Don’t let the fact that this place is located in the corner of a strip mall steer you away. It has a unique atmosphere with beautiful artwork and a dark floral wallpaper that you don’t want to miss. Dark Hall Coffee (same owners as The Coronado PHX) specializes in plant-based drinks and pastries. Lattes, cortados and cappuccinos are all dairy-free. They use a milk blend made from cashews and other nuts. They have quite a variety of vegan pasties as well. Lavender & pistachio cakes, macarons, salted chocolate chip cookies, cinnamon rolls and shortbread drizzled with chocolate are just some examples of the yumminess that they make up daily. My favorite are the galettes. I’ve seen fig apple, peach and blueberry. I love the fruity gelatinous center of the pastry and it pairs well with my coffee. This isn’t the largest place so maybe plan on getting your order to go. Dark Hall is definitely worth a stop in if you are in the area.
Raw Organic Juice Bar (formerly Sip) is an organic, plant-based shop in Chandler. They provide fresh breakfast, lunch and light dinner entrees and raw juices that make healthy eating accessible and delicious. Their goal is to inspire and promote healthy living. They have juices, meal replacement smoothies, green & traditional smoothies, elixirs and power shots. They also have Acai Bowls and raw detox kits. I had the Over the Rainbow smoothie and enjoyed my first visit here.
