Coffee is like magic in a cup. The incredible, magical bean is often roasted and brewed, providing us with a flavorful cup filled with caffeine and antioxidants ready to deliver energy. It is easy to develop a liking for coffee as there are many types of roasts, flavors, and ways to drink it. As most of us cherish and fascinate about the different types of coffee goodness, here are some of our favorite places in Scottsdale, AZ to get our fix of unicorn magic!
Coffee Plantation – 7366 E. Shea Blvd, #101, Scottsdale, AZ, 85260
Looking for a great coffee shop to sit and enjoy a good cup of coffee? The Coffee Plantation is a great spot to do just that! Enjoy a variety of coffees, teas, sweets and eats. They even have sandwiches, pastries, kombucha and vegan options! Coffee Plantation does not disappoint.
Enjoy the friendly atmosphere and chic style. There is plenty of seating available inside the cafe, and during the cooler months, you’ll love to sit outside in the outdoor seating area. And, it is not only a Scottsdale staple with Harkins Shea 14, but also you can bring your drink from Coffee Plantation inside the movie theater!
Kona Coffee & Tea – 10955 N 114th Street, Scottsdale, AZ, 85259
Dreaming of a tropical getaway? Kona Coffee is truly a one-of-a-kind place to get a cup of joe. They source their coffee beans from Kona, Hawaii, to bring Arizonans a taste of paradise!
This coffee shop is set up mainly as a drive-thru where the staff can step right out to your car, or you can go inside to order your drink and take some fun photos with their Hawaiian-themed photo props.
Pro Tip: Looking for a great cold brew? You have to try the vanilla macademia cold brew coffee from Kona! It is so smooth and delicious without any creamers or sweeteners. Yum!
Dutch Bros – 15600 N Hayden Road, Scottsdale, AZ, 85260
Known for its rad 90’s vibe, excellent customer service, and an endless amount of choices on the menu, Dutch Bros coffee is a must! Deciding on a drink of choice can be difficult as there are so many options to choose from (so you’ll want to view the full menu online), but you won’t ever be disappointed! Choose from coffee, teas, lemonade and sodas… all served iced or blended. If you’re feeling adventurous, ask a friendly team member to surprise you! You’ll end up with a drink that reminds you of your childhood or a new magical coffee you’ve never tried before! Two of our faves: palm beach soda and a black forest iced coffee. If you try one, let us know what you think. Warning: It is very easy to become a regular at Dutch Bros. Don’t forget to ask for a punch card so you can get a free drink after 10 purchases. We won’t admit how fast ours fills up!
The Coffee Bean – 8877 N. Scottsdale Blvd., #502, Scottsdale, AZ, 85253
This cozy coffee shop offers both indoor and outdoor seating. It’s perfect for chatting with a friend or catching up on work. Enjoy smooth espresso over crushed ice. Heads Up – the flavors are powder, not syrup. So they do contain dairy. We love that coffee bean did not leave out the tea! They have a variety and many readily available. They even have sweets! Be sure to check out the daily specials. We love the green cherry blossom and black peach teas. The coffee Bean offers a rewards app to earn extra points for free treats! You will get a free brewed coffee or hot tea just for downloading the app!
