Surrounded by media giants like Warner Bros, ABC Studios, and The Walt Disney Company, Burbank, California is recognized as the ‘Media Capital of the World.’ Alongside this evolving entertainment is a city that features great places to eat. Check out our picks for the best brunch spots.
Burbank’s food scene would not be complete without a touch of Cuba from Porto’s. The cafe might seem spacious if not for the long lines that often flow out the door. Don’t worry — you won’t have to wait long for Porto’s most popular items; the meat-stuffed potato balls and meat pies fly off the display counter. The aroma of cumin-spiced sandwiches like the ropa vieja — made with tender, thinly shredded flank steak — fills the air. Porto’s bakers prepare dough to make a variety of sandwich breads daily. Polish it off with a guava and cheese pastry, a cheese roll, or take the sweet and spongy Tres Leches sheet cake home.

For champagne and fancy spreads, indulge in the weekend buffet brunch at Castaway. Perched high upon the Burbank hills, Castaway has been nicknamed ‘The Jewel On The Hill’. Both the San Fernando Valley and the sprawling city of Los Angeles are beneath it, which means incredible views. The brunch buffet is only available on weekends and offers many menu options, like the Maryland-style crab cakes and the seafood pasta.
