Downtown and Fair Trade Cafe Adventure

I recently found out that there was a free shuttle that took me from Arizona State's Tempe Campus to Arizona State's Downtown Campus. So... I went!


I find the Downtown Campus to be fresh, new and exciting as opposed to the Tempe one. Look, tall buildings.


They even have something you don't really see in all of Arizona. Historical buildings.


There's something about it all that just looks so modern. Unlike the rest of Arizona.


There's that Civic Park "Jellyfish"!


My main goal in taking this adventure was to find the Fair Trade Cafe! And I spotted it!


Interestingly enough, the area is secluded and hidden. At least, it was for me. You had to go down these stairs.


I had a nice berry ice tea.


I also got a sandwich. It was overpriced, but really good. They even gave me a cookie! Overall, I have to say I really liked the Fair Trade Cafe. I would never go there again just to eat there like I did this time but if you're in the neighborhood, I think it's a perfectly acceptable place to stop by and grab a bite. Of course... they are known for their coffee and I didn't get to try that. Perhaps one more trip.

  6. That sandwich looks so delicious.. I just had a "peanut butter" and "chocolate" protein bar for lunch that did nothing but make me angry and wish I had no tongue.

    Your downtown is super quiet.

    Beautiful buildings by the way :)

  14. It's fun to make excursions like this. You frequently see unexpected things.

    I have family in Tucson and visit them every year. It always surprises me, coming from New York, to see people don't have green grassy lawns in front of their homes.

  29. Awesome jellyfish structure! I've always secretly wanted to live in Arizona or somewhere nearby. It's way too cold where I live. :/
