Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! Going out for dinner with your sweetie is a great tradition to start or continue…provided of course that you can decide on where to eat! Fortunately we have some more great suggestions for a wide variety of good eats in the Phoenix area. These are also great to check out if you’re not from Phoenix but you plan on visiting in the future!
La Grande Orange – 40th Street in Arcadia
This little place is…well it’s a lot of things. On the north end it’s a cute grocery store with amazing peanut butter pie, key lime pie, sandwiches, chai lattes, gelato, and so much more. But the next part of the building is a pizzeria that’s busy even on weeknights, and on the southern end there’s a nice little bar with some amazing scotches and spirits for all tastes! This grocery-pizzeria-bar is well worth the trip, and with outdoor seating, or classic restaurant seating this place is a crowd pleaser no matter what you’re in the mood for.
Homemade cookies and homemade ice-cream turned into sandwiches with toppings. If you’re in the mood for decadent, desperate, dietary wickedness, look no further than the Baked Bear! With donuts, brownies, and cookies (such as gluten-free chocolate chip, red velvet, peanut butter, and snickerdoodle), and ice-cream flavors like salted caramel fudge, bear batter, and strawberry cheesecake, there is definitely a combination that will meet your needs.
Hash Kitchen – Scottsdale Road in Scottsdale
In the mood for a Valentine’s breakfast? The Hash Kitchen in Scottsdale is a real treat with classic dishes like Corned Beef Hash, and delightful specialties such as their Cannoli Donuts. The Huevos Rancheros Hash is particularly excellent, but their pancakes, French toast, eggs and more are equally tempting! Portion sizes are good and this place lives up to the ratings so be sure to check it out.
