Brunch in L.A. is a Thing, Apparently

pannekoeken 4

So I know brunch is brunch is brunch, right? Everyone loves this marvelous mash-up meal. Sleep in, brunch your way into the afternoon, then consider  a nap. Take it, friends. Take the nap. It’s Sunday, Sabbath-day.

Not to mention the fact that the food is everything anyone ever cared about combined into one meal. Mimosas at any hour + every amazing sweet breakfast pastry + a salad if you feel like it. My three main food groups.

But in L.A., I feel like people really love brunch. Like, it is a regular, glamorous thing that people do. Maybe more so than in the Midwest. I try and do brunch as often as possible on my own terms, like this recent one which included a pannekoeken/dutch baby. (I had been waiting to try one forever. They really are a cinch to make, and they look so impressive, all puffed up like a pastry peacock.)

But omword did I really enjoy a few restaurant brunches while on vaca. Including:


Ranunculus and San Pellegrino (because this is L.A.) and a prosciutto and Gruyère croissant.


And even this bread pudding. I know. Just stop.

And once even crepes, my true love.

But always coffee.

Brunching blissfully,

    When we vacationed in San Diego, we could hardly find a restaurant that was serving lunch on a Saturday! Maybe it’s a California thing. Your meal looks delicious!

    This just makes me want to drop everything and go do brunch! LAzy, beachfront avenue, wavesoundz, brunchable delicacies, and white mocha lattes. Let us make a departure. Patisserie 46 this summer.
