Eats and Treats at the Sugar Bowl in Scottsdale

You can’t miss the iconic pink building of the Sugar Bowl in Old Town Scottsdale.

The décor of this old-fashioned ice cream parlor pays homage to cartoonist Bil Keane, who immortalized the Sugar Bowl in his Family Circus comic strips. You can find Keane’s artwork on the walls and available for purchase in the gift shop.

With a name like Sugar Bowl you know they’re famous for their desserts but they’ve been serving soups, salads and sandwiches since 1958. Don’t look for french fries with your burger. Hot sandwiches come with potato chips, a pickle and a serving of cole slaw.

After your meal, head next door with your kids to their arcade where they can play air hockey, hoop shoot and skee ball. Exchange ticket winnings for goodies from the treasure chest. Also, you can reserve the arcade for your next birthday party or other small gathering.

Whether you’re an out-of-town visitor or a longtime Valley resident, stop by the Sugar Bowl for a taste of nostalgia.
