BEST IN NUTRITION
Best Coffee Shop
Summermoon Coffee Bar is known for their labor of love. They built their coffee roaster from scratch and have hand roasted their coffee over flames and Texas oak ever since. Tip: order the Moon Milk—a blend of seven secret ingredients resulting in sweet, creamy goodness!
Radio Coffee and Beer
Best Smoothie Shop
Who doesn’t love JuiceLand? Their green smoothies, juices, and cleanses are top notch, and their hot drinks are perfect for those days when you’re feeling a little under the weather. The AFM team favorite? A tie between the Wundershowzen and the Julio Verde!
Favorite Brunch Spot
Snooze’s retro interior and delightful twist on breakfast foods are just two of the many reasons to make it your next brunch spot. You can also feel good about that next short stack since 90 percent of their waste is composted and recycled, making them one of the more sustainable restaurants in the Austin-area.
Jack Allen’s Kitchen
Best Healthy Restaurant
True Food Kitchen
This healthy meets trendy restaurant has been packed since it opened its doors in 2016. Located downtown in the Seaholm Power Plant district, the restaurant offers a farm-to-table charm, and their seasonal menu is always worthwhile!
Favorite Local Beer, Wine, or Spirit
Tito’s and soda, Tito’s in a Moscow Mule, Tito’s and cranberry...these are a few of our favorite things! Really though, is there anything it doesn’t go well with? Not only do we love drinking Tito’s, but we also like hanging out with them at events—especially when the Tito’s airstream is involved.
Deep Eddy Vodka
Favorite Grocery Store
H-E-B is one of the largest independent grocery stores in the country, and they hold their own against the Walmarts and Targets of the world. Known for quality, convenience, and reliability, it’s no surprise to see them dominate this category. They also support many community events, including our AFM FITTEST each year!
This self-proclaimed spiritual gangster is a Certified Clinical Nutritionist and a Lifestyle Coach, and she knows all about the fad diets we’ve all tried a time or two. If her resume and credentials don’t motivate you, visit her website and see the testimonials for yourself. We have a real life-changer here, folks!
Best Food Truck
Sisters Reyna and Maritza Vazquez started Veracruz in hopes of offering the freshest, most authentic tacos in town, and they have surpassed all expectations. They use fresh produce brought in by daily grocery runs and make all their corn tortillas and chips from scratch. Check them out in the lot of Radio Coffee and Beer—the runner up for best coffee shop!
