Whether you're the early riser type, or you like to roll out of the bed at the crack of noon, Scottsdale is full of great brunch destinations that are ready to feed you and get your day started off right.
For a classic yet wholesome take on breakfast and brunch, stop in at Butters Pancakes and Cafe. The name of this Scottsdale breakfast staple might sound decadent, but there's much more to the menu than butter and maple syrup. You'll find whole wheat pancakes, fresh fruit salads and grains.
Looking for a cozy patio far from the maddening crowds of Old Town? Alo Cafe strikes the right balance between convenience (it's tucked away on a quiet edge of downtown Scottsdale), charm (when the weather is mild outside, the patio makes for a lovely brunching spot), and great Euro-inspired breakfast fare.
If a fine Bloody Mary is what you're after, make a brunch date at The Hash Kitchen. This sleek spot offers high-energy, family-friendly ambiance, plus a long menu of delicious daytime eats. Mimosas and a great build your own Bloody Mary bar never go out of style here (or anywhere, for that matter).
Another good spot for spot for build-your-own Bloody Mary aficionados is ZuZu, the hip restaurant located at the Hotel Valley Ho in Old Town Scottsdale. Brunch service also includes an optional make-your-own Mimosa bar.
