The Refuge is a non-profit coffee shop and wine bar located in the Melrose Boutique District of Central Phoenix.
At first glance, The Refuge may not look like much. But once you try the food, meet the people working there and hear their story, you will fall in love.
The employees are all welcoming and remember the names of the regular customers and their favorite orders. The proceeds from your meal and drink purchases here provide much-needed funding to nonprofit organizations throughout the Valley.
The food and drinks are all of high quality. Our favorite beverage was the lavender latte. A unique latte flavor that they make perfectly.
Everything we tried was delicious, including the pastries, breakfast burritos, bruschetta and their green chile pork.
Along with coffee, tea, wine and craft beer, breakfast and lunch are served. Dinner is also available everyday but Sunday.
They offer Happy Hour daily, 3-7 p.m. and have live music and entertainment on the weekends.
