AMARA KITCHEN IN HIGHLAND PARK, LOS ANGELES
My sister and I decided to grab a healthy brunch because we knew with July 4th, we’d be eating tons of junk food! We love coming here for amazingly delicious and healthy dishes. I love getting their bowls and pancakes. I’m a sucker for pancakes and I know that if I don’t stop myself, I’d eat the entire stack; butter, syrup, and all! I love their version which is paleo friendly and won’t make me feel as guilty after! Plus, the decor here is adorable!
WEXLER’S DELI in DOWNTOWN, LOS ANGELES and SANTA MONICA
I love love love everything bagels and any chance I get, I try to avoid them because I can’t lose control. I would eat a few in a sitting with cream cheese too! Anyways, we went to Grand Central Market on the weekend to grab some brunch and I allowed myself to splurge by getting the Big Poppa’s bagel sandwich from Wexler’s Deli. It has pastrami, cheese, and egg on a bagel of your choice. And my choice was an everything bagel, of course! If you love smoked salmon/lox, bagels, pastrami, or corned beef, this is the spot for you!
RECESS in HIGHLAND PARK, LOS ANGELES
Went to try this new spot out for dinner one night with the boyfriend. We loved the decor and thought the food was pretty good. I did really really like their dessert! It was a panna cotta with a coffee crunch ice cream on the side. I heard their brunch is delicious so I’ll probably go back to give that a try!
