The Tourist Home was built in the early 1920s by Basque sheepherders who would graze their flocks in the area during the warm summer months. It was a boarding house of sorts, where the sheepherders would congregate to eat, sleep, and enjoy the shelter and company of one another. They built the Handball Court around what is now our beautiful outdoor patio, which is open for seating year-round.
We rebuilt the entire Tourist Home building from the inside out in 2014, taking every step possible to maintain its historic structure. Now, it has become a buzzing center of the Southside Neighborhood here in Flagstaff and a great point of pride in the city.
Our menu features New American cuisine with a touch of southwestern flair. Tourist Home is Flagstaff's ideal spot for breakfast, lunch, and of course, brunch. With locally roasted coffee, brunch cocktails, extensive outdoor seating, and the best breakfast burritos in town, Tourist Home is a no-brainer to start your day and keep it going.
