Cave Creek Coffee Co.

There's little we love more than an afternoon hike through the Jewell of the Creek Preserve, then a quick jump over to the Cave Creek Coffee Company for wine tasting, good food and a little live music. After a post-hike cabernet, we go for the Vegetarian Sandwich, piled with roasted Portobello mushroom, fresh mozzarella, tomato slices, fresh spinach, and pesto on toasted garlic bread. Also nice is the aptly-named Big Ass Burrito (also available as the Half Ass Burrito if you're feeling like a smaller portion), full of fresh lettuce and cheeses, beans and meat of your choice. Try the Smoked Salmon Sandwich, flaky fish smothered in a tangy sauce and folded neatly into fresh-baked bread. Visit the roomy, wood-paneled wine bar and sample more than two dozen different brands by the glass while munching on gourmet eats or check your e-mail on your laptop using the free wi-fi network. On certain nights, you can also take in a concert in the backyard, open-air performance space, where various acoustic and Americana musicians strum and sing. Then again, if you're on the run, just grab a cup of fresh-roasted java to go from the coffee bar.
