Did someone say coffee? Yes please, don’t mind if I do…and for me there’s only one choice when it comes to my favorite coffeehouse and that’s Caffe Luxxe where coffee brewing is an art form all it’s own.
It’s no surprise that Caffe Luxxe is consistently on all the best coffeehouse lists for Los Angeles area and beyond…and has been since the first location opened back in 2006.
Back then I was a working mom of one year old twins. I got up at 2:30 a.m. for work, so it’s no joke that coffee was a life force to get me through the day. And the only place I would ever stop was the Montana Avenue Caffe Luxxe (bonus for the kids there used to me a toy store next door, so it was an easy sell.)
Caffe Luxxe was created by two best friends, Mark Wain and Gary Chau, who quit their corporate jobs to follow their dream of owning a local neighborhood café. That dream not only became a reality, but they now own four shops on the westside of Los Angeles and Malibu with another one coming soon to Montecito.
The pair offer guests a luxury hand crafted coffee experience, All of Caffe Luxxe’s beans come from micro-lots throughout the world and are roasted at the company’s production headquarters, known as “Il Laboratorio.”
They also serve up delicious treats and pastries, my weaknesses include the gingersnaps and alfajores. So whether you are looking to get a start on your day or a midday pick-me-up, this is one coffee house you won’t want to miss!
