Opening Soon
7-Days a Week
Books (and more books) all day.
First Light is a lovingly operated, independent bookshop and café in Austin, Texas, set to open in spring 2023. We’re opening First Light because we love great stories and bright ideas, and how both help to weave the fabric of a community. Tucked in the historic Hyde Park neighborhood in an old post office, we’ll be open seven days a week. See you there.
A book + a beverage = the good life.
The best thinking often happens around the table. Our cafe serves coffee all day, wine and beer until closing time, and a menu crafted to fuel camaraderie and the efforts of the mind and spirit.
