Scottsdale Coffee Shops to Fuel Your Caffeine Habit

There’s a lot to discover in Scottsdale — endless outdoor adventure, incredible architecture, world-class golf, and so much more. If you need a caffeine boost before tackling your itinerary, fuel-up at these Scottsdale coffee shops. From specialty drinks and seasonally inspired sippers to the classics and cold brew, you’ll never wonder where to get coffee again.




This cozy coffee shop in the 5th Avenue District caters to coffee connoisseurs with seasonally driven specialty coffee drinks and signature brews like their popular Cardamom Rose Latte. Berdena's light and airy interior is complemented by a baby blue espresso machine, picture windows, and ample indoor and outdoor seating where you can camp out while digging into a breakfast sandwich or their award-winning avocado toast.




Coffee culture meets car culture at Fourtillfour, a specialty coffee shop and roastery nestled in the Scottsdale Arts District. The modest coffee shop has a lush tree-covered patio which makes it an ideal locale to begin your morning ritual. And each Saturday Fourtillfour hosts a Cars and Coffee event that brings out vintage car collectors, spectators, and passersby searching for some of the best local coffee Scottsdale has to offer. 


Cartel Coffee Lab


Thoughtfully poured cortados and cappuccinos await you at Cartel Coffee Lab. This buzzy Scottsdale staple is popular among locals and visitors alike for its craveable caffeinated drinks and small bites like chewy brownies and housemade pop-tarts. And their cold coffee drinks like the nitro canned cold brew are great for when you’re on-the-go.


Press Coffee

With two Scottsdale locations, your next coffee fix is never too far away. Press Coffee’s own locally roasted beans find their way into cold coffee sippers, classic espresso drinks, and a shortlist of cold brew and organic agave-drenched shakers that range from chai to chocolate peanut butter.


Sip Coffee and Beer House
