There are a few good guitar shops in Austin, but South Austin Music is a pleasantly unpretentious spot where you don’t feel too weird picking up an instrument and the staff don’t hover too much. The aging building and over-stuffed isles give the store a busy charm and it’s easy to get lost playing their wide selection of guitars and basses. Prices aren’t amazing, but there are good deals to be had.

A recent addition on the far edge of Austin's over-gentrified East Side, this converted gas station offers tasty small eats and a reasonable drink menu (though a bit light on taps), but anything it lacks in selection it makes up for in good vibes and a nicely mixed clientele. A bit on the pricey side, but they have an exceedingly pleasant outdoor seating area and a 'convenience store' of refrigerated products and odds & ends.

There's plenty of debate in Austin about the best breakfast tacos, and you can get them almost literally anywhere, but I personally love Taco Deli's fresh, local, high-quality ingredients and unfussy style. You can make cases for more authenticity, but TD's hard to beat for convenient, consistent, delicious tacos. My pick is the Migas Royal plate (local-tip: beat the crowds by calling in your order on the way and skipping the line)

Wheather starting or ending your day, this near East coffee shop / taproom has some of the best of whatever you're after. One of the first establishments to brave a then-emerging neighborhood, it's now surrounded by walkable shops and restaurants. A great porch for chilling and a pretty good spot to plug in a laptop and get some work done.
