10 Litchfield Park Restaurants For Eating Well on Phoenix's West Side

Litchfield Park may not be a the top of many foodie travel itineraries yet, but this small, affluent village just west of Phoenix is putting itself on the local food map.

For a special lunch, dinner or brunch, consider Litchfield's, located at the historic Wigwam Resort and Spa. The restaurant is currently under the leadership of chef de cuisine Jason Paterno, and the menu emphasizes locally sourced, farm-to-table fare that is both simple and elegant.

When the suburbs get you daydreaming about escaping to France or Italy, save your plane fare and head to Ground Control, a local Litchfield Park favorite that has been compared to a European-style cafe and coffeehouse. This hybrid cafe-coffeeshop-wine bar and gastropub offers a full menu of breakfast, lunch and dinner options, as well as cheeseboards, an extensive wine list, pastries, and even homemade gelato.

If you're looking for a good breakfast spot in Litchfield Park, swing by the Park Cafe. The charming, rustic eatery offers a freshly prepared Southwestern-inspired breakfast and lunch entrees. Try the chilaquiles – lightly fried corn tortillas served with a savory tomato sauce, onions, sour cream and a fried egg. The cafe also offers a delectable selection of fresh-baked pastries and baked goods.
