My Review of Macy’s European Coffee House & Bakery
While my girlfriend Bobbi and I were on a road trip in Flagstaff, Arizona last April, Bobbi had googled to find a great Coffee House that was Vegan and Vegetarian. Macy’s was highly recommended.
Macy’s is a fun, quaint little spot to eat in downtown Flagstaff, AZ. It seemed very much like a college hangout but there were lots of age groups there. Macy’s Coffee House is known for their coffee and since I am not a coffee drinker, my friend had soy latte and said it was very good coffee indeed! I found out that Macy’s employs a coffee scout to find and purchase their beans. They would proudly pay better than fair-trade prices, directly to the farmer. Macy’s appreciates the importance of reducing their ecological impact so they also offer compostable to-go cups and participate in a community-composting program.
They offer gluten free bread which I had with some fantastic home made apricot jam. The gluten free toast was very good. I had a soy hot cocoa and oh my it rivaled Starbucks soy hot cocoa, it was excellent.
My friend had homemade biscuits and vegan gravy which she raved about! I should have had that on my GF Toast. They had a huge salad and sandwich selection to choose from but this was just a short stop for us and we weren’t that hungry. I would highly recommend Macy’s as a Vegan, Gluten-Free and Vegetarian Coffee House.
I hear it gets really busy and the wait line can go out into the street because they are often home to the children’s poetry reading, the college students’ first gig with the new band, or the Monday night chess club.. But I think it is worth the wait! We were lucky and had no problem getting a seat when we happened into the bakery.
