Love the environment and the fact that they have vegan options. The food is amazing! The coffee is not my favorite but, it's such a great place to meet with friends. If you are looking for a business meeting place this would be a great spot as well just beware the hours are very short from 8-3 on weekdays. More...
I love that they have oat milk as an option. If you want to eat something light the food choices will hit the spot with your coffee!
Delicious coffee love this place. Service was amazing and i recommend to everyone. Better than durch and starbucks combined! Id give 6 stars if I could
Great coffee shop. Vegan options. Friendly staff. Comfortable chic casual.
Love, love, love this coffee shop! I always stop by when I'm in town. The vibe is very cool. Really enjoy the old building atmosphere. It has so much character and history. The coffee and breakfast/lunch food are delicious. Definitely recommend a visit. More...
Love this place! Wish they were open later, but a great spot for studying, meeting up with friends, or trying great scones. Also a cool after-hours concert venue in the back. So glad they're now completely vegan. More...
Friendly staff and chill vibes. The food is amazing!
What a wonderful respite and made a new friend!
Fantastic avocado breakfast bagel. Sprouts, avocado, beautifully made with attention to detail- made my day :)
Great spot to get a little caffeine boost while you're hanging out in Mesa, the atmosphere is great and the menu is just the right size. The pastries are all 100% vegan too! More...
old movie theater turned into music venue. interesting place.
Had the breakfast bagels, 5 stars for ambience and delicious food. Amazing service too! Best vegan brownies on the planet, this is one of those places that could convince you that you could be vegan.
Jennifer Neetz Hayes
Love their lattes and friendly staff!
The Nile Coffee Shop is a great place to visit. I like it a lot because it is a local restaurant that makes the best coffee! More importantly, Frankie, who is one of the Baristas always delivers impeccable customer service. She always smiles and is always to ready to help the next customer with such alacrity. She makes my hot hazelnut almond milk latte to perfection! She makes it taste sooooo good! It is always delicious! Thank you Frankie! More...
Love the vegan food and craft beers
I loved the outside set up. The tables outside are perfect before the summer heat hits Arizona. The inside is well decorated as well. I did have to wait in line longer than I'd like. Be prepared for that and manage your time accordingly. I went on Saturday around 9:30-10:00. I ordered a large drip coffee with a splash of half & half and sugar. To compliment my coffee I ordered a cinnamon sugar bagel with cream cheese. Coffee was yummy. To my surprise my bagel came with a few pieces of fruit. I appreciated the bright touch. I came to Nile for a wellness event, we headed to another room away from the barista section and dining section. They also have yoga sessions and music events here. The wellness event was put on by babes&brews + woman2womben. Loved the topic covered by Melanie Peralta! I'm not crazy about Downtown Mesa. But if you're in the area, stop by Nile! More...
Moved to AZ a few weeks ago from Portland and was so excited to find this coffee shop, it's so nostalgic, such a Portland-esque coffee shop I loved it!! So cute inside and 100% vegan. Me and my partner got some sandwiches I got the philly and they got the Cuban and both were so good!! The philly was more like an Italian sausage and pepper sandwich but was still super yummy and the Cuban was delicious as well! Loved the ham. Next time we'll try some more sandwiches and some coffee! More...
I started coming here recently and have been back a few times since. I find it to be a great place to sit and work - internet is fast (and as a backup, Verizon has full bars here too). Coffee is great and service is amazing. If your visiting Mesa, this is probably the best privately owned coffee shop around... More...
Great prices friendly staff they are very helpful I very much enjoyed the breakfast bagel I had with my chocolate mocha :) can't wait to visit Arizona again the place is very stylish over all great !
I have to be honest - I always found The Nile looked a little intimidating. But they've done a fabulous job of making the entry way more welcoming and capturing the historical aspects of their building while also bringing it into 2018. I attended a yoga session in the back venue - and it was awesome. After, I grabbed one of the most delicious and beautiful lattes I have ever had in Arizona. Complete with a beautiful form art on top. I will be back. Again and again and again. The food looked amazing too! More...
I am in LOVE with this place. My family and I eat here about twice a week. Just tried the breakfast chicken Sammie today for the first time and almost cried. It was amazing. I also love the Southwest bagel (that soyrizo!) and pretty much any sandwich they have. Their chocolate chip cookies are ammmmmazing also. My kids love the mac and cheese. It's a pretty busy but quiet spot. Nice for sitting and answering emails or for brunch with friends. More...
Great venue for the cost!
The best coffee shop in Mesa in my experience. Great atmosphere for working or talking. Very comfortable. Extremely friendly. A small but delicious menu -- all vegan food! My daughter loves the Mac and Cheese (vegan) and the scones. More...
Love their weekend brunch. They have more choice on the weekends. I had the new Reuben: vegan corned beef, brown mustard, sauerkraut, provolone, sourdough. They soy chai latte is also very good! More...
I love The Nile. Great staff!! Delicious vegan food and it's decent priced!! Usually vegan restaurants are overpriced. Not here though. Coffee and tea is great. So many yummy lattes! Plus it's super cute!! More...
One of several locally owned coffee shops in downtown Mesa. And a great place for vegan dishes.
Go to place for some quick easy vegan food and a coffee. They have some very filling and tasty vegan bagel sandwiches for $5 which I find very reasonable. Their coffee is pretty good. Only baby complaint...Lattes once in a while come out warm some make sure you ask for it very hot! Nice place to set up your laptop and work for a bit! More...
You guys are super nice, accommodating, and adaptable working with the Acro -cats today.
The Cuban sandwich and soup of the day .. cheezy potato soyrizo was amazing .. when you're dairy free you miss creamy soups .. this one tricks you into believing it's the real deal!! More...
