It looks great, but.......

While this place has a great location and a beautiful remodel, I cannot get past the inept and inconsiderate service that I have received by the staff on several occasions. The staff seem disinterested in serving their customers and I've seen people stand at the register waiting to be served as several staff members just casually pass by without even an acknowledgement or a greeting. On my last visit, the cashier wh... view more

FABULOUS!

The service was indifferent, but the drinks were tasty. Atmosphere was funky and open. Fun (and old) hip-hop playing was a nice change as background noise for my computer work. Hooray for high-speed & free wi-fi! Just watch the time, or the parking nazis will be quick to ticket your car. Parking nearby is free after 5:30pm, tho!

cover charge for two different events

One night I had guests out of town and talked highly of the place. We went to see the band that was playing 7-9 p.m. and paid $6 cover charge.. After the first band finished, second band was going to start at 9:30. Store personel came and told us we have to go out (it was a cold night ) and come back paying another $9 cover charge for the next band...go out and come back in...it is not a good business idea. charge p... view more

lame

Halcyon, before it?s new face-lift, was a cool place to grab a coffee or a drink. The new and ?improved? version lacks any character with the one redeeming quality being the S?mores. The service is pretty bad ? long wait to get a drink when not that busy. The people behind the bar are not friendly and act like you are putting them out by asking for a drink. This place could be a nice location to grab a coffee. N... view more

Good for everything eccept eating.

Halcyon is good for smokes coffee and booze, has a relaxed atmosphere and is good for winding down with some friends. Not so great for pick-ups or dancing (they are a coffee shop). They do make some good coffee drinks but their bar is limited. They just had a face lift, so their sevice is a little slow. I liked the old Halcyon. I would have given the old Halcyon five stars.

awesome atmosphere

This coffee shop is by far one of the best in Austin. There are comfortable couches and wireless internet access. I tried their cappuccino and was blown away! Great choice.

I've tried twice... Maybe I have to be a hippie to get good service???

Ok.. I eat and drink everywhere downtown... but I've tried this place twice and both times the servers / cashiers were rude to me and my girlfriend. I give up. I like the fact it's not a Starbucks, but the servers need to act like they like their jobs!!

Poor Customer service

While I agree with others that the ambience was good here, I and several others have received rude and disrespectful service at this establishment. I was surprised to see so many positive reviews. Maybe we just happened to be waited on by the wrong employee, but I do not plan on returning to this establishment again.

Great Happy Hour (11am-7pm?), creative coffee cocktails, board games, super toasted sandwiches

Turkey and Brie Pannini is absolutely fantastic! Great place to visit with friends or read by yourself; 'background' music is actually that. They have chess, checkers and other board games, as well as plenty of local periodicals available at one's leisure. Over all, I found Halcyon to be a chill place to pass the time.
