Figure 8 in East Austin doesn't have the serious atmosphere that many Austin coffee shops give off, but the coffee is nothing to joke about. For example, the La Marzocco Italian espresso machine practically lights up the place. The coffee shop features roasters from Portland and San Francisco in addition to local roasters such as Tweed and Wild Gift. The friendly service attracts musicians, DJs and anyone wanting a great cup of coffee. Pastries are the only food option on the menu, but there's plenty of alcohol options.
