“Making great, natural smoothies.” That’s the latest, and only tweet from @buzzberry way back in March of 2009.
The intersection of Granite Reef and McDonald hasn’t seen much change lately. A vacant lot, an over-priced gas station, convenience store, and abandoned service station have been the norm for years. With the recent remodel of Basha’s, and the construction of the standalone Walgreens, it only makes sense that we see yet another coffee shop emerge.
I noticed a few months ago that the old service station on the southeast corner was beginning to change. Over the summer, an entire armada of police and service personnel dedicated an entire day to installing utilities to the newly remodeled building, the windows became decorated, and new signage has been installed. What are we getting in our little neighborhood of Hallcraft homes? A coffee shop slash smoothie bar. Huh?
I peered in the window last night and found that they are still well under way constructing the interior design of the store, which I am anxious to see. What kind of coffee bar are we to expect here? I wish I knew more. Their website offers very limited information. I guess I’ll just have to see when it opens.
Oh, and by the way, that’s not the only coffee shop in Scottsdale that’s preparing to open. There are others ;).
