best brunch mid-city to east-LA-ish

i've really enjoyed Square One but looking for a new place that hopefully won't have a ridiculous line on the weekend...

been to Toast, Doughboy's, Grub, Blu Jam, and Griddle Cafe.

looking for something better, in this general vicinity, or a little more east.

Blu Jam Cafe
7371 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90046

  1. What about BLD?

    BLD Restaurant
    7450 Beverly Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90036

    1. I am a new fan of Masa of Echo Park. They make their bread daily and getting french toast made with freshly made brioche? A very happy thing!

      Their eggs and side potatoes are yummy too.

      Masa of Echo Park
      1800 W Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90026

      1. Can't promise no line, but Canele has one of the best brunches in the city, in my opinon...

        3219 Glendale Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90039

        1. It's not technically brunch, but Cafe Verona (201 S. La Brea) has a really great breakfast menu that you can get every day till 5. Sunday is definitely their busiest day, but you can avoid lines if you go before 10.
