Best Brunch Spots in L.A:


Located in Downtown Los Angeles, Redbird is one of the most unique brunch spots in all of LA. What was once a cathedral, now event space serves New American dishes that are paired with creative cocktails in a historic setting. With 35 shared option dishes, a spacious lounge area with a bar, and a massive main dining room, this brunch spot is ideal for large groups. A must-try when you visit Redbird is the Aged Liberty Farm Duck. With huge portion sizes, come hungry and with a large group. 

Here’s Looking at You

If you are into trying weird yet, fantastic food, then Here’s Looking at You is the brunch spot for you. Since opening its doors in 2016, Here’s Looking at you has been pushing the envelope and experiments with different flavor combinations. Located in Koreatown on 6th Street, this restaurant has been known to be as unique as its decor. The whole-roasted sea bream is covered in a housemade, green curry version with Rice Krispies, which gives a wonderful contrast to the buttery texture of the fish. Overall, the food seems different from anything else in the city.

Best Brunch Spots in Santa Monica: 

Little Prince

Now let’s head over to the west side and visit the restaurant next on our list, Little Prince. This seasonal American restaurant located in Santa Monica has a menu with craft cocktails and some of the most delicious sticky buns in the city. Little Prince started as a pop-up brunch and became a permanent resident with a wood-fired menu and all-natural wine list.  With starters like salmon rillette and brussels sprouts and entrees such as the wood-fired lamb ribs, be sure to add this to your list. 


Next on our list is a neighborhood bistro committed to fresh, seasonal cuisine. Located inside the Fairmont Hotel in Santa Monica, FIG is an all-day cafe with a literal Happy Hour (5 pm- 6 pm) that some claim to be the best on the westside. Every Tuesday – Saturday, nearly the entire FIG menu is 50% off. To one fry lover to another, I recommend the crispy spicy fries served with Harissa and garlic mayo. The chili paste mixed with the garlic mayo was like nothing we’ve ever had. Although the food is great at any time of the day, it would be a shame to go any time other than happy hour.

Best Brunch Spots in The Valley:

Blu Jam Cafe

Now we head over to one of the more popular spots on our list, Blu Jam Cafe. With 7 locations all around Los Angeles and the Valley, this all-day breakfast cafe is a crowd favorite. One of their most popular items on the menus is their crunchy french toast made with French brioche dipped in secret batter, rolled in crunchy corn flakes and grilled to perfection. Also, try their assortment of Benedicts such as the Norwegian Benedict. Blu Jam Cafe’s wait time is usually over an hour on weekends, so arrive early.

Los Balcones

Another neighborhood favorite is a combination of authentic Spanish and Peruvian Cuisine called Los Balcones. With locations in Studio City and Hollywood, the dishes are completely different from each other. They serve up specialties such as fresh ceviche and Peruvian BBQ dishes like grilled beef hearts in a chili pepper marinade. They also make their popular piquant salsa you won’t find anywhere else.

Best Brunch Spots in Venice:

Butcher’s Daughter

Originally from New York, The Butcher’s Daughter exhibits California roots. Located on Abbot Kinney Blvd. in Venice, this plant-based cafe and juice bar takes pride in its daily menu changes. With a section devoted to Avocado Toast, other items like cauliflower grits are a must-try.  This restaurant is committed to buying produce from local and organic farms. Chef Nicolas Torrant will have you seriously considering becoming a vegetarian.


Our last stop in our Brunch journey is none other than Gjusta. Located in Venice, Gjusta is a bakery that also roasts meat, makes charcuterie, and smokes fish. This bakery is famous for its variety of sandwiches such as the house-smoked and rotisserie butcher sandwiches. On the sweet side, a banana chocolate tart, while pricey, is worth some indulgence.
