Downtown Chandler Café and Bakery
40 S. San Marcos Pl., Chandler 85225
Located just a few doors from the historic San Marcos Hotel (Crowne Plaza Phoenix – Chandler Golf Resort), the Downtown Chandler Café and Bakery is one of the most popular breakfast places in the city. Dive into fresh-baked pastries, muffins, bagels, or giant cinnamon roll slathered with icing for breakfast.
Or, tackle the breakfast burrito, waffle with fruit, pancakes, or omelet. Can’t decide? Try the tasty Kalifornian Benedict, poached eggs served on focaccia bread and topped with avocado, hollandaise sauce, and jalapenos. Everything is cooked to order, and portions are generous.
Downtown Chandler Café and Bakery has plenty of indoor seating and a small patio outside. Breakfast is served all day Monday through Saturday, from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., and Sunday, 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Salads and sandwiches are also available throughout the day.

Looking for something a little different for breakfast? Grab a table on the covered patio at the Hangar Café. You’ll be right next to Chandler Municipal Airport’s runway and have a great view of the planes taking off and landing. Inside, model planes dangle from the ceiling, and flight instructors swap stories at the small counter or near the oversized windows.
Choose from typical breakfast items such as omelets, biscuits with homemade sausage gravy, eggs with corned beef hash, breakfast burritos, and pancakes. Or, sample a dish inspired by the owners’ Lebanese heritage such as the gyro, spinach, and feta cheese omelet. If you like hash browns, don’t miss them here. Locals say the Hangar Café has some of the best in Chandler.
The Hangar Café is small, so don’t be surprised if there’s a wait. The restaurant is open daily, 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.

This neighborhood hangout features creative breakfasts made from scratch with farm-fresh ingredients. Dig into a green chili pork eggs benedict or a hash of ham, sausage, short rib meat, and potatoes. For a sweeter option, try the Hawaiian French toast with bananas and powder sugar.

You also have the option to build-your-own omelet or breakfast burrito. Make your breakfast even better by taking advantage of the full bar.
On the go? BLD has a drive-thru for coffee drinks, protein shakes, smoothies, and to-go foods. If you have the time, though, take advantage of Arizona’s sunshine to enjoy your meal on the large outdoor patio.
