VOTED Austins #1 Coffeehouse and Live Music Cocktail Bar...by those that matter! From "Best of Austin" write-up in the Austin American Statesman: "Plenty of surface parking on site. Some of the music is live. Decaf, teas, chai. [Lunch!] Some quiet spots in this big space. We’ve always liked owner Thomas Gohring and his ambitions to create a singular community around coffee, booze, entertainment and, yes, martial arts. Gohring brings to the game a flair for showmanship, an element almost absent from any other coffee shop in town. He has expanded the size of his original location on Airport Boulevard while retracting his attempts to go global. A small stage, backed by his signature graphics, takes pride of place, but the long coffee bar attests to the original impulse to serve rigorously prepared espresso drinks along with food, beer and wine. As the ACC Highland project, as well as the Linc and other area redevelopments fire up, expect Kick Butt to thrive and retain its inimitable character. *The place opens and closes at odd times; we rounded up or down."
