! The best I ever had!!), healthy homemade muffins, yogurt parfaits, brownies, breakfast croissant sandwiches and so much more!!!! And if you like espresso, cappuccino's and lattes, you will love their grind. And they even have an art section for kids to draw, while your busy doing other things. Great selection, great atmosphere, and excellent customer service.!! I'm so glad I discovered this place!!
