Hands down the coffee gets 5 stars - it's the service that drags it to the middle of the pack. Consistently ordering two different drips at the same time gets somehow messed up. One cup is ready way ahead of the other. Alone this would be no problem at all but as a couple the result is a disjointed experience,... More

Wonderful cafe, and I was so happy they had pour over options. This isn't a place where you can post up with your laptop; however, it would be perfect for a small group or meeting up with a friend. It was lively, but not loud, everyone controlled their volume for those around them. I even bought a bag to bring... More

Staff is friendly. The latte is perfect. The croissant is fresh and flaky- just like they were intended.

I stop here almost everyday on my way to work. It makes going to work not so bad if I get to start my day off at Caffe Luxe. First off, the coffee is the best! It's the only coffee I can drink now. Secondly, the staff is great and super friendly. The pastries are also really good. Only wish... More

We come here often for coffee and pastries. The cafe lattes are really good and my favorite pastries are the raspberry vanilla tart and the apple strudel. The apple strudel has not been stocked in a few months so I'm really hoping it comes back soon (hint hint). Great ambiance too. My little one really likes the muffins.

Caffe Luxe has great coffee. Just the aroma when you enter is enticing. My summer favorite is "iced Americano." Their coffee is a treat.

While staying with a friend who did not have a coffee maker, finding good coffee locations each morning was key. I found Caffee Luxxe hit the spot. Great cup of coffee, friendly service and a wonderful calm atmosphere. Enjoy people watching as a sat at a coffee bar looking out over Montanan Ave.

Every time I visit Santa Monica, one of my first stops is Caffe Luxxe. The coffee and the ambience are delicious. The staff know a lot about coffee and share it readily. My coffee at home is better because of these conversations ... and sometimes, I order their wonderful coffee beans. Yum!

Caffe Luxxe is the perfect place to enjoy a really good cup of coffee... I love all three locations (two in Santa Monica and one in Brentwood)! The staff is super friendly and they even have delicious pastries if you're in the mood to indulge. I'll tell you one more thing, my Italian clients love this place and Italians know... More

Great coffee here! I love the ambiance as well. It's pretty quite and chill. I love coming here to work for a bit. They play really good music too. I like to just get black coffee whether it's drip or americano. So far, everything i've tried has been amazing. Their lattes are also to die for! So smooooth.

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
