ladies lunch in Scottsdale (or surrounding area)

I love Arcadia Farms (in Scottsdale) but want to find another beautiful place to take my friend for a Bday lunch. We like patio seating ( a setting such as Arcadia Farms). I live in Mesa but am willing to drive to Scottsdale or PV. I appreciate any ideas. TIA This board is great and hasn't steered me wrong yet.

  1. Here are a few that I love!

    Farm at South Mountain (santa barbara catering, great salads/sandwiches)
    AZ88 (lunch is M-F only, downtown sctsdale, great patio)
    Postino Wine Cafe (salads, panini, lovely, patio/open-air seating, Arcadia)
    Chelsea's Kitchen (lovely patio, great salads, Arcadia)
    Pallate (live music sometimes - SO darling and delicious, dwtn phx)
    Cibo (also darling and delicious, lunch M-F only, dwtn phx)

    I'm sure others will have some additional good ideas!

    1. vincents bistro is truly spectacular for this sort of lunch
      taylors cafe is another

      1. How about House of Tricks over in Tempe? The food there is incredible, and their patio is utterly gorgeous. Kirsten's suggestion of the Farm at South Mountain is an excellent one too; there's nothing quite like the place.
