Coffee on the Square

I was getting some quality retail therapy time on the square recently, and it hit me–that afternoon slump that can only mean it’s coffee time!

Luckily, I was right near Cianfrani Coffee Company.

Like stepping back through time to an old Italian coffee joint.
It’s the little details that make a place stand out.



It’s such a quaint, inviting coffeehouse. It has artwork displays, tons of comfy seating, lots of clever coffee cups for gifts, a great selection of deli offerings, pastries, and the heavenly aroma of delicious coffee hanging in the air.

Elektra, so you know your brew is going to be good.

It’s a popular place, so I waited a moment or two to place my order. That gave me time to peruse all the delicious pastries, and the enormous coffee cup selection.


It took some thinking, but I finally decided on a super strong coffee called a Cardiac Arrest. It’s a double shot of espresso with regular coffee. Not for the faint of heart, obviously.

And to round that jumpstart off, I sat down to enjoy some music, and an incredibly delicate blueberry scone.

I mean, who wouldn’t love a scone with their Cardiac Arrest?









Oh, and Cianfrani has a beautiful view of the Williamson County Courthouse. Perfect for people watching.  Great coffee, relaxing atmosphere, gorgeous view of the most beautiful town square in Texas. Definitely a place to frequent.

I may have to go back this week just to try the muffins….
