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 anti-Starbucks.

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
