Favorite LA Brunch Spots: Part 2

Life, TravelShannon GuerreroComment

Another day, another blog post, another place to brunch.  Here's five more of my favorite places to brunch all around Los Angeles, hooray!


This is probably one of my favorite breakfast places to eat in the Los Angeles area.  It is located in Grand Central Market, which I talked about briefly in one of my very first blog posts.  If you get to Egg Slut past 9am, you'll be waiting in line for more than an hour.  So get there super early (they open the doors at 8am but people already start to line up earlier than that) or be prepared to wait, but trust me it is all worth it.  My favorite is the Sausage, Egg and Cheese sandwich - honey mustard aioli, a runny egg and a fresh, warm brioche bun, yes please!


I’ve been hearing about Malibu Farm for a long time now, and dying to try it ever since.  I finally got the chance to go and it did not disappoint.  The food is farm to table style and really delicious, but the atmosphere and views are hands down what make the experience. If you’re looking for a great place to brunch with a view, keep this place in mind.  The parking can be a little tricky, but if you wait in line for the parking lot directing in front of the pier, chances are people will be leaving.


Joan’s on Third is probably one of the hippest place you can go to eat.  It’s a super cute gourmet marketplace and cafe to grab food.  Their desserts and cakes are also really delicious.  There are multiple counters that you can order from, so don’t get confused when you walk in.  Chances are if you get into the corner line, you’ll be staring at the pastries while you wait. You’ll definitely be tempted because they are so delicious.  This is the original location but there are a few locations if you’re curious and not in the mid-city area!


Everything about the Lincoln in Pasadena screams cuteness.  It is the picture perfect little cafe and marketplace and the food is absolutely amazing.  The passion fruit lemonade that I got here was so tasty.  The Lincoln also has a cute store next door.  It's one of those boutiques that has knick knacks that you could always use more of.


Located on the first floor of the Ace Hotel Downtown, LA Chapter is a super hip place to grab brunch on the weekend.  They have the most delicious avocado toast and homemade ricotta toast with honeycomb that seriously rivals the same dishes at Sqirl.  The honeycomb on the ricotta toast is really next level.  Once you finish lunch make sure to head to the store across the lobby to take pictures in their photobooth or head upstairs to the rooftop for more drinks and great views of the city.

Go on, check one of these out this weekend.  You won't regret it.
