The London Summer Olympic Games are officially in full-swing and some fans in Austin welcomed the games with a very special watch party.

The Full English Cafe opened its doors to British ex-pats and Americans alike.

Mabel Bachini and her mother run the South Austin restaurant. She says having her home country host the Olympics is a treat—one that she wanted to share with the whole community.

"It's more exciting than I thought it would be,” Bachini said. “To feel like you're proud of your country and to show your country off to the rest of the world is a wonderful thing."

The Summer Games wrap up August 12.
