Little Cleo's Who doesn't want to start off their Easter with a little seafood? At Phoenix's Little Cleo's, you'll get a breakfast buffet, which includes their "Colossal Shellfish Bar" featuring fresh oysters, smoked salmon, snow crab, and poached shrimp.

The meal costs $60 per person, includes a glass of champagne, and is available from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Easter.

T. Cook's As far as variety goes, T. Cook's is one of the only restaurants in the Valley offering both a buffet and a prix-fixe menu for Easter brunch. For the prix-fixe, $75 gets you a three-course meal, complete with options such as eggs Benedict, an Arizona wheat berry salad, and passion fruit Peeps. The buffet consists of everything from leg of lamb and crab claws to a waffle station and banana coconut trifles. Both meals require reservations and run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Garden Court From 10 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. on Easter, the restaurant inside of the Scottsdale Plaza Resort will be serving up a special buffet. If the standard prime rib and ham carving stations aren't enough for you, there'll also be a paella station and several entrees, including the resort's signature Monte Cristo and baked penne alfredo. Reservations are required, and the buffet costs $58 per person.

Taggia For $60 per person, Taggia's brunch buffet will provide a wide range of both hot and cold options, all with their signature Italian styling. The food includes everything from smoked salmon and caprese salad to pancetta and baked scalloped potatoes. Brunch goes from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m., and includes your choice of a bellini, mimosa, or bloody mary.

Rusconi's The three-course prix-fixe menu at Rusconi's will give you plenty of options for Easter brunch, whether you're looking for breakfast or lunch.
