Where can you get a cafe experience with a live entertainment component? Kaffe Live, of course. The 2,000-square-foot space is nestled in the middle of a shopping center at 5135 S. Fort Apache Road, Suite 145.
Near the front door is the triangular stage with a mic, ready for the next entertainer. One never knows who might show up. There’s no karaoke, and only pre-approved (family-friendly) acts are given the green light to perform.
But you’re also here to eat. The menu is on an oversized reader board above the counter where you order.
Breakfast is served all day and features the breakfast burrito made of scrambled eggs and cheese in a tortilla. Make it your own with add-on choices such as bacon, ham, sausage, chorizo, potatoes O’Brien, smoked salmon, mushrooms, avocado and jalapenos. Don’t want the tortilla? Have your breakfast in a bowl instead.
There is also the Kaffe bagel breakfast with bacon, sausage or ham with egg and cheese, or try the lox and bagel with cream cheese. A granola bowl is also available and comes with fruit, or add acai sorbet. Muffins, pastries and plain bagels are also on hand.
For lunch or dinner, sandwiches rule the day. Choose yours on bread or make it a wrap. The choices include roasted turkey with bacon and Swiss cheese; smoked ham with Swiss and Dijonnaise mayo; roast beef with cheddar cheese and horseradish dressing; Italian with salami, ham, Provolone cheese and marinated peppers; tuna with avocado, tomato, onion, shredded carrots, sunflower seeds and lettuce; Buffalo chicken with bacon, pepperjack cheese, lettuce, Buffalo sauce and ranch; and chipotle chicken with bacon and chipotle mayo.
There are three wraps — chicken Caesar with Provolone, romaine lettuce and Caesar dressing; the veggie with pepperjack cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, fried zucchini and ranch; and the smoked salmon with salmon, dried tomato, cream cheese spread, romaine lettuce and onion. Salads come in three styles — fruit, chicken and Caesar style.
The smoothies owe their silky texture to being made with yogurt. The coffee bar includes freshly brewed coffee, specialty hot, iced or blended coffee drinks (latte, mocha, macchiato, espresso) and hot tea.
Mix it up with lattice chips in your choice of seasoning, mozzarella cheese sticks with marinara sauce, potato skins or fried zucchini sticks. And leave room for the New York cheesecake.
