Tourist Home Urban Market is a family owned and operated restaurant in Flagstaff, AZ. Driving north on San Francisco street, three companion restaurants are nestled in a row under the same family ownership. As early as 1926, this building provided hospitality to Basque sheepherders. Saving the Tourist Home from being torn down, the home was purchased and renovated by the Heinonen family and reopened as an urban market in 2014. Situated next to he Annex lounge, the two share an open air sitting area resembling an upscale picnic area to enjoy Flagstaff’s beautiful summer and fall weather while eating outside. Being a favorite meeting place for tourists and Flagstaff residents, Tourist Home provides guests with an espresso bar and serves specialty made pastries, breakfast burritos and a variety of egg dishes as well as salads, soups and sandwiches for lunch.
When the Tourist Home doors close at 8 p.m., one can wander across the outdoor dining area into the Annex for after dinner eats and drinks until 11 p.m. The Annex lounge provides an after dinner venue and is connected to the third restaurant in the family chain of dining establishments named Tinderbox Kitchen. Fine Dining specialties served from 5-10 p.m. include ratatouille, grilled pork porterhouse as well as grilled salmon with a variety of starters and sides, not to mention their flourless chocolate cake. Providing the south end of San Francisco street with a wide array of edible choices, the Heinonen family has transformed a part of downtown that was once not so popular. With Tourist Home as the beginning point of your day as well as providing another stop for a mouth watering lunch, the Tinderbox can supply your dinner needs with the Annex topping the night off with more after dinner fair. It is quaint cuisine experiences like these that make Flagstaff such a charming place to visit and enjoy.
