This little cafe tucked in a courtyard down the street from the Hotel Valley Ho is one of my favorite places for coffee, breakfast, or a quick bite removed from Scottsdale’s tourist crowds. The Estonian owners named the cafe after Estonian composer Alo Mattiissen. There’s not a lot of exotica here, just many delicious things to eat, from the interesting to the basic, from yummy breakfast dishes (corn-flake–crusted French toast, Estonian dessert bread, omelets) to a variety of lunch sandwiches.
