Crowds, AWFUL Seating and Splinters Galore – I have been here 3 times and each experience has been the same. It is too crowded, seating and furniture is awful and I really don't care for the ambiance. The worst is the picnic benches outside... I actually got multiple splinters in my legs! The coffee and food is good but I would much rather go to Hobnobs which I find more welcoming and accomodating. I can't understand why it is so crowded because it really isn't that great.
LOAD MUSIC, STINKS, CRAPPY SEATING – -LOUD MUSIC, impossible talk, or read, or do anythiing.
-STINKS, my girlfreind complains of the stench on my clothes, fumes from roasting room send out burnt coffees fumes.
-SEATING is HORRIBLE. Couches and lounge chairs are filthy, have springs or framing poking thru. Impossible to get to/from these seats, probably a fire hazard.
-Finally, the coffees brewed a bit to strong, the main reason I dont go to Starbucks, But given all the above, Starbucks seams like a gem.
Try Clarindon hotel, they have Lux coffee at same price and much better place. Or Lola's.
This is how you imagine the Original Seattle Starbucks WAS... – Art gallery setting. Low key clipboard art. Good service. Comfortable couches. Architect's tables for lighting. Free wireless. Great coffee and tea. Crowded, lively downtown crowd. Nice vibes, everything.
Pleasantly surprised – After hearing great things about the atmosphere, staff and of course the coffee - I had to check it out for myself. This reminds me of what a real coffeehouse should be like. I went on the weekend and it was busy, but it's great to see people making it through the construction. I'm hooked.
Best Coffee spot in AZ – I absolutely love lux, from the couches, the homemade baked goods, to the friendly staff and great drinks. It's a great place to meet up with friends, do some work, or just hang out.
One of the best coffee places in Phoenix – The coffee here is especially good for Phoenix. It is on par with the coffee you would get in Seattle or San Fran. They also have pretty good pastries and what not... No other place in Phoenix comes close.
Hip – The new owners have cozied up the place as much as possible, so now there are little colorful flowers at your hip concrete table. Its the best we've got here in Phoenix for culture, coffee and design.
Stylish Central Avenue coffee bar serves expertly created, classic European espresso drinks. – In Short
Lux Coffeebar baristas in chic black uniforms pull espresso-based drinks made from classic Italian recipes. Downtown artists, business people and solo sippers tapping at laptops linger in a hip, white-on-white interior flooded with natural light. Caffeine mainstays like cappuccinos, lattes, mochas and teas are presented with flair. Eats are typical coffeehouse treats, but there's also fresh bread served with soft butter and tangy jams.
The Best Coffeebar ever! – Since the new ownership Lux Coffeebar is more enjoyable, everything seems better. Every time I walk in I receive a warm welcome from the friendly staff. Everyone is always upbeat, the coffee is superb and the ambience is bright. I look forward to going in every morning . It is truly a great way to start the day! Bravo!
Best Coffee Bar Under New Management – Since mid-October, Lux Coffee Bar is owned by Jeff and Tara Fischer. The menu items and prices have remained the same with excellent bakery goods baked on the premises. The service is friendly and cordial.
