As of last week downtown Scottsdale has a stylish, new hangout for coffee and craft beer fans.
Sip Coffee and Beer House, located at 3617 North Goldwater Road, is now open and serving a small menu of breakfast and lunch items, caffeinated drinks from Cartel coffee, craft beer, wine, and a menu of cocktails written by a certain well-known mixologist. The coffee and beer house will be hosting a grand opening event today from 6 p.m. to close, offering live piano at 7 p.m. and food/drink specials all night long.

The coffeehouse, owned by Tida and Travis Radevski, is a part of the new Creative Center of Scottsdale, a redevelopment project involving three buildings on the west side of Scottsdale Road just north of Osborn Road. Once construction is complete -- the two other buildings are still under construction -- Sip will be connected to its chef's nearby restaurant, Brat Haus, via a back patio area.
Chef Payton Curry has created a small menu of breakfast and lunch items for Sip, which will also offer a daily selection of pastries. Food options include three sandwiches (a BLT, chicken salad, and an Italian Grinder), a hummus plate, two salads (lentil and kale), a breakfast burrito and frittata, and the same house made pretzels served at Brat Haus.
We tried the breakfast frittata, which made for a very satisfying light meal. It features local eggs, homemade bacon, spinach Swiss cheese, pesto, and cream sauce, all topped with a handful of greens.
