YAAAAAAAASSSSSSS, look at that meal!
We came to this location expecting brunch, but after taking a look at the lunch menu, Eggs Benedict was just going to have to be put on hold.
This scrum-diddly-umptious meal was crafted by the La Brea Bakery Cafe located on La Brea. Don’t even try for street parking or valet, if you go through the alley in the back, and go down a couple stores, you’ll see an open parking lot!
Mariah and I came on a Sunday afternoon around 12pm, expecting a crazy long wait but to our surprise, it was very roomy, enough that we only waited 10 minutes to be seated at a table (as opposed to the bar, that always has open seating). We ordered a Blood Orange mimosa for myself ($9), Pineapple juice mimosa for Mariah ($13, because she subbed out the orange juice for pineapple), the La Brea Bakery Burger ($16), and the Short Rib Grilled Cheese ($16). Though pretty pricey, the quality of the meal was amazing. As much as I love mimosas and Blood Orange, I think I’ll keep the two separate next time or opt for an original mimosa. Service was super speedy and it never felt too loud or stuffy.
We did found out, actually, that there is another La Brea Bakery Cafe on Disneyland grounds before you enter the parks, but that must’ve just been another thing I glossed over. The Eggs Benedict really were calling my name but I have to give it a rest for once, I suppose. I’m sure I’ll visit this place again, seeing as you can show up on a Sunday afternoon without having to wait an hour to be seated, unlike lots of other brunch spots.
Woohoo! Happy brunching~
