I should add, while Spring uses Intelligentsia espresso for caps/lattes, they have an awesome selection of artesian coffees to be drank solo. Which Luxxe did you go to? I personally like the SM one better, better walking street and I think the staff is a bit better. And if you're not too carb conscious try an almond croissant. i had intelligentsia with my girl a few weeks ago, came highly recommended from her friend, who is a coffee snob, i was completely underwhelmed, as it was touted as the best cup of coffee in LA. man, if that's the best cup of coffee.....it tasted like a crappy cup of wawa coffee..