One of the best places in Arizona..Deeeeelicious.. the coffee, Mac and cheese, broccoli cheddar soup, sandwiches, and desserts are amazing. We can taste the Love It's easy to buy multiple items on the menu once you bite into one item you end up ordering more food and it's Vegan More...
My favorite place to eat, drink coffee, and get some work done. The vibe in here is awesome with great tunes and atmosphere. The food never disappoints, I've tried a variety of items on their menu and am always happy. I especially love the BLTA. They have a great deal on weekdays for a Soup and Salad for $5 which is such a great deal to get a healthy lunch. I LOVE their drip coffee, and they have a special latte every day for $3. Their pastries are fresh, unique, and delicious. Its an affordable place to get vegan food and drinks. I'll sit in there for a few hours at a time working. I only wish they were open later! More...
Everything about this little treasure is amazing. Trendy friendly awesome vegan food. Came for the nitro brew and left with a new favorite! Today they are making blueberrie pancakes with chocolate syrup for a wrestling event right next door. They have some bagels! More...
Linda Lee Linder
Pancakes were good service was fast
Food, service and atmosphere are great. My husband and I enjoy the live entertainment as well.
Check it out!!!! Looking good!!!
Tommy Gunn Latham
Very nice place. thanx for being so kind and accommodating.
Jake D Bobay
Thank you for keeping Nazis out!
Fun mustache contest. My first time.
This place is fantastic. Just moved to Mesa, def going to be back to this place. Great americano, exactly the aesthetic I want. Not your grandmas coffee shop.
Exceptional vegan food. Staff is always friendly and polite. Love the squawker sandwich. Everything is super fresh
I was looking for a place where I could get a frothy cup of coffee. Lately that's all I've been craving. So naturally I yelped coffee shops and the Nile Coffee Shop popped up. We headed there for the coffee but found a gem for delicious vegan cuisine. The menu is quite extensive for a coffee shop. Everything is vegan. I got the buffalo chicken. It came on toasted bread with my choice of a side salad. The sandwich was mouthwatering. The buffalo sauce had a bit of a kick to it and left your mouth wanting more. The salad came with a balsamic vinaigrette, so nice and sweet but not too sweet. The combination was the perfect amount of food. For my drink I ordered the cappuccino. And yes it was perfectly frothy. In my quest for the perfect cup of coffee, I found exactly what I wasn't looking for. Now I have a new breakfast/brunch/lunch/coffee spot to look forward to. More...
Michelle and the Nile are generous with Vegan causes and Michelle is generous in supporting live music in the Valley. She works tirelessly behind the scenes championing the causes of others. I have enjoyed many incredible events in both the coffeehouse and the music theatre. She is a masterful chef and restaurant owner. Her vegan chipotle bagel is my favorite and her vegan lattes also make my day. She worked with us to provide space for our event Souls Unfolding and our other event which was the conference Vegan World 2026. I am grateful to have Michelle’s venue and coffeehouse in the Valley. Treat yourself and head over there now. More...
When I have a day off from work I generally will come here to get great food and to relax.
Had a good time. Sandwich was good. Barista was helpful with the menu. I'll bring a few bike riders with me next time. My visit was during the week so next it'll have to be the weekend for the expanded menu. I'm ready. One the customers on the way out mentioned it was one of their favorite spots for breakfast and went out of the way to get the breakfast bagel. Check it out for your self. Peace. More...
I came here with some friends last weekend for their vegan brunch, and I can't say enough good things about it! I got the chick'n and waffles and it was genuinely the best vegan meal I've ever had. I might start requesting Saturdays off of work so I can get brunch every weekend! Pretty quick service and a very nice facility. More...
The My Boy Blue 2.0 is amazing.
We all know the granny that say she puts that stuff on everything. You know, the red hot granny. No, the brand Red hot sauce, not...I don't even want to know what you were thinking. Buffalo sauce is my weakness. I go through a liter each week. Do I have stomach issues? Maybe. Is it worth it? Definitely. So when I saw that they had a vegan buffalo chicken sandwich that I could wash down with a vegan latte, I got in my car to drive THIRTY MINUTES just to enjoy this sandwich. It was worth the time and effort. I went on a Saturday morning. They had live music (he was incredible), a fundraising event going on, and arts and craft. The staff was so incredibly nice. The sandwich: Fell apart a bit, would not get it on sourdough next time if another option was available. The ranch was absolutely perfect. The latte: Wonderful espresso. Carefully crafted. The salad: My favorite part. It was so fresh and crisp. I ended up eating the excess chicken with it. I'd recommend this for a coffee date or kids that do well with music in the mornings. More...
Yes. Just yes. This place is fantastic. Not only is it full of character and mood lighting, but they have a 100% vegan menu. Am I vegan? No. Can I appreciate some kick ass vegan cuisine? Yes!The avocado toast is amazing. I obviously wouldn't be a millennial if I didn't order it. Hubs had the "soyrizo" (chorizo) southwest bagel sandwich. He was very skeptical at first, but he loved it. Even wanted to order a second one.The coffee is good, not great, but suits me just fine for an afternoon of working and snacking.We will definitely be back to try more sandwiches and salads! More...
I really enjoyed the vibes and the food was amazing ! I live so close and kind of mad at myself for not stopping by sooner ! I had the avocado toast and Mystery burrito ! They were both delectable and affordable !! More...
Great vegan spot with an industrial style. Good coffee, good food. $5 yoga on Saturday morning.
This was my first time visiting and I had a pretty good time, however, I would love to see the cooling system to either be better or for water to be cheaper/free. I know all of Arizona gets horrible during the summer but there were definitely times that it was just simply too much to handle. The sound also could have been a bit better. But for a basic venue not bad Mesa, not bad. More...
