For most Angelenos, our dogs are just as much the baby as an actual baby, so it’s only natural that we want to spend holidays with them. Here are some great places to enjoy Easter Brunch this year that are also fido friendly.
Head to Everleigh on Sunset Blvd where you can enjoy yourself a Bubble & Squeak while your dog bubbles and squeaks all he wants on the outdoor patio. Made with corned brisket, cranberry potato & greens hash, and a sunny side egg it’s on the richer side, but fitting on Easter Sunday.
BLD on Beverly Blvd allows dogs on the patio and they have superb Brunch hours for early birds and night owls alike (8AM-3PM). You’ve never seen a more inventive egg menu and pre-pregnancy, I would be going with a Spanish Frittata made with chorizo, fingerling potatoes, roasted piquillo peppers, paprika, and manchego cheese. Currently, you will probably see me diving into a plate of a plate of Nutella Crepes or the Strawberry Cream Cheese French Toast.
Ray’s & Stark Bar
Located at the BP Grand Entrance of LACMA. Ray’s& Stark Bar is offering a special Easter Brunch menu, and before 11 AM the parking is on them. I highly suggest the Monte Cristo filled with bread pudding, ham, Emmentaler cheese, Grana Padano, melted leeks, and blackberry jam. A close second will have to be their French Toast made with Cinnamon Anglaise Terrine, Pecans, Cranberry Compote, and topped with Bourbon Whipped Cream. Dogs are free to sit on the patio, but not in the bar area.
The Waffle in Hollywood offers 17 kinds of waffles for you and a woofle for your dog. At only $3.95 for 3 dog friendly treats made with Parmesan, parsley, and whole wheat flour, this is a deal you usually have to beg for.
Black Cow Cafe
Possibly my favorite dog friendly brunch spot, the Black Cow Cafe in Montrose specializes in making you feel right at home. Case in point, they open at 9 AM but let people start sitting at 8:45 AM. So if you’re thinking of coming with your pooch try and arrive before they open as outdoor tables are sometimes hard to come by. As far as food goes go if you’re in the mood for something sweet, try what they have on special–doesn’t even matter what it is I promise it will be good. Savory lovers should try their entrees served in a skillet, with extra biscuits on the side.
Until the real baby comes, he’s got a seat at the table.
