Coffee Shop

“For a true taste of Arizona stop by Songbird Coffee & Tea House — they keep things close to home. Case in point: their coffee beans and tea are all sourced locally and even their vegan pastries are delivered from the ladies at Treehouse Bakery right down the road. Try some local favorites (like the nitro cold brew or the espresso spritzer with agave and sparkling water) and enjoy the views of the historic neighborhood in Downtown Phoenix. Or, just kick back with friends and listen to live music. That works, too.”
