Visited Sugar Bowl with my family while in Scottsdale and wasn’t disappointed! We had a malt and a specialty sundae. My four yr old loved trying both:) We don’t realize there is also a throwback arcade inside that let my lil one have some fun!

We stopped in twice in 2 days. It was that good. They have about 20 or so flavors. We tried coffee, butter pecan and almond praline. All were loaded with flavor. The menu has lots of sundae choices. Quaint old fashioned decor and wait staff...More

Good ice cream, reasonable prices! Looks like an old fashioned, classic ice cream cafe. A little difficult to get a table during busy times.
