Java junkies in the Biltmore area now have a stylin' new spot to get their daily brew.
I just got word from the folks at Biltmore Fashion Park that Royal Coffee Bar
is now up and running at the shopping center.
It's the second location for architect Hayes McNeil's coffee business, which also serves expertly made espresso drinks and a slew of fresh pastries at the Downtown Phoenix Public Market.
As the man behind the sleek, modern design of both Postino
locations, McNeil has brought his good taste
to a place that could really use it: Besides the cafe inside Borders, Biltmore Fashion Park has been lacking a coffee shop since Coffee Plantation closed a few years ago.
Royal is open daily from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
