Updated: Harvest is no longer open. The space is now home to Soul Cafe.
Located on the corner of Miller Road and Pinnacle Peak in Scottsdale AZ, Harvest restaurant is a welcome newcomer to the neighborhood. Since it just opened, it is offering breakfast and lunch for a few weeks prior to launching dinner service. Excited for a new place to eat, we took the opportunity to try it out.
Harvest is a casual dining restaurant that will appeal to anyone. The focus is on fresh, delicious American food. The interior has a lot of wood and orange accents and even has a wood “sculpture” above the counter area. Indoor dining has booths and tables and there is a large patio area that overlooks Pinnacle Peak Road. Service was great. The staff was very friendly and attentive from the hostesses to our server.
Breakfast is served all day and the menu is extensive- omelets, pancakes, waffles, lox platters, and egg dishes are just some of the offerings. They even offer gluten-free pancakes and toast. If you want some fruit with your pancakes or waffles, and additional $2 will get you a large serving of strawberries, bananas and blueberries. The silver dollar pancakes were cooked perfectly and the serving was very big. The breakfast potatoes with potato rounds and onions were also tasty.
The lunch menu also has plenty to choose from. Choices include multiple types of burgers, chicken sandwiches, salads, wraps and other sandwiches. The turkey reuben was very good and not greasy as they can sometimes be. The sweet potato fries are definitely a good choice and the regular fries are hand cut.
Our first trip to Harvest was a good one and it was definitely worth the wait during its construction. I am sure in a few months it will have cemented its spot as a neighborhood staple.
UPDATE: Dinner service is slated to start on December 1, 2009.
