Where is a good brunch spot that also serves nice mimosas/bloody marys etc.?
Good brunch and good alcohol. Is that too much to ask for in this town?

    Anisette. And they have a menu of about 1/2 dozen different bloody marys. They take them seriously there.

      Actually I have been there twice for breakfast and although I enjoy the food there bloody marys are less than to be desired. They don't roll them back and forth like a proper bloody mary should. They are thick and one time my friends was foamy..clearly because they shook it. Just because they have more than one kind doesn't mean they take it seriously. It means they have more than one kind.

        the Farmers Market bloody mary that I had there was fantastic. They do need to invest in celery salt, though.

          >>th[eir] bloody marys are less than to be desired. They don't roll them back and forth like a proper bloody mary should. They are thick and one time my friends was foamy..clearly because they shook it. <<

          Maybe this should be moved to the spirits board, but I'm confused by these comments. What do you mean by "rolling" the drink "back and forth"? Why can't a bloody mary be thick? Why can't a bloody mary be shaken?

          You've peaked my curiosity . . .

                I like the Tam O'Shanter for a funky old school kind of brunch. The Drinks are stiff, the bubbles flow non stop and the food is good. Not innovative, but solid. Most of the waitresses and waiters are very cool too.

                  Lucky Devils has bottomless mimosas and good food too!

                    I love the brunch at Hungry Cat. They have excellent cocktails and delicious food, although the menu is a bit eclectic.

                    Campanile is another tried and true brunch option, with good food and good drinks.

                        The Belmont on La Cienega has a make your own bloody mary bar that is pretty nice. The food is decent, not amazing though.
