I typically stop at Austin Java on Barton Springs on my way to work and have coffee or breakfast. It's a very nice place to sit and read, use your laptop, basically hang out or get things done by yourself. It's also a great place to meet for lunch or dinner, though I have to say of all the food I've tried I like their breakfasts and desserts (and coffee) best. I've found that their other entrées looks better than they taste. Not that they're bad, just not as I good as I would expect. (like their turkey burger - too much bread involved) Of course, I've yet to try everything on the menu. They also show a movie on their back porch at 8 pm on Fridays, and they're open late.
