Located in Midtown Phoenix Urban Beans is a relaxing & casual place to spend time with friends or have a quick business meeting. We're just a simple coffee bar. Here are a few things you might like to know about how we think:
Simple in a complex world. We are all confronted with contrasts and contradictions everyday in the ordinary course of our lives. Urban Beans is a calming respite, the order and cleanliness of the design gives us assurance that something is in control while the familiarity and warmth of vintage chairs, copper doors from another time and place give us balance and comfort. Reliability. In the wholesomeness of the food, the quality of the beverages, the smile on the staff's faces, these are all things that we want to be right all the time, consistently.
Interaction in our neighborhood, our world. That's what Live Local, Buy Local means, to be truly sustainable, one must look beyond the surface and delve deeper. Yes, it is extremely important to use compostable containers, who needs more plastic hanging around for the next millennium? And yes, using green products for cleaning helps our water supply and air stay free of toxins, and we heartily support these things. What delving deeper means is finding out how to sustain a community and that means being a place where people gather to interact, where people can make their living close to where they live, where a smaller business can make money without losing out to the corporate world. The art and food inspires us to be happy and creative individuals. When we all take personal responsibility for our actions, our community will thrive.
