Heights hipsters flock to the shopping-center-set Antidote Coffee House for its caffeine-laden offerings and laid-back, at-home vibe. The loft-like interior-with its rubbed concrete floors, exposed brick walls and open vent-work-is filled with an array of eclectic furniture and artwork produced by local artisans.

This Austin-chic coffee shop brews excellent coffee with multiple roasts to choose from. Be sure and try their cajeta latte, or ask one of the friendly baristas for a suggestion. Not in the mood for coffee? Try their freshly brewed tea or something from their beer and wine selection. Pair your beverage with a pistachio cupcake, mozzarella sandwich, mushroom quiche, or a cheese plate.

There's free wi-fi and plenty of plug-ins, but you know what they say about all work and no play--head there for happy hour Monday through Friday (4 to 7 p.m.) and enjoy $1 double espresso. Bring a book and catch up some reading on their charming, yet sizable outside patio.
