Luci’s at the Orchard is a sunshine spot to be

More from this show

Luci’s at the Orchard is a neighborhood oasis rooted in the community that caters to the whole family.

Tucked into a quiet neighborhood in Phoenix, Luci’s is your one-stop-shop for everything coffee, cafe meals, pastries and more.

Inside an orchard is an ideal outdoor gathering spot. The space is lined with citrus trees and offers a dog-friendly patio and splash pad for kids.  It’s something COO and partner Jerry Mansoor set his heart on to truly make Valley residents feel at home.

“Luci’s at the Orchard is all about community,” he said. ” We do a lot of things that are more to your heart than anything.”

Just like mother’s cooking, the restaurant serves everything from fresh-squeezed juices, salads, sandwiches, all-day breakfast and even Splurge’s homemade gelato.

But not just a spot to dine, Luci’s is also a marketplace that showcases an exciting collection of candles, artisan soaps, gourmet foods, toys and games for kids, and other unique gifts.

Guest Jim Scott headed over to Luci’s after finishing a double race. He chose to feast on their morning run breakfast burrito served with egg whites, kale, beans and corn alongside a tomato-based salsa.

Scott’s wife enjoyed a gluten-free french toast topped with maple syrup and butter. After, they both indulged in warm dark chocolate chip cookies that sat in the sun while they enjoyed their meal.

“It was great; it hit the spot,” Scott said.

Guest Ivan Martinez ordered the restaurant’s chilaquiles, a dish he has had at many different places before.

“I loved the different layers of flavors,” he said. “The tortilla chips were crispy and crunchy — it really brings it all together.”

Luci’s is a great place to bring friends, family and even coworkers to enjoy the outdoor weather and munch on heartfelt food.
