i posted on gogobot, “Heading to Phoenix for a wedding next weekend – what MUST I eat??” and got a ton of great responses – and Arcadia Farms was definitely among more than one recommendation. yay for gogobot, the greatest trip planning site, ever. (shameless plug, i digress…) let’s move on.
it is the cutest place. very napa-esque. each room is decorated differently, in a shabby chic sort of way. then there’s a courtyard full of linen umbrellas and misters, and another room out back, like a sunroom. already, i died on the walk in.
we ordered some mimosas to start as we peruse the menu, unable to choose dishes…and snacked on some strawberry scones while we decided. the menu boasts a wide range for brunch, omelettes, crepes, croque-monsieurs…what to choose!
our server was extremely helpful, saying the cobbler was her favorite…good, that’s what i was thinking.
so we ordered cobblers and quesadillas, mimosas and muffins. and everyone was delighted and it was a fabulous start to a fabulous saturday.
ingredients were super fresh, portion sizes were perfect, everything was exactly what brunch should be.
apparently they have half-off wine and drink specials on certain days and an amazing lunch menu as well. i introduced FOUR locals to this place, and i’m sure they’ll go back without me so i can live vicariously through them.
okay i’m obsessed. and then i got home and checked the website and i’m even more obsessed! the site is clean and pretty with recipes and the same layout as this blog. coincidence? soul mates? i think so.
