Christmas gift ideas, When Angels Sing

Hey guys, Zach here. How was everyone’s thanksgiving this year?

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.

In other news, Mozart’s was featured on the local news for our light show. Thanks to each and every one of you who comes out each night for our shows. They are so much fun and a great place to take your families. It’s also the perfect place to take a date. You can enjoy one of our specialty hot cocoas and check out the light show.

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.

Do you just love our cakes and cheesecakes? Maybe you just want to send one to a loved one or family? Just in time for the holidays we have made it easier to order cheesecakes, flour cakes and bread loafs. Its very easy to fill out and takes no time at all. Within days you could have any of the delicious cheesecakes we have. I suggest ordering the peanut butter cheesecake, its my favorite.

Take your family, friends or date down for a fun filled night with breath taking view of Lake Austin.  The show will run from 6-12, on the top of every hour. Like I said, it’s so much fun and a great reason to come out in this chilly weather.

Fall back

Hey guys, Zach here with more fun news and info from Mozart’s. Sorry about my recent lack of posts, its been a busy past few weeks.

Thanks to everyone who came by this weekend, it was busy and we loved seeing each and everyone of your faces. Remember, when it is busy on weekend and you dont want to wait in the long line, we have our outdoor bar open all day. They can make all your favorite drinks, as well as provide you with pastries, cheesecake on a stick, and our tasty quiche.

So for the past few weeks I have been researching all i can about the production, distribution and culture of coffee. Soon I will start putting little videos or summaries on what I have learned on here so everyone can learn fun new facts. Here was something informative I watched on the coffee process in Brazil

I will be hopefully debuting an interview with the wonderful Judith Miller next week as well as a bio of one of our best baristas, Minh

He needs to let it cool for a sec

I’ll leave you this week with a funny picture I found involving coffee. Remember to set your clock backs this sun and have a wonderful weekend!!
