Originally part of a Mexican land grant in the late 19th century, Brentwood was developed as a suburb of Los Angeles at the turn of the century and went on to host the Olympic games in 1932. Its history and present are intricately intertwined with Hollywood, and it remains a beautiful and affluent neighborhood situated on the slopes of the Santa Monica mountains.
Residents of Brentwood enjoy upscale boutiques and popular restaurants in this peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles. Those coming to Brentwood to live or just for the weekend all want to know the same thing- where to grab the best brunch in Brentwood.
1. Coral Tree Cafe
The founders of Coral Tree Café were Brentwood residents who aimed to provide a unique dining experience that differed from what was already available in their neighborhood. Coral Tree Café opened in 2002 and has been one of the most popular Brentwood brunch spots ever since, featuring a menu full of favorites like avocado toast, blueberry pancakes, egg scrambles, and a variety of fresh paninis.
The café aims to offer high-quality cuisine and a laid-back setting, whether you prefer to dine indoors or enjoy the outdoor patio.
Farmshop is a restaurant, bakery, and market located in the Brentwood Country Mart. They serve California-inspired food made with locally sourced ingredients for breakfast, lunch, and dinner- and, of course, brunch on the weekends. Their bakery sells homemade croissants, muffins, and cookies, while their market offers prepared foods, charcuterie, cheese, chocolate, produce, wine, and beer.
3. A.O.C. Brentwood
Visitors to the resplendent A.O.C. Brentwood location shouldn't be fooled by the focus on quality wine, though; the plates at A.O.C. are exquisite at every meal. Brunch favorites include sticky buns to start, crab omelets and vanilla bean french toast as mains, and toasted blueberry bread and lemon butter as sides. The ingredients are locally sourced, and the menu is exquisitely curated for an unforgettable meal.

6. WEST Restaurant and Lounge
The menu of Chef Laura Scollan is inspired by the diverse and intricate qualities of the city. It includes a wide range of shareable plates, family-style entrees, and main courses featuring exceptional produce and proteins from some of Southern California's best farms. Brunch is served from 6 am to 2 pm on the weekends, offering unique dishes like Caramel Banana Waffles, classics like Bagel and Lox, a Breakfast Burrito or an Açaí Bowl, and of course, the Brentwood Breakfast—with gluten-free options, and a brunch drink menu that includes mimosas and a bloody mary.
7. Lazy Daisy Cafe
Classic brunch dishes are served up daily at Lazy Daisy Cafe, such as pancakes, waffles, and egg dishes, to unique takes on breakfast like Tofu Bruschetta, Chilaquiles, and Carne Asado con Huevos. Additionally, guests can get simple breakfast items like cereal, toast, and yogurt if they aren't in the mood for a heavy brunch.
8. Blu Jam Cafe
Every Blu Jam location doesn't have freezers, so all the food served is fresh and prepared upon order. Ingredients are mostly organic, and even if they are not, they are very high quality and all-natural. Blu Jam tries to obtain their ingredients locally from farmer's markets, ranches, and suppliers who purchase locally. The expansive breakfast menu serves up anything and everything all day, from Breakfast Pasta to Brunch Carbonara, Eggs Benedict, and a Hangover Scramble.
