As if it weren’t obvious by now, brunch is by far the best meal of the day! There’s something almost sacred about waking up on a lazy weekend morning, putting on some cute — and comfy — clothes and meeting up with your friends for a delicious meal. From yummy pastries to trendy smoothie bowls, brunch is the one place for all things eye-catching and mouthwatering. Thanks to these delicious and photogenic plates, brunch is also the trendiest and most Instagrammable meal out there, and what better place to try these foods than the trendiest city in America: Los Angeles, California! Check out these places for brunch in LA that won’t disappoint.
1. Great White Venice – 1604 Pacific Ave, Venice, CA 90291
If you’re looking for a cute, “so-LA” place to grab brunch with friends after an early morning at the beach, look no further than Great White Venice. Great White is a happy, little cafe with plenty of healthy, yet delicious food and is always packed with the budding media influencer crowd, so get ready to feel very “LA.” Make sure to get their signature blue algae smoothie bowl for the perfect snap AND the chance to eat blue food — always a treat!
2. Republique – 624 South La Brea Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90036
Republique is the French food haven you’ve been dreaming about and now’s your chance to make this dream a reality. With its extensive menu filled with creative pieces like a caviar bagel (surprisingly under $20) and sweet chia pudding, you’ll find yourself wanting to order everything on the menu. Plus it’s all so photogenic you’re going to want to take loads of pictures before you start digging in. Just beware, it is a bit on the pricier side due to its high-quality ingredients, so I would come prepared to shell out some dollars if you want the full experience for brunch in LA.

5. Sqirl – 720 N Virgil Ave #4, Los Angeles, CA 90029
Our final brunch spot has a bit of an odd name (a combination of “squirrel” and “girl,” but there’s nothing weird about this place. Sqirl actually started off as a jam company, but developed into a hip, new breakfast spot. The food is fresh, delicious, refreshing and will leave you with a newfound appreciation for creative cuisine.
