Scottsdale (or Nearby) Sunday Brunch

  • 7

Hello Fellow Hounds...

I have out of town company coming soon and we want to have a memorable brunch (or possibly breakfast). Any recommendations on the "wow" places to go? Please give a basic idea of what is included and the cost. We're also interested in just breakfast recommendations - again looking for relaxing/wow kind of experiences!

Thanks in advance for your help!

  1. My favorite brunch in town is at T.Cooks at the Royal Palms. I think you will find it meets your requisite "wow" factor. If I remember correctly, the buffet is about $25, but you can also order ala carte or add an ala carte item to your buffet. The hotel is absolutely beautiful.

    1. Does it need to be Sunday? A great foodie time can be had at Vincent's Farmer's Market on Saturday mornings on Camelback. There's actually not much in terms of traditional farmer's market product/produce, but instead they have numerous food stations cranking out breakfast/brunch/lunch fare. It's a great choice for a small group as everyone can have something different, from omlettes and pasteries to pizza or roasted meats. Grab some wine and a tbale - it's a great way to start the weekend.

      During the week it's a pretty higher end eatery, but on Saturday mornings it's very casual and budget-friendly. In fact, I'm thinking of doing a weekly bike ride there!

        I'll second the reccomendation for Vincent's. There is nothing else like it in Phoenix and the food is outstanding. With the weather getting nicer it is a great way to spend a Saturday morning.

          Sadly, they don't get in until Saturday early eveing! But I can't wait to try Vincent's Farmers' Market another time myself! Thanks for the rec!

        2. Lon's at Hermosa is great. Spectacular setting, and delicious food. Lon's was around $20 a person, including an entree, and a basket of breads (and maybe beverage as well). Service was good, and eating on the patio is a real treat.

          Also hear good things about El Chorro, similar great setting. Haven't been myself, so can't give any reviews.

          We had a wonderful brunch at Wright's at The Biltmore. Obviously, the location is memorable (the building is a landmark). It was around $30 a person, which included an entree, and a buffet (which was great. It had shellfish, pastries, caviar, and a lot of other great stuff). It isn't super cheap, but is a great value. Service is excellent, and the food is very good quality. I think this is one of the hidden secrets in this town. This would be my recommendation.

            The Wrigley Mansion is a great place to take out of towners, good setting.

              So far II think we're leaning towards Wright's from the description...but what kind of brunch/breakfast offerings does the Wrigley Mansion have? I didn't even know they had any!
