Back To School

Hey everyone, Zach here with more news and information from Mozart’s. Sorry about late post everyone, my computer wasn’t feeling this well this weekend. Alright let’s get into some fun news from Mozart’s.

Well everyone, it’s that time of year again. Summer is ending and it’s time to get back to school. Just in time for UT starting up we have debuted a new shake called the Longhorn Shake, it has caramel and butterscotch chips with your choice of vanilla or chocolate ice cream. It’s delicious and a good way to show your school pride. If you are in the mood for something with a little more pep in it you can add a shot of espresso to it. It’s perfect for those late night study sessions.

Looking for a place to have a study session this year? You can come down and study with your friends by lake. Maybe you are looking  for somewhere to meet with your various clubs? You can rent out our annex on this very site. There is even a virtual tour if you want to check it out. It’s a lovely room with a beautiful view of Lake Austin and perfect for those warm nights until the winter hits.

Now to continue our new tradition of employee bios here is Reagan Thomas!!

Reagan moved down here the same time as his brother Cameron and is one of our awesome supervisors. He is very nice guy and is always up for great conversation. He is an avid fan of history, finding new music and reading. Reagan and Cameron, are learning how to roast coffee and are always learning new things about coffee.
