A Treat Turned Tradition

Cinnamon Rolls and Coffee is a weekly tradition for local Austinite, Genevieve Watson. 

We reached out to Genevieve on Instagram after noticing not only her routine visits to Mozart’s, but also her beautiful post about cinnamon rolls on her instagram page, @genevievewatsonn. If you follow us, you may have even seen her before! 

“My love for Mozarts and their cinnamon rolls started in college” says Genevieve. “I can’t tell you how many fall morning I’ve spent studying or catching up with a friend on the patio.“

A year and a half ago, the frequent visits as 1 turned into a small crew visiting every Sunday when her and her boyfriend, Jay, adopter their adorable puppy, Hutch. Cinnamon rolls Sunday’s became a regular thing! 

Here’s how Genevieve says their typical Sunday goes:

  • We wake up early to beat the heat and head to Zilker Park to play a serious game of fetch 
  • After we’ve played to our hearts content we head out, taking the scenic route to Mozart’s Coffee Roasters
  • We order our cinnamon sugar cinnamon rolls and iced mochas before settling into a shady spot on the patio
  • We spend an hour or so talking about what our new week is going to look like and how we are going to prepare. It’s become an important part of us an our week
  • Then back home for a Sunday nap with the whole gang! 

“I’ll keep this Sunday ritual going as long as I’m in Austin! It’s so important to support the local  businesses that you love so much because we are loosing iconic Austin spots left and right!” 

Thank you, Genevieve, for sharing your routine and why you love Mozart’s. If you’re around this Sunday, keep an eye out for this lovely trio and be sure to say hi!

Espresso Your Self

What is Espresso?

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.

WiseGuy Espresso is a light roast Scandinavia style that will give you a clean, bright, and sweet taste.

There are many ways to drink Espresso! It is naturally pulled in shots. Originally, it was served alone as a 1oz. espresso shot. Most prefer a double shot which is also called ‘Doppio’. Either way, espresso is meant to be sipped slowly so you can enjoy it’s full, rich flavor.

If you aren’t quite ready for straight espresso, there are many other popular espresso drinks such as:

  • Cappuccino – espresso / frothed milk
  • Latte – espresso / milk
  • Americano – espresso / water

Many of the above drinks can come hot, iced, with syrup, with whipped-cream, and more.

If you haven’t tried espresso before, give it a shot (pun intended)! It may be that extra boost of energy you are looking for.

Let’s Talk About Cupcakes…

In the late nineteenth century, cupcakes received their name because their ingredients were measured by the cup full! They were originally baked in teacups — hence the name Cup Cakes. Of course, this was before the multi-cup pan was invented.

Cupcakes are one of the many things that our bakers love baking at Mozart’s. There’s so many different flavors and additions! Right now they are whipping up vanilla, lavender, oreo, and raspberry — but the fun doesn’t stop there. There’s new for every season!

Sarah, one of our wonderful bakers, says our original white cake recipe involves cooking some of the ingredients on the stove along with two mixers. “It’s much more involved than other cake recipes but so worth it. It’s the best white cake recipe I’ve seen!” – Sarah Hamilton

Check out these beauties below! Blended, mixed, baked, and topped beautifully to perfection.
