Chandler was founded by A.J. Chandler in the late 1800’s early 1900’s. The second your feet hit the ground, it is almost guaranteed that you will be charmed by the vintage-style lanterns and trellis covered walkways. Visit downtown Chandler and walk the boutique shops, art galleries, and the world-class Chandler Center for the Arts. Here are some of my favorite places to grab a bite to eat.
The Original Chop Shop
Stop in here for a bite to eat, fresh pressed juice, local treats and so much more. I love that Chop Shop sources from local farms and supports local business owners by leveraging their products when possible. If you’re a lover of beets, like me, I highly recommend the beet salad with chicken. But really, you can’t go wrong with anything on the menu.