Always a great place to see a show! Easy to find! Good amount of parking! Staff gets you in quick and is always nice. Crowd is well controlled. Been going to shows for years and always recommend this spot! More...
Steven Ray Jimenez
The Nile is my second home, always great shows and a very friendly staff. I love this place and I can't believe I'm lucky enough to have a place to go that caters to my music interests. I'll always go here.
Spent half of my life time going to shows here, this place is home. Made most of my long term friends through this place. I am forever greatful.
Zoe Rose Cozzolino
I love love love the nile. It is honestly my most favorite venue. But the only thing that sucks is the sound quality at some of shows. I also don't like how they have a bar now because that limits the area in which people my age can be. More...
I've been to hundreds of shows here between upstairs and down and the underground is my all time favorite spot in AZ. The staff stops fights but understands the scene really well so they are totally understanding of the situations given to them. They recently got their liquor license and have been renovating and improving the spot throughout the years to keep everyone happy. Both venues have amazing staff, great sound and no drama or tension between the crowd and security, which i have felt at just about every other venue in town that has security. Without Michelle and the Mantooth team the entire Arizona hardcore and metal scene would be a very different place and you all should do everything you can to support them for what they have done for their community More...
The Nile has been such a crucial venue to Arizona. I have never had a bad experience here and have personally seen how security ensures the safety of all venue goers. This is a venue where I know I'm safe and can be free to enjoy all the wonderful music that they are able to bring to Arizona. More...
The Nile is an excellent venue that feels quite like home to me. They have given me the opportunity to see some bands I never thought I'd see in an environment that is comfortable to me. All the staff is wonderful and truly care about the experience of show goers. Best venue in Arizona. More...
The Nile has been a staple to not only hardcore, but to all scenes. Whether it be punk, emo, pop punk, metal, the Nile is a host. The staff is excellent and ensures not only safety of bands but show goers as well. 10/10 will always love Michelle and everyone that has poured their blood, sweat, and tears into this place. More...
The Nile had been an absolute corner stone in underground and emerging music. Sure she is a bit rustic but that is one of the many lovable aspects of the venue. Without this venue many bands would have never got their start let alone began touring, thank you for always being there for every scene. More...
This place is top notch. The Nile Theater has been a place for me to escape the world and see some amazing bands and hangout with some of the realest and greatest people out there. Everyone connected with The Nile is awesome! Much love for this place and the people who staff this venue. More...
Natalie Marie Lo Duca
The Nile has blessed me with countless opportunities to see some of my favorite bands. The venue really goes out of their way to make sure you have a spectacular experience in my ways. Sound crew works with the bands/acts to make sure they are getting the best and most desired sound possible. Ticket and consession people always are accommodating and pleasant to interact with. Security does everything they can to allow the crowd to move how they desire to the music but still stand firm on safety but try to keep the crowd and experience as authentic as it can be. I could go on about how much I love this venue but I think going there and experiencing it yourself will do the job More...
Going to The Nile theater/underground for a show is like going to grandmas house and she's already baked hella cookies and she says you can stay up at watch as many cartoons as you want.
10/10 my favorite place to go.
Stopped in on a Sunday with the family. Just wanted good coffee. The decor is wierd in a good way and the coffee was fantastic. I'll have it again for sure.
We went to the summer movie night and saw the Goonies had a great time I had the ice tea and it was delicious
I love The Nile so much! Great atmosphere, great food, and a wonderful gathering place for creatives in Downtown Mesa.
Great coffees & teas. Awesome service with a smile �
I dream about their avocado toast daily. Oh man. It's so good! I love that this place is all vegan too! =D =D
Brendon Luke Jaramillo
The coffee was really great. The Philly sandwich was super skimpy and basically 2 pieces of white bread with vegan sandwich shreds and pickles. Their chicken sandwich was really awesome. More...
The service honestly wasn't very friendly the day I went, but it wasn't horrible either. I got the buffalo chicken salad, and it was just ok. Could have benefited from some more veggies, or something to make it a little more filling. Overall it isn't a place I would drive out of my way to come to again. More...
Food was solid and had a nice latte. Chill environment that my kids liked as well. The people were really nice as well.
Since collaborating with the Nile theater, people might be confused with the location of the coffee shop/restaurant but it's not too bad. The food itself is very good a little bit on the pricey side though. The environment is very vintage and stylish. Their coffee menu is also splendid. More...
This is the best place ever!! Great coffee drinks! Tasty food and specials! Oh Lord and the baked goods are amazing. I love the atmosphere here and the food is great too. Everything is Vegan which is another win!! Did I mention they do bar drinks at night?! Go to here! More...
Delicious and cute little place. Great for brunch.
Vegan yummy heaven, great place to take kids for a treat and not feel guilty. Very happy to support!
Relaxed atmosphere and beautiful decorations. Food is just too good not to keep trying all the menu items. Their coffee is superb, only time I'll ever buy a large coffee. Baristas are so sweet and it's quickly becoming one of my favorite coffee spots. More...
I really love it here! Food is super good, they have really great sandwiches. Can be a little difficult for the gluten sensitive vegan, like my partner, but sometimes we just brave through the sandwiches anyway! Coffee is really good also. It is so great to have a vegan place like this one! Very much appreciated!! More...
Although the service was incredibly TERRIBLE, the food was amazing, so didn't want my review to reflect the poor service. Hopefully the Manager or Owner will have some training so patrons are greeted, and not treated like they are an inconvenience. It was every person during our visit, so maybe she was just having an awful day? Anyway, food was AMAZING, and definitely worth a try to satisfy your Vegan palate. It should be noted I am NOT vegan or vegetarian, but visited with my BFF (who is), and we both loved the sandwiches we shared. Philly cheese steak & fried chicken sandwich with incredibly tasty blueberry BBQ sauce. Yum!! More...
