Halcyon: adj. Idyllic, Happy. We are open daily from 7a-2a with couches in the lounge area, plenty of cafe seating, a front patio overlooking the warehouse district, lots of plugs and free wifi. We offer a full bar, an exceptional coffee and espresso program and made to order comfort foods (sandwiches/salads/flat breads/shareable snacks/desserts) in a restored 19th century warehouse on 4th Street in Downtown Austin.
