Eat Here!

These are my fave restaurants in Phoenix, most really close to Zoe and the Bitty Bungalow. My guests have enjoyed these recommendations for years now. Hope you do too.
Beautiful build-out and wonderful patio. The only true croissant you'll find in Phoenix. Best sandwich around. Owner is a neighborhood resident.

Whenever my mom comes to town, we eat at Gadzooks at least twice. It's that good. Whether you love slow braised meat or are a vegetarian, you will have very happy tastebuds here. Locally owned.

You better know the address because there isn't a sign on the door. Just to the left of the hardware store. Best huevos rancheros I've ever had. Also, the most generous mimosas you'll find. You won't find many tourists here, it's strictly a local spot...but now you know.

We have to go to Gallo Blanco on a regular basis just so I can have their veggie chilaquiles​. OMG. Amazing! Fresh, warm and well-salted chips paid perfectly with the salsas. You can choose from indoor or outdoor dining on some impressive patios.

Fili-B's is a classic in Phoenix. The Country Breakfast Burrito (eggs, potatoes and cheese) is my absolute fave. This place is the opposite of fancy but what do you expect for a place that's open 24 hours a day and has a 2am rush? You can go inside, but this place is really set up to be a drive-through. Also, on my yellow cheese vs. white cheese Mexican food scale, this place is rated yellow cheese.

The fries are cooked in duck fat. They are stupid good. My other fave menu item is the black bean burger. Perfection!!! They have a large outdoor patio with good vibes.

Groceries and such

When you need to shop, these are your best bets. Sunshine Market is a 1/2 block away and Safeway is the closest​ large grocer.
I don't think Sunshine has ever NOT had something I needed last minute. From milk and cookies to chili powder and chili beans in the winter, Sunshine's always taking care of us. Want a six-pack? Head to Sunshine where they saw a 12-pack in two. Seriously.

I love the DBG as we locals call it. If you think if you've seen one aloe, you've seen them all, you have no idea. And did you know they all bloom differently? See more cactus than you can imagine and have fun walking around this prized little spot smack-dab in the middle of Phoenix. In December, they have some spectacular​ nighttime events.

I highly recommend Lyft and use it when I'm headed downtown and don't want to drive or worry about parking. Great for getting anywhere and everywhere. For $20 in ride credit, download the Lyft app using my referral link: https://www.lyft.com/ici/AMBER731248. It's the most affordable ride in town. Terms apply.

Shopping

Get your fancy schmancy on. My favorite is locally owned beauty store Citrine. You'll also find Sak's, Williams-Sonoma, Pottery Barn, L'Occitane, Origins, etc. You can see plenty of cuties too, puppies and kittens that is, at the AZ Humane Society adoption center at the Biltmore. Oh, and food. Wonderful restaurants.
