Best

As ridiculous as it sounds, Spider House really has become a second home to me. I spend hours there nearly every day and I am on a first name basis with almost all of the employe...

Worst

I used to have to meet here with a school group I was in. It's dark and loud, and the coffee does not taste that great. My friend ordered a drink and the soy milk had gone bad - i...

Great Atmosphere and food 5/20/2007

The garden area and the inside are pure Austin. The food caters to even the most discerning of vegans, yet those who crave other cuisine also can be satisfied. One of my favorite places in town. more

I Wish My Backyard Looked Like This! 4/6/2006

I've only been here once, but that one visit definitely made a strong impression of me. The Coffee house is a huge place consisting of an indoor AND outdoor area. It's like being in somebody's ultra cool backyard, covered in xmas lights, antique-y looking lawn furniture, and colors. I also loved their menu and the fact that they serve coffee AND alcohol. WHen I visit Austin again, I will definitely be back! more

Eh. 10/8/2005

Good atmosphere, bad coffee. The place itself is really cool to mingle/chill, and the courtyard is set up in a neat way, but the drinks are really lacking. The girl working the espresso bar put milk in my latte (I'm allergic to dairy) when I requested soy, so I had to take it back and got glared at. It can get super crowded on weekends too. more

Melting Pot of Austin People 8/16/2005

An older building tucked away in west campus near Trudy’s, this Austin specific place is an older local hangout for many college students and austinites alike. You will find a ton of people gathering for studying or socializing. Many people bring laptops and spend entire days hanging out. Inside you can hang out and play a board game or two. The drinks are average for a coffee joint, but a very cool atmosphere overall. more

The Best 8/15/2005

Spider House is the best coffee shop in town hands down. Great coffee (beer too!), great atmosphere, and great people watching. Hipsters walk by yuppies who walk by hard studying college students. Check out their movie theater in the back where they show great obscure movies every night. They have free wireless internet which is a godsend if you have some work to do, I wrote my entire graduate thesis here! more

Cool, hip coffee house by campus 8/7/2005

When you're in school, you need places to meet up with other people. Coffee houses fit the bill. The more local you can get, the cooler you appear. Spiderhouse is 'the coffeehouse' for people near campus. It's funky, eclectic and cool. It has this bohemian, hippy, christmas like, techno geek on laptops, pretentious sophmore philosophist, post party chillers feel. Outdoor seating offers more at night, along the semi-romantic feel another poster mentioned. However, Mozarts would be a better place for that kind of stuff. It's a great place to meet up with a friend and relax. The coffee/food isn't why you would go here. The service is spotty as well. But the environment is friendly and coffee is only a token reason why you would be here. more

Beautiful surroundings 8/6/2005

I am not a coffee drinker whatsoever, but this is one of my favorite spots to hangout in Austin. It is best to steer clear of the place around finals or midterms due to the students. But it is so beautiful at night there. The building inside and out is so eclectic and fun to be with. I have enjoyed sharing it with lots of friends and having some great conversations there over dessert and various drinks. One of the best times to go is when it actually cools off outside; you can really enjoy the ambience that the lights provide. a semi-romantic date would be really fun to end the night here. It is also a place to study if you like being around people to study. more
