Sunday Brunch at Camelback Inn – Scottsdale, AZ
Week #10, of our Top Ten Sunday Brunches of Scottsdale & Phoenix series, found us at the Camelback Inn Resort and Spa.
We made our first visit to this AAA Five-Diamond winner back in June of 2010 and quickly fell in love.
Sunday Brunch at the Camelback Inn Resort and Spa brought a gargantuan selection and was hands down the largest buffet we visited on our tour.
We started out with endless flowing champagne and mimosas. There was a breakfast station with every imaginable morning favorite, danishes, fresh fruit, and made-to-order omelets.
Week #10– Camelback Inn Resort & Spa
We found a seafood station with crab claws, shrimp cocktail, seared ahi tuna, and smoked salmon. Nearby was an antipasti station with salads, roasted and grilled vegetables, artisan cheeses, cured meats, and fresh baked goods.

On the outside patio we found a “south of the border” station hosted by a delightful Mexican woman making hot-off-the-grill tacos and quesadillas. YUM!
Further exploration found a pasta station, and an entrée station where we delighted in carved prime rib, grilled filet mignon, lamb skewers, seared scallops, crab cakes, shrimp scampi, roasted chicken, and seasonal fish. WOW! We all made return visits to this station.
And last, but certainly not least, we found the dessert station. Here we found a chocolate fountain, flaming bananas foster, éclairs, cream puffs, cakes, pies, tarts, and cookies. The warm apple pie á-la-mode was a big hit at the table. YUM!
A great challenge of many buffet-type meals is that the food quite often gets cold and loses its freshness. We saw none of that here. The staff was very attentive to keep everything hot, fresh, and looking beautiful.
There were four of us dining at the Camelback Inn Resort and Spa. When I surveyed the table, I saw eight thumbs up!
As of this writing, the Sunday Champagne Brunch was $59 for adults, and $20 for children ages 4-12.
