The ultimate gourmet grocery in Arizona, AJ's Fine Foods has several locations throughout the Valley in Scottsdale, Chandler, Glendale, and Phoenix. Each one stocks a choice selection of artisanal cheeses, meats, baked goods, produce, and deli fare. Whether you're hunting for a nationally acclaimed specialty item like Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams, looking for a local favorite like cookies from Barb's Bakery, or browsing through enticing display after enticing display of delicious goods, AJ's is the prime destination. In addition to groceries, you'll find an Italian bistro with pizza and pasta dishes, a coffee bar, made-to-order sandwiches, fresh sushi, to-go dishes like meatloaf, and a large selection of beer and wine. While you're there, be sure to talk to the expert butchers, bakers, and staff members who can help you select the right ingredients to make your ideal breakfast, lunch, dinner, or holiday meal. There's only one downside: the total when you bring your bounty of delectable finds to the register.
