Discovered this shop while walking in the SoCo neighborhood on a recent visit to Austin. Wow, the coffee (and hot chocolate) were fantastic! And, it was really cool to see their commitment to the Fair Trade philosophy--wish more coffee shops were. Atmosphere was funky, but very spacious. Music not too loud, service excellent. I had the Aztec Mocha--OMG loved the... More

Relaxing place! Very friendly staff. The cold brew coffee was delicious. The gluten free chocolate cookie was wonderful! They had lots of other treats too! The place was clean, including the bathrooms. They also have plenty of parking! It was a great crowd of all kinds of people! Very austin feeling and overall great place to stop by!

I visited it on a very hot August day to have my soy cappuccino. In most places I have visited it I have got terrible soy foamed coffee. I'm not sure if they only serve good foamed coffee to drink inside and don't pay so much attention to take away, which I would still appreciate to have a good foam.... More

I telework a couple days a week and enjoy working from coffee shops instead of my quiet apartment. The atmosphere at Dominican Joe is really peaceful and the acoustics are such that you wouldn't hear the lively people conversing two tables away from you. Their food and drink selection is excellent, I particularly enjoy their frojoes! Good tastes and good... More

Quiet and nicely air conditioned place to drink coffee. To stay drinks served in china cups (not paper), nice design on top of drink. Drink was tasty – but small size only has one shot (so to add a shot the drink cost $4) – and it was not super hot. Baked goods had limited selection (but I came here... More

Went to Dominican Joe's when I was visiting Austin and got a delicious latte. There were dozens of folks hanging out and taking advantage of the fast wifi. Would definitely recommend if you are looking for a great place to relax for an hour or two and enjoy some coffee.

Fabulous stop for us as we visited all of the shops on Congress Ave. Friendly staff, found a parking spot, restrooms, in addition to the great coffee and snacks.

We go there to study all the time. They have a pleasant atmosphere, good wi fi and a variety of chairs and sofas. The quality of coffee depends highly on the barista, that's the reason they got 4 from me.
