First Look: Radio Coffee & Beer

Radio Coffee & Beer Austin Texas

I’ve been stalking Radio Coffee & Beer. Mr. Betty and I have walked over a few times to see the progress. (Yes, WALKED. In Austin. What a novelty.) They got the place going expeditiously and we walked over for Saturday’s soft opening.

I love what they did to the space, which used to be Cliff Fort’s Flower Market. The natural beauty of the wood floors, walls, and ceilings is the star of the show. Bright and airy, the light fixtures, framed menus behind the counter, and colorful beer taps give the place a touch of retro chic.

With lots of great beer and coffee offerings, the most special thing on the menu is definitely the cold brew on nitro. Yes, coffee on nitro. It was like I died and went to heaven. The coffee was rich and chocolately with a nice creamy head. Like a luxurious Guinness that wakes you up. The fantastic offering by Stumptown Coffee Roasters is a smooth cup that should be consumed black.

I’ll be back for more of those and also for some Veracruz tacos. They were closed by the time we got there on Saturday, but next time I’ll be sure to get there earlier.

There’s plenty of seating, both inside and out. I’m sure they will pack it in on live music nights. The attendance at the soft opening was equal parts hipster and hippie, an accurate representation of our South Austin neighborhood. It’s got a big yard beautiful yard and already feels like home.

  1. […] I’m a softie for repurposed houses. I like coming here after a long work week to just drink a half pour of a milk stout and then follow it up with a latte. The patio lounge chairs are inviting. No wifi after 5pm. I learned this the hard way! Come here to socialize in groups or enjoy the chill vibes with a date. Check out my friend Mad Betty’s review.

    Nevermind. I thought I clicked the link and just got your picture. Must have clicked your top picture accidentally.

      No, you’re right. I shouldn’t make you click through for that info. Just added it to the bottom of the post. Thanks for reading and for the feedback. See you at Radio!

      I don’t know the address off hand but this is right behind Dan’s Hamburgers and Tire Man on Manchaca Rd. and Ben White. Hope this helps.
