Few places do brunch quite like West Hollywood. The city is both laidback and lively, letting travelers start their day on their own time, then join the local beat without skipping a step. With popular restaurants offering everything from drag shows to bottomless mimosas, you’re bound to find a new favorite brunch spot during your trip.

Ready to eggs-plore a few of WeHo’s best restaurants?

Hamburger Mary’s

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but Hamburger Mary’s drag brunches just might be WeHo’s very favorite meal. This restaurant proudly welcomes people of all sexual orientations and genders, drawing quite the crowd in turn. Since it reaches full capacity on most weekends, it’s a good idea to make an online reservation well in advance.

Hamburger Mary's serves a drag brunch every weekend.

Hamburger Mary’s also hosts several themed events every week, including trivia nights, drag bingo, and Dreamgirls revues — so even if you’re not visiting on the weekend, it’s well worth a visit.

Cavatina at Sunset Marquis

If LA’s foodies are flocking to a hotel restaurant for brunch, you know that the eatery is doing something right. The Sunset Marquis prides itself on its incredible gardens and rock n’ roll aesthetic (the hotel even has its own recording studio), and its restaurant — Cavatina — is one of the best brunch spots in West Hollywood.

Pearl's Rooftop is a beloved brunch spot in West Hollywood.

Whether you choose the Santa Barbara smoked salmon, grilled chicken paillard, Chino Valley omelet, or something else entirely, you’re in for a treat. If you’d like to eat on the patio, make sure to reserve your table early, especially around holidays like Easter and Mother’s Day. After all, when it comes to dining al fresco and eating like royalty, you can’t do better than Cavatina!

Pearl’s Rooftop

If you’d like to pair your food with an upscale, classy patio, Pearl’s Rooftop is the place for you. This open-air restaurant is known for its white brick and floral decor, but its mix-your-own-mimosa kits and fresh seafood also set it apart — simply put, it strikes the perfect balance of looking Instagrammable and offering delicious food.

While the menu is full of yummy entrées, we recommend the margarita flatbread and the avocado toast, and for appetizers, you can’t go wrong with the salt-and-vinegar Parmesan fries. As far as drinks go, you might like the kombucha, Red Dust, Tarragon with the Wind, or Mules of the Game. Cheers!

The Abbey

While the Abbey is best known as a gay bar (in fact, it’s the two-time winner of MTV’s Best Gay Bar in the World), it also serves brunch all day long. The menu includes items like an almond banana French toast or an egg white scramble, but if you’re not in the mood for breakfast food, you’ll have plenty of other options.

Of course, the great entertainment and fun atmosphere are the real reason that people love visiting the Abbey. Just remember to bring enough cash to tip the queens!

Scrumptious Café and Bakery

Sometimes the name says it all — and this is one of those cases. After all, Scrumptious Café and Bakery serves some of the best breakfast food in Southern California. With dishes like huevos rancheros, baked eggs, and breakfast sandwiches, the menu is fairly standard, but the café also serves a great vegan scramble, and the lattés and pastries are delicious, too.

Scrumptious offers relaxed outdoor seating just off of Santa Monica Boulevard. So, if you’re looking for a good brunch away from the crowds, you might want to put this café at the top of your list. Enjoy!

Even though West Hollywood is a small city, its restaurants pack a punch. No matter what kind of food (or atmosphere) you expect from a brunch spot, we can guarantee that you’ll find it in WeHo.
