Brunch / westside

  • 7

My friend's mother is coming to town and she wants to take her to a nice brunch place on Saturday morning - not too pricey- located on the westside - Any recommendations?

  1. 26 Beach for great French Toasts !

    3100 Washington Blvd.

    1. Joe's if you want to stay within the "not too pricey" range.

      One Pico at Shutters in Santa Monica if you want to nudge a bit higher on the "not too pricey" budget.

      1. re: ipsedixit

        Since One Pico doesn't post their prices on-line, my curiosity bubbled enough for me to call them and they said they only do brunch in One Pico on Sunday, it's ala carte ranging from $16 to $28 an entree, and I'm guessing one needs to order more to enjoy it properly.

        Joe's on the other hand has a set price option $17 to $20 for brunch either Sat. or Sun.

        For even less, one could go to Lilly's French Cafe in Venice and order one of their lunch specials for $10 (sans dessert).

      2. I second Joe's - surprisingly reasonble pricewise.

        Also a fan of the 17th Street Cafe in Brentwood, and John O'Groats on Pico.

        1. I like the brunch at Hal's Bar & Grill, on Abbot Kinney in Venice.

          Here's a link to their webpage, with the brunch menu:

            1. for tablecloth dining, i'd go to cafe del rey.
              for $22 they'll serve you a two course, great, meal that includes a glass of champagne. i believe the three course meal is about $28.
              the food is plentiful and delicious.
