Brunch can be a great way to start the day, and it can also be a great way to start the day just a little late. Brunch fusion foods are growing increasingly popular, allowing businesses focused on serving them to transcend some of the classic humdrum of traditional American black coffee and bacon diners. Sedona doesn’t lack for high quality stops to grab some Sedona brunch, so whether you’re just passing through or Sedona is your home base, don’t miss out on these spots.
Berry Divine Acai Bowls
Unsurprisingly, Berry Divine focuses on foods and drinks that incorporate use of the acai berry. With a casual atmosphere and a focus on healthy eating, Berry Divine offers a wonderful variety of flavors in their acai bowls, creating a focused yet distinct menu that anyone looking for a light refreshing meal is sure to enjoy. Expect a healthy serving of fruits, grains, and occasionally a topping of coconut oil, lemon zest, or honey with your meal.
Enjoy their selection of acai smoothies with your meal, some of which are full to the brim with sweet fruits, and others with a combination of greens and spices. They also have featured smoothies that come in and out of rotation, such as the PB&J acai smoothie.
Berry Divine Acai Bowls is open from 8am to 6pm every day of the week. If you want a fresh, healthy start to your day, this is a wonderful place to stop.
The Golden Goose American Grill
Open since 2010, The Golden Goose American Grill is a mainstay for locals and visitors alike. With a focus on American-Italian fusion, their menu is littered with interesting spins on traditional breakfast choices. Their lunch menu includes options like Greek and Italian salads, soup and sandwich combos, quesadillas, sandwiches, and pastas.
With a fully equipped bar, The Golden Goose has a full complement of wines and cocktails available for service during both lunch and dinner, and they have options for eating both inside or out on the patio with umbrella shaded tables.
The Golden Goose American Grill holds many awards in the town of Sedona, including Best Business Lunch and Best Patio Dining. They were also named one of the 10 best restaurants in town, so stop in for lunch between 11am and 4pm any day of the week and find out why.
Located right next door to both Sedona Air Tours and Sedona Car Rentals, Mesa Grill is slightly off the beaten path, but still very much a short drive from anywhere in town. Their focus is primarily on Southwestern American cuisine, and they’re open for breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner.
Their Sedona brunch menu offers many of the hearty mainstays for Southwestern food, like biscuits and gravy, loaded grits, pancakes, and omelettes. There’s an extra focus on seafood offerings here, though, including smoked salmon, crab cakes, shrimp, and fried fish. Options for gluten free, paleo, and keto diets are also available on request.
Mesa Grill is open from 7:30am – 9:00pm seven days a week and is a perfect spot to stop by if you’re looking for a meal before or after a hike or Jeep tour.
Pump House Station
Voted best lunch in Sedona in 2020, Pump House Station serves breakfast and lunch every day of the week, and they also open for dinner hours on Friday and Saturday with live music accompaniment.
Their menu has plenty of breakfast mainstays, but each item is prepared with carefully selected ingredients and is far from lazily prepared. For as much effort that goes into preparing their food, presentation is also an important factor here, and Pump House Station is sure to impress with how carefully built their dishes and drinks are. Benedicts, parfaits, omelettes, croissants, quiche, and more are all available during breakfast hours, and, when possible, they also locally source their produce from surrounding farms.
Pump House Station is also equipped with a full bar, ideal for getting a Bloody Mary or mimosa with your brunch in Sedona. Coffee is also a point of pride for them, so if you’re looking to have an espresso, latte, or something more, then stop in. Pump House Station is open 8am – 2pm every day of the week and is dog friendly.
Creekside American Bistro
With a beautiful view overlooking Oak Creek, Creekside American Bistro touts one of the most beautiful Red Rock views to enhance your dining experience. Naturally, with views like that available, they offer both indoor and outdoor seating for your preference.
They have a separate breakfast, brunch, and lunch menu, offering a massive variety of choices. Breakfast items are served only from 7:30am to 11:00am, so if you plan on getting anything off of the breakfast menu be sure to get there early. The brunch menu is a fusion of multiple cultures, offering bento boxes, New Orleans shrimp, spaghetti bolognese, seafood of all kinds, classic American breakfast, alcoholic smoothies, and more. Do note that their menu rotates seasonally, so certain items may not be available year-round.
Creekside has a full-service bar with a full wine list on their website. They also recommend making a reservation if you plan on coming in, as seating is usually in fairly high demand. If able, they’ll accommodate someone without a reservation, but if you’re on limited time then don’t leave it to chance. Creekside American Bistro is open from 7:30am – 9:00pm seven days a week.
