Gaga Over Blue Corn Pancakes at Four Seasons Scottsdale
Week #9, of our Top Ten Sunday Brunches of Scottsdale & Phoenix series, found us at Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North.
We first visited the AAA Five-Diamond Four Seasons Scottsdale as a part of our Arizona AAA Five-Diamond Resort Tour, and have happily found ourselves back to enjoy the luxurious features of this beautiful property many times (look here).
Formerly the home of the ancient Hohokam Indians, the Four Seasons Scottsdale is set upon the site of the former Crescent Moon Ranch, a finishing school for wealthy debutantes operated by a member of the Kellogg family.
We have dined a fair number of times with Executive Chef Mel Mecinas, and we were greatly looking forward to a more casual experience at his Sunday brunch.
Week #9 – Sunday Brunch at Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North
To make the experience even more enjoyable, the property is set near the foot of Pinnacle Peak and offers stunning views of the mountain and features massive granite boulders strewn across the landscape.[AFG_gallery id=’14’]

We began our Sunday brunch at the buffet table where we found Cornflake Crusted French Toast, Quiche, Farmers’ Market Fritatta, Southwest Scrambled Eggs, and House-made Juices, along with a plethora of other fine delectables.
As we happily worked our way through the first wave of our Sunday brunch, out came a stream of kitchen staff bringing Banana Oatmeal (steel-cut irish oats, caramelized banana, milk, arizona dried berries, brown sugar), Huevos Rancheros (two eggs any style, chorizo quesadilla, avocado, black beans, ranchero sauce), Eggs Benedict (canadian bacon, english muffin, hollandaise sauce, tomato, breakfast potatoes), and Blue Corn Pancakes (crockett’s desert honey-agave syrup, minted berries).
There were three of us happily passing plates around as a chorus of oohs, ahhs, hmmms, and oh wows floated in the air.
As you can see from my photographs above, everything was absolutely delicious. However, after sampling, I returned to the massive stack of blue corn pancakes, dripping in honey and agave syrup, and made my last stand.
I had absolutely no chance of making my way all the way through these lip-smacking blue babies, but I was determined to make my last glorious impression right there.
The Blue Corn Pancakes were uniquely out of this world!
We highly recommend a beautiful Sunday drive up to North Scottsdale to enjoy Sunday Brunch at Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North. You are certain to enjoy the finest local, and seasonally sourced products prepared by the masterful hands of Chef Mecinas and his team.
You should also note that Sunday brunch ends at 11:30 at this resort, so get there early!
With three of us present, we were all thumbs up, so we give this Sunday Brunch six thumbs up!
Note: don’t forget to check back next week when we’ll whisk you off to another exciting and mouthwatering Sunday Brunch experience.
