Ah, Friday. A perfect day to telecommute. My favorite place to telecommute? Gold Bar Espresso Coffee Shop. A great little independent that has been around Tempe for 6 years in the current location, plus another 12 at their previous location when they were in a bank building across the street. They serve Allann Brothers coffee, from Eugene, Oregon. I love this quaint little shop, and the owners and atmosphere set it apart from being just another place to drink coffee. The stained glass hangings, artwork, bright colors and table lamps invite you to stay awhile, and the customers - who are all regulars - make you feel like you're hanging out with family and friends. And I got a lot of work done!
