The Eddy makes a splash

Paul Wernes, Travel Editor

The Eddy, an art gallery and gift shop in Cave Creek, opened on September 19 and it has become a hit in a matter of days.

In addition to a gallery and gift shop, food trucks gather there every Saturday.

“This is my first time coming here and I can already tell that I will be back. This is such a great place to be on the weekends during the evening. The food is great and the ambiance is out of this world,” said Heidi Gardner, a first time customer.

The Eddy, boasts a collection of extraordinary art, unique handmade gifts from local Cave Creek artists, and on Saturdays, delicious foods from various food trucks.

The Eddy is open Wednesday through Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.

There is one food truck that is currently stationed on the property on 6006 E. Cave Creek Road called the Hibachibot.

Eddie and Virginia Schenck run the food truck and The Eddy.

“Never did we dream of owning a food truck… never did we dream of having lines… let alone lines so long you can’t see the end of them,” said Virginia Schenck.

The Hibachibot food truck serves Korean barbeque food.

“The exterior has an industrial look, there are huge robot sculptures made of scrap metal throughout the area. I think that it is very unique because nowhere else has artwork like this. You can tell that they put in hard work to make everything,” said Gianna Lazzaro, a junior.

The exterior artwork is made out of old bike and car parts. Within the artwork are chains and steel rods, which create the robots.

On Saturdays, multiple food trucks show up in the parking lot. There are various types of food available for the people.

The Re Di Roma food truck serves freshly made, wood-fired pizza, pasta, salad and desserts.

The Eddy is a very unique place for food trucks. The location acts as a welcome to the town of Cave Creek as it is the first building on the left side of North Cave Creek Road.
