What You'll Get
The sludgy brew and poor periodicals stashed in most auto-repair shops only remind you of all the things you could be doing instead, such as wading in a kiddie pool filled with strawberry jam. Revamp your ride in a work-friendly space with today's Groupon, offering a comprehensive tune-up at Lube and Latte for $30 (an $80 value).
Owners Dustin and Eilis McNamara-Olde opened Lube and Latte as an upgraded alternative to other auto-repair shops that were highly deficient in both comfort and alliterative names. Their auto shop also houses a café where customers can enjoy a standard selection of beverages and bites and surf the web. Your tune-up includes spark-plug replacement, vacuum-line check, engine scan, 15-point inspection (including fluids, belts, and hoses), and adjustment of engine timing where applicable. The price is valid for four-cylinder engines; add $10 for six cylinders and $20 for eight cylinders.
A far cry from traditional auto-repair shops' uncomfortable plastic chairs, marathon soap operas, and powdered dairy creamer stations, Lube and Latte's clean café offers WiFi and Novo coffee. Get this Groupon and stop delaying your inevitable oil change, not your inevitable admission that despite what your diploma says, you don't speak Farsi.
- I have had my car serviced a few times, and I really appreciate that I never feel like these guys are trying to pull one over on me...the coffee area is open early, before the garage is, and people are encouraged to come in and hang out, like a normal coffee shop...They also have free wireless, which is great for keeping busy while you get your oil changed. – coffeelover1, Citysearch
- Great service, friendly, good value...example, I needed a new air filter, L&L would charge $13 for the filter, free install.…By the way, the coffee is some of the best in Denver. – Bill M., Insider Pages
- My barista/mechanic dude was insanely helpful and nice. They didn't try to talk me into a bunch of "extras"…I can't believe I'm saying this, but I actually am looking forward to my next oil change! – Aly J., Yelp
