Who doesn’t love brunch?? There seems to be something about this specific time of the day or weekend. It’s more of an event than an actual meal. Maybe it’s because brunch reminds us that we don’t have to be at work by 8am or it might be having endless combinations of eggs and potatoes to choose from. Once you get that figured out, why not just order french toast or pancakes to split? That’s exactly what a friend and I did at WKNDR in Los Feliz, this past Friday. I love the Los Feliz and Silverlake neighborhoods because so many cafes and restaurants line their sidewalks with tables. This set up reminds me a bit of Paris and although it is incomparable to Paris, Silverlake has it’s own character and deserves it’s title as OG hipster. In my opinion, it has set the gentrification trend throughout small pockets of Los Angeles.
Back to WKNDR. It was a small little cafe, but so vibrant and colorful! They had a few tables inside, high bar stools at the coffee counter, and circular, turquoise tables that lined the front of the café’s sidewalk. I also loved the green tiles that paved the floor, and the fact that there was a walk up window to order with various pastries on display.
My friend ordered the Breakfast Sammy, which was interesting because it had homemade bacon marmalade. I had the Party in My Plants, which was a veggie burger except on thick, grilled bread. I think I would’ve preferred it as a burger since it came with a large round patty. We also split the Japanese Air Pancakes, which were topped with strawberries, dragon fruit, coconut and pistachios. It wasn’t as airy as I expected, but between the two dishes, I would choose the pancakes. I also had the taro milk tea, which was a bit too sweet for me, and the other recommendation was the Thai tea.
After brunch we walked next door to Skylight Books where we found tiny trinkets and books for our nieces and nephews. It was a nice way to spend a sunny Friday morning. 😊
Another cool thing I went to this week was a CB2 planting event in West Hollywood. We were provided with these beautiful white and gold laceur pots in which we planted aloe vera, then completed the look with sand and a crystal. 😉 It was a therapeutic evening and my friend and I even named our twinning plants. Since then, I’ve been trying to find the perfect sunny spot for it in my home!
Thats all for now! I hope you all had an amazing weekend full of Cinco De Mayo festivities!
