I thought of this idea while I was having a mocha this morning. So here’s how it works: I’ll describe one aspect of a coffee shop, and you have to figure out where you are.

1. This coffee shop has a pool table

2. I have a round coffee bar which is covered with bright blue tiles.

3. My menu board is also a translucent photo

4. We bake all of our pastries and sweets in house

5. We have a drive through with a chalk board that shows the temperature.

6. Our coffee bar / wine bar also serves up regular music events.

7. Name two coffee shops that have an all burgundy interior.

8. This coffee house is next to a very nice French restaurant, and inside a restored home.

9. This coffee shop has wood floors, and you can get an sweet delight next door. They have been named #1 by a the New Times.

10. This place makes a wicked latte, does latte art, and holds weekly Tango lessons held at the shop.

11. This coffee house has white leather furniture, and does latte art while being uber-trendy at the same time.

12. This coffee shop has a fireplace, and has been known to serve up Pepperoncini’s with their food items.

So, who can name the most places?

Arizona Coffee
