“The Flatiron” refers to an architectural design in the triangular shape of the heavy old flat irons our grandmothers used to iron clothing. Records are sketchy, but it is rumored here in Jerome that our Flatiron Building pre-dates New York City’s Flatiron building by several years.
In the past century the Flatiron building has had many incarnations: first as The Arizona Lunchroom, then a nurse’s station, a needlework shop, a market, a bakery and finally began its current incarnation as a café in the early 1980’s as a satellite shop of Macy’s Coffee House, still located in Flagstaff, Arizona.
The current owners purchased The Flatiron in 2012 and continue to carry the tradition of a unique dining experience featuring a whole foods breakfast and lunch menu with organic and local ingredients, made fresh to order. Vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options always available.
