Brunching in DTLA
We can’t think of a more superior meal than brunch. Aside from the fact that it’s the indecisive foodie’s dream by providing both lunch and breakfast options, this occasion justifies your order of bacon with a side of Bloody Mary well after you’ve slept in on a Saturday. Throw your hair in a messy bun, grab the oversized sunnies and handle the hangover like a boss at these local brunch spots.

We not only promise an Insta-worthy plate shot but an unrivaled ambiance with killer chicken and waffles. They say “lox” aren’t everything, but this local expert’s salmon, cream cheese and capers beg to differ.
Two words: Champagne Cobbler. Yes, that is a cocktail, and yes, it’s socially acceptable to order multiples before noon. Not only is this gourmet patisserie located just a block from Atelier, but offers a backdrop too pretty not to stare at.
Nestled in the heart of the historic Alexandria Hotel, this intimate Gastropub provides you with a New Orleans experience all the while offering up delicious southern comfort food. By the way, we consider opting out of ordering the biscuits and gravy a serious brunch offense.
Little Italy has a big brunch menu at this nearby neighbor. Say goodbye to your Sunday morning hangover with truffle breakfast pizza and French toast. Leaving will be the hardest thing you ever do.
Crepe things come to those who wait, but wait no longer. The patio at Redbird was made for brunching and the fried egg sandwich was meant for disappearing. Also, DIY mimosas…so there’s that.
