What to Eat in Flagstaff

The dining scene in Flagstaff is influenced, in part, by its college-student cohort. You'll find an array of budget-friendly pizza and burger restaurants scattered near campus, which is located in the center of the city. Students at Northern Arizona University keep a lot of these establishments busy, but travelers should try to drink in the ambiance and the coffee at Macy's European Coffeehouse & Bakery and grab a slice at Oregano's Pizza Bistro – two popular spots near NAU. Other nearby restaurants like Cottage Place, which serves filet mignon and sea scallops, and Coppa Café, which brings "a taste of Europe in Flagstaff," offer more of a fine dining experience. Other local favorites include Satchmo's for barbecue and Delhi Palace for Indian.

When it comes to drinks, craft beer is a big deal in Flagstaff. In fact, there's even a Flagstaff Ale Trail that guides travelers on a bike or chauffeured tour of a handful of the best breweries in the city, including the beloved Mother Road Brewing Company.  Wanderlust Brewing Company and Flagstaff Brewing Company are also popular among locals and travelers alike.
