Best Easter Brunches in Phoenix for Under $20 Per Person

While the price of the average Easter brunch looms over $50 per person there are still quite a few restaurants in Phoenix that offer excellent food at a price the average person can afford. If you think it’s impossible to find a good place to take your family for Easter brunch for under $20 per person in Phoenix you might be surprised. The affordable family friendly Easter brunch is not a thing of the past! While there are always the old standbys of large chain buffets and diners, we looked for local restaurants that didn’t churn out the same old cookie-cutter recipes and menus, but still provided the traditional fare.

McCormick & Schmick’s Seafood at Gainey Village in Scottsdale is open on April 24, for Easter brunch. No, you won’t be saddled with fish on the brunch menu. Instead you’ll find chef’s benedicts , omelets, and baked French toast. Plates for adults start at just $10.95, a rare find for a restaurant of this caliber. Kids brunches are only $4.95. If you were really looking forward to the fish, don’t worry, they will begin serving their Wild Seafood specials again after 3 p.m. http://www.mccormickandschmicks.com
