Christmas Light Show

Hey everyone, Zach here.  As you can see with the picture below we are hard at work getting the light show ready for all of you. It’s a lot of fun and a perfect way to kick off the holidays. 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.

Light Show Demo

Plus if you make it down to our first show at 6 we will be offering our Light Show special.  If you get one of our slices of Chocolate Fantasy cakes you get a free scoop of Ice Cream with it. It’s a great deal and perfect with one of our signature mocha specials.

Here is a a preview for any who have not seen our shows in past.


If you are looking for a practical gift for friends and family, purchase any of our mugs and get a free drink with it. It’s a great deal, get yourself a treat and get a gift for a friend. rsz_tumblers

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

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.
