Unique Coffee Spots In Scottsdale & Phoenix

One of my favorite past times in exploring new coffee spots! We have so many fun, local spots to choose from here. Next time you are heading out for your espresso, check out one of these unique spots! 


Its cute. It's pink. It has a dessert display that is a dream for anyone with a sweet tooth! Friendly staff, a pink espresso maker, and mid century modern vibes are abound at this cute coffee shop. They even have a breakfast/lunch menu! It checks every box! They have 3 locations-  North Scottsdale located in Artis REIT, Phoenix, and Flagstaff!


Yelp Reviews + Photos: 


Located in Old Town Scottsdale, Sweet Dee's is known for their creative coffees and desserts... Often on theme! Their "Harry Potter" week and more recently "Taylor Swift- RED" week were the talk of the town this past year and I can't wait to see what they come up in 2022! They also offer custom cakes (they have made my last 2 birthday cakes so fun!) and catering options. Don't wait too late in the day to drop by- they open at 7am and close at 2pm daily! 



Sip has locations in both Phoenix and Scottsdale but opt for the Phoenix location and you are in for a little extra surprise... An underground speakeasy via the staircase in the middle of their shop! Ok, lets start with the coffee. Sip offers all your go-tos with the addition of unique options such as a Bananas Foster Latte, Horchata Cold Brew, and even a Mushroom Mocha! They offer a full menu of breakfast + lunch options as well as yummy bar snacks and a full bar. Sip away in their open air space - it's the perfect place to work or catch up with friends. The Speakeasy is it's own experience and they whip up the craziest cocktails you have ever seen! It books up fast, so reservations are a must!

Holiday Activities Arizona 2021

Tis The Season for Holiday Magic! 

Is November 1st too soon to start talking about Holiday Activities? I say it's never too soon to plan!  We are finally feeling a bit of a cool down in Arizona and that means it's time to get outside and enjoy the great outdoors!  There is honestly so much to do this year that I am going to break this into 3 parts! Here is the PART I  guide to all the fun activities in Arizona this Holiday Season 2021.

Annual Suitcase Party Hosted By The 20/30 Club

Could you use a little escape before the holidays ramp up? You just might get your wish via a Private Jet at the annual Phoenix Suitcase Party. The event is coming up Nov. 5th and there are multiple ticket options available. This event is put on by the 20/30 club, a group of entrepreneurs and thought leaders in the community with a strong desire and drive to help underprivileged children in the Valley. So, pack your suitcase for a night of unlimited food, drinks, music and gambling at the Scottsdale Air Park... and cancel all your other weekend plans just in case because a winner will be jetting out THAT night on an all expense paid weekend to a mystery location!

Uncorked- PHX Wine Festival 

Not sure what wine to bring to Thanksgiving or upcoming your holiday parties? Here is the perfect event to sample over 100 wines and champagnes from around the globe! For the perfect pairing, you will want to also sample from the on site gourmet food trucks! Interactive activities, a photo booth, and more fun surprises are also in store for you. Tickets run $55-$70 and benefit local nonprofit Kaity's Way ( which advocates for healthy teen relationships by providing education, skills and tools to youth and their allies.

Phoenix Pizza Festival Sponsored by T-Mobile

If you aren't ready to for Turkey and holiday fare, this Pizza event is perfect for you! This November 13-14, enjoy the amazing outdoor weather while sampling pizza from 15+ local spots! There will be live music, games and local beers + wines. It's also pet friendly! TICKETS SELL OUT EVERY YEAR- so get yours early!

Christmas at The Princess

Beginning November 16th and running through January 2nd, the most magical place to be may just be at Fairmont Princess Resort in Scottsdale! If the 6 million sparkling LED lights (Yes- 6 MILLION!!) don't get you into the spirit I don't know what will! Maybe the Ice Rink they bring in just for this event? If you aren't a fan of the ice, no worries- they have a snow covered hill you can sled down instead! They also have firepits for roasting marshmallows, cute holiday activities and of course Santa will be making an appearance as well. It's truly a magical event that you don't want to miss!

Don't worry friends, there is a LOT more in store for December + New Years, so check back soon for part II of my Holiday Activities Guide! Be sure to follow me on Instagram for All Things Scottsdale + Arizona.
