Heading down to Phoenix in a few days and am starting to panic as my internet research is coming up short on coffee and vegetarian-friendly recommendations! We're a party of 3 - two vegetarian adults and one vegetarian five year old who are extreme foodies - the food part of a vacation is just as important as activities and local history. We're also all hopeless tex-mex/mex food fiends. Authentic or bust.
We'll be hanging out around Sun City / Peoria / Glendale (yup, baseball) and have a rental car, but aren't really trying to drive an hour for a cup of joe. So that rules out Village Roastery and puts Press Coffee on the bubble.
We'd like to try one or two really good "native" cuisine restaurants - it appears to be sonoran/tex-mex type food?
So far we've got Tuck Shop, St. Francis, Citizen Public House, Gallo Blanco, Eliana's, and Maizie's on the list (yays? nays?) and will check out Cartel Coffee Lab when we're downtown. I'd love a slew of recommendations to try out!
Thanks so much :)
