Need your Monday morning fix? Check out Houndstooth Coffee in Austin, Texas, named one of America's Best Coffee Bars by Food & Wine! In addition to stocking beans from premium roasters like Cuvee, Counter Culture, Intelligentsia and Verve, Houndstooth’s in-house training program has coached a handful of local barista champs. Bare concrete floors give this café a modern, minimalist vibe; on "fancy Fridays," baristas dress up in bow ties and other finery, a fun contrast to casual-Friday wear.
