Our Quick PHX guide this year showed you a lot of dining, partying, and entertainment options this year, but not everything made the cut into the little pocket guide. From happy hour to day drinking and cocktails, we have some spots that deserve honorable mention for slinging some of the best imbibing options in Central and Downtown Phoenix.
Today we'll show you the best spots for coffee in Central/Downtown Phoenix:

Cartel Featuring cold brews and espressos crafted with an attention to detail that borders on obsessive, Cartel is pretty much the ideal for in-house roasted coffee in the Valley. Giant Coffee Ingredients like Four Barrel Coffee, Straus Milk, and local honey from McClendon's Select, make the Honey Vanilla Latte at Matt Poole's (Matt's Big Breakfast) coffee shop seriously craveable. Shine Coffee The best part of this caffeine stop in the Willo neighborhood (besides the vanilla bean latte) is its new homey seating area, appropriately called The Living Room.
Jobot Coffee If you like your joe with a side of crepes, Jobot has you covered. The Roosevelt Row staple serves Cartel roasted beans until midnight Sunday through Thursday and 24 hours on Friday and Saturday.
