One of Austin’s newest coffee shops is giving us an extra reason to visit on weekends (as if we needed another).
Cosmic Coffee + Beer Garden off South Congress Avenue has a new brunch cocktail menu, starting March 3, that will be available only on weekends until 5 p.m.
The bar and cafe, from lauded local music venue owner Paul Oveisi, has specialized in coffee, draft beer and cocktails thus far, but Oveisi wanted a menu of drinks just for the weekend that would also complement the menu items from the rotating selection of food trucks outside Cosmic, including the LeRoy & Lewis barbecue trailer.
"Our space lends itself to weekend lounging, and we wanted to offer a menu that embraces the decadence of sipping on a drink typically associated with brunch," he said in an announcement about the cocktails.
Here’s the new menu of brunch drinks.
Mimosa: sparkling prosecco, fresh orange juice
Bloody Mary: Vodka, horseradish Mary mix, Leroy & Lewis beet BBQ sauce, pickled veggies, smoked brisket jerky
Back in Black: Nitro 512 Pecan Porter with Nitro Cosmic Cold Brew
Michelada to Share: 24-oz Modelo Cerveza with fresh lime, hot sauce, Maggi Jugo and tajin salt. It comes delivered with a mini-cooler to keep all that beer cold.
Plus, launching in mid-March (just in time for South by Southwest) will be a dessert-like brunch option: the Cereal Soft Serve. It’ll consist of ice cream made with Fruit Loop-infused milk and served in a cake cone . Or, for people who don’t like cones, the ice cream can be served instead over Nitro Cosmic Cold Brew.
Cosmic is located at 121 Pickle Rd. For more information, visit cosmiccoffeebeer.com.
