Among ways to start the morning, eating a balanced breakfast is second only to jogging with the sheep you counted the night before. Get your stomach off on the right foot with today's Groupon: for $22, you get a family style breakfast for four to six people at The Breakfast Joynt in Scottsdale (a $47 value). The breakfast includes:
- Eight scrambled eggs
- Six pieces of bacon
- Four pieces of sausage
- Four pancakes
- A pound of hash browns
- Biscuits and gravy
- A carafe of fresh orange juice
The Breakfast Joynt’s family style breakfast awakens appetites with creative twists on classic breakfast fare. Families, groups of friends, or aspiring boy bands just off the mall-concert graveyard shift slather fresh biscuits with homemade sausage gravy before piling plates with succulent off-the-bone ham, sizzling bacon, or hearty breakfast sausage. Pancakes challenge hash browns to a tabletop runway walk to see who looks best in the latest syrup styles, and scrambled eggs snap frenzied paparazzi shots.
Nimble waiters transport the heaping dishes on a parade of large, family style plates that land atop tables alongside carafes of orange juice and coffee. The restaurant's sunny yellow walls complement its egg-based entrees, and abundant sunlight and stray tree-gossip flows through a multitude of windows onto comfortable burgundy-colored booths.
The Breakfast Joynt
The Breakfast Joynt's chefs build their customizable three-egg omelets with 20 ingredients such as chorizo, blended mozzarella, and asparagus. Starting at 6:30 a.m. seven days a week, the culinary team whips up early morning staples such as four-cheese or spinach quiche and Swedish-style pancakes served with lingonberries. In the afternoon, cooks top burgers with mushrooms and Swiss cheese and pile BLT fixings onto toast rather than pushing them directly into your mouth. The restaurant's spacious, sunny dining room, which is equipped with complimentary Wi-Fi, frequently doubles as The Cooking Joynt, where longtime chefs Dave and Andy teach students the tricks of their trade.
