10 Best Restaurants for Breakfast and Brunch Restaurants in Scottsdale

We all know - or at least we've been told repeatedly - that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. That may be so, and if you head to the right spot, breakfast can also arguably be the most delicious meal of the day.

Take Butters Pancakes & Cafe, for example, a Scottsdale mainstay that specializes in wholesome breakfasts. Come here when you're craving a glass of fresh-squeezed orange juice and fluffy, indulgent platters of pancakes. 

Perk Eatery on Greenway Parkway, offers a fun menu of southwestern-inflected breakfast specialties, like the Sonoran Kitchen Sink, a savory medley of slow-roasted pork and potatoes spiked with jalapenos and onions. You'll also find a tasty and sophisticated French country French toast stuffed with brie and served with roasted red grapes and an herb-kissed rosemary wine syrup.
