Right click the link and open in incognito. They seem to be slowly figuring out how to block that but I've been reading their articles for a long time with that method.

I don't go to a wide range in Phoenix, but the Serafina in the Luhrs building mentioned...somewhere, can't remember if this thread, makes a really good cup and is my go-to downtown.

Can you tell me why you like it? It's in walking distance yet I've never felt inclined to go in there and never hear anyone say anything about it - good or bad - so I'm genuinely curious.

I have only been here once, but it is probably my favorite. I go to Cartel because of proximity to folks I need to meet, but I chafe at the hipster vibe. Press has less of this, but I don't like their coffee as much.

Lola Coffee is my go-to coffee place. Songbird is also nice when the weather is a bit more agreeable to sit in the front yard and people watch.

Good coffee, friendly people, comfortable seating. The owner has been helpful to political campaigns that I have been on the fringes of. The likelihood of people having business meetings or talking loudly on their cellphones is a bit lower than at some places. I used to go to Lola's but I don't think I belong there. Too cool for school.

Since all y'all are CheesecakeFox restaurant fans, the Arizona Republic just made your day better. You will be able to live in one of those restaurants in the near future:

Next up for restaurateur Sam Fox: A Phoenix hotel?

Weldon B. Johnson, Arizona Republic Published 4:13 p.m. MT Aug. 23, 2019

Prolific Phoenix restaurateur Sam Fox appears to be getting into the hotel business.

The Phoenix Business Journal reports that Fox is listed as the developer of the hotel portion of a mixed-use development planned for 44th Street and Camelback Road in Phoenix.

The hotel will have 85 rooms and 20 condos, according to the Business Journal. It's across the street from the Fox Restaurant Concepts headquarters. The property, which will be called 44|Camelback, also will include office space, retail space and restaurants, the Business Journal reported.

The Republic has reached out to Fox’s organization for more information on this developing story.

Fox sold Fox Restaurant Concepts, his string of popular Valley restaurants, to The Cheesecake Factory for $308 million last month. Fox's company has 23 restaurants throughout metro Phoenix, including Olive & Ivy, Dough Bird and The Henry.

Fox Restaurant Concepts is expected to operate as a subsidiary of Cheesecake Factory and Fox will lead the company from its Phoenix headquarters, according to a press release announcing the sale.

Reach the reporter at weldon.johnson@arizonarepublic.com. Or follow him on Twitter at @weldonjohnson.

Press Coffee. The shop I frequent most often is their location on Apache in Tempe.

edit: My second favorite is Mr. Coffee at home. It's a great place, too!!
