Gilbert residents can add one of the Valley's hottest breakfast spots to the list of independent restaurants located in their 'hood. Snooze, an A.M. Eatery, the restaurant chain that started in Denver, will be opening a second Valley location in the Gilbert Historic District later this year.
The first Snooze location in Arizona opened in November at the Town and Country Shopping Center in Central Phoenix. The second location will join Postino East, Joyride Taco House, and Joe's Real BBQ.
The state's second Snooze location will be inside an all-new building just north of the intersection of Gilbert Road and Page Avenue. The 4,200-square-foot space will feature a glass storefront and large patio. The new location is expected to open in late 2014.
Snooze eventually will be joined by a few more eateries in the downtown neighborhood. Plans for a 60,800-square-foot mixed-use development called Heritage Marketplace on the northwest corner of Gilbert Road and Vaughan Avenue include the addition of at least two well-known Valley eateries: Zinburger, Sam Fox's gourmet burger chain, and longtime Valley staple Lo-Lo's Chicken & Waffles.
