Phoenix/Scottsdale Sunday Brunch

Just made reservations at the Phoenician for August only to find out that the Terrace Restaurant & its magnificent Sunday Brunch is closed until the fall! Can you please guide me to next best Champagne Buffet (Wrigley Mansion, etc.) with an elegant feel? It's become our tradition & I don't want to disappoint!

  1. You might try the Camelback Inn. Although, they too are renovating and I am not sure if they are still having their Sunday Brunch. It was excellent.

    Also, T. Cooks at The Royal Palms has a fabulous Sunday brunch...very elegant, great food, and a spectacular setting. If you haven't yet been to The Royal Palms, you're in for a treat.

      I couldn't agree with ejs more about the Royal Palms brunch, but it is much smaller in scale than the Phoenician. At T. Cooks you order an entree, and then enjoy the small buffet. It is much smaller than Phoenician. It's really great (our favorite in Phoenix), but much different. In the past I would have referred you to Marquessa at the Princess, but the restaurant has been replaced, and I haven't heard if the Princess does a Sunday brunch anymore.

        We've done T Cooks three times, and each time has been excellent.


      2. The Camelback Inn brunch is now located at the Camelback Golf Club at Cheney and Mockingbird (5 minutes from the hotel). We were there for Father's Day and it was wonderful. The setting overlooks the golf course, Eggs Benedict and omelets made to order!, many breakfast items as well as the ususal roast beef/ham carving station, unlimited champagne, desserts, etc. For Father's Day it was $39.95 pp. It was great!
