AVABLU

West LA’s Vicini has recently added a brunch to its weekly lineup. Find bananas foster french toast, a breakfast sandwich with fried mortadella, a selection of crepes, and more on the menu. The brunch is only available on the weekend though, so plan ahead.

Tapizon

For bottomless brunch, head to El Segundo’s Tapizon. On Sundays, the restaurant offers a Bossa Nova brunch with all-you-can-drink mimosas, plus Brazilian bites including feijoada, picanha steak and eggs, and french toast. If bottomless, with a side of Bossa Nova, isn’t on the agenda, the brunch menu is also available on Saturdays.

Crustacean

This longtime Beverly Hills restaurant offers a prix fixe brunch menu that costs $49 with a huge number of choices served in three courses. Appetizers might be an ube souffle pancake or pistachio squash toast with crispy artichoke. The Vietnamese-inspired mains include classic beef pho, a wagyu “crispy rice” Benedict (for an additional $5), and ribeye banh mi “pho” dip. Finish with warm beignets or ice cream. Brunch is served from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.

Stanley's Wet Goods

During daytime hours Culver City’s wine shop, Stanley’s Wet Goods, cooks up an impressive brunch. The menu features Turkish eggs with garlicky lemon-herb yogurt; eggs on toasted Bub and Grandma’s sourdough with prosciutto, pesto, arugula, and aged Parmesan; and a meatball panino. Given the shop’s extensive wine collection, there are lots of by-the-glass options to pair with the meal.

One of LA’s hottest new pizza spots also offers a daily brunch from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m., with lunch options starting right after. On the breakfast menu at Prima Donna, find a full bread section with options including croissants and a bagel with lox, plus lemon ricotta pancakes, a market frittata, and more.

Though Norma may be better known for its dinner offerings, head to West Hollywood on a Sunday morning to find the restaurant serving a full brunch menu.

Liu's Cafe

Koreatown’s fresh daytime cafe serves a tight menu of pineapple bun pastries, beef curry croquettes, tea egg salad brioche sandwiches, and Hong Kong-style french toast. A weekend-only Grand Slam includes french toast, two eggs, and an option of Taiwanese sausage or tater tots. Finish meals with a refreshing milk tea or iced jasmine passionfruit tea. Parking is a bit tough, which makes transit the better choice.

Moonlark's Dinette

Copy Link

The ground floor of the Hoxton makes for an ideal diner space, so Boka Group, which operates Cabra upstairs and the Girl and the Goat in the Arts District, converted the former Cafe Basque into Moonlark’s Dinette. With chef Chris Pandel at the helm, expect a true Midwestern approach to daytime fare like a deluxe breakfast sandwich with Taylor ham on a housemade English muffin, a sweet-salty Monte Cristo sandwich, and chilaquiles verdes.
