Sonoma Coffee Cafe


Lucky for my colleagues and I, an adorable little coffee shop opened up down the street: Sonoma Coffee Cafe & Drive Thru. (It happens to be right off the 101 at Via de Ventura–and have a drive thru–so the location is actually quite convenient for anyone commuting in Scottsdale.) The atmosphere is cute and cozy, with large leather sofas and a European-inspired mural on the wall. My favorite drink so far is one of the “Sonoma Specialties,” the Sonoma chai latte with raspberry and vanilla. The specialties menu also includes a spiced mocha with Ghiradelli chocolate (can’t go wrong there, can you?) and a handful of tea lattes. My co-workers heart the the vanilla latte. There’s also a selection of blended ice drinks offered at Sonoma Coffee Cafe like a White Russian Frappe with espresso, white chocolate and coffee royale and a Matcha green tea frappe with peppermint. The latter sounds especially cooling come summer.

Hungry? Sonoma Coffee Cafe also had a selection of breakfast items like egg-and-cheese sandwiches, Belgian waffles, fruit parfaits, muffins, oatmeal and bagels, as well as paninis, salads and a soup of the day for lunchtime visitors. For dessert, avert your eyes to the gelato case where you can get a cupful of cool, creamy peanut butter cup or raspberry tiramisu, among other flavors. Ooh, and I spied a carrot cake slice that looked heavenly. Next time. 480.278.8228,

    Why have i never seen this place? i drive by there everyday and could certainly use a drive through coffee spot.

    You are sooo right. I stumbled upon this place yesterday. Definitely try there Vanilla Latte. I often grab a latte from Starbucks and notice that soon after my coffee has a bitter aftertaste. This drink does not. Halfway through it was still as creamy and flavorful as the first sip. So all you Scottsdale socialites grab a cup of Joe from our city’s newest hidden treasure.
