Open since 1958, the family-owned Sugar Bowl Ice Cream Parlor is a Scottsdale landmark in the heart of Old Town. The pink, white, and black vintage decor is awash in nostalgia, and yes, very cute, but don't let the cuteness factor stop you from ducking in for a sweet treat. The "Super Fancy Sundaes" menu is a go-to for locals who know the pleasures of the Top Hat (creampuff filled with vanilla ice cream and smothered in hot fudge) and the Gosh-Awful-Gooey Banana Split, featuring Turkish coffee ice cream, caramel sauce, red raspberry sorbet, and marshmallow sauce. Not the best place to go if you're on a diet, although the Sugar Bowl also features a sandwich and salad menu with items for the calorie-counters. The walls of the Sugar Bowl feature original art from Bil Keane of "Family Circus" fame. The famous comic strip artist was a Paradise Valley resident who visited the Sugar Bowl with his own young family, and the ice cream parlor was often featured in his popular strip.
