Morning, Breakfast & Brunch: 8 AM - 12 PM

Irma's Kitchen

If you’re an early waker, head out to Irma’s Kitchen as early as 7 AM, where you can have some delicious breakfast. This casual Mexican breakfast restaurant is great for a lively conversation and comfort food. 

Morning Glory Cafe

Morning Glory is a signature Phoenix breakfast spot; they serve fresh omelets, smoked meats, and pastries. They also have a gorgeous patio outdoors with string light bulbs to provide an ambient atmosphere. Morning Glory is best known for its connection to the Farm at South Mountain, as they offer farm-to-table dining.

South Mountain Trails

Get active in the morning with your partner by visiting one of Phoenix’s many famous trails. South Mountain Park and Preserve has several trailheads worth visiting. In many of these trails, you and your date can spend some time conversing in a more intimate setting, while still being outdoors, as you bike, hike, walk, or run together. There’s also horseback riding available at some locations!

Lux Coffee

If you’re looking for more of a simple coffee date, Lux Coffee is the place for you. The shop offers an abundance of pastries, and, of course, some of the best tasting coffee in Arizona. They also offer cocktails on their menu.

Afternoon, Lunch: 12 PM- 4 PM

Chelsea's Kitchen

A more high end option for lunch is Chelsea’s Kitchen, a Phoenix favorite. The establishment claims to be “a roadhouse celebrating the cuisine of the Great American Southwest”. They serve taco platters, wings, burgers, and other classic American favorites.

Marigold Maison

Craving some classic Indian street food? Be sure to visit Marigold Maison for a quick lunch! From Samosa to Gobi Manchurian, you can find all of the classic, comforting Indian dishes here. The Mango Kulfi is also a not-to-miss menu item at Marigold Maison.


If you and your date love taking pictures together, or just love art in general, Wonderspaces is a great place to go. This ever-changing art establishment creates interactive and immersive experiences. And, there’s a bar, in case that convinces you. ;)

Japanese Friendship Garden

The Japanese Friendship Garden is a great place to visit, even if you’re more than friends. This garden hosts different events and workshops, and is a great photo spot. You can also just enjoy nature and walk through the garden, and end with a picnic near Margaret T. Hance Park. 

Evening, Dinner: 4 PM - 8 PM

Binkley's Restaurant

For an upscale dinner date, visit Binkley’s, a reservation-based, fixed menu restaurant. The beautiful restaurant has a homely atmosphere, with lovely garden elements outside of the establishment. It’s the perfect place to go if you want to treat you and your date with something a bit more fancy.

Seoul Phoenix

BBQ and sushi is always a great option for dinner. Seoul BBQ offers delicious KBBQ at each dining table, with an individual grill. They also have an all-you-can-eat lunch and dinner menu, so come hungry! The award-winning restaurant is regarded as one of the best for sushi and BBQ.

The Macintosh

Another more high end New American dinner date option is The Macintosh. They offer many Southern-style options, such as grits, ribs, and classic burgers. The Macintosh focuses on how they source their food sustainably as well.

Imagine 3D Mini Golf

Spice up your classic dinner date with a fun game of 3D mini golf. This isn’t just your regular game of mini golf though; it’s 3D. With 3D glasses on, you can experience the murals painted on the walls pop out at you. You can also head out for a light dinner before or after visiting. 

After Hours, Drinks & Small Bites: 8 PM - 12 AM

Thunderbird Lounge

This arcade-based lounge offers a wide variety of drinks, cigars, and hosts fun events to get to know the community. The 70s bar was named one of the best new bars by New Times, and one of Phoenix’s top drinking locations by Eater. 

Bitter & Twisted

Located in downtown Phoenix, Bitter & Twisted is a more upscale bar and cocktail parlor, rated in the top ten for ‘World’s Best Cocktail Menu’. They also host events, and serve basic bar food and snacks to go along with their delicious drinks. 


If you’re looking for a more romantic after hours date with your partner, go on a stargazing tour. With an experienced guide and night vision, you can experience the beautiful night sky in Arizona through a high-powered telescope. The company, Stellar Adventures, also offers ATV tours of the city.

Cobra Arcade Bar

Finally, Cobra Arcade Bar is your place to go for some friendly competition and drinks. The bar has a huge selection of games, DJs, and food trucks to fuel yourself. This bar has more of a vintage, casual feel to it.
