Bennu Coffee, a staple on the East Side, is a cozy little shop featuring crafted caffeinated beverages and food from local favorites. 

Radio Coffee and Beer popped up on Manchaca Road near the Ben White intersection only a few months ago, but the coffee shop has already gained a cult-like following.

Seventh Flag Coffee resides in a completely refurbished house on South First Street and serves a selection of specialty coffee and pastries.

Located in the heart of East Austin, you can't miss this charming coffee house on E. Cesar Chavez set in a historic home. The restaurant boasts an inviting exterior with outdoor seating, colorful umbrellas and landscaping, and twinkly lights. Plus, you won't miss the crowds as you pass by on a Saturday morning.

Cenote is more than another coffee shop - they offer a large menu of classic breakfast items, salads, and sandwiches throughout the day, along with a wide selection of beer and wine.

Patrons line up inside to place their orders, and then you can find your seat indoors or out. We started our meal with a delicious (and pretty) latte that went down a little too quickly! They certainly take their coffee seriously, using a French Press and rotating selection of coffees. Plus, their iced coffee is brewed for 24 hours and triple filtered.

Never too warm to start your day with a creamy latte

For breakfast, we sampled the breakfast sandwich, with your choice of bacon, chorizo, turkey or avocado served with egg and cheese on ciabatta bread. Although a relatively standard offering, you can't help but notice how fresh and vibrant the ingredients look.

We also chose the Classic Breakfast - two eggs any style with bacon, potatoes and a house-made biscuit that I couldn't resist. The over-easy eggs were cooked to perfection and the biscuit was everything I had hoped for.

The lunch menu is pretty extensive as well, offering traditional sandwiches along with choices like the Cuban or even Bahn Mi.

We hadn't planned on visiting Cenote on this particular day, but I'm so glad we stumbled upon this not-so-secret spot on the East side. I would definitely return for another fresh and hearty breakfast or lunch.
