4 Must-Try Dishes at Scottsdale’s New Brunch Café

When it comes to brunching in Scottsdale, our motto is “the more, the merrier.” When Brunch Café made its debut in Scottsdale earlier this summer (it has been a Chicago favorite since 2008), it brought with it a lengthy menu of a.m. eats–some tried-and-true traditional hits and some fun, creative dishes that you’re dying to taste after reading the description. Churro Belgian waffle, anyone? During a recent visit, we sampled several signature Brunch Café dishes; here are our faves for early risers (though there are plenty lunchtime eats, as well).

Apple Bread French Toast: Though French toast isn’t our usual breakfast order, this decadent offering had us dreaming of autumn. The thick slices are rich and moist, with delightful crunches of pecan and a not-overly-sweet vanilla bean glaze. We particularly liked the crispy, almost strudel-like texture that formed on the exterior of the French toast, making the dish a real morning treat. 
Signature Brunch French Toast: Once again, the French toast lineup produced a winner with this signature dish. Don’t expect a traditional French toast, though. This sweet, fruity offering was a baked custard French bread, resulting in thick slabs of airy “French toast” with paper-thin layers. It was creamy, almost pudding-esque, covered with kiwi, strawberries and a strawberry-vanilla glaze. We’re tempted to throw a candle on it for our next birthday dessert. 
Smoked Salmon Benedict: Fun fact: Brunch Café house-smokes its own salmon, and the quality and care is evident with each bite. Side this traditional breakfast dish with hash browns to soak up Brunch Café’s creamy, flavorful hollandaise sauce.
Avocado Toast: Since it is impossible to go anywhere without seeing avo toast on the menu, we had to give the Brunch Café’s selection a try. The rustic whole grain bread is thick and surprisingly very soft, topped with plenty of avocado and a vibrant crown of heirloom tomatoes, bright arugula and a sweet balsamic glaze. You can add an egg, goat cheese or bacon, if you want to really make it a meal.
To drink, the restaurant whips up a variety of breakfast cocktails, smoothies, cold-pressed juices and specialty coffee drinks. Brunch Café is open daily from 6:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Brunch Café in Scottsdale will host its grand opening celebration on Wednesday, August 14. All attendees will receive $5 off their total bill during regular business hours from 6:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Between 6:30 and 9:30 a.m., the “early bird” attendees will also enjoy complimentary coffee and a chocolate-covered strawberry with the purchase of any meal. Plus, get your hands on some coupons for future visits.
