Lunch under $10 at Phoenix Public Market
|The Market Cafe at the Phoenix Public Market|
Then again, maybe you would have if you'd noticed our confusion at attempting to make sense of the scribbled-on chalkboards that serve as menus... But technical difficulties aside, you would have definitely seen two customers being warmly greeted and happily served by what you might have confused for friends rather than employees.
The Phoenix Public Market, located near the downtown ASU campus at Central and Pierce, is open Tuesday through Saturday 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. The breakfast menu ends at 11 a.m. and switches over to an offering of "Marketizers," salads, soups, and sandwiches.
So did the food stand up to the service?

Two of us were unable to resist the half and half combination, which allows you to choose any combination of soup, half salad, or half sandwich for $6.50. Eat your heart out, Paradise Bakery!

ASU students and staff also get an extra 10% off Market Café items if you show a school ID, so our tab came to a whooping $6.88.
