Sleek and chic Patika, located on booming South Lamar is light, bright, and friendly, and serves a top-notch cup o' joe.
Located in the redesigned former residence of Gold Creations and Liberty Tax, those of the sparkly signs and dancing Statues of Liberty, Patika lends good taste to a rapidly transforming section of the street formerly known as 'a little seedy', and perfectly funky. Let's just say it's now more uptown funk. The hip new-ish neighborhood coffeeshop and more fits in nicely and nicely.
The perfect satellite office, neighborhood hangout, or light breakfast or lunch spot, Patika offers many features that help it stand out in a jam-packed crowd of independent Austin coffee shops. Formerly operating a popular mobile coffee truck downtown since 2010, their growing reputation for offering a primo cup of caffeine lead to the opening of this airy and hip brick and mortar. It's contemporary interior offers ample natural light (hello, Instagrammers), a peaceful ambiance, and several options for seating including tables, counter seating that looks out on busy SoLa, a cozy little corner for a sip and a visit, and a patio outback perfect for soaking up the sun, or gathering with friends over an evening glass of wine and nibbles.
Patika has recently expanded its menu beyond delicious house-made morning pastries to include all day snacks and upscale bar bites. Beverages range from top-quality coffee drinks to fine craft beers and wines,
As with any trendy business in town, parking can be an issue for this popular spot, Patika offers 10 dedicated parking spots, and 8 spots shared with an adjacent business. As is the nature of the business, many folks come and go quickly, and a quick circle of the block usually is enough time for an opening. Open at 7am, you'll see a steady stream of regulars making this their ritual stop on the morning commute. Learn more about one of my favorite new java spots on their website, Patika, South Lamar .
