    Many options, 2 types of pour overs, aeropress, Chemex and more.

    This is the best bet for out-of-towners who miss good coffee. Some mornings the coffee was burnt, but other days it was pretty good. Pastries were great.

    Cute place, the coffee is really good and it is very spacious and bright, perfect to work from a couch

    Love Cartel coffee but not this location. There is only PAID parking nearby and inside there is nowhere to get cozy.

    Excellent coffee and pastries.

    The people working at this location rarely seem to know anything about coffee, but they still manage to bring out a great batch brew of coffee.

    Nothing like having coffee in downtown Phoenix

    the one and one was delicious

    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.

    Ummmm yeah, I won't be returning.

    No more lunch service.

    The location is very central if you're in downtown. It's spacious for a downtown location. Can't go wrong for a place to do some computer work at.

    BEST TODDY EVER. No exaggeration. And their bacon chocolate chip cookies are surprisingly tasty!

    Fucking proper cup of Americano!

    Apparently some of the employees are too hip to know how to make a drink based on the chronological sequence they were ordered. Twenty five minute wait for an iced drink? Come on!

    I may or may not have just ordered a "dirty hore" (it's a horchata with espresso)

    The only spot with an outlet is the weird, sad therapy couch in the back corner. Prepare to look foolish.

    They are on NE corner where First Watch used to be.

    Truly great Latte. Just need cushions for concrete seats. (But there are other chairs to sit on.)

    The Salted Caramel Bar... One of the best things I have ever tasted... Ecstatic! Honey Latte is a yummy alternative to a caramel latte...

    You have to try the Clover and ask them to tell you about the corporate Starbucks takeover.

    Great service. The Black Market Espresso beans & quality milk make a great cappuccino. Cartel roasts their own beans, so pick any coffee on the board & enjoy the freshness. Food is fresh, flavorful.

  • Jeff K.

    One of the only places in Arizona to get coffee prepared with a Clover machine. Worth the price and the trip!

    Jeff Kossack · May 18, 2010

    Sit in the little nook in the front. You'll thank me later.