This place is pretty good! Very cute location. Perfect for visiting all the local shops nearby. Food and coffee was delicious. We had a grilled (Diaya) cheese and Philly. I loved the atmosphere - it was similar to Cornish Pasty. Service was fine. Not very impressive. More...
Don't ever change a thing at this venue! This place is my favorite venue to go to in Arizona �
Nicholas D Baca
Love wrestling here. Btw, if anyone found a pair of pants in the basement. They’re mine.
Vegan win! I love that everything on the menu is vegan & you don't have to worry about substitutes or asking for anything special. You just order your food & eat it, wow imagine a world... I got the philly cheese steak & I've been dreaming of it ever since. I didn't realize they were closing so soon (5 pm, we got there at 4) I would have loved to be able to linger around & had some more beer or finished with a coffee but we didn't want to be a bother to the sweet waitress. My son had the vegan Mac n chz & omg it was so good he ate the entire bowl! We'll definitely stop whenever we are in the area! More...
Antonio De Leon Islas
Awesome place, good show by Mike Herrera, hope they make more shows like this.
Had the iced chai and an americano with white chocolate. They had multiple choices for alternative milk...I had the chai with almond milk. The chai was perfectly sweetened...not too sweet thankfully. The only thing it could've been stronger in was the chai. It was more creamy and milky than anything. The americano was good. They offer quite a few things on their breakfasts and lunch menu. I also noticed their pastries, all of which were labeled vegan. They also offer day old pastries for $1. I didn't get a chance to try the food, but would love to come back one day for it! More...
Really nice home-like feel. Great service and a cool location
Great little coffee house a real coffee house. Fresh brewed coffee in a cup and saucer if staying. Nothing like coffee in a big cup with saucer on the bottom, but that's just my opinion. Visited Volstead when I first arrived in Arizona. They have some new additions like waffle sandwiches which looked delicious. Someone ordered a buffalo chicken waffle sandwich and it was brought out, but no one claimed it. I told the server she could leave it on our table so that it wouldn't go to waste. Urrrrr she wasn't having it, oh well I tried. Scone was had by a friend and enjoyed. My coffee was great, it was a good second visit. More...
Found this place with the help of yelp, and I'm happy I did! Great food, lovely location! I will definitely be back.
There's honestly no other place I'd rather be. The Nile is my home away from home.
Megan Francis Fry
Fantastic people, great production quality. Go see a show here, you won’t be disappointed.
The best staff and environment for shows. Extremely glad Arizona has a place like this.
I have been here a total of two times and found my experiences to be quite pleasant. The food is great and I do enjoy the set up. The prices are also pretty inexpensive and you get a lot of food for what you pay for. My only reason for giving this place four stars is that the first time I went the staff seemed to not care about their job, maybe it was because Friday nights are busy. They barely said anything as I placed my order and went back to my seat. The second time was a great experience though. I will be visiting again! More...
This place is so cool, you walk inside and feel cozy. They have an amazing selection of drinks and vegan food! The only con I would have to include would probably be the time it takes for you to actually get what you order. I've been going there for often for a while now and whenever I order even just a drink it takes no shorter than like 8 minutes. So definitely not a Starbucks lol. This place is cool if you need a quiet place to do work and have a drink and a bagel. More...
Yea for gluten free cookie. Great atmosphere. No decaf- I was there for an evening event. Disappointed not more GF choices.
Hands down best waffles (regular or vegan) I've ever had. You didn't really need syrup and they were super filling. The mock chicken was pretty good and the dish came with syrup and hot sauce, so options. Didn't realize that this is an all vegan place besides a few dairy addition options. I walked in trying to figure out what to order. I asked what was vegan and when they said everything I lit up and did a happy dance They have a great brunch menu Saturday mornings. I've only tried brunch options so far but their whole menu sounds great. So far tried a strawberry scone which they wrapped up beautifully like a little present and chicken and waffles both were delicious. The chicken and waffles looked so fancy and had a mango slice on the side. A+ on presentation. I want to eventually try all five of their brunch options, everything sounds so good! Will be back. More...
A really great coffee shop right downtown Mesa. It's got a really iced relaxed feel, real inviting. I tried a iced chai and an prickly pear lemonade Arnold Palmer, both were delicious. Definitely going to make this place a regular stop! More...
I've eaten here a few times. Prices are great and food is delicious. Atmosphere is cozy.
This is a good place to go when you're Vegan and you didn't plan ahead and you need to go somewhere for lunch! I love it, it has fair prices and the food is good. I have to stop by and try their brunch one weekend, it sounds soooooo good. Haven't had coffee from there yet, but their Lavender Lemonade is really good, just a tiny bit sweet, instead of overwhelmingly sweet. More...
Very cool and swanky coffee shop! I went in for my first time today and was greeted by beautiful live music & vegan pastry samples I will definitely be visiting this place again and again xx
This place is great for vegan food! Its super tasty and there are so many options
Nadia Khalighi Tucker
Best vegan scones, hands down!!! I love this place! Great food, great vibe and mouthwatering delicious vegan food!
I actually loved it for the first-time being there and listening and attending the Crown The Empire Concert on August 1.
Omg yes! It was amazing. Love this place! Will be back again and again. Everything tastes great. I got the blueberry BBQ chicken thing with squash salad. And the cheese was amazing on the cheese and pepper grilled cheese. Very good vegan place! Plus the atmosphere is nice tooEdit: only problem is they never seem to be open... went back many times and they are always closed.... More...
