Morning Coffee – Cartel Coffee Lab in Old Town Scottsdale. I will often stop in there on my way to work or if I have a meeting over that way. The Baristas are always friendly and in my opinion, the coffee is the best in town.Photo by Jason Betz on Unsplash
Taliesin West is a great place to find a rare read or fun gift. If you ask me, anything and everything at Taliesin is my favorite. The history of the buildings, the stories behind each and every design element, along with the memories I have of working at The School of Architecture just make everything feel special.
Business Lunch at Volanti – What is better than enjoying lunch and watching the private planes take off and land at the Scottsdale Air Park? The prices are reasonable and the food is incredible. Highly recommend scheduling a lunch meeting there or even a happy hour. One-of-a-kind atmosphere!

Ristorante Giuseppe – This hidden family-owned gem is one of my favorite Italian spots in the Valley. Located in North Scottsdale, you immediately fall in love with the charm of this place when you walk in! I recommend you try the Baked Ziti and a Cannoli for dessert. Everything is so good and the service is very fun and authentic.
Guido’s Meat Deli – One of Scottsdale’s best-kept secrets. Born and raised in Chicago, I was excited to find this deli. You can stop in for a quick lunch, dinner or even take-out for your whole family or you can peruse their incredible Italian market to cook an Italian meal of your own.
