Brunch is by far the best meal of the day. And it’s the only one that gives you a pass on drinking before noon. Here are a few must-try brunch spots around Phoenix this summer.

The Bread and Honey House

Large portions and a cool vibe are staples at The Bread and Honey House. You can build your own burrito, enjoy classic chilaquiles, or order up some French toast on Texas brioche. There’s definitely something for everyone, and their prices are super reasonable. Just because you’re on a budget doesn’t mean you can’t eat out! The best part? It’s steps away from your home at Encore Tessera.


Brunch at Gertrude’s is more than a meal, it’s an experience. When making reservations, be sure to request an outdoor table. Gertrude’s is in the Desert Botanical Garden, so the view is top-notch. Plus, with locally-sourced, farm-to-table food, the entire menu is stellar. All around, Gertrude’s is a must!

Bliss ReBAR

Bliss ReBAR knows how to start a meal right – with an extensive list of cocktails. They often have live music and a shaded patio, so you never have to worry about sporting your sunglasses the entire meal.

The Vig Fillmore

Class up your weekend brunch at The Vig, a hip hangout with an upbeat atmosphere. Here, you’ll find sports on TV, bocce ball, live music, and a fireplace to gather around. Make sure to check out their drink specials and expansive menu, including classic staples like avocado toast and veggie quiche, as well as upscale options like lemon ricotta pancakes.
