Though The Little Next Door isn't new, it's newly busy. The strong espresso and semi-private dog-friendly patio is perfect for cooler weekend mornings. See also: hot servers.

Santa Monica, CA 90402

Jeffrey Cerciello's impeccably stocked larder, bakery and restaurant serves up a pitch perfect brunch, right down to the nutty, buttery granola bits.

(213) 687-8808

Chef Josef Centeno stretches his baco-wings to cover brunch too. His yeasted waffle and dry-cured ham plate are an excellent pair.

7. Superba Snack Bar

Copy Link
533 Rose Ave.
Venice, CA 90291

Chef Jason Neroni makes standard egg dishes interesting. Consider the poached eggs with green chorizo fondu on pan con tomato or simple sunny side eggs with kale pesto, crispy russets, Brussels sprouts & caramelized onions.

8. Wolfgang Puck at the Hotel Bel Air

Copy Link
701 Stone Canyon Rd
Los Angeles, CA 90077
(310) 909-1617

People describe the brunch here, a collaboration between Wolfgang Puck and Sherry Yard, as "epic." The classy yet casual dining room feels like it's in the middle of the woods, and the dishes sparkle.

Chef Jason Travi is putting out his spin on a New England-style brunch with lobster fritattas and his maple eggs, already a staple on the dinner menu. The Nutella French toast doesn't sound too bad, either.

10. The Hart + The Hunter

Copy Link
7950 Melrose Ave
Los Angeles, CA 90046
(323) 424-3055

The H + The H has reached a critical mass in popularity, and the biscuits are to blame. We recommend arriving early and often.

11. Goldie's

Los Angeles, CA 90048
(323) 677-2470

Well, it didn't take long for Nick Mathers' (Eveleigh) boho-chic new eatery to blow up. Now open for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner, Goldie's on West Third is the place to be for seasonal, inspired plates by chef Thomas Lim.

12. G&B at SQIRL

Copy Link
720 N. Virgil
Los Angeles, Ca 90029

G&B at SQIRL is little more than a counter and a kitchen, but fans swear by the coffee and pastries and breads and spreads, which are all prepared right in front of your eyes.
