11 Jul Chic Outdoor Patios for Brunch
Hello Brunchers! We are Leah & Kate, of LA Brunchers, Los Angeles’s one and only brunch gurus. We answer that burning question you confront each Saturday and Sunday morning – “Where to brunch!?” Whether you want a gorgeous patio, endless mimosas, or a breathtaking view, we make finding the perfect brunch easy. We even break it down by neighborhood on our website, labrunchers.com, for your very own Brunch GPS. We are so excited to be Focus magazine’s brunch authorities, and to kick things off we are going to share with you our two favorite summertime brunch spots. Both have one summer brunch staple in common – chic outdoor patios.
Newly-opened Gracias Madre on Melrose oozes Southern California charm with a spacious courtyard patio, complete with oversized umbrellas and sunny table options. The restaurant is vegan, but you won’t actually notice the bacon is missing because the food is so flavorful. The Mexican-inspired fare pairs well with the breezy Riviera European feel. Order the refreshing Quincinera cocktail (topped with a snow cone scoop!), nibble on Avocado Toast, and feast on the hearty Chimichanga.
Gracias Madre 8905 Melrose Ave. West Hollywood (323) 978-2170 graciasmadreweho.com brunch served Sunday 11am – 3pm.
Looking for a meatier option? Head to our summer locale Oscar’s Cerveteca. We adore the Venice rustic-chic patio, community feel and hearty portions. Order the Brioche Breakfast Sandwich with guacamole or their Beer Batter Waffles. The big flavors pair nicely with a cold Michelada or Mimosa. What’s even better – both places are dog friendly. Grab your sunscreen and sunglasses, and go out there and get your summertime brunch on!
Oscar’s Cerveteca 523 Rose Ave. Venice (310) 310-8937 cervetecala.com brunch served Saturday & Sunday 10am – 3pm.
