If you’re headed north to the Grand Canyon and need a good espresso to get you there, stop at Late for the Train Espresso, 1800 N. Fort Valley Rd. (www.lateforthetrain.com; tel. 928/773-0308), on U.S. 180 as you drive north out of town. Just look for the old gas station. There’s another location downtown at 22 E. Birch Ave. (tel. 928/779-5975), as well as a kiosk inside the Flagstaff Medical Center at 1200 N. Beaver St. (tel. 928/214-3943). On cold mornings, though, only one Flagstaff coffee drink will do, and that’s the “Hot Monte” at the Hotel Monte Vista’s Rendezvous Coffee House/Martini Bar, 100 N. San Francisco St. (www.hotelmontevista.com; tel. 928/779-6971). It’s made with espresso supplied by the local Fire Creek roasters, along with chocolate, milk, cinnamon, and cayenne. If you need to stock up on picnic supplies, try Whole Foods, 320 S. Cambridge Lane at Butler Ave. (tel. 928/774-5747). For good old-fashioned pies, head east of downtown Flagstaff to Miz Zip’s, 2924 E. Rte. 66 (tel. 928/526-0104)—just don’t try using one of those newfangled credit cards at the cash-only establishment.
