Best Places in Austin for Meetings

As more and more of us are working outside of the office, or juggling consulting and freelance jobs, the need to have a solid meeting place takes on more importance.

If you are lucky, you may belong to one of Austin’s many shared workspaces like WeWork, Vuka or the highly anticipated Industrious, coming this fall. But if that’s not in your budget, or you want another option, here are a few of my favorite locales for a work tête-à-tête.

Blanton Museum of Art Café

200 E Martin Luther King Jr Blvd, 78701

This is a relaxing spot adjacent to the museum that offers sandwiches, salads and coffees. Dare yourself not to go play hooky after your meeting and seek serenity in the Blanton’s impressive collections.

Sa-Ten Coffee & Tea at Canopy

916 Springdale Rd. 78702

When meeting on the East side, Sa-Ten is a good spot. Always tranquil and offering Japanese inspired foods as well as coffee and teas, Sa-Ten is located at Canopy, a creative community of artist studios, art galleries and office spaces.

Mozart’s Coffee Roasters

3826 Lake Austin Blvd. 78703

The appeal at Mozart’s is its location on the water overlooking Lake Austin. There’s a large deck and it’s usually peaceful unlike its neighbor restaurants Hula Hut and Abel’s that draw in the rambunctious crowds.

Hotel San Jose

1316 S. Congress Ave. 78704

I hesitate mentioning this place as I feel it is one of Austin’s best-kept secrets, but this is an oasis from the crowds of South Congress. Set in a revamped 1930’s motor lodge, the Lounge is tucked away in a leafy courtyard offering light snacks, and a well-researched beer and wine menu. If you go early enough in the day, they open at noon, its peaceful, as long as there are no families or tipsy guests playing in the nearby pool.

Casa de Luz

1701 Tooney Rd. 78704

Hidden away down a tree-lined walkway, this old Austin healthy eating spot specializes in macrobiotic foods in a Zen-like setting with ample light and space.
