Dominican Joe is located in the heart of Austin at the corner of
South Congress and Riverside, next to Freebirds Burrito and Wells Fargo Bank. With ample seating and
parking, along with free wireless and, of course, a great menu, we offer a great atmosphere for both
individuals and groups for any occasion.
We're not, however, just another Austin coffee house - we're a locally owned business that exists
to make a difference in the world. Through our partnership with
Austin-based non-profit organization committed to educational and economic development in the Dominican
Republic, your purchases make a tangible difference to people in that country. You can
learn more about our company and mission at the Our Story and Our Coffee links above.
ANNOUNCEMENT: DOMINICAN JOE CLOSING ON APRIL 29
After 10 wonderful years on South Congress, Dominican Joe is going to become a part of the Bennu family, and will soon become a 24-hour Bennu Coffee Lounge! We have enjoyed building this space for our amazing customers and bringing you a little slice of the Dominican Republic as we support Makarios' educational programs in the DR. But as we look forward at our many other commitments, we knew it was time to find someone else to lead this shop.
We began to seek out like-minded owners with a similar vision and philosophy to be the new stewards of this space. In Bennu, we found the perfect match! Dominican Joe's last day will be April 29th, and then Bennu will open shortly after in early May. There will be some exciting updates and changes, but some of the most important things won't change: our staff, our coffee, and our cause. Bennu will continue to support the work of Makarios by bringing you the same delicious impact coffee.
Thank you to all our loyal customers over the years, and we hope to see you at the new Bennu Coffee Lounge in the future!
