I was introduced to Radio Coffee and Beer here in Austin, Texas by my friend Catelyn who co-owns the online shop The Distillery (which is full of lovely vintage and handmade finds). We met up for coffee/lunch and I was immediately hooked. How could you not love a place that sells coffee and beer with a taco truck parked right outside? Impossible.
When Dave and I were out roaming the city enjoying a gorgeous day a few Saturdays ago (before the cold and rain hit), I suggested we go to Radio for dinner...since we had the dog with us and we wanted to enjoy the nice day. We had a great time hanging out, chatting with a few people around us (mostly people wanting to know about Atka- she makes us friends everywhere we go), and, of course, devouring our tacos. We were starrrrving when we got there and it was a long wait for our food since it was a 70 degree Saturday and everyone was out...but so worth it.
Radio's inside area is nice and quiet during the week, a great place to write/work. They have delicious Stumptown Coffee and this is the first time I've ever gotten a coffee somewhere that made it all pretty with some latte art...happy day. They also have a good beer selection with a lot of local and microbrew beers to choose from.
The taco truck parked outside is Veracruz All Natural and their tacos are sooooooo good! I've only had them twice, and I crave them now. I've had the vegetarian, fish, and la reyna tacos and loved them all. They're also a great price, which is a win if you ask me. Next time I go I'm going to grab an agua fresca...I could use one right about now, actually...
There's pretty much something for everyone here at Radio Coffee and Beer. I can see this being one of my all-time favorite spots in Austin. It's definitely a place I'll take friends and family when they come to visit. I loved staying all evening and watching the whole place light up under the lights strung above and spending the evening with Dave and Atka both.
