I'm looking for suggestions in the Scottsdale area, or maybe east Phoenix, as I'm about to take an elderly aunt type out for brunch. For something nicer, I'd probably gravitate to T. Cook, but for this I'm looking for something more casual and less expensive.
Last time I ended up at Mimi's Cafe, and was underwhelmed. Then someone recommended the pancake house just west of Fashion Square which was awful. I'm sure I can do better!
