coffee: UNANSWERED QUESTIONS - 08/02/10 07:25 AM

* If 4 out of 5 people SUFFER from diarrhea...does that mean that one enjoys it?

coffee: Roasters NW Austin ~ Best Coffee Around - 07/28/10 10:46 AM

When you or someone you know is truly deserving of a treat then check out the "Cupprimo".  Located on the Southwest corner of Hwy.183 and Spicewood Springs Rd. in an aging strip center in NW Austin.

I ventured in and got 2 iced lattes and carrot cupcakes...mouth watering delicious!! 
They have been open a year this month and are opening another location in Round Rock.  They have $1.9 12oz. … (4 comments)

If you haven't found "Teo Caffee" in the 26 Doors Shopping Center on 38th St., then you need to put it on your "bucket" list.  Right next door to Sweet Charity, you will find a wonderful place to try world-class espresso, unforgettable gelato and imported fine chocolates in an ambiance reminiscent of old world Italy Austin style!
In 2006, Austin voters in the Restaurant Poll named Teo the best local coffeeshop, best gelato, espresso and affogato! They pledge to use the freshest, most natural ingredients available.
You should visit on line at and clip a coupon for "buy a gelato" and … (0 comments)
