Restaurant of the Week: Proof Canteen

Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North is a long-adored Valley treasure for celebrating the special moments in life–including a Saturday-morning meal with the family. The breakfast menu at Proof Canteen–the resort’s casual comfort-food eatery–offers some of the best under-the-radar a.m. eats that might just rival its famed pretzel knots and barbecue dishes.

For breakfast, lunch and dinner, Proof Canteen is Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North‘s casual, laidback restaurant, a companion to its fine-dining Talavera. The family-friendly spot (check out the shuffleboard table!) whips up some of the Valley’s tastiest barbecue dishes alongside a standout Maine lobster roll, golden pretzel knots and many other adored favorites. Come morning time, though, guests and locals make their way to the restaurant to savor some of the most delicious–and unique–breakfast dishes in Scottsdale.

Of course, more traditional diners can choose from classic a.m. favorites like omelets, avocado toast, buttermilk pancakes and lox and bagels to pair with their latte or mimosa. However, this is no time to play it safe; a morning visit to Proof Canteen means trying something extra special.

Proof acai bowl

Case in point, the cocopiña waffle. This large-enough-to-feed-two serving features a malted waffle, coconut anglaise, pineapple-lime caramel, toasted coconut flakes, fresh strawberries, crunchy macadamia nuts and a dollop of vanilla whipped cream on top. Didn’t get to take a tropical escape this summer? This beautiful beast of a waffle will do the trick.

Proof Canteen even takes healthy(ish) dining to a new level. The acai bowl is a picture-perfect, refreshing medley of acai sorbet, blackberry sauce, coconut flakes, dark chocolate, raspberries, banana chips, cocoa nibbs, toasted hazelnuts and coconut drizzle. Bonus: Kids will love it, too. The peach-lavender parfait is another favorite for a lighter start to your day, with a base of lemon-vanilla Greek yogurt.

Those who wake up with a heartier appetite will love sticking a fork in the dishes that pay homage to Proof Canteen’s comfort-food roots. The Johnny Cake Benedict, features corn cake, green chili pork and a divine roasted poblano hollandaise, while the short rib skillet will keep you satisfied until the next morning.

Breakfast at Proof Canteen is served 7 to 11 a.m. daily. To learn more, visit
