Just twenty minutes north of where we live, you can step into an entirely new landscape–the sweet town of Cave Creek.  I grew up in Tucson and Cave Creek has a similar aesthetic in its hillsides, greenery and beautiful homes.  The temperatures are also about five to ten degrees cooler than where we live.  Its main street is lined with funky antique and furniture stores, biker bars, restaurants and coffee shops.

The past two weekends we visited Cave Creek Coffee Company (C4), once with Roxy and once with my Dad for an early Father’s Day treat.  We regret that we never visited in the pleasant winter months.  At least it was still tolerable to sit outside.  I had an amazing veggie wrap and soy latte.  Yum!  We’ll likely be back soon.
