“Great breakfast in a small cafe”

We were walking looking for breakfast and saw this small café tucked back in off the main drag. We enjoyed it very much, the food was done perfectly and the owner Steve was very welcoming and gave us names of other restaurants to try for dinner in the area.

Ok so if you like to try out mom and pop places, Alo Cafe is a definite must. The Estonian background coupled with a pride in making virtually everything from scratch makes this one of the best surprised dines we've ever had. I ordered the spinach omelette which was good, but my fiancee ordered the pancakes with a fruit topping. The pancakes were AMAZING, and i'm not a big pancake person. The freshness in the fruit on top of it, last time i had anything that "fresh" was in Denmark.

It's hard to go wrong with this place. It is small so expect to wait for a seat or go early. Make sure you don't leave without talking to the owner and finding out more about the history of the restaurant and himself.

We came across this lovely little café by chance. Within easy walking distance of Old Town Scottsdale, this is an absolute gem. Went there for breakfast and had the best fried eggs ever, plus beautifully cooked back with potato cubes. Even the toast was great. The owners were very welcoming and friendly. Has internet too which was mega-fast. Will become regulars whenever we are back in Scottsdale
