Generally society frowns upon drinking in your pajamas at 11:00 a.m. on a weekday.   But that is exactly how we rang in 2014 at M Street Kitchen in Santa Monica.  Leah and I dragged ourselves from bed, donned our matching Little House on the Prairie nightgowns, and gathered a few friends for Mimosas and storytelling from the night before.  Brunchers went all out for M Street Kitchen’s annual pajama brunch.  We saw many a onesie (including Leah’s husband, Michael), while my man wore flannel pajama pants decorated with mooses (or is it moose, or meeese)?  Clearly, we were a sight to be seen. 


M Street is always packed for brunch - New Year’s Day brunch being no exception – and we can see why.  The restaurant itself is bright and airy with high ceilings.  There is a patio overlooking Main Street that is pup friendly!  The menu is large with a lot of breakfast and lunch options (although lunch items are only available after 11a.m.).   While a few of our friends ordered omelets, Leah and I, both went for burgers with fries.  That’s right, pure class all the way.   A few favorites of the table were their homemade English muffins, the crispy hash browns benedict, and their large, fluffy pancakes. 


All in all, it was a great way to start off 2014.  We hope all of you had a fantastic New Year and may 2014 be filled with lots of brunch (and mimosas)!
