Graduation brunch near UCLA (Westwood)?

Hey all,
This is early but I'm graduating in June and looking for a good brunch spot to take my family to after graduation (which is in the morning). Nine people for sure, probably more like 12-15, and my family isn't exactly rolling in it so relatively inexpensive- <$15/entree? (but still very good food) would be preferable. Close by (with easy parking) would be nice, as only a few of us are familiar with the area. I know walking distance is probably too much to hope for, but a short car ride at most.
My boyfriend and I are vegetarian, and my dad doesn't eat red meat. Ethnic food might work depending on what it is (I was thinking Shamshiri for lunch but not sure if my uncle will eat Persian).
Extra points for restaurants with comfortable (shaded, attractive etc) outdoor seating areas so my boyfriend's dog can come too.

  1. How about Coral Tree Cafe in Brentwood? 11645 San Vicente Blvd. Brentwood, CA 90049.
    Outdoor seating. Over the freeway. Valet parking. <$15 entree. Organic, vegetarian-friendly. You should be able to grab a table outside for around ten. Not sure if they reserve tables, but I think they might be able to.

        fwiw. if the OP is open to middle-eastern food, imho, shamshiri grill is a better choice than sunnin.
        nook , which has has many boosters on this board (i am not one of them) , doesn't have outdoor seating irrc.
