I've never been to Macy's [I've lived in Flagstaff 45 years] when it wasn't reasonably busy. That simple fact is about all one needs to know ... customers have been filling this friendly place for a very long time. It reminds one of a European coffeehouse near a university [indeed it's only a few blocks from Northern Arizona University] because it's full of people talking to others it's usually noisy and the seating is close by others.

The menu is exclusively vegetarian; carnivores should eat elsewhere. It's owner is a friendly person who is a Bahai' follower, so the walls are full of black and white photos of ethnically diverse ordinary people with thoughtful, loving remarks. Most of the food is organic and the menu is quite extensive. Coffee is wonderful and Macy's provides breakfast and lunch and dinner.

Usually there are students and laptops on some of the tables, with the occasional table serving as a chess board. Most of the staff are NAU students with a distinctly "granola" flair. Hard to go wrong with anything on the menu.....

I like this place, but my kids expect a bit more in the way of a pastry. They do a good cup of coffee, but we weren't impressed with the hot chocolate. If you have food allergies or vegan, they have some Fantastic options. Prices similar to Starbucks, no 99 cent hot beverage here….

Four of us and our dog stopped in for breakfast and coffee on our way to California. The coffee was excellent and the scones and pastries were quite tasty and all made in house. They have a dog friendly area on the patio which was quite convenient. Service was outstanding and even with the line of people we didn't have to wait long for the food or coffee.

From looking at all the accolades on their walls and customers packed in almost a standing-room-only environment, Macy's is clearly the best coffeehouse in Flagstaff.

Not only was my mocha latte and my wife's chai latte perfect, but the breakfast sandwiches with steamed, free-range eggs on what was probably the largest, flakiest croissants we have ever eaten, were almost too big to eat.

If you can find a table and put up with a packed house, the food and beverages will win you over with a full belly and a smile.

To quote a friend on a chilly night... "You have to try this place, they have the Worlds Best Hot Chocolate." Well my friend could not have been more accurate! The coffee shop was hip, well decorated and cozy. Their beverages were sensational and the barista was very accommodating with my dairy allergy.
