Cuppers Coffee House

Cuppers Coffee House’s atmosphere isn't the only thing that makes it memorable. Sure, the shop is housed inside of a Victorian home—the last in Arizona with wooden quoins on its corners—but the carefully selected coffee and handmade drinks served inside make the quaint surrounds feel all the more special. The staff strives to curate an upper-tier selection of organic javas; after all, a “cupper” is the name for a professional coffee taste-tester. And so they use Arizona-roasted Arabica beans and feature two single origin blends–-one dark and one light––each week. From there, they blend coffee with milk to create creamy frappes and melt Dutch cocoa, Ghirardelli, and Mexican chocolate into a range of mochas. As for their espresso, they keep that recipe top-secret: they roast a special combination of beans to give it a chocolate undertone, like nearly every satirical essay written by Willy Wonka. While many of the beverages sound good enough to eat, Cuppers Coffee House also serves breakfast and lunch plates to quell munchies all day. Homemade syrup and whipped cream top crispy Belgium waffles and thin, "skinny" pancakes, while savory selections include house-made quiche and albacore tuna salad stuffed betwixt thick slices of toasted wheat bread. As for dessert, Cuppers has that covered, too: the staff bakes fresh cupcakes, lemon bars, scones, muffins, and coffeecake in house.

From its humble beginnings in Kankakee, Illinois, in 1938, Dairy Queen has grown from a delicious experiment in soft-serve ice cream to a household name with more than 5,900 restaurants around the world. The shop's signature frozen delights are built upon frosty foundations of creamy chocolate or vanilla soft serve, which swirl idyllically into cones, cups, sundaes, Peanut Buster parfaits, and the chain's iconic Blizzard treats, blended with crumbled candy and other mix-ins. Ice-cream cakes cleverly conceal surprise fillings of fudge and chocolate crunch between layers of vanilla and chocolate ice cream, providing sweet, sliceable sustenance for birthday parties and other special occasions.

Fruit rules the roost on the other side of the slushy emporium, where Orange Julius blends its signature frothy drinks crafted from fruit juice, ice, and a "magic” powdered sweetener that explains why they disappear from most customers’ cups minutes after the first delicious sip. Real fruit purée forms the basis for the shop's smoothies, which also come in diet-friendly light versions that boast one-third fewer calories than regular smoothies.

He spots her from across the room; a mask-clad enigma. Fellow partygoers wink in and out of focus as a strobe light pulses and he draws closer. Finally, he tears away the mask to reveal … a single tier of chocolate cake. Inspired by eccentric songstress Lady Gaga and topped with a mask ripped straight from the music video, Cakepop Couture's Poker Face cake is a prime example of the over-the-top confections that get owners Nicole and Chris's creativity flowing and partygoers hitting on inanimate objects. The cake exudes a signature flair shared by each of the shop’s cake pops.

Infused with flavors that range from traditional chocolate and red velvet to snickerdoodle and key lime pie, each dessert is baked and decorated to-order.

In 1966, Chuck Mabery bought a cattle ranch that dated back to the late 19th century, planting the seeds of the Blazin' M Ranch. After stints herding and growing vegetables, the flood of 1993 forced the Mabery family to start over, inspiring them to show off their musical talents at a traditional chuck-wagon dinner staged on the property. Fully renovated in 2010, the ranch now hosts an authentic Arizona frontier town where visitors can experience the cowboy life through such activities as lassoing mechanical steers, shooting wax bullets out of a real Colt .45, and learning how to easily covert ten-gallon hats into metric. A selection of shops fits customers out in Western-themed apparel, the copper Spur Saloon serves local wines and microbrews, and a museum delves into the history of the ranch, pioneer-era Arizona, and the Yavapai-Apache Nation. An old-time photo studio, "Pistols and Petticoats", allows groups to have their likeness captured while wearing Victorian costumes. At the museum, the unique Wood'n West Gallery enthralls visitors with moving dioramas of Western life, hand carved over 30 years by a master whittler.

At Hog Wild Restaurant, Dawn and Mike West marinate their baby back ribs for hours and slow-smoke their beef brisket and pork. It’s this Chicago-style “low-and-slow” cooking method that has helped the couple—who opened a pair of restaurants in the Windy City before relocating to Cottonwood—repeatedly win the Verde Valley Readers’ Choice Award for Best Barbecue in the Verde Independent. And the good press doesn’t end there; in 2009, the eatery earned recognition as one of the top six barbecue places in Arizona from the Arizona Republic, which praised the cooks for their “unforgettable” baby back ribs with “pitch-perfect sweet sauce.”

Hog Wild supplements its tender beef brisket, pulled pork, and ribs with nonbarbecue items, fittingly from the Wests’ hometown. Italian beef sandwiched between Chicago’s soft Gonnella bread, Italian sausages, and hot dogs topped with very specific fixings round out the menu.