Awesome Place. Great Food, Friendly Service, Beautiful Decor ���
My husband happenned upon this place using the Happy Cow app and it's def a gem in the middle of Mesa. We've returned multiple time and have plans to make a Sat brunch soon, as the menu looks fantastic. Adorable, cozy environment as well. More...
I got the iced almond milk latte with carmel and white chocolate flavoring. It was pretty delicious. It is hard to find a decent almond milk latte, and though it wasn't the best it was well worth the trip. The coffee was nice and strong and stood out in the drink, which I love. The flavoring wasn't too over powering. And I am guilty of being one of those people who love a sweet drink, though, I am trying to cut more sugar out of my life so maybe it was a good thing to not have it so sweet, and so with that I tasted the almond milk flavoring more than I would like. But since I am cutting out diary and sugar I better get used to it, and the drink I got at Volstead is something I could enjoy. In addition, it was empty when we got there at 8:30ish am and so that was nice as well and it was a great setup to do homework or get things done. Plus the music was great. A little bit too loud to have a meeting there, but I am sure they would turn it down if there wasn't too many people there. More...
Long live the Nile Theater. The Nile represents a artery Acting as a life line to the heart beat of Arizonas music scene. Without the Nile There would be a void of missing legends that would slip through the cracks of other more main stream venues.
High quality vegan food (and dairy options) even non-vegans will LOVE! Real coffee drinks with vegan options and unique pastries, locally sourced items, friendly staff, and creative additional special menu items daily. Try the lavender cold brew & thank me for your newest addiction later. Owners are good people who support the Downtown community in every way they possibly can. Exactly the type of local, Indy business I love to support! More...
SO great having a vegan place in (of all places) Downtown Mesa! I LOVE their food! I love the quiet, just-hang-out-with-us atmosphere! Can't say enough good things!
One of the best music venues in Arizona. Always feel at home going to shows here. Great staff. Always does the most for the music scene.
Matthew Channing Cordell
Michelle, and all Mantooth affiliates are amazing, and have transformed the music scene in Mesa to be a place for everyone. That's pretty amazing.
Incredibly rad place, great security, enjoyed the environment!
The venue that has single-handedly kept the Arizona music scene alive.
Best venue in Phoenix. It is the heart beat to our scene.
Absolutely love this venue! Great security, amazing service. More shows please!
The Nile kicks ass. I live 3 hours away and have attended countless shows there and even played a few. Great venue. I feel fortunate to live in a state where it exists.
Every time I have visited this venue it has been a completely postivte experience. The staff is great and the shows do not disappoint.
Slade Antonio Valencia
This is like a second home to me if any. So many memories
Andy Schizo Bates
Small pp fitn well in big building big crowd big pp
Going to The Nile theater/underground for a show is like going to grandmas house and she's already baked hella cookies and she says you can stay up at watch as many cartoons as you want.
Great vegan spot. Not a ton of healthy but a whole lotta flavor and bar type food you may miss from your meat eating days. We had the squaker salad. It was terrific. Not coated in sauce just little diced faux grilled chicken lightly dipped in wing sauce. There was a little vegan ranch drizzled but a cup on side so didn't weigh down the salad. Also ordered the meatball marinara and it was amazing. Sauce was very good and the balls full of Italian flavors. Lastly had the boy blue sandwich with a sweet BBQ sauce. Definitely coming back. More...
It's so nice to see a vegan place in downtown Mesa, but they need to be consistent with their schedule. I stopped by yesterday afternoon, and the store was not open. The Yelp app showed that they were open till 8 pm, but they weren't, so I ended up going to Worth Take Out instead. It was too bad because they have good food here. I've had the Boy Blue Vegan Fried Chicken at Volstead with blueberry BBQ sauce, cole slaw, and cheese in a potato bun, and was looking forward to trying the other items. The menu seems to change also, so be sure to check out their online menu to see what they are serving that day. Closest Light Rail Stop: Country Club & Main Street More...
I loved it, the only reason I only gave it 4 is because of how gift it was..
I've been coming to this coffee/vegan/pub/sandwich shop for the last year and love it. The owners Felisha and Michelle are here pretty much every morning making delicious pastries, prepping for the day and talking Bball which was unexpected and AWESOME! Even though all of their food is vegan it's not something they make a big deal about. They put half and half in my lavender toddy without batting an eye about it. They have great sandwiches, try the "toast of the town" for breakfast or the philly for lunch, I can't believe there's no meat in it.You may have frequented this establishment at night by coming to one of the local downtown shows Mesa has to offer. They've got a good beer selection with local brews and flagstaff brews which reminds me of home. Thanks for the great mornings! More...
The Cesar Salad, with the added chicken was terrific.
Beautiful establishment with delicious food- I was recommend to get the Squawker Texas Ranger... i was not disappointed. Perfect place for vegan options. I look forward to my next trip More...
Tabitha A Dumas
My mom and I came for the first time today and it was lovely. We both had the apple walnut salad with chicken, plus iced tea. All yummy and it's such a cool place in a great area. More...
Awesome place to play. Great sound guy, great staff, and all the good feels of a historic building. Can't wait to get back.
Yum!! This is a gem in Mesa, whether you're a plant-based/vegetarian/vegan foodie or not! I had the Squawker which is a buffalo "chicken and mozzarella" sandwich with a side salad yesterday... So good! And my sometimes soy-sensitive tummy didn't give me any troubles afterwards, which tells me it's quality ingredients. The chicken substitute was not fried, which I like, and the cheese was some of the best I've had. I'm not a fan of ranch , but I actually found myself dipping my sammy into it a couple times. Good stuff! Coffee is also quite good. I only added a splash of coconut milk so I was able to enjoy the full flavor of the beans. The restaurant is clean and adorably vintage in decor, and the ladies that run it are very sweet. There was a brunch special of chicken and waffles that looked amazing (those waffles are huge and fluffy ) I'm aiming to get back out and give that a try next time its on the brunch menu. Two thumbs up!! More...
