DTLA Sunday brunch?

Going to a matinee LA Phil concert at Disney Hall Sunday. Would like to grab some decent food beforehand solo. Prefer a place with some good beer or wine. Thinking about hitting up Bottega Louie or Lazy Ox again but would like to find something better. Don't want to spend >$30. Any recs?

  1. Tiara Cafe is now back to offering brunch again - and while they don't have a huge wine list, they do have some nice stuff -

    Pete's Cafe has a nice brunch and a decent wine list -

    1. Baco Mercat does brunch 11:30-3pm.

      and don't forget Nickel Dinner and bacon donuts.

      1. Thanks for these good recs. I've had Baco Mercat on my radar and didn't know they were open for brunch on Sunday so that's probably going to be my first choice. And if the wait's too long I could walk over to Pete's so I should be covered.

          If it's available, try the biscuit and gravy - it doesn't sound like much, but I think it's to die for.

            Yeah I saw a picture of Baco's biscuit and gravy and it looked pretty tasty.

            Add MF Gourmet to your rotation? It's way more interesting than Pete's (which I find so absolutely unbearable). But it has no booze.

            For beer with brunch, I'd do Artisan House. Really like their reuben, breakfast items. Umamicatessen is open at 11am, but no "brunch" items.

          3. We sometimes go to Sunday matinees and find Pete's Cafe pretty reliable. It won't knock your socks off, but the pickings are pretty slim for Sunday brunch in the area.
