Coolidge is fast becoming a destination for a number of things. Not just its heritage with Cotton Days and the Casa Grande Ruins but such other attractions as the Pinal Geology and Mineral Museum and other historical museums, Coolidge Airport, and annual car shows.
The food scene continues to grow with new and existing choices.
Casa Palomino Mexican Restaurant
Are you looking for some Mexican cuisine? Well, look no further Casa Palomino Mexican Restaurant, which is family-owned and operated. Their authentic Mexican cuisine is something you will enjoy. They have been in business for over 25 years and are quite family-friendly.
This bakery supplies goods to Whole Foods and other health-conscious stores around Arizona. The bread is by far the best in town and could be the best in Arizona. The loaves are works of art, almost too beautiful to cut into. We are so fortunate to have such a high-quality bakery in this small town. We have tried the challah for French toast casserole, the paesano loaf for dipping in olive oil/balsamic, the whole wheat dinner rolls, sourdough for toast, and the jalapeno cheese loaf.
Pita Patio Grill
This new restaurant serves up some of the best classic Greek and American fare. From traditional gyros sandwiches and chicken or pork kabobs (souvlaki) to burgers and Philly Cheesesteaks, there is something for all taste buds. But the Greek food is the shining star. Great appetizers like falafel, dolmathes, and different flavored hummus to traditional Greek salads with olives and feta cheese. Plus, it has become a great live MUSIC entertainment spot with an outdoor dining area with fire pits and an outside bar.
Sabora La Michoacana Ice Cream Parlor
A wonderful new family business serving homemade unique and delicious frozen treats made from corn and with natural flavors.
Popsicles/paletas, ice cream/nieve, fresh waters/agua frescas, esquites/fresh strawberries with cream, etc. The shop also sells Mexican snack foods such as dorilocos and tostilocos.
Great Mom and Pop Cafe, serving breakfast and lunch every day; including American and Mexican food. Favorite locals’ spots; great portions. The wait staff is friendly and welcoming. Come back more than once and feel like family.
