After working at the SXSW Music, Film and Interactive Tradeshow for 5 days straight, we were so excited to finally be able to enjoy our first free morning! We headed on over to hip and funky South Congress area, also referred to by locals as “SoCo,” in search of what most would call, the best coffee shop in Austin:

He loved it SO MUCH that we went back on our last day so he could enjoy it all over again!

A tempting as that was, I went for a classic cup of Jo… at Jo’s! It was absolutely delicious, a smoky roast with no bitter aftertaste, and any place that offers almond milk gets a gold star in our book!

Drew ordered two breakfast tacos, which Jo’s gets fresh daily from a local shop called Taco Deli, known to have THE BEST tacos in Austin. They were served warm and went incredibly well with his Iced Turbo and my DELICIOUS vegan chocolate chip muffin:

Each bite fell off easier than the next and my cup of coffee tasted so delicious in between the bites.

Rolled oats, maple syrup, brown sugar, butter, vanilla, honey, pecans and almonds, all mixed together with a creamy mound of yogurt and cinnamon – SO GOOOOD:

We loved the SoCo location not only because it’s the original and it has that awesome I love you so much wall, but because it created an awesome open-air atmosphere that no other coffee shop in Austin has to offer.

After getting our fill of yummies, we walked the streets of South Congress for some of people watching, local art and live music, the fact that it was SXSW only made it all the more interesting:
