Worlds best coffee, worlds largest pipe organ and pizza

Monday March 3rd

Not much going on today, we spent most of it outside. Sometimes it is just great doing nothing. Besides, anytime you can take your morning coffee outside it’s a bonus day.

Tuesday March 4th

Today we made a quick trip to Walmart to pick up some supplies. On the way we saw our favorite coffee house, Dutch Bros. Last summer we discovered Dutch Bros coffee in Oregon and northern California. We looked for them as we traveled back to Minnesota but never saw them again. We did not know they have a couple locations here in the Phoenix area, so it was a pleasant surprise to say the least.


We first heard about this fun pizza place in Mesa last year and today we decided we would give it a try. I have attached their web site if you care to read about them, it is too hard for me to put into words what it is http://www.organstoppizza.com/the-pipe-organ/history/   In addition to the entertainment, which is the reason people go there, the pizza was very good and when in the Mesa area should not be missed.



What a morning

It wasn't coffee outside all day, a beer on the patio hit the spot.

The fruit tree at our door smells fantastic

                             Order your pizza as you enter 

Step down the line and order your drink

Get a table in the main room or head upstairs to the balcony

 The lights go down the music begins and the organ appears from below


It continues to rise and rotate

 He has a lot to control

The entire back wall is two stories of organ pipes and the remainder of the room and ceiling is covered with instruments and lights all controlled by the organist. At times, when he really cranks it, the entire room will vibrate from the music.
