What a charming step back into the days of soda fountains! The staff were great, quick service, and awesome ice cream. I loved my Sundae! Fun treat at a fun stop!

Each year on our annual trip to Arizona we stop at the Sugar Bowl. It is nostalgic and the food was good. Don't stop with just a sandwich. Go for the ice cream. Portions are huge and delicious. Great place to stop. Don't miss out.

When in old town Scottsdale, a stop by the Sugar Bowl for ice cream is a must. It is a pink and white trip back to the 50's. They serve up smooth ice cream and sorbets. I had the Gosh-Awful-Gooey Banana split. It has coffee ice cream with caramel sauce, raspberry sorbet and split bananas smothered in marshmallow cream sauce.... More

This place was fun to visit. The food was yummy (all of my children ATE! 4, 7, & 9), the atmosphere was nostalgic, and the ice cream we had wad a tasty treat! My only complaints are that it was a little pricey for kids (no kids menu), and that it was a little rundown looking. Overall, a nice experience.

Seen this place while walking around Scottsdale and decided to quench our sweet-tooth. We're glad we did, as soon as you walk in you feel like you just jumped backed decades, which in this case is a good thing. Me and my wife both tried the shakes and were very happy.

Had the Golden Nugget, orange sherbet and sprite, creamy and very refreshing!!!! Hubby had Dusty Road, a chocolaty delight, tons of sundaes, shakes, ice cream concoctions to choose from. All amid a pretty in pink decor with layered pink tiffany lamps and bright pink booths and tables/chairs. Counter service available, and they serve some lunch items 😊

We went to sugar bowl to get some ice cream after lunch. My husband and I each ordered a top hat sundae, but the waiter only heard one which was probably a good thing - it was pretty well sized. The "cream puff" around the ice cream lacked flavor. I kept trying to find items on the menu that had... More

What a fun treat, an old fashioned ice cream parlor. With large sandwich, salad menu, with several 1950 style choices. Amazing ice cream, any which way you could want it. Very affordable prices, no up-charge for ambiance. Much larger than it looks from the outside, not at as much wait as you would expect. Great fun, great food, go enjoy!

We always skip dinner one night and have Ice Cream at the Sugar Bowl. It is an old style Ice Cream Parlor. They can handle larger groups in their backroom or if it is under 6 people you can easily fit in the front part of the parlor. Many choices of ice cream and toppings, fun for all.

Stopped in for a burger with the family and everyone had some type of sandwich that they enjoyed. Cute restaurant with good service and good food.
