A crazy Saturday night can sometimes turn too quickly into an extra sunny Sunday morning. Whether you’re waking up with your stilettos still securely attached to your feet or you’re rising and shining, brunch is always a must and a staple in the Valley among many restaurants. Before you browse the menu full of hangover-curing breakfast dishes, make sure you order a large glass of boozy bliss at these Valley restaurants that are pouring up good deals and great tastes.
This recent Scottsdale addition understands the morning struggle and provides the perfect solution. The restaurant’s “Remedy” cocktail menu pairs quite nicely with its Mexican-American menu of eats. Sip on the Scottsdale Sunrise, an $8 creation of muddled grapefruit, Deep Eddy Grapefruit vodka press, grapefruit Pellegrino and champagne, or chug down the $10 Coco Fresa, made with Three Olives Coconut vodka press, fresh strawberry, lemon and a splash of agave nectar.
Brunch Served: Saturday and Sunday, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
If you can steer your eyes away from the breakfast popsicles and dessert pancakes, you’ll find its famous “DIY” Bloody Mary bar that’s just as extravagant as it is delicious. Choose from flavor-infused vodkas like cilantro, lime, bacon and jalapeño and top it off with more than 50 munch-worthy items. Toppings include grilled cheese sandwiches, pepperoni sticks, mozzarella sticks, king crab and oysters. Hone your skill of stacking and load it up, because it’s only $10 for as many toppings as you can pile on.
Open: Daily, 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Head to trendy downtown for a chic brunching experience at DCM Bar. Keep it classy with $4 glasses of mimosas or get serious and order up $18 pitchers.

If simple and easy is all you can handle in the morning, head to Downtown Tempe where The Lodge Sasquatch Kitchen is pouring up deals. With every brunch order placed, guests can add on—and why wouldn’t you?—a bottomless mimosa for $10. Keep on chugging, refills are only 5¢.
