Yuck-o – This place is wildy popular but I think it's just a bunch of hype. We tried the cinnamon sugar, mother clucker and blackout donuts. The cinnamon sugar was okay. The mother clucker was like a piece of fried bread dropped in a box with some chicken fingers and a side of honey butter. Not very donut-like. The blackout was terrible, like someone mixed a can of cheap frosting with really bad brownie bits and poured it over a donut. Terrible tasting and not worth the mess it made of my beard. These people need to go train at some other donut places and learn how to make good tasting donuts. Then again, they seem to have Austin fooled so they probably don't care.
Citysearch Editorial Review – Joining Austin's specialty coffee brewers and purveyors of locally made goodies is this teeny stand, which slings custom coffees and smoothies with real passion. Sweet-toothed coffee drinkers will love the heavy emphasis on chocolate, be it dark, frozen, blended or and/or hot. This stand also functions as a drive-thru, but not in a huge-volume way. Parking and walking up are good bets when traffic is heavy. Baked goods of the locally made variety are here, as is sweet, friendly, personable and knowledgeable service--no coffee snobbery or goofy-sounding made-up names for sizes. Prices are competitive, with many drinks coming in under $2.
