During our recent trips to Scottsdale, we found the following restaurants:
Arcadia Farms: Located in Old Town is Arcadia Farms which is the perfect lunch spot. I was one of the few men in the place. You will see the local “ladies who lunch” and possibly hear discussions about the bestseller Fifty Shades of Gray, which I did. The food is fresh and well-prepared. It is at 7025 East 1st Ave.
After lunch stop in at the Sugar Bowl for ice cream. Open since 1958, this restaurant and soda fountain has a full menu of ice cream, milkshakes, sundaes and floats. The decor looks to be right out of the 50’s.
The Mission: Located at 3815 N. Brown Ave., in Old Scottsdale, this a restaurant featuring modern Latin cuisine. I enjoyed a great dinner with friends. We enjoyed the tacos and the seafood entrees.
In neighboring Cave Creek, I had a really great lunch at The Horny Toad at 6738 E. Cave Creek Rd. The barbeque pork sandwich was really outstanding. Friends also recommend Harold’s Cave Creek Corral at 6895 Cave Creek.
In Carefree, I would definitely try Binkley’s Restaurant Group Cafe Bink in Carefree. It looks really good.
For dining in Scottdale, friends recommend Greasewood Flat, located in a 120+ year old bunk house of a stage coach stop.
