Breakfast in/near Brentwood
A friend/business partner and I are wanting to have a mid-morning (10-10:30am start time) breakfast today. I'd like to expand beyond what I already know and see if I can get some rec's.
I'd prefer a place that is NOT a greasy spoon, and if they are organic/farm-to-table oriented, all the better. Something with more than just pastries is preferred, I need some protein!
What I can already think of: The Larder at Tavern, Huckleberry, Clementine, Fig (love them, but not so much for breakfast), Bread and Porridge (haven't been in a while).
Has anyone tried to Blue Daisy near Whole Foods? Their savory crepes sound interesting (and I love crepes in general).
Oh, how I wish fundamental LA was open for breakfast today--it would have been a slam dunk!
Where did you end up going, sablouwho?
Blue Daisy is decent. I like their Eggs Scandia, like an Eggs Benedict but swapping in croissant for the English muffin and smoked salmon for the Canadian bacon, and their zucchini hash browns. It's a little more pedestrian than the other places you named (except for Bread and Porridge).
Even though it's probably not very Chow-worthy, the few times I had breakfast at Daily Grill in Brentwood have always been good,
I know its too late for today, and they are closed on Mondays anyway, but one of my favorite breakfasts is at Amandine. Go for the french toast -- two big pieces, fluffy, moist in the middle -- or the quiche. Supplement with one of their excellent croissants or finish with a slice of one of their wonderful cream pies -- I like the lemon. Avoid the omelettes, not bad, but certainly nothing special.
