Welcome back sipping on mimosas with friends by visiting these restaurants!
A lot of local favorites have either evolved with the pandemic or had to close its doors as Los Angeles starts to lift restrictions. With a mix of “outdoor dining available” and even some “limited indoor dining now open” it becomes quite hard figuring out which restaurant does what. We went on the hunt for the ten best Beverly Hills brunch spots for 2021. A good blend of brunch options that are open for dining, featuring timeless restaurants and others that are new to Beverly Hills, can be found on this list so that you do not have to.
1. The Cabana Cafe
Let us start with a classic pick: The Beverly Hills Hotel Cabana Club. Newly open for dine-in, enjoy al fresco brunch surrounded by the “Pink Palace” fruity hues. May we recommend the avocado toast or the organic blueberry pancakes? Click here to reserve the classic poolside dining experience!
2. The Rooftop by JG
The vibes here are immaculate, thanks to the panoramic views. What to pair with your morning. Libations, though? Top picks include creamy burrata with toast, fluffy buttermilk pancakes, and bright avocado toast. Click here to make a reservation!

3. The BLVD Privé
This pop-up is Beverly Wilshire’s newest debut. The ambience is set to resemble what Beverly Hills looked like in yesteryear matched with fresh Californian cuisine. Keep your eyes out for their char grilled lobster with roasted garlic oil and french toast made with soft brioche. Click here to make a reservation before the pop-up disappears!
4. The Terrace
You can find The Terrace in Maybourne Beverly Hills’ lovely garden, complete with white parasols and bright flora. You cannot go wrong with their menu. The Terrace introduces fresh, healthy ingredients to brunch favorites, and the result is a quintessential Beverly Hills brunch. Click here to view their weekend brunch menu and make reservations!
5. Joan’s on Third
Although more casual than the restaurants that precede this one, Joan’s on Third has to be featured because it is one of the best family-owned restaurants in Beverly Hills. The long line outside Joan’s agrees with us. Breakfast is served all day everyday but do not shy away from their morning buns, only served on the weekends. No reservations are needed, so click here to explore Joan’s menu!

6. Bacari W 3rd
Bacari is always a good idea for their impressive cocktails but on the weekends, the brunch lineup steals the show. There is an assortment of sweet and savory breakfast dishes, with gluten free and vegan options! Not completely sold yet? Their bottomless libation options are amazing. Take your pick between mimosas, bellinis, beer, wine, and sangria.

7. Le Pain Quotidien
This bakery is another casual spot, but undeniably a Los Angeles favorite for brunch. The creamy avocado toast with citrus cumin salt and the colorful Belgian liege waffle with fresh cream and berries stand out to us. Both go perfectly with LPQ’s iced latte.

As an elevated Mexican restaurant, the weekend brunch blends the trendiest ingredients with the best Latin dishes. Everyone raves over Mírame’s spicy margaritas, but do not overlook their lighter shrimp tostada or their smoky quesabirria. Both are unforgettable. Pick any time between noon and 3 on the weekends, and reserve a table here!
9. The Roof Garden
Just past The Peninsula Hotel’s rooftop pool and cabanas, is the inviting Roof Garden restaurant shaded by classic umbrellas. This spot is open early (try 7am!) and serves dishes with fresh herbs straight from the hotel’s organic garden. The Mandarin chicken salad is oh-so refreshing yet filling, and we highly recommend it. Seating is limited to follow COVID-19 precautions, so do not hesitate to book a reservation here.

10. The Farm of Beverly Hills
This local favorite is known for breakfast classics that are done right. The great attention to detail given to each dish sets them apart from other brunch spots in Los Angeles. The huevos rancheros are spot-on every time and the Aperol Spritz tastes just like the one found in the Cinque Terre. The Farm is always busy on the weekends, so do not forget to make a reservation here!
