Cartel Coffee Lab
Cartel Coffee, Tempe’s favorite coffeehouse, has a longstanding reputation as one of the best places for a cup of coffee in the Valley. It roasts half a dozen varieties of single-origin beans out of this flagship spot including their signature roast of "Black Market Espresso." The Arizona mini chain has a handful of storefronts, but you can also find their coffee being brewed in coffeehouses throughout the surrounding cities. Coffee is clearly the highlight of this spot, but each store also sells tea and pastries, and there are a few that also carry local brews on tap. The hip chain is full of dark wood and squishy couches, perfect for lounging with a cold brew or espresso.
