The Toasted Owl Story

Cecily’s 3 Favorite Things are Vintage Salvage, Food, and People

One spring day while walking downtown Flagstaff with a dear friend discussing her new idea on how to combine her three favorite things, she came upon a small storefront in a bank on Birch Avenue for rent. Staring through the big glass windows, her mind went wild with ideas for her new shop. The space was small, but just big enough to make her dream a reality. The kitchen was very small with only a sink,convection oven and a three-plate burner and a toaster. Cecily created a small rotating menu that featured a breakfast burrito and three other dishes. She decorated the little shop with owls she had collected and the doors of the first Toasted Owl Café opened in the fall of 2013. With the help of her daughter’s Northern Arizona University friends as employees, the first restaurant had lines out the door, requiring a larger space.

Cecily then found an old house a mile away on 12 Mike’s Pike that she felt would be perfect for the new Owl. After extensive remodeling including a new kitchen, dining room, retail display space and a 1200 sq. ft. dog friendly patio, the new restaurant opened in November of 2015 with great success.

Feeding the need for an east-side location in Flagstaff, Cecily then found another space on Cortland St. After extensive remodeling, this location opened in March of 2017. The Toasted Owl Cafés have enjoyed tremendous acceptance and on the weekends, the dog-friendly patios are frequently packed, with lines of guests out the door.

100% of everything inside every restaurant is for sale! Cecily Maniaci also runs an affiliated company named Toasted Owl Collectibles and this firm will supply franchisees with all of the retail items they'll need in their stores.

Outstanding media coverage and “best of” awards continue to support the brand as being the “best place to have breakfast and lunch” in Arizona. Cecily says, “I have to pinch myself every morning when I wake up to know that this is not a dream. It just goes to prove that if you love what you do, then everything else will follow.”
