Fig Restaurant

The Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows is one of Santa Monica’s premier hotels, and its refined yet beachy style provides guests with the best of both worlds. Fig is a farm-to-table restaurant that features suspended plants and Parisian-style bistro tables in the main dining area. Some of the tables have a view of the swimming pool, and the tall glass windows allow you to feel connected to the outdoors even while dining inside. Some highlights on the breakfast menu include the spicy Fig’s eggs Benedict with jalapeño hollandaise as well as the fluffy lemon ricotta pancakes.

Located right in the heart of downtown Santa Monica, Cult serves up stellar coffee in a sleek setting. Between the dark green booths and the checkered floors, everything at Cult works together to create a serene environment where you can work or simply chat with friends over a classic cappuccino. When it comes to food, breakfast is served until 3 p.m., and some fan favorites include the breakfast sandwich served on a brioche roll and the French toast. You can’t come to Cult, however, without grabbing at least one pastry (pro tip: go for the herb and cheese danish).

Interstellar is a modern yet cozy joint that serves coffee by morning to wine by afternoon. By blending American fare with Korean influences, the menu at Interstellar caters to a variety of tastes and cravings. Breakfast is served from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. daily, featuring everything from chilaquiles to avocado toast.

Located in the heart of Venice, Great White is an Aussie-owned restaurant that sets the scene for a slow and stylish start to the day. The neutral color palette is modern and minimalistic, inviting you to come in for breakfast anytime between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m.. Though you can’t go wrong with the poached eggs on toast, the blue smoothie bowl offers a more refreshing take on brekkie, and it is made from blue algae (which is considered to be a brain-supporting superfood!).

There is no denying that Superba has taken LA by storm. However, the Venice location off of Lincoln Avenue is massive, and its bright and airy atmosphere with communal seating is sure to put a smile on your face. Superba is famous for its bread, and everything from the prosciutto and arugula to the cheesy egg toast is amazing. Need more protein? The omelet with Boursin cheese and chives is savory and satisfying. Also, be sure to enhance your breakfast with a side of grilled halloumi cheese.

Uncle Bill’s Pancake House

There is perhaps nothing more comforting than pancakes by the beach. Uncle Bill’s Pancake House is a local favorite that is home to some of the fluffiest pancakes in coastal LA. Having been a part of the Manhattan Beach community since 1961, Uncle Bill’s Pancake House is a breakfast staple that has a rich history and beachy charm. If you like to keep things classic, stick with the buttermilk pancakes. If you have a sweet tooth, however, the strawberry pancakes with whipped cream are decadent and delicious.

The interior is reminiscent of a vintage diner, and there are a few tables on the patio for those hoping to enjoy an ocean breeze with breakfast.

From the sleek wooden beams across the ceiling to the cozy and inviting booths, J Nichols Kitchen in Marina del Rey is a stylish spot that serves quality cuisine all day. This modern restaurant is known for making pretty much everything from scratch, but when it comes to breakfast, you can’t miss the one-of-a-kind omelets.
