Eye on L.A. checks out the tastiest brunches in Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- This week Eye on L.A. is all about brunch! We're highlighting restaurants and activities that are perfect for a lazy Saturday or Sunday morning, an early lunch break, or a celebration. Eye on L.A's brunches will help you plan your tastiest brunch in L.A. yet.


Eye on L.A. takes you to the best places for brunch in Downtown L.A.'s Grand Central Market and all over town. Get ready for a taste bud overload, with a little extra pizzazz.

El Mercadito
If you need a fun family spot for a weekend brunch, then a visit to El Mercadito is the perfect place! Join the party as you dance to the mariachis before you sit down and enjoy the mouth-watering Mexican classics.

A Frame
There's no better way to describe Roy Choi's Hawaiian-themed A Frame than pure brunch bliss. $16 endless, mix-n-match mimosas, Bloody Marys, Micheladas and Hite Korean Lager, soaked up by stacks on stacks of $15 all-you-can eat pancakes! Pick and choose from a variety of fun flavors like buttermilk chicken or a Hawaiian-style stack like Banana Macadamia Nut or Lilikoi Butter.

My Two Cents
Walk into this warm and friendly Southern-style restaurant with your arms open wide, because you'll be getting lots of hugs. My Two Cents is a family restaurant where the love they have for their visitors shines right through their food. As you bite into their legendary fried "Chicken in Waffles" you can taste the devotion.

You may have to take a deep breath in-between all the laughter to enjoy the hysterically funny dishes at California's comfort food cafe, Grub. This little heaven is hidden away in the middle of Hollywood, but the secret is out. They have the best bacon in L.A., and pancakes with sweet rainbow surprises! Co-owners, and two peas in a pod, Betty and Denise make sure you're greeted with friendly smiles, and maybe even a pinch on the cheek.


Eye on L.A. helps you find the perfect places in the region for that very special occasion. Whether you want to celebrate with a special meal or a special moment, we've got you covered.

The District
The District by Hannah An is a magnificent oasis where one can enjoy Vietnamese traditional foods and California farm-bred foods for a unique hybrid that makes a delectable brunch. And if the glowing Edison lights don't transport you to the lantern studded streets of ancient Vietnam then your first bite of Hannah's pho certainly will!

Every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Culina in the Four Seasons Hotel offers a truly priceless food extravaganza with foods that span across three dining rooms for what seems like an endless brunch buffet.

Brunch items at Stir Market


Stir Market
We're always looking for a new experience and Stir Market is it! Bringing the European food hall to the California coast, Stir Market offers a welcoming place to shop, dine, and gather with friends. The convenience of being able to pick up pre-made meals and specialty wines at their market, while also being able to sit down for a delicious hot meal is unbeatable. They offer valet parking and open early in the morning, and stay open until 10 p.m. or later every day of the week.


It's one thing to find a place with great food, but there's something extra special about finding an eatery with an environment that can perfectly frame the food. Restaurants with just a little more magic can be a challenge to find in a city flooded with endless food options, but we've uncovered some of the best places to go to brunch that put you in exceptional and unforgettable environments.

Faith and Flower
This place is more than Instagram worthy, it's foodie fanatic material! Faith and Flower has a modern yet vintage-styled environment that is full of delicious reasons to keep coming back. It's the perfect balance between casual and chic, for both their look and their taste. Head downtown to Faith and Flower for a brunch full of precisely cooked custard-like eggs, or waffles covered in farm fresh strawberries, and finish with a decadent dessert.

Malibu Farm Pier Cafe
If you want to find paradise, all you have to do is walk to the end of the Malibu pier. At Malibu Farm, sit at one of their rustic style tables as you gaze out at the endless blue ocean, and you may even spot a few whales! And their food is just as good as the view, and will keep you coming back for more! Expect the freshest of ingredients and know that every little bit is from a local farm, including the berries on top of their highly-praised Swedish pancakes.
