Going out on a Friday to party is great, but do you know what we’ve recently discovered? Treating yourself to a weekend brunch with your best friends or loved ones is an even better way to end a busy week of husting and bustle. Time slows down, you get to eat what you want, and spend some time with your favorite people in the world. It’s a balm for the soul.
So, if you’re looking for a place in Phoenix or Scottsdale where you can enjoy a weekend brunch in style, here are our top picks.
- The Henry
4455 E Camelback Rd, Phoenix, AZ
The Henry has long established itself as a great spot for early morning meetings. On weekends, however, it takes on a more casual and fun approach to dining. They roll out their famous Bloody Mary cart and serve an array of brunch favorites (eggs served in different ways, sides, freshly baked goods, and satisfying entrees) until 3 in the afternoon.
- Hash Kitchen
8777 N Scottsdale Rd, Scottsdale, AZ
First things first, the folks at Scottsdale want you to have a good time. So much so that they’ll slash $5 off your bill the next time you get brunch with them. Second, if the Gainey Village location is quite full, head to the Hash Kitchen at Scottsdale Horizon (or the one in Arcadia Gateway in Phoenix if you’re closer there).
- Matt’s Big Breakfast
825 N 1st St, Phoenix, AZ
Honest-to-goodness brunch classics made from scratch— that’s what made Matt’s Big Breakfast a go-to brunch spot in Phoenix. The demand is so high, they’ve expanded to four locations (including Tempe and Scottsdale). Whether you’re looking for something healthier (try The Skinny) or want something heavier (perhaps the Iowa pork rib chop?), you’ll find something at Matt’s.
6560 N Scottsdale Rd, Scottsdale, AZ
SumoMaya offers a different kind of weekend brunch. Here, you’ll get to sample Mexican-Asian food all you want from 9 in the morning ‘till 2 in the afternoon. Prepare to feast. There will be loads of plates and sides (great for sharing!) and bottomless cocktails, all of which you can enjoy in this stylish and colorful setting.
- The Mission
Kierland Commons, 7122 E Greenway Pkwy#140, Scottsdale, AZ
If SumoMaya left you wanting for more of Latin American flavors, a weekend brunch at The Mission will satisfy your cravings. Enter this dimly-lit restaurant oozing with ambiance on a Saturday or Sunday, from 11 am till 3 pm, and try their chorizo scramble, corn, crab, and shrimp pancakes, and their Mission Mary (or Mission Mimosa), to name a few of the crowd favorites.
