A nonprofit restaurant that uses its proceeds to bring chef-inspired meals to cancer patients in the valley, opened in Phoenix near Shea Boulevard and 36th Street.

The Joy Bus Diner will serve hearty, made-to-order breakfast and lunch fare served Tuesday through Sunday from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Every cent earned will be used to support The Joy Bus, a local charity that has been bringing chef-inspired meals and caring conversations to cancer patients Valley-wide since 2011.

With the opening of The Joy Bus Diner, hungry Valley residents can now support this invaluable charity while also enjoying a gourmet, from-scratch breakfast or lunch. And while every cent raised will go to directly to charity, The Joy Bus Diner’s farm-fresh, from-scratch menu means doing good never tasted so good.

The Joy Bus Diner will serve up sandwiches such as Patty Melts made with grassfeed beef or Rubens topped with housemade corned beef brisket; and a double-dipped crispy Chicken in a Biscuit. For more breakfasty fare, enjoy Princess Poppyseed Pancakes stuffed with fluffy lemon, served with fresh fruit and choice of sausage or Tender Belly bacon, or Roasted Chile Benedict with AZ-raised filet and “Woods Bread” topped with roasted chile hollandaise.

Joy Bus Diner will also host events and cooking classes, as well as serve as a dedicated commercial kitchen for The Joy Bus’ weekly meal deliveries.