Amazing everything at Volstead! Food, Friends, entertainment, activities, fun, inviting atmosphere ... comfy, casual! I visit often!
Great place! Love the staff! The food is wonderful!

Was there March 13th to see UNDEFINED open for Enter Shikari & Being as an Ocean. Great lineup, great venue & sound, and a great crowd. Let's do it again !
First time visiting today and I'm so glad I did! I live in Glendale but was visiting Mesa to take my dog for a wellness vet visit and decided I wanted to see if any vegan restaurants were nearby. The location is cute with murals and statues decorating the street and the inside of VPH has a cool pub vibe. I really liked the aesthetics and the person on staff was really nice! I got The Boy Blue and a donut and cupcake to go. So, sooo good! All of it!! I'll definitely be back whenever I find myself in Mesa again. �� More...
Coffee is strong and good, the vegan donuts are to die for. Great location, it is attached to the Nile theater, in the heart of downtown Mesa.
If you see a show done by the Hades crew at this place you are in for a treat. 10/10
Was a good experience. Would deffiently go again. Looking for a laid back place right here is that spot.
Nice atmosphere and great selection for vegetarians, but I was a bit disappointed by the sandwich I ordered. Salad was great though!
I love this place. Teamed up with Hades and it couldn't be better. Staff is amazing!
Glad to see downtown revitalized! This place is great inside & has good coffee. A nice place to relax & I hope it stays around.
Stopped in with my family to chill with a beer and iced tea, love the eclectic vibe of this place, refreshments aren't bad either.
This coffee shop has great coffee, but more importantly, if you want a coffee shop with some buzz but not quite the noise level of Sip, Cartel, or other highly frequented coffee shops in the area, this is the place for you!
That was my first time at the Nile Theatre. It was good!
i like what i have seen there. is there tax on the phx tickets? or is it just $15 at thr door? see u tommorow
Great venue, lighting decent and sound quality is better than previous years. Seriously need to install a photo pit for press! So we don't disrupt the audience.... Think about it. More...
One of my favorite places to hang out and grab a bite in Downtown Mesa! Great vibe, wonderful staff, vegan food and great coffee and adult beverage choices! Attached to the World Famous Nile Theatre Volstead Public House brings some good vibe to Downtown a Mesa! I love it! Check out their lavender iced coffee or nitro coffee ! More...
I work in the area so I come to Volstead often and I am grateful for a place to have meetings and grab a bite that impresses every time. The atmosphere itself is cool and comfortable, especially on that rare Arizona rainy day. Volstead has that classic coffee shop feel with a bit of that trendy vibe added in. Their coffee is on point and definitely will pick you up. I get the house-made toddy, sometimes regular, sometimes lavender. Yum! The food is all vegan and it definitely doesn't taste like it. It's amazing. They do a great job of making what should taste like nothing, taste delicious. I'm not a vegan so I don't go out of my way to find vegan joints, but I really do enjoy all of their sandwich options immensely, especially the Squaker Texas Ranger. They even offer a unique selection of cocktails and craft brews and ciders. The place is clean and friendly. All of their staff is really nice. The bathrooms are always clean and stocked which is a huge deal to me. All in all, it's one of my favorite places to go to meet a colleague or a friend or just grab a bite. More...
Great atmosphere, coffee and food. The soyrizo breakfast sandwich is AMAZING.
I've been here several times and everything is good! They have a solid beer selection. Every sandwich I've had has been tasty. Their coffee is quality and they offer handcrafted pastries! Another win for Downtown Mesa!! More...
My boyfriend and I stopped in about a month ago while exploring Mesa. The lady at the counter told us, "You know it's all vegan, right?" Which was exactly why we went in! She was super nice and the food was heavenly. If we're back in Mesa this place is a must! More...
Love the lavender toddy!Also really good chai here....Love the vegan options here....Love the vibe here!Ordered the squawker Texas ranger sandwich (vegan buffalo chicken sandwich with arugala on top of a rustic crunchy bread ) with a side of sweet potatoes and black bean salad....all delicious!!!Service was a tad slow but the gave us $1.00 off cards for our next visit.....Will definitely be back.... More...
Vegan grilled cheese sandwiches? Sure, I'll try anything! I've actually been trying to cut down on my meat intake anyways and decided to try Volstead out. The name is interesting, it brings to mind similar sounding names with "Vol" in the title. If I am in a silly mood perhaps I will eat at Volstead while listening to Volbeat after test driving a Volkswagon one of these days!I tried out the Copper State sandwich and a regular size iced latte with coconut milk. The sandwich comes with a side- I went with the kale and cranberry salad. The sandwich was excellent. The bread was lightly toasted and provided a lovely textural crunch with the soft gooey cheese and diced green chiles. The flavors were a perfect complement to each other. The salad was fresh, but underdressed and thus a bit bland to me. The latte was smooth and rich, with a chocolaty undertone. Service was swift and friendly.If I'm in the mood for sandwiches and coffee in downtown Mesa, this is the place to be! More...
My husband had their regular toddy and I had the lavender toddy both were delicious. The breakfast sandwich was good. I was surprised by the vegan options and wished there had been some more real meat options on the menu.
This little gem totally caught my eye as I drove down main street one day for lunch. I wish this establishment was transported to central phoenix so that I could take advantage of it more! They have cute classic sodas (peach is delish) , coffee, grilled cheese sandwiches, and the ambience is wonderful. I went in the early afternoon and it seemed to be the perfect spot to go and get some work done or have a meeting. They have wifi and plenty of seating. Decor is on point beautiful and the place just feels very warm and inviting. Will definitely return when I'm in the area next. More...

