One of those areas that has a little bit of something for everyone is the Scottsdale Quarter.

Located in ‘the Beverly Hills of the Desert,’ Scottsdale Quarter boasts breathtaking landscape, highly sought retailers, unique dining and top of the line beauty services.”
Sounds pretty legit right? They go on to say that “Scottsdale Quarter has just what you need, for every occasion.” We would agree, especially food related.

We don’t want that, so we have broken down a list of some of our faves depending on what mood you are in. Without further ado, here is our list of the best restaurants in Scottsdale Quarter:
Best Breakfast Spot: Breakfast Kitchen Bar
Why: A great spot for breakfast, brunch or lunch. They fancy themselves as a “cozy neighborhood place with a laid-back yet hip vibe.” Great for breakfast with the family, a meeting with a colleague or brunch with the squad. Sit at the bar, inside or on their patio, no matter where you sit, you are in for a treat.
Best Coffee Spot: Press Coffee Roasters
Why: If you live in the Valley, you know that Press Coffee absolutely kills it in the coffee game. We sort of feel like that Scottsdale and the Phoenix Valley as a whole kind of gets slept on in the food game in general. But we definitely get slept on in the coffee game and Press Coffee is one of many coffee spots in the Valley that should not be slept on. Give them a visit the next time you are in the Scottsdale Quarter and in need of some caffeine.
