After a hard work week or late night of fun, break bread in one of L.A.’s herbivore-friendly establishments. Sunday is brunch day, as they say—but sometimes Saturday, too.

Beelman's



The Downtown L.A. neighborhood pub recently reopened with a plant-based menu. Snacks like Adobong Mani (toasted peanuts with garlic and chili) and Mr. Togarashi (crispy chickpeas tossed with shichimi togarashi) go well with the burgers, wraps and fries at night. Weekend brunch offers something different like Harissa Says It All (fried grits, seared tofu with togarashi, roasted potatoes, rainbow carrots, kale,house harissa) and the popular Breakfast Burrito made with Tater Tots, Soyrizo, smoked tofu, pinto beans, avocado lime salsa and gochujang crema in a flour tortilla.

Tempeh bacon, veggie sausage, garlicky greens and house-made kimchi make great add-ons to any dish Chef Jasmine Shimoda touches. Pro tip: get there early for fresh donuts!

You'll find the Ridiculous Baking Co. at the Hollywood Farmers' Market every Sunday from 8am -1pm, but get there early for the breakfast sandwich or vegan croissants—that’s right, they create melt-in-your-mouth vegan "ham and cheese" croissants, jelly donuts, cronuts, muffins and a bunch of gluten-free breads, well worth the price.

SunCafe Organic



Everything’s good at SunCafe (they were, after all, voted one of the Best Vegetarian Restaurants in L.A. by OpenTable), but the brunches are extra special. Savory lovers should try the filling All American Skillet (grilled potatoes, tofu egg & saffron garbanzo beans, zucchini, house-made American cheese, pico de gallo) or a Bagel and Schmear (with carrot “lox”) while those with a sweet tooth will be satisfied with the Belgian waffles and a cashew-based Mint Shamrock Shake. Outdoor seating makes this Studio City spot perfect for a weekend meet-up.
