“We’re so excited to be in the heart of the business scene with this location,” said Director of Marketing Shea Neill. “Morning Squeeze is a neighborhood spot first and foremost, so we really listened to what the Downtown community wanted and needed to start their days. We know you can’t just cookie-cutter our brunch vibe and we’re looking forward to sharing some special touches we created just for this spot.” 

For the urban environment of Downtown Phoenix, Morning Squeeze adapted the 3,400 square foot space to include an indoor-outdoor bar, a dedicated grab & go area for easy take away, a wrap around patio and ample outlets and connectivity for people to meet and work.

Signature neon sign

A rocking '70s and '80s playlist, a version of its signature Lovin’ Touchin’ Squeezin’ neon sign and a custom mural and light fixtures by local artist Jayarr Steiner round out the setting. 

The doors of the Downtown Phoenix Squeeze will open at 7 a.m. on Friday, September 17. Neil says they will commemorate the new location with a ribbon cutting at 9 a.m. The location will be open daily from 7 a.m. – 2 p.m. 

Morning Squeeze opened its first location in the heart of Old Town Scottsdale in 2013 and a second spot off Mill Avenue in Downtown Tempe in 2018.

The Arizona-owned concept specializes in classic breakfast favorites like Biscuits & Gravy, Chicken & Waffles and Benedicts alongside modern brunch dishes like the Hangover Bowl and Blackened Salmon Salad and a range of creative cocktails and coffee drinks.

Its locations all have dog-friendly patios as well as a Tail Wagger menu just for Fido.

When I started medical transition at 20 years old, it was very difficult to get the care I needed for hormone replacement therapy because there are very few providers trained in starting hormones for trans people, even though it’s very similar to the hormones that we prescribe to women in menopause or cisgender men with low testosterone.

I hope more providers get trained in LGBTQ+ healthcare, so they can support patients along their individual gender journey, and provide the info needed to make informed decisions about their body. I’ve personally seen my trans patients find hope and experience a better quality of life through hormone replacement therapy.
