LA's Best Date Brunch Spots 2018

By Taylor Wade
Writer for Ambiance Matchmaking

Don’t underestimate a brunch date! Personally, I love day dates, but that’s because I enjoy being out and about in Californian sunny days and relaxing at home at night. Brunch can be a great way to kickstart your date with a delicious frittata and a couple rounds of mimosas, followed by a hike, bike ride, or lazy day in the park. But before we get ahead of ourselves, let the Ambiance Matchmaking team help you pick the perfect brunch spot for your perfect day date.


HOLLYWOOD


KISMET

Kismet is a casual all-day restaurant that reimagines Mideast flavors for current-day California. “Coming from Sara Kramer and Sarah Hymason, the dynamic duo behind DTLA’s artisanal falafel counter Madcapra, the food is imaginative and impeccably sourced, and invigorating in a satisfying way. It’s not a brunch that will make you crave a nap. Get the deeply flavored shaksuka and the Turkish-ish breakfast to share. The latter is a greatest hits of salads and dips and breads from the menu, anchored by what is perhaps the best egg dish on the East Side: the kuku, a sort of frittata shot through with green herbs, studded with barberries and creamy white beans.” – CNTraveler

HANCOCK PARK


RÉPUBLIQUE

République serves modern French plates in a striking space with communal tables, plus a bakery and cocktail bar. “This is one of the rare restaurants that not only serves a killer lunch and dinner, but also treats brunch as a separate and equally important meal. It's a front-of-mind mission: there are no also-rans, repeats, or lazy moves. Instead, it’s innovative and indulgent. You’re here to eat and eat well, so plan accordingly. Either book a hike just afterward to recalibrate, or a nap. The question is, how are you going to decide what to indulge in: the pork belly sausage breakfast sandwich? The fried chicken and waffle? The pork adobo fried rice? The duck confit chili? It's by far the richest, boldest, most satisfying brunch on the West Coast.” – CNTraveler
