Mimosas or Bloody Marys? Steak and eggs, or oatmeal? Los Angeles brunch options are endless, with establishments all over town serving up a relaxed first meal.
Those seeking a continuous supply of orange juice and bubbly flock to Taste in West Hollywood, which offers bottomless mimosas for about $13. For endless Champagne (the OJ must be purchased separately) brunchers head to Overland Café in Palms, where all the sparkling nectar one can drink costs about $7.
For an extra boozy breakfast/lunch combo, Fig in Santa Monica has its own take on the Bloody Mary with its bacon-inspired Bloody Maria. Those who would like beer in lieu of liquor can opt for the “Keg and Eggs,” any brunch item on the menu with an endless pint of draft beer for about $35.
But brunch isn’t just about late-morning alcoholic pick-me-ups. For an inexpensive steak and eggs feast, The Original Pantry Café in Downtown L.A. has served up the all-American classic since first opening in 1924. For a French bistro feel, Café Stella in Silver Lake serves items like oeuf à la coque (soft-boiled eggs and sliced bread) and croque madame (ham and Gruyère sandwich with a fried egg on top).
Another great spot for brunch in Los Angeles is the Beverly Grove area, with celebrity haunts like Kings Road Café, Joan's on Third, and Toast Bakery Cafe.
Luckily, there are also plenty of brunch spots for Angelenos who prefer an organic, healthy start to the day. With locations in West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, and Downtown L.A., Urth Caffé has organic coffees and teas, farm-fresh produce, and oatmeal options galore.
Los Angeles brunch is an experience that locals love to indulge in. Finding the right L.A. brunch spot is a great way to start the day off right.
