Flagstaff Community Farmers Market
Another cool thing to do during your stay in Flagstaff is to head to the local farmer’s market to pick up some fresh produce, make some local dishes for your guests, and celebrate small businesses in the area. Head to the City Hall Parking Lot any Sunday between May and the end of October to grab a quick bite to eat for breakfast, sit outside and enjoy the warm summer breeze, and try some of the regional delicacies. We love coming here for a strong iced coffee in the summertime between 8 am and 12 pm!
Yoga on the Lawn
For those who want to de-stress and decompress during their vacation away from the struggles of daily life, work, and school obligations, head to Yoga on the Lawn every Saturday between early May and Labor Day to stretch and strengthen your muscles. You can easily walk to the County Courthouse Lawn on San Francisco Street from any one of our properties to go for a nice stroll, or yoga session, and maybe grab a coffee in town before heading back home.
Sunday Funday! at the Beer Garden
Head to the Beer Garden on June 11th between 4 pm and 6 pm to laugh and sing along to some entertainment, live music, and performances at Dark Sky Brewing Company. Grab a craft beer cold pint from the bar, find your seat, and check out the local artists and talented musicians who want to make you laugh, sing along, and have a good time with friendly locals.
Grab a Bite to Eat at One of the Many Breakfast Spots
Flagstaff is known for its food and drink. There are tons of craft breweries, dinner spots that are perfect for date nights, and take-away food that you will talk about for ages. Another popular thing to do for locals and tourists alike is to find the best breakfast nooks and brunch spots in the city to head to on a Saturday morning after a night out or on a Wednesday early morning before going hiking.
One of our favorite go-to spots during the summer season is Tourist Home Cafe on San Francisco Street in Flagstaff, Arizona. We recommend getting one of their filling breakfast burritos, like the burrito with scrambled eggs, bacon, potatoes, green chile sauce, salsa verde, and queso fresco for a cheesy kick. You can also try the chicken and biscuits with fried chicken, buttery house biscuits, country gravy, and eggs made your way! For those who want something a bit sweeter to start the day, you can’t go wrong with French toast with berries, whipped cream, powdered sugar, and cinnamon. Pair any one of these dishes with a “Brunch Booze” cocktail, like the Ruby Mimosa, with freshly squeezed grapefruit and sparkling wine.
Another cool spot to check out for a hearty dish of eggs made your way or a sweet treat; we love going to Over Easy Flagstaff on Woodlands Road. Open early from 6:30 am; this is a great quick stop on your way to one of the nearby hiking trails in Flagstaff and the surrounding area.
We recommend getting the chilaquiles, a Tex-Mex-inspired dish featuring two eggs, corn tortilla chips, chicken, cheese, pico de gallo, sour cream, green onion, and your choice of sauce. Another fan favorite is the Wolfpack, one of the infamous dishes of the restaurant that features two eggs, bacon, cheese, crispy hash browns, sausage gravy, ranchero sauce, and fried chicken. Talk about a filling feast!
For those who want to go to a local neighborhood bakery that is a no-frills and relaxing spot to get a hearty brunch dish or a quick to-go coffee and pasty, then look no further! Wildflower Bread is a quick stop-over joint at the Sawmill, featuring a protein breakfast bowl with toast as a healthy start to the day, featuring sunny-side-up eggs, spinach, tomatoes, scallions, quinoa, and lean sausage.
