In the big neighborhood of Phoenix, a lush little patch of paradise lies between a camel-shaped mountain (called… Camelback Mountain) and the Arizona Canal. It’s the kind of place where neighborhood BBQs happen year-round and the neighbor kid cruises her bike with a baseball bat strapped to her back. This real Pleasant Ville is called Arcadia, named after the Greek term for a landscape fit for the gods, and it’s a great place to kiss a lemon.
What once were sprawling citrus groves of lemon, orange and grapefruit in the 1950s are now the resting place of cool, leisurely mid-century ranch homes. The nearby La Grande Orange flows with wine, coffee and fresh market produce. It’s a land of plenty, you could say. So why wouldn’t a sandwich shop with a cause tap in?
Shop features include 26-foot-tall ceilings, reclaimed barn wood doors that open to an indoor potting shed, and a Carmen Miranda print that smiles back. Artifacts include vintage Arizona fruit crates and labels. We also collab’d with local artist Tyson Krank on a floral-patterned billboard outside.
