Eating Arizona: Songbird Tea & Coffee

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.
