I walked past this about 20 times before Maggie and Marissa brought it to my attention: on the bottom floor of the new Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa at the Biltmore, there’s an outpost of Royal Coffee. We met Marni for a post-workout cup and I thought I’d show you around.

The exterior is midcentury marvelous.


Inside: granola chic.


Marissa, the Vanna White of scones (baked by Urban Cookies):

Even the coffee was pretty, and we loved the Alessi cups. (There’s even an Alessi at the Biltmore, so you can get your own.)

P.S. Is anyone else in utter mourning over the orders closing at the Biltmore? I feel like I lost a dear friend, and I did, really. That’s one of my favorite places in Phoenix.
