Lone Spur Cafe

Ever since the Crown Railroad closed their west side location, southwest Flagstaff has really needed a good breakfast place. Country Host and Field House came and went, and were never all that great. Galaxy is okay, but never held a candle to the Crown Railroad. The new Over Easy is also okay, but so far I'm not all that impressed with it.

Though I've only been here twice so far, I'm very favorably impressed with Lone Spur Cafe. The huevos rancheros are very nearly the best in town, and the cowboy benedict is a mass of heart-stopping goodness. I haven't tried the omelettes yet, but one look tells me that Crown Railroad is still the winner of that category. Nonetheless, there are many items on the menu that I want to try out.

The cowboy atmosphere is a tad cheesy, but quaint, and the music is a tad loud. Also, stay away if you're vegan: this place is carnivore central. But if you want a good, Western-style feed, this is the place to go. It could very well become one of my favorite restaurants in this part of town.

The location was previously Picazzo's Healthy Italian Kitchen, which had good soups and pasta, not to mention vegan and gluten-free options. Their menu changed periodically, however, and more often than not they tended to drop the very items I liked the best.

Before that it was a Souper Salad, which I'd only been to a couple of times. Flagstaff needs a really good soup and salad bar. Sizzler's okay, but not great.
