5 Tucson Eateries that Brag a Buncha Brunch

June 23, 2016

Not exactly breakfast and not quite lunch, brunch is the best of both worlds for eats during the off times for dining. A snack is justified as a tide-me-over until it’s time for one of the main 3 while brunch represents a meandering, laissez-faire attitude toward established mealtimes. Brunch more than any other meal is taken as part of a social setting and removes the pressure of getting breakfast on time before you can have lunch.
Tucson’s dining scene is definitely not short on places to enjoy your “whenever” appetite.  If you haven’t found your way to the nooks and crannies that host a terrific brunch, the following list of Tucson’s favorite brunch hubs may interest you:

47 Scott

Named for its downtown location at 47 North Scott Avenue, this sophisticated bistro is equipped with an unusual bar menu and a large outdoor patio area where you can enjoy your mimosas al fresco during cooler times in the year. Gourmet delights are carefully prepared to your liking, with a seasonally rotating menu. Sunday brunch is a must-do, served from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Best to stake your claim on a seat with a reservation because this classy joint fills up fast!

Cup Café

You just never know who you might see at the Cup Café, located within the Hotel Congress. Its eclectic, downtown style backed by history and your choice of seating arrangement is enough to set the scene for a relaxing, satisfying brunch. Tailor your plate however you like since the menu and talented chefs are open to customizing your favorite dishes. Very hip and established downtown, it’s like a trip back to the Roaring ’20s, which is when brunch began to take hold in the U.S.

Ghini’s French Café

Nous aimons le brunch! Located at 1803 E. Prince Road, this locally owned and operated café serves breakfast all day, which you can enjoy as brunch, and a gluten-free menu on Sundays. La Baguette bakery is right next door, and you can bring your canine friend to hang out with you. Locals who know better recommend the café’s signature dish, Eggs Provençal, as long as you aren’t too worried about your youthful figure!

Prep and Pastry

As its name denotes, this popular nook is prized for its pastries and hybrid varieties thereof. Space was once Amelia Grey’s tea room, now open for your dining pleasure. Bring your furry friends since they will be welcomed, too! The restaurant’s cozy ambiance will entice you to kick back and graze for a while. Make your way down to 3073 N. Campbell Ave. and try one of their varieties of homemade hash!

The Grill at Hacienda Del Sol Guest Ranch Resort

With gold-medal quality dining, who could pass up Sunday brunch featured at this Tucson-exclusive world-class resort? If it’s locally prepared food you seek, the restaurant supplies food items and herbs from a garden growing out back of the kitchen. Get your Sunday brunch-on with prime rib, vegetables from the on-site garden, waffles, and eggs of all preparation methods, lox, pasta, and blintzes at The Hacienda Del Sol’s Grill, available from 9:30 to 2. Call 520-529-3500 for reservations.
