The Top 10 Easter Sunday Brunches in Scottsdale/Phoenix
You see, we make this bodacious claim as we have fairly recently completed a dining tour of the Valley’s very best Sunday Brunch spots.
For ten weeks, every Sunday found us in a different Phoenix/Scottsdale fine dining establishment sampling, enjoying, noshing, sipping, and delighting in the best Sunday Brunches that the Valley has to offer.
As it is quite traditional for many families to enjoy an Easter Sunday Brunch, we offer you our findings.
Below you will find hundreds of mouth-watering photographs, and the story of each and every one of our visits. The articles are presented in the order of our visits. Therefore, their order is not intended to rate one over the other.
The Top 10 Easter Sunday Brunches of Scottsdale/Phoenix
Sunday Brunch at Il Terrazzo, The Phoenician, Scottsdale
Our first stop was Sunday Brunch at Il Terrazzo inside the AAA Five-Diamond Phoenician resort. We called the cuisine “gobsmacking”. In fact, when our friends got to noshing on the treats in our table’s decadent tower of desserts, their heads slowly tilted back, their eyes rolled back, and a slight guttural mmmm proceeded deep from within their diaphragms. Here’s a link to our feature article: A Gobsmacking Sunday Brunch in Scottsdale
Sunday Brunch at Brittlebush Bar & Grill, Westin Kierland Resort & Spa, Scottsdale
Our second stop was Sunday Brunch at the Scottish Gastropub, the Brittlebush Bar and Grill, inside the Westin Kierland Resort and Spa. We enjoyed brilliant Scottish cuisine with an unusual southwestern twist. We noshed on traditional haggis, black pudding, as well as cornbread french toast, and lobster mac & cheese. Plus, when you’re done, you can play croquet in the lawn. How cool is that? Here our article: Exceptional Scottish Breakfast Cuisine With a Southwestern Twist.
Sunday Champagne Brunch at the Wrigley Mansion, Phoenix
For the third installment of our Top 10 Sunday Brunches in Scottsdale and Phoenix, we chose to take a step back in time with a visit to the historic Wrigley Mansion in Phoenix. For this experience, we brought along four friends, enjoyed spectacular views of the Valley, and enjoyed an exquisitely prepared Sunday brunch. Here’s a link to our article: Praiseworthy Sunday Brunch Steps Back in Time.
Sunday Brunch at Cafe ZuZu inside Scottsdale, Arizona’s Hotel Valley Ho
The fourth stop of our Top 10 Sunday Brunches in Scottsdale and Phoenix found us at Cafe ZuZu in the AAA Four-Diamond Hotel Valley Ho. The hotel was hip when it was built in 1956 before downtown Scottsdale even had a downtown. Now, after a complete remodel in 2005, the hotel is a magnet for the hip, cool, and chic … all within a faithful 60s-vintage style. Here’s a link to our article: Spectacularly Groovy Sunday Brunch at Cafe ZuZu.
Sunday Brunch at T. Cook’s inside the Royal Palms Resort & Spa, Phoenix
#5, on our Top 10 Sunday Brunches in Scottsdale and Phoenix found us at T. Cook’s inside the Royal Palms Resort and Spa. The resort is a AAA Four-Diamond winner, belongs to the distinguished Historic Hotels of America, and was a favorite stopping place when President H.W. Bush was in town. Here’s a link to our article: T. Cook’s: Sunday Brunch at a US President’s Favorite Local Resort.
Sunday Brunch at Elements, Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort & Spa
Week #6 of our series found us enjoying Sunday Brunch with celebrity chef, Beau MacMillan. He the winner of Iron Chef America and currently has his own show on the Food Network. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and recommend it highly. Here’s a link to our article: Sunday Brunch with Iron Chef America Winner Beau MacMillan.
Sunday Brunch, Wright’s at the Arizona Biltmore
Week #7 features Sunday Brunch at Wright’s at the Arizona Biltmore. The setting is a magnificent, eye-popping world-class hotel designed after famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Hollywood-types, world presidents, and luxury travelers around the world have made the Arizona Biltmore a must-stay destination. We enjoyed an outstanding Sunday Brunch. Here’s a link to our article: Astounding Sunday Brunch in Phoenix’s Arizona Biltmore.
Sunday Brunch at Lon’s at the Hermosa
Week #8 found us enjoying Sunday Brunch with six friends at Lon’s at the Hermosa. The restaurant bears the name of famed cowboy artist Alonzo “Lon” Megargee, and in fact resides in the “Casa Hermosa” (beautiful house) which he built back in the 1930s. Our experience was most delightful, and I’m quite certain that we found the world’s best cinnamon roll. Here’s are article: World’s Best Cinnamon Roll Found at Lon’s at the Hermosa Brunch.
Sunday Brunch at Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North
The second-to-the-last stop of our Sunday Brunch series found us at Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale to enjoy the masterful cuisine of Chef Mel Mecinas. Set near the foot of Pinnacle Peak in North Scottsdale, this Sunday Brunch includes a stunningly beautiful Sunday drive along with your brunch.

Sunday Brunch at Camelback Inn Resort and Spa
The last stop of our Sunday Brunch series topped of at the Camelback Inn Resort and Spa. Set inside the Valley’s longest-running AAA Five-Diamond resort, we found a gargantuan spread of delights. Present was every conceivable breakfast entrée, beautifully prepared cold items, and grilled meats guaranteed to make your mouth water.
