The 5th Avenue Café is a neighborhood landmark near The Willo Historic Home Community in Metro Phoenix. Opened in 1955, the restaurant operated originally as Upton’s, a well known dining spot for Phoenix residents, politicians and celebrities. Local restaurateur Dee Bung purchased the business in 1964. Over the next several decades residents grew to love the new owner and her signature establishment, known as Dee’s. After many successful years, Dee retired and new owners renamed the restaurant the 5th Avenue Café.
In May 2007, current owner revitalized the interior of the 5th Avenue Café while maintaining the friendly neighborhood atmosphere of its early beginnings. Today’s menu items remain consistent with the unique favorites established by the previous owners, including the Cowboy Breakfast, the 5th Avenue Rancheros, Corned Beef Hash, Steak and Eggs, Biscuits and Gravy and Chicken Fried Steak and Eggs. Moreover, we have added new favorites, such as signature salads, the lighter menu, and pasta dishes.
The 5th Avenue Café is open seven days a week, Monday through Sunday from 7:00am to 2:00pm. We offer weekday luncheon specials, including 5th Avenue Chicken Noodle Soup and homemade chili. Breakfast is served all day, everyday of the week.
