A well-formed sandwich is like a fashionable dresser: both employ a nice use of layers, attract the envious eyes of onlookers, and sometimes require a toothpick to keep themselves together. For $5, you get $10 worth of fresh sandwiches, salads, gourmet market goods, and more at The Cider Mill. The Scottsdale market and eatery carries on the wild-west cowboy tradition of serving up fresh-grown and healthy fare amid a shop of the finest packaged local delicacies.
The decision between eating out and purchasing culinary goods for home cooking may waver in the face of available time and piercing hunger. Shopping for culinary products at The Cider Mill is like a get-out-of-cooking-free card, offering fast and affordable delicacies that trump quick-fix burgers and fries. The quaint dining area is nestled among the shop's gourmet fare, and features a menu highlighted by the fresh herbs and tomatoes grown on site. House-made sandwich selections include the warm Cider Mill dip (roast beef, melted provolone, and horseradish served with dipping jus, Brit's brie, and a dill pickle, $5.95), as well as a build-your-own option ($5.95) to tempt control freaks with their own choice of meat, cheese, bread, and toppings. Popeye aspirants will savor the spinach salad with grilled prosciutto, walnuts, dried cherries, hardboiled egg, and balsamic ($5.95), and fickle foodies will delight in a classic caprese with fresh mozzarella and house-grown tomato and basil ($6.95). A customizable chili menu ($4.95), allows you to order the meaty classic with any combination of noodles, cheese, onions, and beans; and seasonal, homemade soups ($3.95) rotated daily. A homemade brownie ($3.95), cookie ($3.95), or slice of the pie du jour ($3.95) is an ideal way to finish a meal or punctuate a day of reading The Autobiography of Alice B. Tolkas.
The chefs at the breezy, family-owned-and-operated café and market perform their culinary feats in an open kitchen that looks out over the shopping and dining areas, and the clean interior is adorned with worn-wood antique furniture. Peruse the market's offerings and you'll find bottles of Queen Creek olive oil (starting at $10), from Arizona's only olive farm and oil producer, alongside English Brother apple cider ($3.99 a pint) and the natural and plant-derived Cucina bath products (starting at $15). Bring your Bhutanese cousin to select a local culinary souvenir, or simply stop in for a fresh sandwich and cup of hot soup.
