Brunch at this Abbot Kinney-before-Abbot Kinney-was-Abbot Kinney bistro is all about the garden in the back: get a table back there and have a mimosa(s).26 Beach (click here for address and info)
There's a ton of foliage in the back of this beach-adjacent bistro, and a ton of astonishingly creative dishes, with curries, teriyakis, and Mexican stuffs all topped with glorious eggs. Oh, and the Bloody Marys here? Also fantastic.

This now-legendary Silverlake eggery started as a jam operation, but is now one of the best breakfast restaurants in the country, with a Food & Wine-nominated chef splashing out different specials at 8am (seared polenta cake w/ broccoli, artichoke, and fried egg) and 11am (short rib w/ sunchoke).Inn of the Seventh Ray (click here for address and info)
This woodsy restaurant's unfairly maligned as a hippie-dippy hang. Sure, their Sunday all-you-can-eat buffet has a ton of veggie options, but it also has all-you-can-eat crab legs, turkey sausage, and more for an extra $3.Scopa Italian Roots (click here for address and info)
The drinks at this massive Italian eatery have some serious pedigree (see: former La Descarga guys), which means you'll definitely be getting down on a Bloody (made with Sicilian tomatoes!) or three. Plus, their recently dropped food menu's also ridiculous, so you'll definitely also be getting down on fried eggs w/ pork belly & rapini. Or three.Salt's Cure (click here for address and info)
Get a seat at this tiny Santa Monica Blvd. front (well, wait in line for an hour, THEN get a seat at this tiny Santa Monica Blvd. front) and order up the off-menu 2x2x2, for what's basically a high-end grand slam. Roll yourself home. Repeat.Little Dom's (click here for address and info)
They've got Prosecco on the cheap at this Eastside fave, plus steak & eggs with a (sorry if this sounds a little flowery, but...) fennel-pollen hollandaise.

Recently kicked-off in Pasadena, this drink-heavy brunch does wonderful things with alcohol, like a gin-and-Campari Zissou, and it's not too bad at the food thing either. Dishes including a duck confit hash and a habanero scramble w/ caramelized onions and pumpkin seeds.
