Best Pizza in Prescott, AZ

I consider myself to be somewhat of a pizza snob, so when I discovered Bill's Pizza on Cortez Street, just east of the court house, I was delighted. By far, Bill's Pizza served my pizza snobbery. My favorite pizza is the Elton John, my mouth waters just thinking about it. It boasts a garlic infused olive oil on a delightful crust topped with artichoke hearts, diced tomatoes, spinach, red onions, four cheeses along with feta. This might not be for everyone but I sure love it. So it stands to reason that when I had guests in town and pizza was a dinner choice, I take them to Bill's. Right? Well not so fast... It turns out that Bill's was closed, What? I know! Closed for renovation said the sign on their door...now what? I remember hearing about another pizza joint up the road a block or so, so I venture on into Two Mamma's Gourmet Pizza, also on Cortez Street. My friends didn't have the same adventurous pizza spirit that I do, so we didn't stray far from the ordinary, but even so, I was quite impressed by Two Mamma's. The store front was clean (a biggie) and the young lady behind the counter was talkative, polite & friendly, plus you could tell that she enjoyed what she was doing. The pizzas were amazing and the cost was somewhat less than Bill's (bonus). So now when guests ask about pizza choices, my response is somewhat different, hmmm, I like them both, I guess it's always good to have options!

Breakfast at a B&B is as varied as the B&B's themselves. That being said, here is how we do breakfast.

Since we consider breakfast to be a highlight of your stay, (Hello, Bed & Breakfast). We start by finding out if any of our guests have food allergies or other dietary restrictions and do our best to accommodate (within reason). Once that is figured out we plan a delicious homemade breakfast that will delight the senses. Ours is a two course, plated affair, all you have to do is show up on time, sit down and be prepared to be pampered and served. Several varieties of juice is at your table and we have unlimited coffee, tea & hot chocolate all available at your request. If you are into cold beverages at breakfast, our beverage cooler is stocked and awaiting your request as well. We take great pride in preparing a delicious, memorable breakfast for each guest.

What time is breakfast? Times vary depending upon how full our inn is. Typically during the week we try to provide a middle ground time which is 8:30. On weekends when we are more full, we generally  have two seating's, one at 8:00 and 9:30. You have the opportunity to select your time, based upon availability, when you check in. It is important that you arrive on time at your selected seating, as we prepare each persons breakfast and have a place set for you. You can opt out of breakfast if you so desire, however, please contact us via text or phone call prior to breakfast so that we don't prepare for you.

Will you have to sit with other guests? At our inn, yes, most likely.  Many find that meeting other travelers is an enhancing feature of  B&B's. Our ambiance is warm & welcoming and lends itself to conversing with people you don't know. It is not uncommon to have guests sitting and talking long after they have finished eating, often times sharing contact information with one another before leaving. We have a saying on our wall, "May all who enter as guests, leave as friends", this goes for guest with one another as well as for us, the innkeepers. So all this being said, If you are a "stick to yourself" kind of person, perhaps a chain hotel would better suite your needs.

How far is Prescott Pines Inn B&B from Whiskey Row?

We are located 1.3 miles from the courthouse plaza and Whiskey Row. Although it's just a short walk away, I wouldn't recommend it...yet. Construction of bicycle lanes and sidewalks are currently under way and when the dust settles, it is going to be awesome! In the mean time it's a quick drive or taxi ride into town.
