Couture shoot at Hot Mama’s coffee shop in East Austin last week. Every so often, a camera crew will show up here to utilize the courtyard for a modelling shoot. Such was the case on a recent morning when a team of attendees were all hovering about the woman in the picture.
Hot Mama’s has been through some ownership changes over the years but has really settled into itself of late. They have a friendly crew of baristas, Ararat Cafe’s foods being served out of the kitchen, and one of the biggest, plushest sofas in town for lounging.
First Saturday of each month the cafe throws an Ararat party where they bring in belly dancers, serve a special dish from the legendary Ararat menu and set up the courtyard as an impromptu food party venue. It’s byob as an added bonus.
