Not too impressed with this one. It is one of those places where they have a board with all their offerings and you check boxes on a paper menu to order your food. Service was fast and friendly.
DW had a chicken salad sandwich that she said was very bland. She also had French Onion soup. She found hard black pieces in it and dug them out. When a manager came by and asked how everything was, she showed them to him and he said " Oh, those are just caramelized onions". Really? Caramelized? Can you say burnt to a crisp?
I had a Hawaiian grilled cheese which was very good but I paired it with a strawberry/spinach salad that had a very tart strawberry vinaigrette dressing. Man - still makes me pucker just thinking about it. For my drink I selected a cucumber, orange, lemon, infused water that was just nasty. I poured it out and tried the pomegranate flavored green tea and it was only slightly better.
To be fair, the manager and a waitress both offered to replace the soup and my salad but we declined. The burnt onion should have never made it in the soup pot but my salad was just a personal taste thing.
Also, this place is downtown and parking on a Wednesday morning was not to be found. I guess we'll look elsewhere next time.

A very pleasant meal in Flagstaff. We stopped at Mix while driving from the Grand Canyon to Phoenix. The sandwiches we had were a perfect road trip break. The ingredients were well balanced and delicious. The dining area was unusual and fun. It is unusual to find a restaurant like this in a building with a number of small stores.

Our daughter took us here for breakfast when we visited her during memorial weekend .
It was breakfast and surprisingly have a variety of selectons.
Good food and great service . One comment is their coffee . Wish it was a little stronger . Not sure if it's the quality of coffee beans used or just the ratio of grounds and water . It was just watered down for my taste .
Might come back and try their mimosa or bloody Mary for breakfast .

I was on my way to the Canyon and only got enough time for a cup of coffee. In that short time i loved this place. The hosts were so nice and friendly. On my request they made my Irish coffee less sweet. If i ever get a chance to be in Flagstaff again I will definitely go there.

MIX is order at the counter for food and drinks but the food is served to your table. Most kind and helpful staff....what I remember best was the people. We joined others on the patio to enjoy a "lunch on the Square." Lots of wind but very nice. And good food, especially the Southwestern western salad with corn and beans. A very nice break in our visit to Flagstaff.
