If snooze buttons were made of sausage links, people would want to wake to gobble them or else fall into much deeper sleeps with dreams about floating down rivers of syrup on sausage link rafts. Dock on a bank of breakfasty goodness with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of morning grub and lunch bites at The Breakfast Joynt in Scottsdale.
Gone are the days of breakfast nooks, cubbyholes, and dens, because fashion-forward breakfasters only eat in joynts. From 6:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., The Breakfast Joynt's menu offers diners freshly made sausage gravy, off-the-bone hams, and off-the-pan cakes. The light and tender textures of apple crêpes ($5.95) join the chorus of Aunty Em's homestyle biscuits and gravy ($6.95) and the simple joys of steel-cut oatmeal with raisins and brown sugar ($3.95). If lunch is more your hour du jour, The Breakfast Joynt offers a pound and a quarter of fried pork-loin sandwich ($8.95), served on a bun likened to the size of a trashcan lid. Order an endless pot of coffee ($2.25) to keep you company as you return emails with complimentary WiFi. Or, boost your vitamin C level with a complimentary glass of fresh-squeezed orange juice when you use your Groupon Monday through Friday.
Breakfast Joynt's extraordinarily pleasant staff, combined with hearty breakfast dishes, brings to life all the rich colors and pleasant birdsongs of morning time, stirring ante meridiem amour in the hearts of devoted night-lovers. You'll positively blush with happiness when you discover that morning peeks its furry head up every single day of the week and always smells like maple syrup.
- This is serious start-your-day stuff, like chocolate-chip crepes, Swedish pancakes with ligonberries, Granny Smith apple-stuffed pancakes with vanilla-bean ice cream, home-style biscuits and gravy with country-fried steak and eggs, or corned-beef hash and eggs. Sure, owners David Phelps and Becky Mazzocco offer some health-conscious eats like six egg whites (yes, six) and whole-wheat toast, but why bother, when you can get a build your own three-egg omelet laden with ham off the bone and asparagus? – Carey Sweet, Metromix
- This quaint meal away from the kitchen is family owned, operated, and boasts a beautiful location in North Scottsdale. Built from the ground up, this restaurant is turning heads (and filling bellies) with its hearty, country flair. – Lindsay Watson, Examiner
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.
