Check out who made our list and see the full peanut butter and jelly slideshow.
PB&J Pasty @ Cornish Pasty Co. -- Known for their gourmet Hot Pocket -style pastries filled with savory ingredients ranging from the traditional meat and potatoes to southwestern style Spicy Asiago Chicken, The Cornish Pasty Co. also makes a PB&J. Flaky pastry is wrapped around warm, creamy peanut butter, ripe bananas, and tart raspberry jam. Order it as a dessert and they'll pretty it up for you with loads of whipped cream and raspberry sauce.
PB & J Belgian Waffle @ Daily Dose -- Get a delicious head start on your day with a plate of Daily Dose's huge and fluffy Belgium waffles with a PB&J twist. The Scottsdale and Phoenix breakfast, lunch, and dinner spot serves up their thick waffles covered with ripe bananas, creamy peanut butter and a healthy dose of their housemade berry sauce. The perfect breakfast (or lunch -- they serve waffles 'til 4 p.m.) for the PB&J lover.
The Cash Money @The Main Ingredient -- Craft beer, classic hip-hop, and one of the best grown-up versions of a PB&J sandwich can be found at this little house-turned-restaurant in Phoenix's historic Coronado neighborhood. The Cash Money is made up of smooth, housemade cashew butter, a unique red pepper-cabernet jelly, and lots of sweet banana slices all sandwiched between two slices of toasted sourdough. Find a spot on their awesome patio and chow down on this classic sandwich with a nice milk stout from Left Hand Brewing.
