3 Best Restaurants for Brunch in Los Angeles

Brunch so hard. I love brunch, most people love brunch, if you don’t love brunch you’re missing out! I’ve compiled a list of MY favorite brunch spots in Los Angeles, and while this list isn’t the end all, be all you definitely have to try these spots if you’re in the LA area or coming to the LA area in the near future. Whether you’re looking for good drinks or good food, one of these places is sure to satisfy your craving. Part 2 coming soon!

The Hudson (West Hollywood)

Great spot for brunch! I think all of my girls and I have at least had or hosted a brunch for our birthdays and everytime we do, it’s always a great decision. My first time at The Hudson was for a birthday brunch; this spot is super cute and actually to my surprise had a nice sized dining area. It also is built with a tree coming through a quarter of it which is nice because instead of removing the tree to build, they kept the tree to add to the uniqueness of the spot.

They have great mimosas mixed to perfection, an array of food, sweet and savory and really good portion sizes. I had a Texas toast grilled cheese and it was amazing! Parking can be a bit tricky because it is WeHo but they do have valet if you don’t mind a little walk. I overall loved it and would definitely go back.

Tart (Mid LA)

I went to Tart for my 24th birthday (wow time flies) and it was such a great time. If you are starving (or just eat a lot like me) then you might want to order more than one thing; the portions aren’t scarce by any means but for me they were a bit small for my appetite. They have chicken and waffles and waffle sandwiches, a updated take on popular dishes. They are also known for their punch bowls of liquor.

You can do half a bottle or a full bottle and share amongst your friends. It’s the perfect hidden gem right across from the Grove LA. There is a small parking lot, but I wouldn’t recommend coming 20 cars deep. One thing that I enjoyed that is so unique compared to other restaurants is they give you a birthday martini instead of dessert. I would definitely recommend it and can’t wait to go back.

Blu Jam Cafe (Melrose)

I finally got to try Blu Jam after a morning hike for a girlfriends birthday.  I had always heard good things so I knew it would be worth it. The wait was pretty long but the food made up for it. I always tend to be with a larger group when I’m going to most places so that played a roll in our wait time as well. The place is big enough to accommodate a lot of people but it’s narrow in it’s build.

Once we were seated, we ordered and we were served relatively quick. They have everything from pancakes to french toast to breakfast scrambles and each item has it’s own unique flavor and look. If you’re a really impatient person this place might not be for you; a smaller group doesn’t indicate faster wait time. At this point I’ve been back so many times and strongly recommend the Camille, a breakfast scramble and an iced dirty chai.
