New Orleans-bred Austinites Ryan and Jennifer Marks know the meaning of hospitality, and they bring this principle to life in the popular Cherrywood Coffeehouse. Folks from all walks of life hang out at all hours inside the large, cement-floored interior, sipping caffeinated beverages and pouring over open laptops. The food is all hearty and satisfying, from breakfast tacos to huge burgers and sandwiches. (The New Orleans shows a little with the cafish poboys and seafood platters available during lunch and dinner.) Cherrywood's open layout and large patio also makes it a great gathering spot for live music, yoga classes, gallery exhibits and comedy open mics.
Comedy open mic is every Tuesday night from 10 p.m. - 12 a.m.
Hatha yoga classes are taught every Monday - Saturday at 8 a.m.
Weekend brunch happens every Saturday - Sunday from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m., featuring special N'Awlins dishes like shrimp n' grits and crawfish benedict.
