Share a Cuppa (pertinent details about the owner, building, history, name)

Smack dab in the center of Tempe, just north of University Drive—above the ASU store and overlooking College Ave.—hides a gem of a coffee/wine shop/restaurant you have to experience to believe.

Pitchforks & Corks is a quiet, second-floor coffee shop with industrial chic decor and a delicious menu. I love this place!

It didn’t hurt either, to be treated by my talented author and friend Dr. Andrea Tovar. [Thank you, Andrea, for the amazing appetizers, cookies, not to mention the photo using the airbrush app that makes you look incredible, and me like some unknown glamorous woman. 🙂 ]

Perks (what I really like!)

  • The value of the food your receive for the price!
  • The deck, with built-in heaters, and an excellent view of “A” Mountain.
  • The look of the place! I hear they’re planning to improve with a slight remodel soon, too! Not sure what they could improve on except perhaps the cool-looking, though not-too-comfortable high stools.

What’s Brewing (coffee, tea, food)

  • Omelettes
  • Salads
  • Small plates
  • Sandwiches
  • Patries
  • Coffee/tea
  • Wine/beer/spirits

Percolation Factor (the activity/environment/energy/service)

  • You can make a reservation for parties of fifteen or fewer by calling (480) 727-4546 or emailing Melissa.
  • Happy Hour, M.–F., 3 p.m.–6 p.m.

The Grind (what I would change)

  • I’d let everyone know about this place, because it is such a hidden treasure.
  • A bigger tea selection would satisfy Tea Evangelists like me.

I love connecting people and ideas, so I’ve been creating small villages my entire life. Really, what better places can writers and musicians find to create “village” than independent coffee/tea shops? I wrote most of my Rhythms & Muse novel and Delfaerune Rhapsody series-in-progress in coffee/tea venues, so I found it natural to create this blog. Whether you came here to find a new favorite hangout, or suggest a spot not yet not posted, may you find Coffee CommuniTea exactly to your taste!
