People Pizza Pub

I’m really bummed to see another local favorite closing it’s doors. Pizza People Pub has been operating out of this location across the Phoenix Public library since 2013. They have a great story of a family owned business starting out of a food truck and eventually opening their own restaurant. Their menu consists of their signature made-from-scratch 10 inch artisan pizzas and a variety of pub favorites like wings and their always popular mac & cheese. I always got a kick out of some of the pizza creations that they have (and the names) – Date Me, The Hulk, Testosteroni, Popeye, Fun Guy, The Hottie, etc. Even though I love their pizzas, I usually came here to try one of their many mac & cheeses. Some of my favorites have been the Smokey Paprika Mac, the Jalapeño Mac and the Truffle Mac. They load their mac & cheese with lots of cheese so they are nice and gooey. I wish they had a mac & cheese flight so I could sample them all. I stopped in tonight to have a last meal here before they close shop. I enjoyed hearing my bartender share stories of how much he enjoyed working here. It’s always sad to hear of local restaurants going out of business. I wish them the best.

Crackers & Co. Cafe

Crackers & Company Cafe is a scratch kitchen that has been serving the Valley since 1984. They serve both breakfast and lunch and pride themselves on fresh ingredients. I came here with a friend and got the California Eggs Benedict (an english muffin topped with fresh spinach, bacon, avocado, tomato, 2 poached eggs, and adobo hollandaise sauce). Crackers is also known for their homemade desserts. I hear the Augustinas Brandied Cinnamon Bread Pudding (photo below from website) is pretty amazing and hope to try it sometime soon.
