The Diamondbacks aren’t the only fan favorites to recently return to Downtown Phoenix.
spoonz_WebSpoonz Cafe, the latest coffee cafe concept from Denise and Garry Bismore, is now open inside the 101 North Building at First Avenue and Adams.
The Bismores have a wildly successful track record for coffee and lunch hot spots, having previously owned the Silver Spoon Cafe  in the historic Hotel San Carlos and more recently The Daily Grind, the Washington/Central cafe that closed early last year.
Spoonz doesn’t stray far from the Bismores’ proven restaurant template.
Beyond a full menu of hot, cold and frozen coffee and tea beverages, for breakfast Spoonz offers quiche slices for $3.95, New York bagels ($1) and bagel sandwiches ($3.95), breakfast burritos ($3.95), yogurt and fruit cups ($3.50) and all the familiar fresh-baked pastries Silver Spoon and Daily Grind customers loved. 
A wide selection of wraps and paninis, which sell for $6.95 each, take center stage at lunch. The Atlantica Wrap and Caprese Panini are great vegetarian options, while carnivores can take on the Portabella Burger Panini (sausage stuffed mushroom), Hail Caesar Wrap, Tuna Melt Panini, Country Ham Panini, and my personal favorite, the Scottsdale Panini with chicken, bacon, avocado and Swiss cheese. (Now, if we could just convince Denise and Garry to change the name to something more Downtowny; might we suggest “The Ambassador Panini,” in honor of the kitchen’s helpful neighbors?)
There are also build-your-own-salads for $5.95, Soup of the Day selections ($3 cups/$4 bowls), and Garry’s famous sweet potato fries (an incredible value at $1.95).
Spoonz is open 6:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday-Friday. Please stop in and welcome Garry and Denise back to the neighborhood!
