4700 N 12th St Suite 107, Phoenix, AZ 85014
Whether you’re looking for the perfect cappuccino (tons of people say you can find it here) or something special like the Esso Special Soda — made with chocolate, soda water, and espresso — you can bet that your time at Esso will be rife with opportunity for great flavors in picturesque servings this National Cappuccino Day!
4501 N 32nd St, Phoenix, AZ 85018
You can experience a proper cappuccino here at Provision, or you can try something a little different with the Champurrado Cappuccino — featuring chocolate, cinnamon, and other flavors reminiscent of its Mexican-rooted inspiration. And, if you’re looking for a cocktail to have alongside your delicious coffee, Provision happily makes both — something for the whiskey lovers and such, and something for the coffee lovers. It doesn’t get better than that!
2330 E McDowell Rd, Phoenix, AZ 85006
This coffeeshop sports Mexican-inspired beverages of various types, including signature drinks like the Canelita and Mazapan lattes. Their spin on the café au lait, called Cafe con Leche, uses sweet evaporated milk instead, but their cappuccino is both classic and a huge crowd-pleaser. If you’re looking to take part in something with delicious foam, milk, and espresso, this is definitely the place.
1020 N 1st Ave, Phoenix, AZ 85003
While you can always enjoy a cappuccino with almond milk, whole milk, and so on at Fair Trade Cafe, there’s another spin on the classic beverage that you might look into: the Chagaccino, made with the popular non-coffee energy booster, the Chaga mushroom. These mushrooms make for a flavorful drink already, but by adding cacao, cinnamon, and other ingredients, you can have a hot or iced foamy concoction that’ll give regular cappuccinos a run for their money!

However, if you’re looking for a barista to prepare you the classic cappuccino with steady hands and a delicious end product, this is yet another coffee house you can trust for exactly that. Check them out, and you might just find yourself ordering more than one drink just to try them. We don’t blame you one bit.
