The locally owned breakfast and lunch spot Morning Squeeze is bringing its groovy brunch vibe to Downtown Phoenix with a third location set to open this Spring. Positioned on the NW corner of 1st and Washington Streets, the newest Squeeze will offer its full menu of modern and classic brunch favorites as well as new offerings dedicated to the needs of the downtown community.
“Morning Squeeze started as a neighborhood hang out. That place where you could share some amazing eats and classic cocktails, people watch and run into friends,” said Marketing Manager Shea Neill. “You can’t cookie-cutter that vibe. So we really look to the community to see what they want and need to start their days.”
For the urban environment of Downtown Phoenix, Morning Squeeze is adapting the 3,400 square foot space to include an indoor-outdoor bar, a dedicated grab and go area for easy take away, a wrap around patio and ample outlets and connectivity for people to meet and work. Fairbanks Construction is the contractor for the project.
A rocking 70s and 80s playlist, a version of its signature Lovin’ Touchin’ Squeezin’ neon sign and a custom mural by local artist Jayarr Steiner will round out the setting.
“We are so looking forwarding to being a part of the downtown scene,” Neill said. “We’ve already gotten such great feedback and are excited to get to know the community even more.”
Morning Squeeze opened its first location in the heart of Old Town Scottsdale in 2013 and a second spot off Mill Avenue in Downtown Tempe in 2018. The Arizona-owned concept specializes in classic breakfast favorites like Biscuits & Gravy, Chicken & Waffles and Benedicts alongside modern brunch dishes like the Hangover Bowl and Blackened Salmon Salad and a range of creative cocktails and coffee drinks. Its locations all have dog-friendly patios as well as a Tail Wagger menu just for Fido.
