Best Coffee House, Tempe - 2009
Sure, there are a few indie coffee house options in downtown Tempe. But if you're willing to drive a bit south just past U.S. 60, you'll find the totally-worth-the-trek SOLO Café. Open for almost two years now, this seven-day-a-week space serves up some mean and tasty espresso drinks as well as a bunch of loose leaf teas. In case the beverages and free Wi-Fi aren't reason enough to procrastinate, there's a pretty cool library and a little television that plays DVDs. There's also a community night for musicians on Wednesdays.
