SXSW is here!!!

Hey everyone, its that time of year again. SXSW is upon us!!

First off, I would like to welcome everyone who is visiting from all over. Come on down to Mozart’s, sit back, relax and enjoy one of our signature mocha specials. There are many wonderful options for it, my personal favorite is the butterscotch special. We also have our SXSW blend for sale so you can bring home a little piece of Mozart’s to your friends or family.

I am please to announce, starting this year we will have our very own unofficial SXSW showcases. They will be starting Monday and continuing till next Sunday.  I am so very excited to be putting all of this together and would love to see each and everyone of you. There is no cover for any of our shows but we encourage you all to support the artists and drink lots of coffee. Remember, there is no wristbands, press badges or tickets required here. Heck, you dont even have to wait in a super long line.

Man, it sure got cold today. Well have no fear, we have our long sleeve shirts in now. They come in an assortment of colors and are perfect for those chilly nights that are sure to come up. You can find those in our Merch section which is to the left when you walk in.

Looking for a gift for friend, family or loved one? We have plenty of great options here at Mozart’s! For the college students, we have toddy brewers and Aero press coffee makers so they can make coffee in their own dorm. You can even buy any of the flavor syrups we have to make your coffees at home extra tasty.


For the parents we have our Mozart’s travel mugs and ceramic mugs. We also have our shirts, hoodies, long sleeve shirts and hats. The beanies work wonders in this cold weather. Remember if you can’t decide on a gift we also have our gift cards. They could make a great gift for your friends or as a stocking stuffer. We are running a deal where you purchase a $50 gift card you get a free $5 card and if you get a $20 card you get a free $20 card. It’s a great deal and you get a little treat for yourself.


For your kids we are have Santa hats and lighted Santa hats for sale. We also are featuring a lovely Christmas book “When Angels Sing” by Turk Pipkin a local Austin author. It’s a great read and would make a great holiday gift. If you would like a copy just ask any of our cashiers and they will help you.
