Here are the eight best coffee shops around metro Phoenix.

Best Coffee House, Central Phoenix: Lux Coffee Bar

When Central Phoenix locals want to show off their neighborhood know-how to out-of-town guests, chances are they take them to Lux Central. Stationed in a nondescript building, this hipster hotspot houses a lively interior of mismatched mid-century furniture, typewriter centerpieces, grandma-chic dishware, and a seemingly endless maze of rooms in which to work, study, and socialize.

Best Coffee House, Downtown Phoenix: Shine Coffee on Vernon

Shine started off as a retro trailer coffee shop that cropped up at different farmers markets and events in downtown Phoenix. Since then, it's expanded to include a permanent coffee stand just south of Thomas Road off of Central Avenue. Though the small outdoor shack still serves up some of the best pastries in town, like raspberry peach handpies and orange blossom shortbread, the best part is Shine's brand-new "Living Room" lounge in the neighboring building.

Mmmmm wondering what the criteria are for best coffee house. Cartel has fantastic coffee to be sure, but a ten minute wait in the morning for espresso is a bit much. Dutch Brothers much more convenient.

And Pomegranate is in Ahwatukee not South Phoenix if we are talking neighborhoods and not map coordinates

It's good to see these coffee houses springing up, in spite of Charbucks.

How can Luci's Healthy Market Place be the best coffee in the North Valley when its not even in the North Valley? Matador Coffee!
