Scottsdale: Appropriate setting for Easter Brunch?

Hey all,

My mom is visiting Arizona for the first time (from the Northeast).

I'm usually good at planning things but dropped the ball on booking reservations for Easter Brunch!!

There are not too many choices left. I'm thinking of Camelback Inn's "Hoppin' Jack's" restaurant. I believe it's by the pool, is that okay for Easter brunch or is it too casual of a setting? I have no idea what it looks like.

A friend suggested to me the Adobe golf course at the Biltmore Golf Course? Thoughts? Which is a better option?

Wanted to go to Phoenician, Royal Palms, Biltmore, Scottsdale Princess but they were all booked (of course!)

Thanks in advance!!

  1. For a somewhat casual but nice brunch that would give your mom a chance to enjoy the warm weather in a pretty spot, you could try The Farm at South Mountain. Their brunch menu looks tasty:

    I haven't been to many resort type brunches, hopefully someone else will chime in on those.

    6106 S 32nd St, Phoenix, AZ 85042

    1. Oooh the Farm is a great setting!
      I waited until the last minute too and we usually do a traditional resort style brunch. We ended up at the Princess at The Grill, they may still have room. Here are some that I always forget about but have great brunches- The Boulders (if you don't mind the drive), Desert Ridge Marriott, Westin Kierland, Sanctuary (not buffett). Good luck and Happy Easter!

      1. what about the Different Pointe of View at the Hilton
