Quack's 43rd Street Bakery

Widely acknowledged as Austin's first coffee bar, Captain Quackenbushes Intergalactic Dessert Company and Espresso Cafe opened on the Drag in 1983. The name is shorter and the location has changed, but the hip, Austin tone remains. Quack's uses only fresh ingredients and takes great pride in serving only coffee roasted right here in Austin. The baked goods are made by hand with no trans-fats and no preservatives. A custom creations outlet called The Cakery is located next door.
