And now for the age-old question: where to brunch?
Where’s the best brunch spot in Los Angeles? Don’t worry–we got you.
Brunch time is the best time. If we could brunch all day, all weekend, all year in beautiful Los Angeles weather with a mimosa in hand, people watching, food watching (and ‘gramming), and straight up relaxing, that would be the life, right?
There’s probably no better place to brunch than LA. Here are our top restaurant picks for the best eats in the beautiful city of Los Angeles.
It’s a classic Los Angeles staple you can’t miss. At Brite Spot, just outside of good ol’ Hollywood, you’ll find delicious home cooked diner meals on their brunch menu with the best salted honey pie you won’t stop thinking about (yes, you can have pie for breakfast). This quaint place serves up some serious breakfast comfort food: delicious eggs, pancakes, bacon, buttermilk biscuits–the works. And it’s just a short walk away from Echo Park, perfect for walking off your food coma.
Home is where the heart is, right? That’s all you’ll find here at Home: lots o’ love! It’s the coolest brunch spot in Silverlake and Los Feliz (thank goodness they have two locations!).
Home is a vintage-inspired meets European cafe meets rustic-modern, all tucked in a diner setting that is beyond cozy. This place has a fully stocked bar with all the brunch cocktail essentials–their bloody mary is essential for brunch, and don’t get us started on their sangrias (which are BIG so make sure to wine and dine on that…like right now). They also have killer breakfast sandwiches, scrambles, and home-style fries. Go Home!
Tucked in the border of Silverlake and Echo Park, we wouldn’t be surprised if you drove past this wonder over and over again without realizing its magic. At Cliff’s Edge, you’ll be treated to luxury. From the outside, this cafe looks like just a regular building and parking lot…but inside…just wow. Picture brunching in an adult tree house patio, lined with beautiful umbrellas, colorful pillows, and French bistro chairs, all surrounded by bamboo plants and palms. And all of it is centered around this gigantic lopsided tree. For brunch, get their french toast or ricotta pancakes that just melt in your mouth. Every dish is superb.
Head to Mohawk Bend for a woodsy, mid-century type of vibe. Known for its copious list of vegan and vegetarian items (but don’t worry, they have a bunch of meat dishes, too), people go to Mohawk Bend for a chill time. With 72 craft beers on tap and artisan cocktails, how could you not (also it’s 5 o’clock somewhere)? Their house-made chilaquiles are insane, and it’s never too early to eat pizza ‘cause that’s what this joint is known for. Have a seat in the back near the fireplace for the best lighting for those brunch selfies, and don’t forget to try their tasty artisan cocktails.
In between high-rise buildings and the sweet sounds of LA traffic is the Hotel Figueroa. The hotel lobby itself is enrapturing: the Moroccan influences merge with Spanish Colonial art and architecture, creating a warm ambiance that is both vintage and contemporary. The tasteful interior leads to the gorgeous Veranda lounge. Enclosed by fine drapes reminiscent of colorful Barcelona, you can eat an elegant brunch as you overlook their beautiful swimming pool.
Bottomless at Barbix is the only way to go. Weekend brunch menus feature $8 bottomless mimosas. You read that right: $8 (they don’t skimp on the bubbly, so pace yourselves, friends).
Silverlake’s Barbix is known for its refined yet chill atmosphere. Reserve a spot in their alluring outdoor patio and you’ll be met by mismatched chairs, strings of lights, and floral centerpieces. From appetizing poutine to tart lemon ricotta pancakes, Barbix’s brunch menu is extensive and sure to have something for everyone. The menu is constantly changing, which is exciting for regulars since this restaurant always delivers.
Make sure to make a reservation–this place gets packed! Parking can be a hit or miss (hello LA), but hey, there’s always valet!
