If breakfast is the most important meal of the day, isn’t that reason enough to get serious about weekend brunch? Whether you’re craving a sweet start to your morning with the city’s best pancakes, a savory plate of eggs or a healthy açai bowl, we’ve scoured the best brunch restaurants in Los Angeles. From the Westside to the Eastside and neighborhoods beyond, these are the city’s best eateries for fueling up in the morning.
Before you dig in, a brief note: A few of our brunch favorites—such as Salt’s Cure, Little Ruby and Little Prince—are temporarily closed for brunch service, so we’ve temporarily removed them from this guide (don’t worry, it’s just for the time being). All spots listed here are currently open in some form, though these days are strange days for restaurants and some might only be offering takeout service or limited menus. Call or look online to check menus and availability before stopping by.
