Scottsdale: Olive and Ivy

26-Mar-2007
 
 
 
I’m just back from a quick trip to the Phoenix area for Spring Training – baseball that is!  As usual, M and I stayed in Scottsdale as we always seem to end up there for dinners.  We stayed in a cute little "hotel" – more of a motel really.  Loved the place except that there wasn’t much within walking distance which put a little damper on my morning walks.  Of course the thunderstorms that kept blowing through didn’t help much either!  
 
I did come across a great little place to pick up an early morning cup of tea or coffee and a light bite to eat, Olive and Ivy.  They are actually more of a lunch/dinner place and have a great patio overlooking the Scottsdale Canal but we only made it over for breakfast.  
 
M was pleasantly surprised to learn they served Victrola Coffee – that’s a local Seattle company – and the staff was happy to know that someone recognized the brand as a quality offering.
 
I had a lovely cinnamon roll that was actually more like a croissant dough – lots and lots of butter; M had a yummy breakfast egg sandwich.  The staff was very nice and next time I’d like to try a lunch or dinner.
