Gill's Grounds

Set on a gravel parking lot next to Vertuccio Farms in Mesa, Gill's Grounds at first glance resembles nothing more than a wood shack. But the double-drive-thru coffee shop is full of heart — and caffeine. In 2015, after a 20-year stint in the U.S. Army, Chris Gill brought his love of coffee and military precision to this barrack-inspired building and menu. Instead of drip coffee, it’s Grog, a shot of espresso is a Shot of Hooah!, and don't sleep on the popular Maddog, a white chocolate, watermelon, and — eek — Red Bull wake-up call. There’s also a good chance Gill himself will be serving you through the sliding window. Say hi.
