“We aim to provide the surrounding residential and business community with a new option when it comes to where they start their day, where they end their day — or where they choose to come and hang out anytime in between,” says Owner Donny Peper, an NAU graduate who grew up in the Valley and resides in the neighborhood. “We’re proud to work with local vendors to feature the best of Arizona food and drink, and we’re thrilled to welcome our neighbors and new friends.”

Primely situated and featuring beautiful scenic views, Valley Coffee Co. boasts a variety of beer, cold brew and wine on tap, bar and dining room seating, an inviting pet-friendly patio (where four-legged family members can enjoy a specially made java just for them); a variety of light bites and quick snacks including baked goods, croissants, pastries, meat pies with eggs and bacon and BBQ chicken from Squarz Bakery in Scottsdale; coffee from Flagstaff’s Firecreek Coffee Roasters; and local craft beers, wines and hard kombucha selections. “On the shelf” items include unique finds like mushroom jerky and specialty coffee blends as well as other gourmet treats and merchandise.

In addition to showcasing items from local purveyors, Valley Coffee Co. supports the local arts by featuring ArtLink Phoenix-curated masterpieces that highlight significant people, places and things in Phoenix.
