My husband I just got back from a short trip to Phoenix where we stayed at the funky Clarendon Hotel. We ran across Lux during our introductory walk of its neighborhood and then ate breakfast there twice. Latte and Americano (refillable for a buck), potato spinach quiche, almond croissants, and the best yogurt with maple syrup, mixed berries and their... More

Ask the people that know, that REALLY know what good coffee is, where is their favorite spot? They will all tell you.....Lux. I love to take my daughter for an old fashioned soda in a bottle while I grab a cup for there and a pound to go! Staff is friendly and efficient.

Get a latte or a beer. Great atmosphere to do some work or some sitting. Wish I would have discovered sooner. Latte art. Friendly staff.

My wife and I were visiting Phoenix for the weekend and decided on going to Lux since they had excellent reviews on Yelp. Don't be fooled by the boring exterior. This place is pretty cool and eclectic on the inside. There were plenty of Hipsters, families, and college students here on a Sunday morning so just about anyone would fit... More

Went here for desert and really enjoyed it! Limited and somewhat confusing seating but that just adds to the experience. Very good coffee and deserts. Would love to come back for breakfast!

This is one of my favorite places to work, read or catch up with friends. It's a funky, unique place, with lots of mismatched tables, chairs and sofas. The coffee is good and there is a nice kitchen with pastries, lunch and dinner options. They even have a bar if you are working into the evening. There are at least... More

Have been going to Lux every Sunday to meet up with some good friends and have coffee. I along with my friends find your coffee to be some of the most bitter and strong coffee I have ever had and not in a good way. I can't believe people find your coffee so great. I have never tried your other... More

Indeed the best espresso in town and many places i travel too.... The people at lux take coffee very seriously, almost to a science, looking at the applied,focused and meticulous moves of the barista. The result is an amazing espresso, thick and oily, an explosion of coffee flavors and zero bitterness.... For those who enjoy, lux looks and feel almost... More

Hidden a little behind Pane Bianco on Central. Never tried the food so i can't comment on that but their coffee, Oh My! Had some great coffee's but this is up there with the best. Sensational and testifies to the fact that there is much better than Starbucks despite them being everywhere. Definately worth a look if you are in... More

Super cool place, out of place with our 4 year old but they made a special ghiradelli iced hot chocolate for him. Customized my drink from the menu with caramel and almond milk for me and my husband had an awesome mocha. Equal to Starbucks pricing, so worth it! Unmarked doors beside pane bianco makes you think you hit the... More
