Snooze, an A.M. Eatery

I just love breakfast, so I was excited to hear about a new restaurant at Kierland Commons. Snooze is a cheery place with lots of windows and outdoor seating, open for breakfast and lunch. The menu is full of interesting dishes including pancake and benedict flights.

LON’s at the Hermosa Inn

When I eat out, I love going to cozy restaurants, especially ones with a bit of history. One of my favorite places is LON’s at the Hermosa Inn, which serves artful American cuisine. Lon Megargee was a cowboy artist who was well known for his artwork featured inside the Stetson cowboy hat. The inn was originally his home. After adding a studio, he called it “Casa Hermosa”, and later opened it as a guest ranch. The Hermosa Inn is in the middle of Paradise Valley, a beautiful and secluded residential area.
