"Patience is a virtue, perseverance pays off and the dream is the driver."
The journey up Mount Lemmon is something special. You’ve got beautiful views on both sides of the vehicle while traveling along its curvy path — enough to get you pumped about getting to the top. However, if you need a pick-me-up on the way back down, there will soon be a new option.
Mt. Lemmon Coffee Bean is currently getting things in motion as it prepares to open up at 12925 N. Sabino Canyon Parkway in the Spring of 2022.
The coffee shop will be owned and operated by Summerhaven resident Debbie Weatherly, who used to run the former Mt. Lemmon Cafe before it closed in 2009.
Mt. Lemmon Coffee Bean shared the following on Facebook:
“My name is Deb Weatherly and Mt. Lemmon has been my home for well over a decade. Over the years I have seen and heard about the need for a coffee shop. Now after all those years, the Mt Lemmon Coffee Bean is becoming a reality. Patience is a virtue, perseverance pays off and the dream is the driver.”
Once construction is complete, the new coffee shop will be nestled near the new Mount Lemmon Hotel, serving as both a walk-up coffee counter for guests, a daily spot for those who live up on the mountain, and a refreshing beverage for the folks driving up for a day trip.
Keep an eye out for updates on the menu, official opening date, and other information as we near the Grand Opening.
Mt. Lemmon Coffee Bean will be located at 12925 N. Sabino Canyon Parkway. For more information, follow Mt. Lemmon Coffee Bean on Facebook.
