On my way to the office on Thursday morning I stopped at Lux to have a cappuccino and experience the new shop. Just about a month ago is when Lux moved from their old location a few feet away to the larger and more expansive building next door.
My first impressions when entering was that the shop was amazingly detailed inside. It is apparent that a lot of attention and care has been invested into every corner of the store.
It’s unlike any other coffee shop I have ever visited.
My cappuccino was dry (the foam was airy), and that’s not how I like mine (To me, it seems like a waste of a perfect chance to make some frothy, creamy milk). But, I did enjoy a shot of espresso, thanks to Jeff Fischer, which was delicious.

In case you missed the news, Cartel Coffee Lab has taken over the old Sola Coffee Bar which was in the same building.
