When it comes to brunch in Beverly Hills, the food is as glamorous as the atmosphere.
Among the five-star hotels, luxury boutiques and celebrity mansions are a spread of restaurants specializing in brunch. Cure that weekend hangover with eggs benedict and top-shelf bloody marys at the best brunch restaurants in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles.
Nestled inside the Beverly Wilshire Hotel, this elegant brunch destination provides a roster of high-end items: black-truffle frittatas, a smoked salmon benedict flush with caviar, and an ahi tuna burger. The kitchen sources local ingredients whenever possible, so you can feel good about what you are eating, too. You can either dine at the indoor dining room boasting high ceilings or choose to sit outside for views of Rodeo Drive. Pro tip: Don’t miss out on the $55-per-person bottomless champagne bar.
Serving modern Mediterranean-inspired cuisine, this small nook offers a fresh and vegetable-forward alternative to classic American brunch. The kitchen shuttles out platters of crisp falafel, organic Brussels sprouts coated in labneh, and za’atar and paneer flatbread. There are a handful of egg-focused dishes, too, such as shakshuka paired with toasted ciabatta bread and a three-grain scramble whisked with faro, quinoa and wild rice. Curl up on the intimate patio with an array of dishes to share for the table, along with flutes of blood-orange mimosas.
For the ultimate indulgence, visit this Beverly Hills favorite located just off Santa Monica Boulevard at The Peninsula Hotel. The lavish Sunday buffet teems with Meditteranean dishes (think shakshuka and flatbread sprinkled with persimmons), alongside a variety of locally sourced oysters, shrimp and crab. Bottomless champagne bottled by Nicolas Feuillatte flows for $25, and the decadence continues at the dessert bar, packed with chocolate-raspberry cheesecake, peach profiteroles and baked French toast, all for $88 per person.
Known for its celebrity sightings, this trendy brunch spot serves upscale Californian comfort food in a hip setting with an ivy-lined garden patio. Regional favorites like huevos rancheros and chilaquiles are served alongside whole Maine lobster and New York steak with eggs. For something sweet, try the buttermilk pancakes or homemade brioche French toast, then sip on a cajun bloody mary or fresh cucumber margarita.
Boasting the motto “honest to goodness,” this quaint and friendly cafe serves organic coffee and elevated American cuisine. Here, there’s something for everyone: freshly squeezed juices, house-made granola, and vegetable frittatas for those who are looking to stay healthy, and then stuffed French toast (sliced and filled with homemade jam and cream cheese before being dipped in vanilla-scented batter) for those who are, well, not.
Mirrored after a classic Belgian bakery, Le Pain Quotidien focuses on organic, wholesome and seasonal food. The space is outfitted with long wooden tables — perfect for large groups or families — and the smell of fresh bread often wafts out of the kitchen. Choose from a roster of cafe items like a dragonfruit smoothie bowl, coconut chia pudding, or steel-cut oatmeal, along with some of the freshly baked pastries and bread — both made in-house.
Perched on the top floor of Barneys, Fred’s serves brunch only on the weekends. Despite its location in a department store, you don’t have to come to Fred’s and shop downstairs. Here, classic brunch fare like the avocado toast and turkey burgers land on every table, rife with customers nursing cups of coffee. Fred’s is known for its sweeping views of the Hollywood Hills, so call ahead to reserve a table on the balcony.
