Here at Mozart’s, we care about more than just our incredible coffee and delicious desserts. We care about you and your memorable experience!
Our place is one of a kind. Something you hardly come by in Austin nowadays. We have a little indoor seating, but mainly an entire deck full of outdoor seating for you to sit with friends/families and escape the hustle and bustle of downtown. There’s something so serene about being by the lake!
Mozart’s is no stranger to the Austin music scene, and neither is Indie Pop Singer/Songwriter, Morgan Nicole. She may have only been performing at Mozart’s for 1 year now, but she has been heavily involved in the music industry since she was just 12 years old.
Mozart’s has unveiled a new line of non-alcoholic craft beverages heading into fall. Our list of new drinks will be: the Ginger-Snap Mocha, the Fig-ured it Out Cold Brew, the Pineapple-Grapefruit Karkade, the Almond Limonata, and the Taste of the Tropics. Each of these drinks was designed with a craft beverage industry trend in mind through a collaborative effort involving both Liber & Co. Essential Cocktail Syrups and Mozart’s Coffee Roasters.
Liber & Co. is a craft syrup creator from right here in Austin. Since its inception in late 2011, Liber & Co. has been owned and operated by three college friends (UT grads)!
As you know, Mozart’s is known for many things, one being that we roast our coffee in house. On any given day that you step foot on our lakeside abode, you will find the original roaster in the roasting room right outside our front doors!
What you probably didn’t know is where we keep all of our green beans. First of all, green beans aren’t the ones you eat for dinner. What we mean by green beans are the coffee beans we have that are in their natural state aka before roasting.
Our Head Roaster, Jack Ranstrom, takes a trip to our off-site storage unit 3 TIMES A WEEK to pick up fresh green beans! That’s a lot of coffee. Jack says, “In storage we keep about three months worth of coffee which is 10,000 Green pounds that I have to personally inventory batch out of and re-load every few weeks.”
McKenna Michels has quite the story. You can find her playing music almost every weekend at Mozart’s, but her journey to get there was more a leap of faith. Here is what McKenna has to say about facing her fears and doing something she has never done before.
“I have two special experiences at Mozart’s. The first is when I met Stacey (one of the owners of Mozart’s Coffee Roasters). I am a musician and had never performed. I had about 3 songs written and wanted to start doing something with them. I had seen music at Mozart’s before and knew it was similar to my sound. So the Saturday before Mother’s Day 2019 I went in and asked how I could play, which was a major leap of faith for me. Stacey listened to my nervous pitch and took the chance to listen to my music. She responded “how about tomorrow?”. For me, this moment was special because it was a major milestone for me to gain the confidence to perform. Mozart’s took a chance on me from day one and gave me the chance to start following my dreams.“
Espresso is a certain type of coffee drink that is pulled from an espresso machine. It is a full-flavored , concentrated form of coffee that is made by forcing pressurized hot water through very finely ground coffee beans.
At Mozart’s, we have two espresso blends that we trade out often. Our signature espresso blend is the Mozart’s D’oro and the other is called WiseGuy Espresso.
Espresso D’oro has been our golden espresso since 1999. This espresso has a caramel, chocolate body and citrus fruit acidity.
If you’ve been keeping up with the Mozart’s stories, you will notice a trend: people love Mozart’s and they all have a unique reason for coming back.
Summer Lewis tagged us in her story on Instagram a couple times over the past few weeks, so we decided to reach out and learn more about what keeps her coming back time and time again. (Quick plug — be sure to mention us on your social media or reach out to us via DM so we can share your stories, too!)
We asked Summer a few easy questions so that we can all get to know her a little better. Check out the interview below!
Saturday through Wednesday, you can guarantee that on any given morning you will walk in the front doors of Mozart’s and see the bright, shining smile of Mary Blalock.
Mary has been with Mozart’s for 5 years now! WOW! After studying Arabic in college and working at Mozart’s, she decided to continue her career here and grow in the coffee world. Mary has now worked her way up to the title of Morning Manager.
Here are some of Mary’s favorite things to eat/drink at Mozart’s:
Favorite drink? Cold brew with Oat Milk or a Coconut Almond Iced Latte with Coconut Milk
Favorite Breakfast Item? “Hands down the Mozart’s Coffee Cake”
Favorite Dessert? The Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie
More fun facts? Of course! Mary has a free-roam bunny rabbit named Bernie!
Mary said she has loved Mozart’s since the beginning. Her favorite things include that we roast our own beans and that she’s gotten to know the morning regulars by name. Her favorite part about being a morning manager is that she gets to see the people that come in every single day. She’s built relationships with these customers that have even led to great friendships!
Apart from the amazing customers, Mary loves the old school ambience that Mozart’s has to offer. She says “It’s a different style coffee shop that any of the other shops around town. It’s very unique!”.
