I recently made a trip to Cartel Coffee Lab with some friends and wanted to post a few photos from my trip. Cartel Coffee Lab opened early 2008 and is located in Tempe.
Overall it’s a pretty cool place. It has the feel of an air conditioned warehouse that has been converted to be a coffeehouse. But in a fast way: There are no built-in counter tops, and even the restroom is an addition. The seating area could use some expansion (we didn’t have quite enough chairs and tables for our group).
The outdoor signage.
As you can see, even the counter tops are not built-in.
Cartel is in a strip mall.
I didn’t see anybody using the Clover while I was there.
Customers can have their picture taken and posted on the wall.
Cartel Coffee Lab also roasts all of their own coffee.
