Eat Out

Our favorite outdoor brunch spots in L.A.

Brunch is always in season in L.A., but we're on the cusp of summer. And with Mother's Day in mind, these 8 outdoor brunch spots feel (and taste) just right.

① The Churchill
On its modern patio with a slightly Euro feel, this 3rd Street classic covers every late-to-rise hankering, from Croque Madames and breakfast burritos to steak and eggs and save-for-later pizzas.

② Malibu Farm
Shaded tables that overlook the Pacific stacked high with quinoa coconut milk oatmeal, chicken ricotta bacon burgers with broccoli mashed potatoes and bright glasses of apple kale juice: California dining at its best.

③ Willie Jane
At this lush garden spot with a trickling fountain and an extra-friendly staff, you can pair a bourbon, ginger, lavender honey and lemon Coal Miner's Daughter with deviled eggs with smoked shrimp or spicy fried chicken and waffles.

④ Cliff's Edge
In a not-so-secret back garden shaded by a dramatic ficus tree, dishes such as lemon ricotta pancakes with honey blueberry sauce and pork belly hash taste even better.

⑤ Post & Beam
You'll forget where you are (Baldwin Hills) on this minimal patio surrounded by chef Govind Armstrong's go-to garden. Plan for a carb fest of French toast with Nutella or a fried egg and arugula pizza.

Cecconi's
A surprisingly affordable spot with a chic WeHo outside. Cicchetti small bites, asparagus and goat cheese frittatas, crêpes, lasagne verde: Share everything with a glass of prosecco.

⑦ Cast & Plow
The Ritz-Carlton's revamped restaurant overlooks the Marina, and its $75 per person bottomless champagne brunch is anything but typical: Try smoked ham hock and Canadian bacon with poached egg and blue cheese hollandaise or orange pancakes with almonds.

⑧ Tart
This bustling charmer is pure fun. Enjoy sweet (a Belgian waffle) and savory (crab cake Benedict) with a solid Bloody Mary.
