I asked this on my Kingman thread, but no one answered. Where do the locals eat and drink coffee in Kingman? Hubby probably going out there next month, and Kingman is one of the places he'll be checking out. Nothing like listening to the gossip from the locals for info, not to mention probably the best food at reasonable prices.

When we were out there last month we ate at Calico's. It was good and the server was nice, but I think it's a chain. The guy at the Welcome Center (or whatever you call it) recommended Calico's. He was a super nice guy too and was very helpful. Sorry to sound so mushy but it's the truth, LOL.

Did you see this thread?

Food options in the Kingman/Bullhead City/Laughlin area


Edit to add - a lot can be said about a good Welcome Center in a town. Sets the tone for a good visit

Nope, I searched but must have missed it somehow. Although it was probably right smack in front of me

Usually there is one place where people go for coffee and gossip, the thread was more for restaurant recommendations.

Yes we were very pleased with the Welcome Center and the guy that was working there. The girls that were with me bought some things, and we all had to use the restroom too.

Since the Silver Spoon closed there really isn't one particular place. There is Patrick's up on the northern side of town, but it's very small without as much traffic. Mainly the locals in that immediate area. Be nice if someone opened something.
Now, a lunch type place there is Siren's Cafe, or The Hoagie Hut both on Facebook and post their specials. Follow them a week or so and you'll get the jist of their menu. Very affordable home made food.

I was up there a few months ago and asked the same question of the motel clerk....he knew what I was getting at and said no place like that really exists anymore in Kingman.....I ended up going to the little cafe at the airport NE of town a couple miles and it was decent if a bit quiet....some local old guys who are into the airport/airplane history there were at the next table......

and the Welcome Center/visitors center in the old power house downtown is fantastic.....what a great lucky deal that the city, or whomever, got the use of that building and put it to work....nice people at the desk, excellent museum upstairs, good preservation of the building....great to see that sorta thing work out

Yep the airport cafe is a great hidden out of the way spot, Mia Saritas is back behind Jack in the Box off of Andy Devine and its pretty authentic. Oysters is also another Mexican that is a great place to eat.
Thai downtown by Train and the Chinese Buffet behind Sonic on Stockton Hill are my choices which are possibly in the other thread.
