Austin Java will close its long-standing location at 1608 Barton Springs Road, Austin, on July 1. A new location will open at 5405 Manchaca Road, Austin, in early September.

The company, which first opened in 1995, said in a letter posted to its Facebook page that the closure was due to rapidly increasing property taxes in Austin and an aversion to raising menu prices to cover the costs.

The original Austin Java location, at 1206 Parkway, Austin, closed in November. New locations are underway at the MetCenter in South Austin and in San Marcos.
