Fred 62 does brunch with quirky LA twists. Creative dish names, like ‘Eggs in the Hole,’ ‘Breaded Frenchy’ (French toast with corn flakes) and ‘Dime Bag’ (pancake combo), keep the menu amusing. Don’t expect Denny’s-like diner food here; as a semi-gourmet bistro, several of Fred 62’s offerings are on the gourmet side.

Creative types hanging out in Los Feliz give kudos to the ingenious menu of the ultra-fancy, camp-themed neighborhood spot, Messhall Kitchen. In typical Los Felizian manner, there is the intention to have a clever sounding menu; brunch favorite sandwiches are called ‘sandos,’ for sake of being more hipster sounding. For quenching thirst, try the refreshing ‘Lemonade Grenade,’ part of the restaurant’s tactical military-influenced beverage menu.

Mustard Seed Cafe
Hipsters would say that Mustard Seed is ‘super cozy.’ Off Hillhurst and Clarissa Avenues, the corner nook is the most unassuming of this Los Feliz brunch list. No super fancy dish names here, with possible exception of entrées like ‘Green Eggs and Sam,’ eggs distinctly flavored with garlic pesto and served with salmon.