Hubby and I had a fun day out at the Mesa Art show and topped it off here with excellent vegan sandwiches and hand made cream sodas that were out of this world! Loved the atmosphere and the friendly service too! More...
First time here.. Tried the vegan philly cheese steak and all I can say, it was DELICIOUS!! The vegan cheese was great and the service as well! Thank you
The Philly is awesome! I wish this place was closer to where I live or work. Very friendly service.
I am not in Mesa often, but I will always make a point to stop in to Volstead! I had to be in the area for a work errand and stopped in to grab a cup of joe. I was treated to one of the best cups of coffee I have ever had! I have since tried the food, and honestly wish I was in the area more often, excellent! I will volunteer for any more work errands to Mesa for more chances to stop in, thank you Volstead! More...
It was a very nice cafe with some interesting vegetarian options. I'm an omnivore and liked the soyrizo breakfast bagel and coffee. They did have dairy for the coffee upon request.If you have to have meat you may want to eat elsewhere. More...
I don't know how I've passed this place without knowing it existed, it is very convenient for my lifestyle and will be reunited with the vegan goodness soon enough!
Coffee is amazing. Lovely atmosphere. I'm not a vegan nor a vegetarian, but the food is really good.
I went here with a friend today and it was delicious & amazing. I have not eaten at a "wow" place in a while where every bite was to be savored. Even the drink I had was equally amazing.I got the opal grilled cheese sandwich. Everything served is vegan which I love, although they do have regular cheese if that's the preference. I just tried the vegan, and I cannot get over how good it was. I love a solid grilled cheese place, and this one is close to me so I will definitely come again. I also tried the "Pick me up" drink (good name) which perfectly served it's purpose, that was also excellent.The design/area was cool and dimly lit. It was a Sat night so you could also hear the show playing next door which I liked as it added to the scene. More...
This place was great the stage was great it was a great show for the 5th annual redcon 1 show
Going here started off partially because of a lack of options/need of variation but also to see if the other reviews were accurate. So far I have visited on a Second Friday (Mesa's monthly art walk), while attending Mesa Maker's Fest, Volstead's karaoke night, and as recently as this past Friday for their "St. Patty's Day Feast". As previously stated part of my motivation for going so many times was to see consistency of service.During my times visiting there was hardly any wait (less than five minutes! seriously!) for my orders or any of the other guests (despite how busy they were!). Cleanliness has been perfect every single time. Everything from the in-house baked goods to the sandwiches (and the crazy awesome St. Pattys Feast!!!!) blew me away. They have had creative sandwiches and side pairings as well as sweet & savory options for scones, muffins, or bagels. On top of all this the prices are great and the service is even better. A must visit especially if you understand the importance of supporting local businesses and are looking to break away from the monotony of the places you usually eat at. More...
A great spot on the emerging Mesa Main Street thoroughfare. I had an interpretation of a Chicago Dog. The dog itself was outstanding. They make their pickles! High quality foods and cold nitro brew on tap. Friendly staff. Word has it a nano brewery will open 3 doors down further enhancing this revitalized neighborhood. All hail public transit, it's having a profound effect on Phoenix and the surrounding cities like Mesa. Lots of other good food items, too. Whole takeaway rotisserie chickens. Fair prices! More...
I went the night of the Loreena Mckennitt concert. There was only one person working and she managed to pull off the influx of people with charm and grace. My sandwich was so deliciously perfect. I'm sorry that I didn't get her name. More...

Overall great venue. Staff and security are always great, never had a problem with my Will Call tickets or anything such as. Would definitely recommend.
I walk to Volstead every Saturday and Sunday morning for coffee and doughnuts. Somedays I eat breakfast and lunch there! The atmosphere is so relaxing and the staff is really courteous! More...
I finally got to try this place recently. The food was delicious! And the ambience of the place was really cool. Unfortunately, we won't be coming back here. The man at the counter told us there are no high chairs, which makes it close to impossible for us to enjoy a meal with our small children. Definitely had to knock off a star for that. I'm surprised such a casual restaurant wouldn't be accommodating to families. More...
I really like this place, they have sandwiches which are very good, they just introduced a breakfast menu which I'm excited to try. Its close to home so I'm here all the time to study and the staff are so friendly, I also love that they have a latte of the day. More...
I just had the very best toasted bagel sandwich that I can recall. And it was vegan!!! It's called the Copper State Bagel Sandwich. Friendly service and a good location in downtown Mesa!! I'll be back. More...
Calm, relaxing vibe. Picture brick wall with hard wood floors-music playing in the background. I got a Chai tea latte with soy milk (they also have almond milk), the hubby got an iced coffee and wilber( everything bagel with ham/cheese(vegan cheese available)! Everything was tasty! Staff was helpful and very nice. We will be back! I noticed they sell canned beer as well. More...
Good vegan food and drinks!! Coffee or alcohol, how can you go wrong!
great vegan food and good beer/coffee!! love this place
Had a great time eating hot wings, drinking beer and singing Karaoke.
Yeah the sound sucks and that should be fixed but I actually don't mind the lack of A/C. Everyone says the staff is rude but I've never had a rude encounter any of the times I've gone. Maybe it's how you act towards them? I don't know. Along with the sound my other complaint is the lack of anything non alcoholic other than water and a couple of sodas, this because it's a 6+ venue and I took my sister and even if we had eaten a full meal before going combined with the length of the shows I'd like there to be a little vending machine or something. Other than that it's not a beautiful venue but it's good and really personal so I like it. More...
