Shine, our annual pocket guide to all-things Scottsdale, is out. And this year, local artist Luster Kaboom is taking readers on an illustrated ride through the city's best spots for food, drink, art, and entertainment.
Here, in no particular order, are the four best places for a snack in Scottsdale. (Note: we've updated the list online from its original five due to the bakery Butter & Me shuttering after the publication's press date).
