Enjoying Top Chef's Nyesha Arrington's take on Progressive Californian cuisine on Leona's patio, steps from the Venice pier, is the perfect way to start any weekend day.


One of our absolute favorite places to eat and enjoy the patio.  The food is simple but perfectly cooked and the back patio secluded but sunny, brick-covered, and fabulous. 

Bottomless mimosas, on an expansive patio near Third-Street promanade lends easily to finishing off your brunch with a bit of shopping.

In the heart of Main Street Santa Monica, Areal has one of the largest patios for brunching in LA.  Perfect for birthday parties or last minute brunches where a patio is a must.  

The patio at Sunny Spot was basically made to be Instagrammed. This patio has a hip, Caribbean feel, but make reservations because it fills up fast.

We are incredibly grateful for Cafe Gratitude!  Their vegan/vegetarian brunch fare is clean, fresh and delicious. Both locations (their sister is on Larchmont) have patios, a feel good vibe and amazing gluten free pancakes!  

Roi Choy's barn-like pancake refuge boasts a charming patio.  You'll be shielded from Washington Boulevard's traffic with greenery and a funky brunch soundtrack. 

One of our go-to brunch spots, Oscar's has a neighborhood feel where you can sip on a craft beer while chowing down on some Mexican-inspired brunch fare.

Chef Jason Neroni (of Catch & Release in Marina Del Rey) brings back the iconic Venice restaurant serving a menu highlighting Southern Californian cuisine. Expect long-lines, Venice hipsters, and delicious cocktails.

Hatchet Hall is a wood fire cookery with an emphasis on ingredients and old American techniques. It's patio has a New Orleans-y, garden party, vibe to enjoy some good ol' fashioned comfort food.

Somehow the light is always just right at Zinque Cafe in Venice. Grab a spot on their pretty patio (which typically is not too crowded), browse their extensive wine list, and savor one of their famous breakfast bowls. It never disappoints.

In the mood for some Southern-inspired California cuisine? Head to Willie Jane's (which is right of Abbott Kinney) back patio for some grits and bloodies.

Much like their West Hollywood location, The Little Door in Santa Monica has one of the most romantic, cozy patios around. Got lost in the ambiance while sipping mimosas and snacking on French cuisine.

Who doesn't want Italian brunch on a weekend!?  Enjoy their $15 endless Mimosas in this mid-city popular restaurant while drooling over their Poached Egg Bruschetta.   

Okay it's Culvery City and not actually Paris but it does have that patio sidewalk charm along with delicious food (lobster crepes!). We love their $17 bottomless champagne, bellinis or kir royals.  $18 gets you bottomless mimosas. 

This place really does have it all!  Explore this house-turned-restaurant, while sampling innovative Vietnamese cuisine on a patio overlooking bustling Third Street. 

One of the nicest patios in Beverly Hills!  Enjoy a leisurely Sunday brunch here, 10am -2pm and if you happen to have a furry friend (dog...) bring him or her with.


BLD has some outside seating (albiet not a huge area).  It's enough room to soak up our SoCal sun and even bring along your favorite pup to share your brunch snacks. 

Patio. Saturday brunch. Brunch with a view. Enjoy the people watching, the amazing cocktails and the incredible French food in the heart of Beverly Hills.  

Suzanne Goin is preparing you market-fresh brunch fare at this favorite brunch spot.  The enclosed patio is reminiscent of a beautiful Italian Villa.

What would you do with an old hardware store?  Make it into one of the best brunch spots in town, duh! Their patio feels like you're in someone's bungalow backyard garden, complete with mismatched chairs and tables (very industrial-vintage chic).  

This place is such a dream!  Everything from the aesthetics to the food just makes us swoon.  Sun illuminates the rustic secret gardenish space and, of course, the patio is our favorite spot.  Try one of their handcrafted cocktails.  

This is a great spot to walk your best four-legged friend to brunch.  Enjoy their crunchy french toast and vegetarian/vegan options.  We love that it's open early.  8am - 4pm. (7 days a week!)
