When in Phoenix – Cornish Pasty Company   Leave a comment

The Cornish Pasty Co., with locations in Tempe and Mesa is a great place to frequent if you live or are visiting the Phoenix metro area! I love this place. They have some really great vegan options – two kinds vegan pasties everyday, curried potatoes, rosemary potatoes, oven chips, and a full bar. The pasties really fill you up. My favorites are the vegan greek, vegan portabella, and the fiesta. The vegan philly, and vegan cheese and onion have too much fake cheese and not enough of anything else, so I don’t really like those. But lets not dwell on that. Some of the salads can also be made vegan by forgoing the cheese. I’m not a big salad person myself, so I can’t say how those are.

I think the best thing about the CPC is that you can go with whomever – vegetarian, omnivore, or alcoholic and everyone leaves happy. They have an entire menu full of vegetarian pasties which use the Quorn brand sausage and chicken. The meat and cheese pasties are delicious as well. I recommend “the mexican” and the “rosemary chicken” from my omnivorous days. The menu is fairly priced with pasties between $8 and $10.

CPC has a full bar with great beer and wine specials for happy hour. And as always, $3 car bombs all the time!

The above photo is the vegan greek. It comes with a delicious tahini sauce, and I usually ask for some marinara as well. So, so good. It’s probably my favorite pasty.
