Carol's Coffee ShopCarol Mongan of Oro Valley decided her neighbors needed a friendly place to hang out, so she recently opened a coffee shop at 11143 N. La Cañada Drive. Carol makes everything from scratch--salads, lemon bars and scones--and uses Arivaca's Gadsden coffee and espresso by Illy. Open daily from 7 a.m.; hours vary, so call 742-2921. With no clock on the premises, Carol closes shop when she feels like it.
