Café Pacha

4618 Burnet Rd., Austin, TX - (512) 420-8758
Posted By Meg Chrisler on 2/3/2006 10:29:00 PM
In addition to always being a snooty place (and their occasional fixed price dinners are $28 with a high gratuity added on), their coffee has become absolute swill.

The atmosphere used to be charming and welcoming, and you could get decent food with a latte, and even bring your dog to the back porch. I am upset by how upscale they’ve become, and it’s irritating to see places like this try to be hip and full of attitude. But worst of all, the $3 cappuccino I recently bought was so bad I dumped it after three sips.

I’d gone there daily for years, yet I was never been treated as a “regular”, so I’m done with it. I've always felt the staff looked down on the clientele, and if the coffee is unsalvageable then what's the point? Pacha tries very hard to be hipper than thou, and I left that attitude behind a long time ago when I moved away from NYC. Fortunately there are other great neighborhood places I can walk to. So long, Pacha!

As the morning sun streams in the window, this table at Cafe Pacha is an ideal place to have a quite conversation or to meditate solo over coffee.
