This week’s Eating Arizona post is sort of a two-fer. I’ve been spending a lot of time exploring downtown Phoenix recently and came across this sweet coffee house (you may recognize the exterior from this post). My sweet photographer and I stopped in and I treated us to some tea and coffee. We sat down, were approached by one of the owners, and I knew immediately that I wanted to feature them on this series.
Johnathan and his wife, Erin, opened songbird to fulfill a lifelong dream Erin had of owning a coffee shop. They have a unique space shared with an art gallery and in a convenient location to the grad students who live down the street. Their menu is full of simple, straightforward drinks made to the highest standard. Behind the register you’ll find a collection of loose leaf teas that are brewed into the most amazing iced tea I’ve ever had. My only complaint is that my tea was so amazing I drank it way too fast and immediately wanted more. Not such a rough complaint to have, if you ask me.
I noticed the picture makes it seem like salsa came spilling out of my burrito when I cracked it open but this, friends, is not the case. I like to dip my burrito in salsa and that seems to be the most effective way to make that happen. Moving right along…
In addition to their well-crafted beverages they sell locally made burritos that are extremely unique…to say the least. I indulged in a plantain and bean burrito and was blown away by the amazing flavors. I’ve also had the pleasure of eating a steak burrito that was equally delicious. I have been multiple times now and cannot wait for my next visit. It’s extremely out of my way and well worth the drive. I love spending freelance days sipping on some tea and snacking on a burrito. Great customer service, top notch food, and iced tea to swoon over.
