Springtime Brunch Spots on the Westside?

Hey...always looking for great brunch spots on the westside. Anyone tried out 17th Street Cafe on Montana?

  1. my favorite brunch spot, springtime or any time, is sunday brunch at cafe del rey.
    they offer a 3 course prix fix brunch for about $35/pp which includes a beverage.

    here's a link to the menu

    1. I like 3Square and John O'Groats (best biscuits!)

        I really like 3 Square as well. For something a little more formal and usually very reliable, Joe's Restaurant is just up the street. Some have mentioned Joe's patio area, but it's more like a room with open clerestory windows all around. The real patio is connected to Lilly's a few doors down. They may not be as loved on this board but in Venice, you can't beat their patio and the adjacent garden on a nice sunny weekend.

        Joe's Restaurant
        1023 Abbot Kinney Blvd., Venice, CA 90291

        3 Square Cafe
        1121 Abbot Kinney Blvd, Venice, CA 90291

        Lilly's French Cafe & Bar
        1031 Abbot Kinney Blvd., Venice, CA 90291

      2. For moderate but semi-outdoor and upscale feel, Joe's in Venice on Abbott Kinney. For a french bakery feel, Amandine. For big-portioned inexpensive diner, S & W on Washington in Culver City. For french toast, 26 Beach on Washington just west of Lincoln. Most overrated, John O'Groats.

        26 Beach
        3100 Washington Blvd., Venice, CA 90292

        John O'Groats
