As is our wont we didn't drive directly from Phoenix on the boring I-10. Instead we went via the longer mountain route taking us through the mining towns of Superior and Globe and affording some spectacular views. We also found some find food along the way (and let's take a minute to salute Yelp which we've found invaluable and reliable in our travels). On our drive from the East Coast we had some great food in Monroe, Louisiana (gumbo) and Abilene, Texas (chicken piccata) at little local places we would never have found on our own.
On this trip, we had lunch at Porter's Cafe on the main street in Superior. Since it was crowded, we ate at the bar and THC had a delicious BLT with about a half pound of crisp bacon and the Mrs had an excellent ham and fried egg sandwich.

And here is the exterior. It's pet friendly.
