LA’s best brunches
In LA, dining is as much a social experience as it is a culinary one. The hottest eateries are places to see and be seen, where you can perhaps spot celebrities dining with celebrities, and much more.
But a few choice spots in LA still put food first, especially when it comes to that perfect weekend meal – brunch. Sure, there’s still plenty of people-watching to be done at these three spots, but for the best brunches in town the focus is on substance—with a healthy side order of style.
The Sycamore Kitchen
Back in the 1950s, the building that houses The Sycamore Kitchen was a print shop. While the eatery retains that vintage look and feel, the food created by Karen and Quinn Hatfield reflects the resurgent interest in the American diner—but with a modern twist. Brunch at The Sycamore Kitchen—dubbed best in the city by Time Out LA—features Stumptown coffee, incredible house-made pastries as well as new takes on classics: the breakfast sandwich, eggs Benedict, granola, pancakes and more.
This California take on the European food hall blends retail, dining and more under one roof. It’s ideal for brunch—there’s a European-style rotisserie, a salad station, artisan bakery as well as a full-service restaurant featuring mouth-watering brunch items. Grab something caffeinated from the espresso bar or go a little stronger with a beverage from the wine and craft beer bar.
Beer, wine, cheeses, meats, bread, dairy, spices — for those looking for premium ingredients for making their own killer brunch (or other meal), this is the place to stop. But even the best culinary mind would be hard-pressed to match the caliber of the brunch items available to eat in. Inspired mains—frittatas, French toast, coddled eggs, salads, sandwiches and more—will satisfy every brunch-goer’s cravings.
