I'm the kind of person who loves cafes for the work mojo, as well as the fact that I'm a coffee lover. The coffee here is great, but the only flavoured ones I've had are the mochas and the iced Mayan. The snacks are pretty decent, though a bit pricy, but the price is expected for its location right in... More

Excellent coffee. Plenty of space, good service, noisy and uncomfortable seating. The ambiance is very average, nice art and building, otherwise nothing unique. Obviously good coffee is critical, but I prefer a sit down specialty coffee shop to have great Wi-Fi, excellent ambiance to go with the obvious.

The interior was very spacious, there were quite a few people on their laptops, and there was a very lax atmosphere. I got a small chai latte while my boyfriend got a mocha. Both drinks weren’t that great compared to others we’ve tried, but I like visiting local coffeeshops so it wasn’t a loss. Plus, they have free wifi and... More

The barista/manager was very friendly - it seems like a really nice place. I went there wanting a flavored latte, so I ordered the caramel latte. I could barely taste the espresso.

This is still the best coffee in Tucson. I've tried them all and this is hands down the freshest best-tasting. Also VERY nice people.

I love this place. Not pretentious at all, very comfortable to sit and surf (free wi-fi). Best coffee around, not bitter! One of my favorite places to meet folks over coffee, get a little business done.

First, I should point out that, if you're looking for Luce, it's actually on Park Avenue north of University in a building that's addressed to University. There are a number of factors which make up a good coffeehouse in my mind. To me, the most important thing is the coffee. At Luce, they roast their own beans and some fantastic... More

After living in the NW for am extended period of time I became quite the coffee snob. Upon moving back to tucson I have been unable to find drinkable coffee until a friend told me about Caffe Luce. I am in heaven!! This little coffee company could be picked-up and placed in the heart of Seattle and hold it's own... More
