Hob Nobs

The distinctiveness of today’s business comes from another era. This little coffee house is located in an area of Phoenix surrounded by historic homes and I can only guess that this building was one of those homes many years ago. To me, it’s sloping roof is more reminiscent of the English countryside than it is of the desert southwest.

Hob Nobs serves beverages and sandwiches to customers who enjoy the cozy surroundings. I haven’t tried it, but people who have seem to enjoy it.

Sharon,
You should perhaps point out to your readers from back East, or Europe, that in Phoenix the phrase historic home is used to describe a house or neighborhood that was built before World War II. In a metropolitan area of 4 million people today in which the population before 1940 was only 50,000, "historic" is relative.

It does sort of say "Once upon a time," doesn't it?

What a cute little house! Not much to do with Phoenix, I guess, but very cool anyway! :-)

I used to love going here. Then it was off to the library. Is Sage still down the street on McDowell. I love their old home furnishings.
