LA Brunch List: Spring ’19

There is something about warm weather and brunch that just goes together. Sure, you can eat brunch any time of the year. But I enjoy it best sitting in the sun, on a cushioned bench and with many dog friends around for company. I’ve been on a roll these last couple weekends and wanted to share my go-to spots this season in LA.

Brunch at Lincoln Pasadena


Location: Pasadena
Price point: $$
Points of Charm:

  • Market and bakery located inside selling all sorts of delicious baked goods, cakes and gorgeous homewares
  • Indoor and outdoor seating, dog-friendly
  • They make a really good huevos rancheros

Ostrich Farm

Ostrich Farm

Location: Echo Park
Price Point: $$.5
Points of Charm:

  • Cute interior decor, very Farmgirl Flowers
  • What looked like a very solid cocktail selection (I didn’t partake) but was definitely eyeing the Gunslinger (tequila, mezcal, lemon juice, honey served in a tumbler with a grapefruit twist and sea salt)
  • Amazing cinnamon buns
  • Other dishes I recommend: warmed grains bowl with chicken and the morning flatbread

Pastry platter and coffees at the butcher

The Butcher, the baker, the cappuccino maker

Location: WeHo, on Sunset
Price Point: $$.5
Points of Charm:

  • Seamless indoor/outdoor setup, dog-friendly
  • Cushioned bench seating, good tablespace
  • All menu items available, not just brunch, which was great because we really wanted to try the hand-cut tagliatelle pasta. (It was delish).
  • Other dishes I recommend: skillet-baked mushroom omelet and the ricotta pancakes with apple cinnamon jam
