If you live or are traveling through Phoenix, check out Lux Coffee bar in central Phoenix. They make great coffee drinks and now serve food. Its also a great place for people watching

Seriously. I come from a coffee snob island (we have 5 local roasters and 8 cafes and having been all around the world) but after a 5 day search of coffee twice a day, we found the LUX. Total hipster joint with a sunday dj and juice and food that makes you drool. (Needs more gluten-free!) but a guy literally said, "Best coffee for 4 states, and I don't count Utah." He was dead on.

Excellent espresso macchiato. Smooth, but definitely flavorful. Fresh roasted in house, check out the roaster. Pastries and desserts will be my next try. Just next door to Pane Bianco, which has expanded into the old Lux space for dinner service. Hard to see from Central Avenue, until you are right on the turn, so keep an eye out or you'll pass it and have to circle through the back to get to parking. Great vibe, wonderful reclaimed interior.

I went here on a Sunday morning, and so maybe that was my mistake. The line was out the door. I waited (and waited and waited) until a harried but well-meaning server took my coffee and pastry order. My cappuccino was too wet and lukewarm, and the espresso base was so-so quality, and my piece of coffeecake was absolutely inedible -- dry and stale. I would have liked to get another coffee and trade in my pastry for something decent to eat, but I'd have had to wait in that line again . . . so I just gave up and left.

It's a very cool place that's very aware of its coolness (poetry on a big dry-erase board, a live d.j. playing alternative tunes, lots of hip people watching lots of other hip people), but I wasn't going there for hip; I was going there for good coffee and decent food, and I didn't get either.
