Well we just love the Volsted Lounge, which smells like a thrift store and looks like a well-worn bordello. Great swanky-trashy ambiance, and for whatever amazing luck, it isn't too crowded yet. Which is really good for the bathrooms, as the ladies' room only has one stall on a teeny platform with this cool phone-booth-esque door right off the bar. Basically, if like ten more people find out about this place, the bathroom will almost always be in use, so shut up already.
The Brixton is a small, dank dive bar, which we pretty much love and if you don't get it, don't go. It's really too small to visit if you aren't planning to have an awesome time the second you walk in the door, so spare everyone the 'tude. We make best friends every time we go here - they're pictured. Oh, and look! Functional bathrooms with obscene graffiti! Beer, whiskey, people, fun, and working facilities that also entertain. With a Poo Blog shoutout on the cash register! We're good.
We were pretty fond of the Yellow Jacket, a newish hipster bar on Austin's East Side with a full coffee menu, taps of luscious beers, booze, a swell staff and authentic Frito pie. And wow, what great rest rooms! We only popped into the women's room but man is it neat in there. All the wood from the place was sourced from older buildings, and the bathroom is trimmed in sturdy twigs. A stone wolf lurks in the larger stall, but serves as a protector, not a threat. A black-and-white photo of a rugged, American football player is nestled into the branches framing the mirror, to further pump one up.
My only complaint would be that the stall without the wolf statue is a bit narrow. This poo blog contributor is 5"10 and a size 14 (real talk!) and turning completely sideways was the only way to fit through the door. Anyone larger will have to use the roomier stall.
Because the beer served here works so well, this blogger accidentally left her phone in the loo. But someone returned it to the bar and the phone was returned! We love cool new bars with excellent. functional bathrooms decorated with re-purposed wood. Yay, Yellow Jacket!

This Eco-Hip store on North Lamar and 33rd is a rad place to shop for cool and unique gifts. Very friendly staff that will help you pick out a gift for your mom or sister. They also have Dog toys that your doggie will love. If you're shopping and find the need to hit the bathroom then go for it. Bathrooms are very clean and they even have an automatic trash can. How cool is that!?

Hi my name is judy I would like to submit my review of Bennu coffee shop. Off e.19th st and mlk to your poo blog. I am a big fan and would be so honored. I am emailing photos as well. Perhaps you can make them brighter with some image enhancing software? Thank you and many farts to you... here it is -
I walked into bennu at 11pm on a Sunday. The place was packed. The inside and out was full of students on their laptops taking life and homework way too seriously. The smell of over achievers, coffee beans and adderoll was in the air. I love coffee because it helps release the poo. So I down 2 cups of their dark roast with a teaspoon of honey and wait for business as usual. I walk into the pristine bathroom complete with "intelletual grafiti" ok it wasn't graff it was an ornate chalkboard with plenty of colorful chalk to let students and teachers interact in the lou. Let it be known to you college kids and cheapos, they leave a few spare rolls of t.p in the bathroom which is handy if you like to steal toilet paper like me! The bathroom at bennu is 24 hrs of pristine privacy. A classy bathroom with all the essentials. Though the coffee shop it self is kind of lame. The product is good but the crowd is studying constantly giving it the enviornment of a study hall and not of a relaxing cafe. The lights are actually dimmer in the bathroom than they are in the shop! So my tip, talk your mug and a magazine to bennu's crapper. Its really the best seat in the house!
