Calling all early birds! Snooze, an A.M, Eatery is coming to Kierland Commons on August 26th, bringing its craveable menu of from-scratch breakfast and brunch fare to a can’t-miss location overlooking Scottsdale Road. Kicking off with a two-day grand opening event that also doubles as a fundraiser for local charities, Snooze will be helping to raise funds to support the McDowell Mountain Conservancy and Whispering Hope Ranch Foundation. Housed inside a perfectly compact, custom-built space, this all-new Snooze boasts an expansive indoor-outdoor vibe thanks to a rollaway garage door window wall – a Kierland Commons first – leading to a spacious (and shaded) outdoor dining patio. Furthermore, says CEO David Birzon, the Snooze crew is expected to bring some early morning buzz to this landmark luxury shopping center in the heart of the North Scottsdale retail and entertainment district.
“Traditionally shopping centers can be a little sleepy early in the mornings, so we’re excited to offer up our brand of energy, and of course delicious breakfast, coffee and morning cocktails starting at 6:30 am daily to local residents, workers and shoppers at Kierland and beyond.” Furthermore, Birzon says, “We’re honored to secure such a prominent location inside a premium property like Kierland Commons, which are traditionally reserved for national brands such as our neighbors at PF Chang’s. Along with the upcoming Postino WineCafe, we think it really speaks to Kierland’s commitment to creating a unique mix of national, regional and local restaurant and retail destinations.” As for Kierland itself, Kim Choukalas, Vice President of Leasing for Macerich, says, “Kierland Commons continues to be a dominant outdoor shopping center in Arizona. The property offers lavish condominiums, expansive office suites, and a one-of-a-kind mix of shopping and dining. We are excited to introduce Snooze as we feel it’s the ideal complement to the existing center and the eatery offers a new reason to visit Kierland Commons.”
Founded in Denver, CO in 2006, Snooze opened its first Arizona location in Phoenix in 2013, and quickly expanded to iconic locations in Tempe and downtown Gilbert. So what’s the buzz all about? At Snooze, guests are tempted by from-scratch menu items such as a choose-your-own flight of fluffy pancakes or house-made breakfast pot pie smothered in rosemary sausage gravy. Not to mention, eggs benedict with thin slices of prosciutto, Taleggio cheese, and perfectly poached eggs on toasted ciabatta, topped with cream cheese hollandaise, balsamic glaze and arugula.
