About Quack's

Quack's 43rd St. Bakery is the current incarnation of Captain Quackenbushes Intergalactic Dessert Company and Espresso Cafe which had, at one point, been located on " The Drag" in Austin, Texas. We are a full service espresso cafe and from scratch bakery. We continue to provide late night study aids and that early morning caffeine fix our customers crave and hope to do so for for another 30 years!  We offer a wide range of desserts that are all made right here in our Hyde Park location. We continue to expand weekly and are now offering locally made Deli items from Fricano's Deli! Let everyone know to .."Meet me at Quacks".


Quack’s was the first coffeehouse in Austin. We originally served espresso coffee drinks only, a less than subtle attempt to introduce our customers to espresso based drinks. We’ve long ago relented and now offer drip brewed coffee and more recently French-pressed coffee in addition to our espresso line. The coffee beans that we use are never frozen. They’re freshly roasted here in Austin, Texas, not Italy, Seattle or even Houston. We serve our coffee in ceramic, glass, or paper cups. Fairly traded organic coffees are also available. Our prices are moderate.

We invite you to come visit Quack’s. There’s always something new and we’re always evolving!
