Gabby Shacknai

The ever-going search for the perfect brunch in Phoenix, Arizona may have finally been solved. Check out these 10 picks for the best brunch, based on food quality, service, location, and setting.

Elements at Sanctuary

Located inside The Sanctuary hotel, Elements rests atop Camelback Mountain and features some of the best views in the city through its floor-to-ceiling windows. The restaurant boasts both a wide-ranging menu to please every palate and superior service, offering everything from Cinnamon Sticky Bun French Toast to a Smoke Fried Chicken & Stick Rice Bowl, and guests are treated like royalty from the minute they walk in.

With several locations across the valley, Postino’s has long been a popular spot, but the relatively recent addition of brunch has drawn in even more crowds. There’s a fairly basic but scrumptious menu that features brunch classics with an Italian twist. For those with a sweet tooth, the restaurant serves a delicious Ciabatta French Toast.

1. La Grande Orange (LGO)

Pizzeria, Restaurant, Dessert, American

LGO, which serves breakfast until 5pm, is the perfect place for a quick bite. The “grocery” end of the neighborhood restaurant features delicious breakfast items such as Organic Oatmeal served with berries, the famous English Muffins, sandwiches like the Turkey Reuben and a modernized Croque Madame. And if you;re looking for something more lunch-y, there’s also a wide variety of salads, and even sushi.

2. Il Terrazzo at The Phoenician

Market, Italian

Il Terrazzo serves one of the higher end brunches in the valley. Located inside the beautiful Phoenician hotel, this Italian Market Brunch boasts the perfect combination of artisan dishes embodying the best of Arizona. There’s also a full brunch buffet.

3. Morning Glory Café

Morning Glory Café

Morning Glory Café has quickly become an Arizona favorite, particularly for breakfast and brunch. In the pretty patio setting diners can enjoy house-baked muffins and pastries, seasonal omelettes, and homemade granola, all while relaxing by the organic gardens where most of the restaurant’s ingredients are grown.

4. St. Francis

Restaurant, American, Contemporary, Vegetarian

Although St. Francis has easily some of the best food in the city, the true appeal of this spot is the ambiance. With its high wooden ceilings, brick walls, and modern artwork, this setting is only bettered by one thing: live music.

5. Vincent’s Market Bistro

Bistro, Market, Restaurant, French, European, Vegetarian

The Market Bistro, located directly adjacent to Phoenix favorite Vincent’s, was opened in 2003 as an extension of the long-successful Camelback Farmers Market that takes place at the restaurant every Saturday from fall to spring. In this cute, quintessentially French bistro, guests can enjoy items such as homemade Cinnamon Raisin Brioche and House Made Basil Pasta with Pesto and Parmesan Cheese.

6. Windsor

Bar, Cocktail Bar, American, Beer, Contemporary

Recent newcomer Windsor, which is situated in North Central Phoenix, has certainly mastered the art of brunch and has become arguably the best boozy breakfast in the valley. With Quinoa Oatmeal, Homemade Donut Holes, and a $5 Bloody Mary Bar that allows guests to “trick out their cocktails,” there is seriously no way to go wrong at this hotspot.

7. The Herb Box

The Herb Box

The Herb Box, which has various locations across Phoenix, prides itself on creating and serving “Innovative World Cuisine,” which is exactly what its brunch delivers. With a mixture of healthy items such as All Natural Oatmeal and a Baby Kale, Brie, and Green Apple Omelette and some not-so-healthy options like Red Velvet Pancakes and Bourbon-Ginger Peach Brioche French Toast, even the pickiest of eater will find something yummy here.

7134 E Stetson Dr, Suite 200, Scottsdale, AZ +1 (480) 289 6160

8. El Chorro

El Chorro

Perhaps the best option for a special occasion brunch, El Chorro is known for not only its delicious food but also its amazing scenic views, great service, and cozy outdoor patio. Try the Crème Brulée French Toast for something sweet and the Steak N’ Eggs for something savory all while taking in the breath-taking views of Camelback Mountain.
