BEST BRUNCH SPOTS IN la
It's pretty much always sunny in LA and there’s simply nothing better than a lazy weekend afternoon with friends, clinking mimosas, indulging in brioche french toast, bacon and eggs, and making the most of those precious days off work. In order to compile our LA Brunch Guide we knew we needed a savvy insider- luxury lifestyle blogger Caitlyn Chase was just the girl. Author of the blog Caviar & Cashmere, and frequently rounded up as one of LA's best bloggers, Caitlyn has written for Vogue and collaborated with brands like The Four Seasons. "Brunch happens to be one of my favorite pastimes," she confesses, "so I’ve spent a lot of hours (and calories) doing the hard research for you". Exclusively for The Chosen Club, here are Caitlyn's ten favorite brunch spots in the city.
If you like your brunch with a view, it’s hard to top Malibu Farm. Sitting on the end of the iconic Malibu Pier, perched above the Pacific Ocean, this casual spot is a beach-lover’s dream. Think simple, fresh, organic foods straight from the Farmer’s Market — with a few Swedish influences. My personal favorite is the healthy tofu spinach tomato scramble.
23000 Pacific Coast Highway, Malibu; 310-456-1112
As the central hub of the Brentwood Country Mart, Farmshop is a constantly buzzing artisan market-meets-eatery, perfect for both quick meals and leisurely Saturdays in which you want to stroll around the super cute boutiques such as Intermix and Scoop, post-brunch.
225 26th Street, Brentwood; 310-566-2400
If you want to spend the afternoon feeling like you’re on a luxury beach vacation, Nobu, the well known sushi staple, is the place for you. The patio is an ideal place to bask in the sun and ocean breeze, all while indulging in some extra-outrageous takes on their classic items like Jidori Chicken & Waffles, Breakfast Buns and their own take on steak & eggs with 48-Hour Braised Short Rib.
22706 Pacific Coast Hwy, Malibu, CA 90265, (310) 317-9140
This summertime staple owes it popularity to not only their beautiful Spanish style patio, but their extensive brunch menu that features things like bacon wrapped dates, grilled asparagus with polenta, and meyer lemon french toast with pistachio. Yum!
8700 W. 3rd Street, Beverly Grove; (310) 859-9859
If you are up for a little drive, Mar’sel at Terranea Resort is the perfect destination for a mini-getaway brunch. Overlooking the picturesque Palos Verdes Peninsula, Mar’sel takes an inventive approach to classic Californian cuisine.
100 Terranea Way, Rancho Palos Verdes, CA 90275, (310) 265-2701
Eat your brunch in a magical treehouse in the heart of Silverlake. Cliff’s Edge’s food is as good as the setting is spectacular. Try the chicken and waffles and creamy grits.
3626 Sunset Blvd., Silverlake; (323) 666-6116
Republique’s rotating brunch menu includes items like kimchi fried rice with egg and short ribs, an oversized Belgian waffle, and an array of freshly baked pastries. Enjoy the food while marveling at the gorgeously intricate castle-like architecture, but beware of the long wait on weekends.
624 S. La Brea Ave., Mid-Wilshire; (310) 362-6115
There is one simple reason that my sister has thrown multiple birthday brunches for me here – I absolutely love it and so do all of my friends. You cannot go wrong with Cecconi’s brunch, from the beautiful sun-drenched patio to the mouthwatering ricotta pancakes, everything aligns to make the perfect Sunday afternoon brunch.
8764 Melrose Ave, West Hollywood; (310) 432-2000
Soho House West Hollywood
If you’re lucky enough to be a member, or know one, then the Soho House Sunday Brunch is not to be missed. Between the relaxed atmosphere, unbeatable views of LA, and never-ending buffet, it’s easy to get lost on a Sunday and end up staying there until the sun goes down.
9200 Sunset Blvd, West Hollywood; (310) 432-9200
Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills
A round-up of LA’s most extravagant brunches would not be complete without the Four Seasons Los Angeles at Beverly Hills topping my list. With it’s modern culinary twists and turns, this traditional Sunday brunch is the most elaborate brunch buffet you’ll probably ever see. The hotel’s restaurant, Culina Modern Italian, offers station after station with everything you could possibly hope for and more. Fresh juice bars, customized Bloody Marys, fresh sushi, dim sum, and sweet treats are only a few of items you can plan on over-indulging in.
