HULA HUT RESTAURANT: The Hula Hut is a beloved Austin landmark restaurant with a “fun” vibe.

Enjoy popular dishes such as Coconut Fried Shrimp, Tubular Tacos, and Mango-Poblano Chile Quesadillas. Their famous margaritas are made with hand squeezed lime juice and their “Hu La La” specialty drink is served aquarium style with fresh tropical juices.
MOZART'S COFFEE ROASTERS: Mozart's Coffee Roasters and Bakery opened in 1993 and features fine gourmet coffees, specialty drinks, gelatos, and home-made artisan desserts. A consistent “Best of” for people-watching and picture-taking. The lakeside location is a Texas favorite as one of Austin's most romantic spots and is also located on Lake Austin Blvd, right down from the Hula Hut.