The volstead public house is a very friendly place to go for a quick bite. All of their sandwiches are vegetarian and can be made with vegan cheese. We got two vegan sandwiches and were very pleased with them. They are a bit small so they're not filling but they were excellent. Also the staff is very friendly. Overall, a nice place to sit and enjoy a cruelty free sandwich. More...
Absolutely amazing performances tonight!!! Love it
The baked goods from Lo-Fi were better and I miss having the guitar to play while I waited for my drinks and food. I definitely miss them now that Volstead is in it's place. That said, Volstead has some amazing grilled cheese sandwiches and creative drinks. It's now a great place to go for lunch instead of just morning coffee. More...
Turn the mics up so I can hear the singer for more then a couple seconds , other then that it was great
Alyssa M. Esquer
Very Clean. The girls are very courteous. The coffee is good. The bagels are good! I wish they had wheat though! :) But I am sure they will add more choices as business picks up. They have vegetarian and vegan options which is nice. :) Thank you so much girls! It won't be the last time. More...
The muffin I got was amazing as was the coffee. Cute little shop. They had fast friendly service. I'll admit that I went there because I wanted to support a lady-owned business. :) I am excited to try their other food and will definitely recommend to coworkers looking for a lunch spot or morning coffee stop. More...
I'm not even vegan and I enjoyed the Philly sandwich. They have a great variety and friendly staff. I will definitely be back.
Our visit to Volstead was nothing less than stellar. We randomly came here out of curiosity and I must say, we will be back. I had an apple fritter (vegan) that was second to none, my boyfriend had a perfect grilled cheese (also vegan) and the employees are very personable. You can get dairy alternatives but upon request which is a first for me, the only unfortunate thing is that there are only 5 stars available. More...
This hip little coffee shop is perfect for downtown mesa. Awesome drinks! The nitro coffee hits the spot and its about time mesa got some good vegetarian and vegan sandwiches that are healthy as well as delish! This is my favorite spot!!
Chill vibe. Delicious food! I'm going there right now. The Squawker Texas Ranger sandwich is legit!
Coffee is good, the baristas are nice, and the space is beautiful! I just wish they would turn their music down--it was glaringly (I mean super duper) loud at 7:30am, and that is hard to handle when I have an aching hangover!
Modest mouse lullabied me through a hectic lunch time; food with texture, color and flavor...awwwww...yes!! Repeat offender! Great find! Solid spot! Thank you!
It was a good venue .started a little early other than that great acoustics, like the two stages and finally they can serve beer yea
Modest, clean, cozy vibe. The girls who run it are kind and everything on the menu is amazing. I try to grab a coffee every other day and today I got a new card in the mail, I called to activate it and didn't realize it took 24 hours for it to go thru. I ordered a coffee and the card declined, the ladies were nice enough to give me a coffee anyways. I was so embarrassed and they made me feel really grateful to have a local business that really takes care of us downtownees. I'll be stopping by for a coffee tomorrow and give a BIG tip for helping me out! More...
I'm so obsessed with this place. The sandwiches are my new fave and just a cool little spot.
So glad to see this type of place on main in downtown Mesa! Food was great (we had non vegan options). Staff is super friendly. Also had a cocktail, which was delicious, but pricey for its size (super tiny with a lot of ice) and the plastic cup in which it came. Would definitely come back, but not for the cocktails. More...
All their food is either vegan or can be made vegan. An awesome addition to downtown Mesa!
Place has a nastalgic feel, love it! Food menu looked great, donuts were amazingly authentic. Coffee was flavorful and smoothe. I recommend the nitro with no sweet, no cream for you plain coffee drinkers. The cocktail menu was enticingly unique, if I were there later in the day I would have indulged. Overall great place, can't wait to come back and try one of those gourmet grilled cheeses. More...
One of my new favorite spots! I'm not a huge coffee person but their cold brew nitro is AMAZING!! The staff is so attentive and the customer service is great. The hubby and I both got grilled cheeses and they were delicious! I would definitely recommend the green chili. Can't wait to go back and try more of what they have to offer! The vibe was great we just sat and chilled for a few hours. Some great people watching. More...
Hell ya! Hell ya! Hell ya! Hell ya! Hell ya! Hell ya!
I like this place came here while waiting for a concert. Good chai and it's not super packed with hipsters like most coffee places.
Delicious vegan and vegetarian options! Their grilled cheese is amazing! Nitro Cold Brew is on tap and it is tasty. I am so excited for this place!
This place is awesome! The staff is friendly, the food is great, the coffee is delicious and the cocktails are on point! The decor and whole vibe of the place is wonderful. I'm so excited to find a place in downtown Mesa with vegan grilled cheese! I would highly recommend and will definitely be back. More...
Pleasantly surprised with this little shop. It's so inviting; a wonderful place to meet with friends for some of their fabulous cocktails. Will be back soon!
This place is awesome!!! Amazing coffee and probably the best grilled cheese sandwich I've ever had, and that includes grandma's. The owners are amazing, and the staff on top of it! Can't wait to return!!! More...
AMAZING PLACE. One of my favorite places to play.
Enjoyed the venue last night, show was mostly acoustic so the sound was balanced perfect, not too loud. Everyone very cool that worked there, nice selection of craft beers and beers in the coffee shop was a nice surprise.

Always love my fam at the Nile. Only issue is I seriously you suggest you stop fucking around and invest some money into a better sound equipment for both up and downstairs. Other than that, always rock solid! More...
Favorite venue in Arizona

Just saw parkway drive and upon a burning body, venue was homely. Close stage slim to nun seperation from the crowd. Amazing
Good place to see a show but the security kinda sucks they gotta tone down a bit
