South by Southwest tourists staying at the South Congress Hotel won’t have to go far starting tomorrow morning to get an energizing breakfast.
The final dining spot in the hotel, which opened last fall, Mañana Coffee and Juice is located in the courtyard with ample bar seating and a large communal table for group meetings. Once it opens tomorrow, it’ll “offer a curated menu of single-origin, direct-trade and local coffee blends from Austin-based roaster Cuvee Coffee” and Kusmi Teas, according to a press release.
“We’re applying that warm Texan hospitality we naturally have in Austin to the specialty coffee shop experience,” general manager Jesse Ryan Hartman said in the release. “We want Mañana to be your neighborhood home base.”
On the menu, diners will find plenty of house-made cold-pressed juices and milks with seasonal fruits and vegetables, as well as a variety of sweets and snack made by Amanda Rockman, the hotel’s executive pastry chef and James Beard Award semifinalist. Rockman’s daily menu will have primarily breakfast and dessert items on it: pastries, croissants, macarons, cookies and tarts.
Mañana Coffee & Juice will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily. You don’t have to be a guest of the hotel to stop in, either: Any visitor to one of the South Congress Hotel’s food and beverage places, including the Lobby Bar, Cafe No Se and Central Standard, can take advantage of free valet parking for up to three hours.
