Don't let Spider House's second roll as a concert hall fool you; this coffee shop is a drink paradise. From cocktails to tea to great coffee, this place hits the spot. Delicious lattes can also be accompanied with rice milk. The eclectic, loud ambiance is the perfect place to meet friends.

Foursquare Tips

  • Don't wait for table service, order inside and then come outside. Table service is horrible.
  • Order inside, sit outside
  • I was disappointed by the lack of spiders
  • Dog-friendly. I ostensibly come here to study with the pooches, but really, it turns into drinking with the pooches.
  • Go to Spider House, order a carafe of sangria and stay a while.
  • Get the coco mocha. Now!!!
  • This place is legendary! Set in an amazing old house! Delicious cocktails too :) Found it here on Supper: http://supper.mx/places/spider-house-cafe-austin/
  • A default go-to mainstay in the UT/drag area. Always an interesting crowd of caffeinated/alcohol-ated folks of various stripes. Spot me drinking the locally-brewed Kombucha.
  • I actually just go here to laugh at the angsty hipsters and faux intellectuals that seem to populate this place. The service is terrible and everything is overpriced.
  • Sick of studying at home? Bring your computer here and do your work on the outdoor patio while enjoying a cocktail or beer. They have several outlets outside so your computer will stay charged!
  • Service fucking blows. You have to track the servers down for everything because they're busy talking to each other. Girl servers are good. Stocky bearded one sucks. Xoxo
  • Disguise myself as an Austin hipster. Fail miserably.
  • If you want something you better tell your waitress everything the first time-cause she'll never come back.
  • Veggie frito pie = <3
  • If you want a drink and dont feel like partying on 6th street, come to Spider House. An Austin original, now under second owners, provides full service bar and restraunt with the local and laid back
  • Order the BLTA. It's unreal
  • SIT UNDER THE GAZEBO THING OUTSIDE
  • Go to Spider House and order a Guinness with a shot of espresso in it, and a Frito Pie. Breakfast of champions.
  • local beers on tap, yo.
  • If you like warm, sugary cocktails and don't mind ridiculous puns, the Hot Chodka is for you.
