Lux Coffeebar (Phoenix)

I'm not really into the coffee house environment. My general view is that
it's basically over-priced hot chocolate with a bit of steamed milk thrown
in. Personally, I like hot tea. But even so, there are a few places that
I like to go that have reasonable service and the atmosphere isn't too
corporate (read "down with Starbucks!").
I was introduced to
Lux Coffeebar just recently. Normally this isn't my type of atmosphere.
I'm not big into the weird no-one's-ever-heard-of-it music bands, but
this place caught my attention. Maybe because it's locally owned, had
prices that were much more reasonable, and was basically the all-around
The only thing that could have made it better
would have been wifi internet access. When asked why they didn't provide
it, they responded by saying that they were worried that people would come
there and buy a drink just to sit there on their laptop and use the internet.
Gee, ya think?
Overall I felt very comfortable there even though
I was out of my normal element. I would have no problem going back there
to sit and relax with a warm drink on a cool Arizona
winter evening, providing
they continue to serve hot tea.
The State of Arizona comprises the extreme south-western portion of the United States. It is bounded on the north by Utah, on the east by New Mexico, on the south by Mexico, and on the west by California and Nevada.
