Snooze to Open Third Valley Location at ASU in Tempe Later This Year

Just a few months after announcing plans to open a second Valley location later this year, Denver-based Snooze, an AM Eatery is back with plans for a third restaurant. The next outlet of the retro-cool breakfast and brunch spot will be located in Tempe, specifically inside the remodeled Art Annex Building at Arizona State University.

The first Arizona location of Snooze opened last fall in the Town & Country Shopping Center in Phoenix. The restaurant is known for it's made-from-scratch breakfast and brunch offerings including Benedicts, pancakes, and stuffed French toast.

Snooze in Tempe will be located at the intersection of College Avenue and 6th Street, next door to the soon-to-open Postino WineCafe. The restaurant will serve the same breakfast and brunch menu that fans know from the Phoenix location. It is expected to open in late 2014.

The restaurant will be housed inside a custom-designed 3,500 square-foot space that will be designed in the same colorful, retro-futuristic vein as other Snooze restaurants. As at the other locations, diners will get free coffee and games of cornhole while they wait for their tables.

Other design elements will include Snooze's signature circular booths, rollaway garage doors, and a large patio.

Snooze will share the Art Annex Building with a new location of Postino WineCafe. The adaptive reuse of the 1950s Mid-Century Modern building is part of the revitalization of the ASU campus and creation of a new "ASU Recruitment Walk."
