Espresso, Peanut Butter, and Nutella Together at Last at the Refuge in Phoenix

Central Phoenix's Melrose District just got a lot more cozy and roast-y with the addition of The Refuge, a combination coffee shop, restaurant, and wine bar that manages to balance and blend all three components nicely -- no identity crisis here. What's extra nice about this homey spot on Seventh Avenue just south of Camelback is that, at its core, it's one big charitable heart.
