The County Seat
Good Food Served Daily
One of the best kept secrets in Prescott, The County Seat, is a local gathering place, mercantile and restaurant that upsets the norm for options in Prescott’s downtown Courthouse Square.
With the goal of creating a casual sanctuary for locals and visitors alike, The County Seat brings a bright and modern vibe to the small, but bustling historic downtown area and is the best place to find good food and good health, served daily.
It offers an array of hearty sandwiches, robust salads and grab-and-go items paired with a full-coffee bar and craft cocktails.
The expansive 6,500-square-foot restaurant offers fast-casual service within a coffeehouse-like setting complete with an Instagram worthy wraparound bar, lounge seating, custom communal dining tables and a curated mercantile area of trendy retail offerings.
While the simplicity of the menu may be deceiving, the dedication of the kitchen staff led by Chef Kelsey Salamon yields a-made-from-scratch flavor that is hard to find — making the trip up the stairs well worth it.
The product of Proprietor Skyler Reeves’ vision and daily execution by general managers Stephanie Hollingsworth and myself, The County Seat is designed to bring the outdoors in with large windows, skylights and bright walls blending harmoniously with trellises overflowing with lush greenery.
Inspired décor from Andrea Wojciak Interiors create a space both welcoming and familiar while maintaining an everyday sophistication not found elsewhere in downtown.
Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week, and staking its claim in what is arguably the best location in town, The County Seat is where you go to get the best chicken sandwich of your life and a refreshing glass of wine while overlooking the beloved local landmark, the Yavapai County Courthouse Plaza.
Whether coming in for a quick bite, a locally roasted coffee from FreeForm Coffee Roasters or setting up for a study session, The County Seat welcomes guests 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. For more, visit www.countyseataz.com.
