Don't worry, downtown coffee drinkers. You'll still be able to get your Cartel Coffee Lab fix, but starting this weekend, you'll have to head one door over after the company shuts the doors at its 1 North First Street location.
On Saturday, May 21, Cartel Coffee Lab will close its shop on the southeast corner of First and Washington streets in order to move into a new space in the lobby of the same building. The new shop, however, isn't expected to be complete until later this summer. So in the meantime, Cartel will operate a "pop-up" location during the weekday-morning rush.
Located just one door over from the current location, the temporary setup will be open from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. Monday through Friday and will serve a limited menu of cold-brew and drip coffee, as well as pastries from Phoenix Public Market Cafe.
It'll be business as usual at all other Cartel locations. For more information, check the Cartel Coffee Lab website.
