So many favorites, so hold on tight and get ready to make your list of places to try! You’ll also find homemade pickles and some of the best caramels made from goat’s milk right by the register. Slickables in Downtown Mesa is a super cute little ice cream shop that specializes in ice cream cookie sandwiches. Had to add them to my list because of these crazy good fries. Churn in Phoenix for some of our favorite homemade ice cream. Pin For Later 🙂 Welcome to Picky Palate, my online kitchen!Just recently found this breakfast spot a few weeks ago, it’s called Butters Pancakes and Cafe located in Scottsdale. Their cookie ice cream sandwich makes my heart sing. You pick out your flavor of cookie and then your flavor of ice cream. We love their burgers and shakes too 🙂 Fractured Prune in Chandler has some pretty awesome warm baked to order doughnuts. Their cookies and mint is one of my favorites on the planet 🙂 Amanda and I recently had their salted caramel cookie sandwiched with their madagascar vanilla ice cream. You'll usually find me with a cookie in one hand and a salad in the other.
