I will be in the Scottsdale area from Aug 31 thru Sep 06, visiting family. Any great places for ice cream, shakes, baked goods, pastries, other desserts recommended in the PHX metro? Also, are there any good places to chow down on an ACAI BOWL?

      I always go to Sugar Bowl for ice cream when in Scottsdale. It is the place for ice cream there and has been for decades. Also good sorbets.

        I've been to Scottsdale once and made it a point to go to the Sugar Bowl and it does not dissapoint.

        I am headed back there this week and it's going to be my first stop :D

        mj breads - tammie coe - they are sold out of LGO or the shop itself (all in the same plaza 40th and campbell

        I like whatever brioche bread they have topped (with fruit or something sweet) for the day - lgo makes a good red velvet cake which they sell by the slice

        Scratch (indian school and miller) has some good desserts as well

        I love the ice cream Cowboy Ciao serves with their bread pudding :) 5 spice ice cream
