It’s Patio Season

by Mike Hunter

Our weather makes patios di rigueur for restaurants here, but some are reason unto themselves for choosing where to breakfast, lunch or dine.

Chelsea’s Kitchen

Shaded by an enormous canopy from the venerable mesquite trees and dominated by a grand brick fireplace, this patio feels far removed from the bustle of traffic on nearby Camelback Road.

5040 N. 40th St., Phoenix
(602) 957-2555

Snooze – Tempe

Near ASU’s main campus and offering a wide view of the plaza outside Harkins Theaters, this is a laid-back patio great for people-watching.
615 S. College Ave., Tempe
(480) 355-1934

Carlsbad Tavern

A perfect microclimate for the desert, the patio is really a courtyard, semi-shaded by trees and shade structures, with a water feature and a South-of-the-Border vibe.
3313 N Hayden Rd, Scottsdale
(480) 970-8164
