    Quite possibly THE place to see-and-be-seen on the Central Avenue corridor, this hipster hotspot features excellent coffee, a nice selection of cocktails, and a small but tasty dining menu. Read more

    I read a comment that rated Lux Central as having the best coffee in the state of AZ. He wasn’t lying either!! Lux is by far the best!! Great vibes & coffee & bar & food. Best Iced Carmel Latte EVER!!

    Best coffee in phoenix hands down. Amazing breakfast. This is the best place in Phoenix. They have a cool deejay sometimes. Super busy. Get there early. Egg and bacon sandwich with cheese is amazing

    You've got a lot of options at Lux-- you can get a coffee (we recommend their Velvet mocha), order from the menu du jour, pick up fresh-baked pastries, or just stare as the beautiful people pass by. Read more

    Newer, bigger, better. Lux Central is it. Sit in a selection of retro back rooms for coffee & laptop work. Or hang out front w/friends for a well-crafted cocktail & a tasty meal. That's right. A meal.

    Lux is open late, everyone is so nice here, and it's a pleasant atmosphere—what more could you want? How about free refills on coffee w/ ice, or a $1 refill for iced coffee w/ two shots of espresso???

    Tried the jam cocktail tip, it was so good! But ask the mixologist to use fresh jam instead, not the Denny's jam they have in those little glass bottles. And ask him not to filter out the jam pieces.

    Iced black & white is delicious - pairs so well with all of the baked goods, such as the divine espresso chocolate bundt cake and Lux sandwich cookies. Omg.

    Definitely the coolest coffee shop in Phoenix. A must see for all Phoenicians and one of the best places to hang out, chat or get work done.

    Offered up as is or with the addition of thick-cut bacon and freshly sliced jalape?os, this mac and cheese at Lux is more or less made and baked to order nearly all day, everyday till midnight. Read more

    Lux has great food, especially the mochas and mac-n-cheese with jalepenos. Best baked goods ever! Cool and a bit quirky spot. I have been known to study for a few classes here when it's not too busy.

    Order on the left side of the building at the counter for coffee. The right side of the building at the bar for alcohol. Get the Mac n cheese - add jalape?o and bacon!

    No cocktail menu, so it goes like this: tell them what you like and they'll shoot from the hip. The trick knowing what you're in the mood for. Explain away, be specific, and you've got a bulls-eye.

    I love a good, strong iced coffee and Lux is definitely the place to get it! But you want to get here fast! It's a popular place and seating is almost impossible on the weekends.

    This place is hipster nonesense. But I like it. WIFI, Mac n cheese out of tea cups. Inexplicable typewriters everywhere. ? It's a little pricey but a fun hangout with great chai.

    Fried rice w veggies, cilantro & jalapeno egg ($12) is excellent. Seriously; worth the trip. Note: they don't serve it regularly; have to check the daily menu on their Facebook page.

    The best in-house batch brew around (and with free refills). Also, the vibe is amazing and the people are beautiful. Did I mention the Mac n cheese?

    They have great lattes. I really like their Black and White latte. They also have a great egg sandwich. The added tomato really kicks up the flavor.

    Great coffee, great baked goods. Try the salted chocolate chip walnut cookie with an americano. You won't regret it...unless you're allergic to hipsters.

    If you're looking for a refreshing cocktail, try asking the mixologist for one made with fresh muddled jam. It's a different experience, but delicious.

    Cool place that suffers from being a little too hip for its own good. Expect counterintuitive ordering systems, hidden menus and a lack of uncomfortable seating along with excellent food and coffee.

    Type away on your laptop while enjoying a well-crafted soy latte & listening to some cool tracks. Take an occasional break to people watch and eat something delectable from their counter.

    If you can manage to read the pretty but impractical glass menu, you'll see it contains some gems. Don't care for any of them? Tell the bartender your preferences, and you'll get a custom cocktail.

    (Loaded Mac N' Cheese): Didn't live up to the hype. Pasta was a bit over cooked. The 'cheesy' factor missed the mark. However, the melody the bacon and fresh, crispy jalapenos play is magical! Read more
