Yesterday I posted about a breakfast my friend Jim and I enjoyed Saturday morning at the new eatery Yards Bruncheon. And I mentioned not caring for the coffee, though I quickly added that my liking of the service, the food and — most of all — the prices, would most likely cause me to give the place a second chance. Maybe even a third.
The taste of the coffee was not an issue this morning when I stopped by Luxe Coffee House, which sits on First Street, just south of the Fox Theater. I ordered my standard drink — a double, 16-ounce Americano with extra room (in which I place a dash of half-and-half) — and was rewarded with one of the best servings of coffee I have enjoyed in as long as I can remember.
Luxe, which is open Monday through Saturday (the hours vary, but it stays open until 8 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday and 10 p.m. on Friday), offers the occasional entertainment event. And its menu includes wine and beer, too, and is a handy (if intimate) place to hang out before a show at either the Fox or the Bing Crosby Theater.
Oh, and did I mention the coffee? I'll be back.
