As most people who live in the Phoenix metro area will tell you, Scottsdale contains some of the best restaurants compared to other suburbs. From upscale romantic restaurants to low-key, mom-and-pop establishments, Scottsdale is the ideal suburb to explore if you wish to have a variety of dining options. One of those spots which fits into the healthy fast-food category is D Lite, where organic ingredients are transformed into extraordinary dishes. Yet, the café/restaurant is more than just health food because it strives to use earth-friendly materials and sources ingredients locally when possible.
Beverage Bevy at D Lite in Scottsdale
If you are in search of fresh smoothies, excellently brewed coffee, cold-pressed juice or protein shakes, D Lite in Scottsdale offers all of this and then some. In fact, many visitors make their early morning visit just to order a power-packed pick-me-up before starting the day. The baristas also present a nice selection of iced and hot coffee. Try the Nitro Toddy, a cold-brewed espresso perfect for those hot summer days. Moreover, the smoothies and shakes come with invigorating ingredients full of vitamins and nutrients. For example, the Vegan Buzz Shake uses chocolate whey plant protein, espresso, banana, peanut butter, ice and an additional shot of vitamins. For a complex, healthy smoothie, order the Green Lemonade made with kale, banana, pineapple, mango, garlic, ginger, lemon and cilantro.
On the D-Menu
Open for breakfast and lunch, the kitchen here prepares healthy, yet tasty dishes based on the same concept as the drink menu. If you arrive for breakfast, the bagels and bialys will provide some morning carbs while the burritos keep everyone happy with options such as the Traditional, Veggie and the AZ. The lunch menu presents a curated selection of items, from sandwiches and salads to burgers and bowls. The Chicken Breast Panini Sandwich is one of the local favorites and the large salads pack a daily dose of fiber alongside innovative side dishes like sweet beets, hummus plate and soups. Moreover, the burgers are not your traditional beef patties either; these ones made with black beans and quinoa are not only healthier, but they taste just as delicious!
With five locations throughout the Phoenix metro area (two in Scottsdale, two in Phoenix and one in the college town of Tempe), D Lite provides healthy eating all around town. The Scottsdale location at 2613 North Scottsdale Road is also a convenient spot for exploring nearby Old Town before or after your meal.
