This week Eye on L.A. teams up with Los Angeles Magazine to show you some of the best, most incredible, brunches in town!

UNIQUE PANCAKE/FRENCH TOAST PLACES
Canel? in Atwater Village is known far and wide for their gigantic hunks of French bread style French toast which is soaked in custard for 24 hours! And over at Square One in Glendale, the brioche French toast is a decadent treat!

YOU GOTTA TRY THIS: BRUXIE WAFFLES!
A Bruxie is a gourmet waffle sandwich made with an authentic Brussels waffle which is light, airy, crispy and not sweet at all. But it's what they're folding inside of these crispy creations that have O.C. residents lining up out the door.

BOOZY BRUNCHES
If there's one time that it's socially acceptable to drink before noon -- it's for brunch! The Belmont in West Hollywood offers a D.I.Y. Bloody Mary bar, which is sort of like an alcohol-infused salad bar! At Roy Choi's Sunny Spot in Venice they go bottomless! Mix and match your mimosas, Bloody Marys, cava or rum punch for the one low price of 12 bucks. And then there's Eveleigh on Sunset Blvd -- Dave Kupchinsky is the man behind the bar program, with thoughtful and inventive cocktails.

Los Angeles Magazine sought out some of the most unique takes on the favorite breakfast classic. At Blu Jam Caf? on Melrose, their perfectly poached eggs with crispy bacon are topped with homemade hollandaise. On Robertson Boulevard at Petrossian, we found a little taste of France!
