Orange Table for Under $10
Orange Table is a little hard to find, as it's tucked away in the Scottsdale Mall, but it's well worth the search because it provides a great lunch for less than $10.
It's close to Pepin--just look for the, what else, orange tables populating the eatery. The place has a hip vibe, with a young staff and lots of students who go there to study. It's also a favorite spot of dog owners, as canines are welcome on the patio.
The menu's super-healthy, as the spot features organic greens and natural, hormone-free meat. Sample items include Greek salads, green chili cheddar chicken melts and blue cheese burgers.
We got a Veggie sandwich ($8.50), with hummus, alfalfa and avocado. It was a huge, filling, flavorful sandwich.
Our pal got an Artisan Tuna Melt ($9.50), with Provolone, tomato and red onion. It looked and smelled tasty.
All sandwiches are served with chips, a pickle and a chocolate. And if you sit on the patio, you might be tempted to feed all the chips to the cute birds who hang out!
For those who like breakfast for lunch, Orange Table serves it until 2 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday (until 11 a.m. on weekdays.) You can chow down on banana nut pancakes, omelettes and fried egg sandwiches, all for less than $10.
