Whole Foods food bars, Rainy Days and Sundays

PASADENA: You read that headline correctly: The Whole Foods on Arroyo Parkway started an all-you-can-eat brunch on Sundays. Wait, it gets better. Not only can you find all sorts of breakfast goodies like pancakes, waffles, eggs, sausage, biscuits, but the meal comes with two glasses of champagne or sparkling soda, plus coffee or juice. It's like Hometown Buffet with a conscience. 10am-2pm. Cost: $19.95 for adults, $9.95 for kids 10 and under. [EaterWire]

WESTWOOD: From one of our regulars: "Well, had a polish dog at The Stand today after my gym workout, and found out that their new Westwood Village will be opening next Wednesday, if everything works out with final permits, etc., the usual 11th hour stuff." The Stand will be at 1116 Westwood Blvd., near Kinross. [EaterWire Inbox]

WESTLAKE VILLAGE: Burger palace The Counter plans to open on Russell Ranch Road this summer. The company's going big, with plans to expand all across the country. [EaterWire]

SANTA CLARITA: We got a few emails about a chef change: Luis Diaz left Wolfgang Puck's Chinois and is now at Thelma's Morning Café (22876 Copper Hill Drive). One reader sent a review: "It is a small restaurant on a mainly residential area of the city, we had to wait for a table, (a good sign, I think) we arrived at around 1:30 pm, and the small restaurant was packed. The restaurant is nice, small, unpretentious, and very clean. Everything we ordered was very good, we had a sizzling calamari and rock shrimp salad, which came with a great spicy dressing, it was excellent. We also ordered that "very well known" salad, cabbage, chicken, and crispy wonton, with a chinese mustard vinaigrette, also great. The restaurant's name is a little misleading, maybe that's what we didn't go there before, I thought it was a coffee place." [EaterWire Inbox]
