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.

Once again a big thank you to all who have come to our light show this past week. I love seeing everyone’s faces when they light up when the show starts. To all who haven’t made it out yet, you are missing out. I know, I know, it’s super chilly out but the view of the lake combined with lights at end of night is just breathtaking. So get bundled up,grab your friends, enjoy one of our signature hot cocoas(my favorite is after dinner mint) and enjoy the show. Here are some pictures to give you a taste of how great the show is, including one of yours truly.

Outdoor bar, new drinks and more bios!

Hey hey everyone, Zach here.  Wow, what a crazy weekend, thank you all so much for continuing to come each and every weekend and making our days! Remember, if there is a giant line you can always come to our outdoor bar. We can make you any espresso drink as well as smoothies, chai lattes and shakes. If you are looking for something less extravagant you can also get your bottomless coffee and iced tea as well.

Good news everyone, just in time for fall we have gotten in our delicious apple cider. Its perfect for those fall nights on the lake and goes great with some caramel in it! We have also recently gotten in from Teo, the scrumptious Pumpkin Pie gelato. I had the pleasure of trying some yesterday and fell in love with it.

We decided for the bios this week to highlight Andra Nickerson and Alex Swenson

 

Andra Olympia

Andra Nickerson
This is Andra. Andra is one our many lovely morning baristas. She is always up bright and early to make people’s mornings with her great service and her delicious lattes. Andra moved down from Olympia, Washington in October of 2012 and will be attending UT in spring to study nutrition. She has been a barista for 6 years and loves making coffee. On her days off she likes hiking, swimming, biking and going to shows. Her favorite drink to get is a tie between a dirty chai or a hazelnut cinnamon mocha. “I’m a cat loving, thrift shopping vegan”-Andra

 

Rock Star

Alex Swenson
Hey everyone, this is Alex! Alex is always in a good mood and will always do what it takes to make your day. He moved down here with me in March and has been working hard to put smiles on your faces ever since. Back in Washington he has 2 wonderful sisters, Rose and Sarah and his talented father, Paul. In his spare time he likes to play guitar and write music. Whether it be alone or with others, he loves playing music. He is also a former culinary student and he loves baking food. He is currently playing in a band called Team 2nd Place, you can check them out at team2ndplace.bandcamp.com. If you ever wanna talk about music, he is your guy. Just look for the super tall guy with a red baseball cap! I am proud to say he is my best friend and a wonderful employee. Try one of his delicious Mochas!

Next week, I will continue our bios with some of the lovely tutors that have been coming to Mozart’s for years as well as a bio of another one of our lovely morning baristas, Jenna!!

Before I go I would like to introduce you to our new unofficial mascot, Callie. She is currently wearing one of our Mozart’s bandannas which you can buy at Mozart’s.

Callie!!
