Take a Stroll

Where Phoenix - - WHERE NOW -

• Af­ter a mixed sam­pler of three pan­cakes (your choice among pineap­ple, sweet potato, straw­berry rhubarb and oth­ers) or one of six eggs Bene­dict plat­ters at Snooze (Town & Coun­try, 20th St. & Camel­back, 480.725.8000), ri­fle through the bar­gains at Nordstrom Rack and My Sis­ter’s Closet.

• So what if there’s a wait for eggs scram­bled with high-end salami at Matt’s Big Break­fast (1st St. & Garfield, 602.254.1074); record store Re­volver (2nd St. & Roo­sevelt) doesn’t open un­til noon Sun­days and 11 am other days.

• Bathe in the calm­ness of a col­lege town’s so­cial hub on summer break. You’ll breeze through the or­der­ing line at NCounter (Mill Ave. & 3rd St., Tempe, 480.968.9288), re­ceive your iced cof­fee and eggs with Gor­gonzola and thyme in no time, and be back on the side­walk to win­dow-shop in short order.

• Find­ing the Orange Ta­ble can be tricky, since it doesn’t have street frontage (north of 2nd St. & west of Drinkwa­ter Blvd., 480.424.6819). Forge on for the sake of corned beef, roasted chiles and poached eggs, then go take a pic­ture with one of Robert In­di­ana’s fa­mous “LOVE” sculp­tures on ad­ja­cent Scotts­dale Civic Cen­ter Mall.

• Tackle the ob­scene Hill­billy High­rise— coun­try-fried steak, hash­browns, eggs and sausage gravy—at Morn­ing Squeeze (pic­tured below; Scotts­dale Rd. & 4th Ave., 480.945.4669), then wad­dle along 5th Av­enue to browse for va­ca­tion post­cards, dream­catch­ers or turquoise jew­elry.
