Honeycutt Coffee, located in the Maricopa Business Center, wakes up patrons headed to work with fresh cups of coffee and a menu of cafe-style breakfast sandwiches and baked goods. During the afternoon, its dark wooden tables and comfy leather chairs often host professionals having lunch meetings or researching sick-day illnesses they could have plausibly contracted since 8 a.m.
Fueling their activities are sandwiches and salads, including spicy turkey paninis with a chipotle pesto spread, roasted garlic chicken paninis, and chicken caesar salads. Honeycutt tries to source its wares from local businesses whenever possible, and its coffee is roasted by Phoenix's Espressions.
The cooks at GiGi's Cafe call their cuisine soul food––and that's true if your soul happens to crave tender beef or pork ribs slathered in housemade hot or mild barbecue sauce, fresh-baked desserts like sweet potato pie, or Broaster chicken, a less greasy alternative to fried chicken. Of course, it's hard to imagine any entity––celestial or otherwise––turning down succulent pulled pork or chicken or neatly cut squares of baked mac & cheese or fresh-cooked corn on the cob. When it comes to universal crowd pleasers, though, the real winner might be GiGi's impressive triple-decker chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting, a slice of which makes an especially fitting ending to a decadent meal or a bad first date with a personal trainer.
Clean, healthy eating is easy at Genuine Fresche, where antioxidant-rich fruits go into acai bowls heaped with granola, and fresh produce finds its way into juices and smoothies packed with flavor and nutrition. Visitors can also add in customized blends of probiotics and immunity boosters, which can help ward off a case of the sniffles or the bite-everything-in-sighties.
Servers at Talebu Coffee and Wine Cafe keep their customers fueled morning, noon, and night with a full espresso bar and menu of gourmet sandwiches and freshly baked goods, all conveniently available from the drive-thru window or at the counter. Weekly specials, local fine arts shows, and evenings of live music keep the place hopping, while a planned wine bar–coming soon–is expected to provide unique vintages from small vineyards around around the world.
Operating under the mantra Flavor Your Life, Bahama Buck's sends its patrons on a tropical holiday with every sip of its gourmet drinks. Island-inspired decor outfits each Bahama Buck's location, and the business's approach to flavor as an art form?with more than 90 flavors of shaved ice?carries over to its smoothies, which are carefully blended from fresh fruit and juices. Hawaii's Kona coffee beans are used for Island House coffees, and island specialties, such as 100% natural juices, provide an afternoon pick-me-up without the pressure of negotiating with the intimidating children running the neighborhood lemonade stands.
