Delicious diner in a cool café

It may lop like a hip crowded coffee place, but if you walk to the back you will find a full bar with an excellent drinks choice. The wild rice pilaf was simply perfect, as was the prosecco, served in beautifully-carved champagne glasses. Friday night and the atmosphere was relaxed, young and just... read more

I did not like the confusion of this place. I ordered a pastry from one person, then you have to order your beverage from another person, then I wanted to order a breakfast entree and that was from yet another person. Three different people for one order! Customers waiting for their orders are standing all over and people are bumping... More

Love the coffee,the assortment of pastry and the way they have of catering to your every need. Sometimes they have vegan pastry that are amazingly flavorful, which is marvelous for me since I am allergic to milk. They are always able to make me a great breakfast and I have never gotten sick, that is difficult to do. The atmosphere... More

In many ways, this place feels like the polar opposite of Starbucks. It projects an eclectic feel compared to Starbucks' more standardized approach. While both serve excellent coffee, the pastries at Lux are in a completely different league -- they all look home made, and the ones we tried were out-of-this-world delicious.

Coffee and pastry are ok, but I don't like to start my day with confusion and funky. There are those who will like the fraternity house atmosphere. I'm a little out of it

This place is very different from what I am used to going to. That have very interesting decorations and furniture around the place. I got my food and drink and was able to eat it in 10 minutes and be out. Keep in mind there was at least 10 people in front of me and every employee that I saw... More

Cute coffee house that provides serious coffee and food but doesn't take itself too seriously. Perfect place for working on the laptop (free wifi) or catching up with friends. Pastries are classic American style with generous portions (big crumbly scones, overloaded muffins).

The coffee and espresso beverages are excellent. The cocktails at the bar are high quality handcrafted with care. The pastries are delicious, especially the savory scones and muffins. Downside, it's always jam packed and the line for coffee is really long in the mornings.

Lux is just awesome. This place is always busy - so you know its good. If you're coming with more than 2 people you'll likely have a bit of trouble sitting together initially. You can't go wrong with the menu. My personal favorite --> just get their black coffee and ask them to add house whip to it. Delicious and... More

I stopped by here for a quick coffee to go and was surprised when I walked through the door. When you first walk in, finding the counter can be a bit tricky. I think I told my order to 3 people before I found the right one and was able to pay. As I was waiting for my order, I... More
