In West Phoenix you might find the pickings a little slim as far as locally-owned coffee shops go, which is why people are especially grateful to have Elevate Coffee House in the neighborhood. The coffee house and lunch spot offers breakfast eats (think classic morning meals such as bagels, oatmeal, and a croissant sandwich) as well as lunch and dinner. Nosh on their Southwest Turkey sandwich or a Raspberry Turkey Havarti wrap before indulging in a sweet crepe for dessert. If you're feeling particularly international you could also opt for a savory crepe such as the Elevate Club, a turkey, ham and roast beef crepe that proves French fare doesn't have to be light. As far as drinks go they have a nearly endless selection of hot and cold coffee and espresso beverages as well as frappes, frozen cremes, smoothies and italián sodas. You can cuddle up comfortably in one of their cozy nooks knowing 10 cents from each cup of Joe served at Elevate goes to providing safe water for children in Africa.
