Without food and drink, humans' hollow bodies would be one-note whistles howling monotone melodies in the wind. Treat your esophageal flute to a tastier tune with today's Groupon. For $10, you get $20 worth of fresh, farm-to-table fare and drinks at Cafe ZuZu, conveniently located in Hotel Valley Ho.
Cafe ZuZu lovingly blankets bellies in contemporary comfort-food favorites, made with good-for-you local, seasonal, and organic ingredients. For an early morning palate perking, enjoy a garden-fresh veggie omelette ($11.50) or cheesy smoked-salmon scramble ($11.50), or sink your sweet teeth into a stack of wheat pancakes with dried fruit and nut butter ($8). Midday munchers can get lost in delicious salad, sandwich, and entree options during lunch, including the spicy southwestern chicken salad ($13.50) and hearty beef stroganoff ($17). For dinner, cover the table in a platter of the day's artisan cheese selection ($14) and continue to satisfy the senses with grilled chicken piccata ($17) or a luscious plate of liver and onions ($15). Wash down savory bites by taking a bath in a liquid dessert, or more weightily top off taste buds with butterscotch bread pudding ($6).
Vibrant lights and clean lines provide a contemporary backdrop for ZuZu's retro-chic interior, ideal for winding down the day or winding up the night. In addition to serving up extensive menus of fresh breakfast, lunch, and dinner fare, Café ZuZu invites customers to indulge in a handcrafted cocktail or luxurious libation while looking out over the pool, wondering why water can't taste more like lemon meringue pie.
This Groupon cannot be used in combination with happy-hour promotions.

- When it comes to retro-chic, cool doesn't get much cooler than the historic Hotel Valley Ho in Old Town Scottsdale. Inside this stylishly refurbished mid-century-modern icon sits Cafe ZuZu, a comfortable, semi-secluded hangout offering three squares of modern American comfort food. – Nikki Buchanan, Arizona Republic
- My mouth is watering just writing about these grits! They are perfectly cooked and tender. They are super creamy and have shredded cheddar cheese on top. Add a few sprinkles of salt, per the salt lover in me, and you have the most delicious side ever created by man, in my opinion. Cafe ZuZu of course gets the Food-Tramp-Stamp of approval! – Erin, Food Tramp Diaries
- I kept expecting Dean Martin to come around the corner. Well worth the drive across town from my hotel. – eelsongs56, TripAdvisor
