Visit Another Kind of Sunrise in Venice for healthier options. Their breakfast bowls and smoothies are a hit with the health-minded brunch crowd. They offer everything from paleo granola to gluten free muffin tops.
For a relaxing brunch before 11:30 a.m., try Café Vida. Their menu focuses on healthful cuisine. Order the delicious blueberry corn cakes, topped with maple syrup and powdered sugar.
Brunch can be an eclectic affair — ranging from indulgent to light and energizing, sweet to savory. Whatever your tastes and dietary preferences, Los Angeles has a brunch spot for you.
