Nestled along South First Street is the newest member of Austin's booming coffee scene. Seventh Flag Coffee resides in a completely refurbished house and serves a selection of specialty coffee and pastries. After only being opened a few short months, it has already graced the pages of The New York Times.

The minimalist design,wood lined ceilings paired with clean white walls, creates a distraction-free zone, great for studying or catching up on email. Tables of different sizes dot the small house creating ample space for patrons. The highlight of the interior, besides the impressive machines behind the coffee bar, is the flag adorned with seven stars hanging above the stone fireplace.

Besides the typical coffee shop menu staples, Seventh Flag shakes it up by offering the highly sought after Black and Blue Cuvee Coffee on tap. This cold-brew is nitrogenated then kegged and can be sipped like beer. Another unique offering is their espresso presentation. Served next to the espresso is a shot of Topo Chico mineral water and a shot of Tibetan Tiger Tea. These standout items set Seventh Flag apart from the rest.
