Copper Star Coffee is Locally Owned and Operated

The door of a black safe is painted with Copper Star Coffee and Wm. and Ginger Sandweg ProprietersCopper Star Coffee owner, Bill Sandweg, is not content to sit in the office and run things behind the scenes. So Bill is in the trenches with the rest of his staff. On any given day he can be seen in front of the stove frying up eggs for the breakfast bagel sandwich, or greeting customers as he runs the register. And on many occasions he’s performing barista duties.

Having a local connection definitely makes a difference as evidenced by the wonderful staff, many who have worked at Copper Star for years. Of course, what makes this place a truly local destination are the fantastic customers new and old. Some of Copper Star’s customers have been with CSC since the beginning, 14 years ago.

Dog Friendly Patio

A pink dog bowl with drawn pictures of dogs and cats sits on the patio at Copper Star Coffee.Dog friendly patios are an important part of Phoenix life. That’s why we welcome your friendly dog kid on our patio. It’s open all year, rain or shine, cold or hot. During the summer we’ve got misters and during the winter we light a fire in our custom fire pit.

Our dog friendly patio is one of the many wonderful things that makes CSC a true neighborhood coffee shop.

Friendly PSA: Do not leave your dog in your car with the windows closed, it’s illegal. And when the temperature is 70º degrees outside, it can be 100º in your car, even with the windows cracked! Keep the air conditioning running and still get your CSC fix by coming through our drive-thru.

One of Copper Star Coffee's big Rice Krispies® Treats on a plate.

Bakery Staples: Homemade Rice Krispies® Treats

Rice Krispies® Treats are the memories of childhood. They are nostalgia—one of the first things we made as a kid. We remember standing on a stool so we could reach the bowl on the counter. Stirring, stirring, stirring until it was time to press the still warm treat into the pan. Then waiting, waiting, waiting for it to cool just enough to cut it into squares so we could finally eat it. Sigh.

Our homemade Rice Krispies® Treats are available fresh each morning while supplies last. And, just like our honking brownies, these treats are BIG.

Italian Soda-licious

Grape Italian Soda with CreamItalian sodas–those delicious, colorful, bubbly concoctions are just the non-coffee treat you need this summer. And we have a variety of flavors from which to choose, including sugar free. (Check out our flavors here.)

Never tried an Italian soda? Well, you’re in for a treat. They’re delicious, if we do say so ourselves.

A little history. Despite the name, Italian sodas were created in San Francisco, California. Modeled after the American soda, they offer a larger selection of flavored syrups. They are made by adding your favorite flavor to club soda and then topped with cream (optional). Yum!
