Any update on cheap, quiet brunch places?

Just checking for any new suggestions of brunch places, preferably Scottsdale or maybe central Phoenix, with the main points being something cheap and something fairly quiet. I've really enjoyed Matt's Big Breakfast and Over Easy, for instance.

    1. re: uhockey

      That actually looks great. Have you been there? Do you know what the noise level is like? This involved one person with hearing problems and one person with speaking problems, which is why I'm looking for some place quiet.

        I haven't gotten my review up yet, but it is soon. Place has light alt-rock music playing overhead, but certainly is not loud.

      2. Bettys Nosh, 67th and the 101. Very quiet, and a nice brunch. Cheap too.... Omellete bar, belgian waffles, incredible au gratin potatoes, home made english muffin, $3 bloody marys'.

        1. Matt's is anything but "quiet".

          I'd try Two Hippies.

          1. Yeah, Ipsedixit, I know Matt's isn't quiet, but I've been there when it's not crowded. Really just an example of the type of food and prices I'm looking for. There seem to be multiple Two Hippies - are you thinking of a particular one?

            KnoopAZ, oddly this computer is blocking Betty's Nosh website, but I gather it's kind of far away for this.

            1. Windsor does a pretty solid brunch on the weekends. Drinks are cheap and the food is very reasonably priced. It can get quite crowded, but isn't necessarily loud. I've sat at both the bar as well as tables and have been able to hold conversations without any problem.
              I haven't been there yet, but I've heard good things about Palette at the Phx Art Museum. The brunch menu looks decent. I can't tell for sure if it is associated with the Palette that Ed used to run at 4th Ave and Fillmore a few years ago. It doesn't look like it, but I could be wrong.
