Kohnie's (Scottsdale)

Kohnie's

4225 East Camelback, 602-952-9948

Kohnie's is one of my favorite spots in Phoenix. Breakfast can be coffee and some of the BEST scones in that I have ever had or if I have time-one of Ellie's egg creations.

I love the breakfast burrito, papas con huevos, huevos rancheros or really anything else that Ellie makes. On Saturday's cinnamon rolls are a special, but that could be moved to Sunday depending on Kohnie's whim.

Meet Kohnie, he has his own sense of humor and once you become a regular-you understand the punch lines. The first time I went on a Saturday to try one of the famous cinnamon rolls, I found myself in a sea of people badgering Kohnie and he was badgering back at them. Kohnie knew everyone in there and their orders the minute they came in. If you are really a regular, you walk behind the counter and serve yourself your own coffee. I waited quietly until it was my turn and then ordered a cinnamon roll heated with butter and a scone to eat while I was waiting for the cinnamon roll to heat-NIRVANA. The scone is a misunderstood creation that is better left to a specialist like Kohnie's wife Ellie. You can also order the scones from them frozen and you can take them home and bake them yourself( great way to impress, no one needs to know that you did not bake them). I came back a couple of days later and Kohnie recognized me and remembered that I waited patiently during the Saturday rush. I went with some of his wife's egg dishes that are faultless

Papas con Huevos-order the potatoes well down for a crispy treat

Huevos Rancheros-good as any that I have had

Coffee is all top-notch and some named after regulars

I better get this part in here now, Kohnie's is not cheap, but it is worth it.

Lunch is very good, sandwiches and salads. The Chinese chicken salad is excellent. What has not been done to the "Chinese chicken salad", but this one stands out from the crowd. If you come during lunch time, one after another gets ordered.

Do not forget to get a cookie for dessert

Konie's scones are that good. The name "SCONES" should be reserved for those created by Ellie. Anything anywhere else is a poor imitation. I also recall a sunday breakfast special of cream cheese stuffed french toast that was extraordinary.

AHurwich,

The stuffed french toast is excellent and they also do an eggs benedict on the weekend with either canadian bacon or salmon. Have you ever bought the scones frozen to make at home?
