5 Best Brunches

The city's booming culinary scene is hallmarked by inspiring new restaurant openings, impressive chefs, dishes to die for, experiences to savor and a spectrum of food and drink trends that take dining out into a whole new and exciting realm.
EGGCEPTIONAL Breakfast Kitchen Bar serves up luxe menu items, like this breakfast charcuterie board ($13).

Breakfast Kitchen Bar
There’s a reason why they claim to have the “best brunch ever (seriously!).” With dishes like lobster omelets and croissant French toast, you can see why this new hot spot from the guys who brought us Pita Jungle is a hit. Open for breakfast, lunch, happy hour and tapas daily; dishes are $10 or less; Scottsdale Quarter, 15037 N. Scottsdale Road, Scottsdale

The Hash Kitchen Creative Breakfast & Bar
You’ll never find yourself waffling over what looks good—no pun intended. Sip on a mimosa flight ($15) and pore over just about every dreamy iteration of brekky you can think of: hashes, pancakes, French toasts, Bennies, frittatas, scramblers, waffles and even breakfast lasagna. There are more than 50 items to choose from, but we’re partial to the leg of lamb hash ($16). 14838 N. Frank Lloyd Wright Blvd., 480.361.5228; 8777 N. Scottsdale Road, Scottsdale, 480.947.3214

The Henry
On weekends, brunch lovers flock to this Arcadia eatery to enjoy decadent items—think caramel apple French toast and carrot cake pancakes (both $11)—or to savor sensible fare, like an egg scramble of Brussels sprouts, squash, roasted mushrooms, kale and Parmesan ($12). Crown moulding, towering curtains, patterned wallpaper and old library books give it a stately yet homey feel. 4455 E. Camelback Road, Ste. B100, Phoenix, 602.429.8020

Valley foodies rave about this downtown resto for its handsome, expansive outdoor space, complete with bistro lights, picnic tables, tree-lined pathways and lots of seating nooks. Locally sourced, seasonal fare abounds. Go all-in with a seared skirt steak, fried eggs, hash brown cake and salsa verde ($22), or nibble the surprisingly satisfying salads and veggie dishes (from $9). 3243 N. Third St., Phoenix, 602.687.9080

This posh spot atop Scottsdale Quarter just rolled out Brunch Boxes, where guests can pair one of a melange of entrees with a drink of choice for under $20. But if money is no object, you’ll want to indulge in one of the upgrades: a scoop of caviar ($15) or a shower of truffles ($25). 15257 N. Scottsdale Road, Ste. 220, Scottsdale, 480.483.3255
