The Henry: A favorite here at Bloguettes, the Henry is the place to be to connect and schedule business meetings over a cup of coffee! The inside is just as adorable as the outside, and their front door is a photo op must! It’s no wonder both Alex and Diana recommend this spot!

For a Bite to Eat

SumoMaya: The deck at SumoMaya is the perfect spot for a summer brunch, lunch, dinner, or social hour! Their vibrant color scheme is also perfect if you’re looking to add a pop of color to your feed!

Tea and Toast at DeSoto Central Market: The toast is so beautiful (Diana’s personal fave is the avocado and hard boiled egg!) and the baked goods are darling! Plus, the pop tarts in the shape of the state of AZ are totally IG worthy!

Windsor: Taking a photo in front of Windsor’s famous cassette tape wall is a must! Alex and her family even did their family photos there!

La Grande Orange: LGO has the cuuutest symbolic wall painting of a lemon kissing an orange, making it a photo op must! Plus, their coffee is great and so is the breakfast (Daybreaker is Diana’s personal fave) and it turns into a pizzeria at night! No wonder it’s a local favorite.

Places to Stay

Saguaro Hotel Scottsdale: Bright colors surround this hotel, and around every corner there’s a bright wall to lean against to show off your OOTD. Diana recommends staying or even just visiting for lunch to explore!

Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North: Take a walk between the southwestern style rooms at the Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North, and Diana says the desert landscape will make you look like a true desert child!
