10 Spots for Vegan Mother’s Day Brunch in Los Angeles
It’s almost Mother’s Day–an important day to celebrate all the mothers in our lives. If you haven’t decided where you’re going to take your mom out to brunch this coming Sunday, you’re in luck, because we’ve compiled a list with some of the best vegan spots in the area that she’s sure to love!
With a name like Gracias Madre, is there a better place to go for Mother’s Day? Head there for brunch dishes like their Plantain French Toast and Chilaquiles–or entrees like their Flautas de Camote and Enchiladas con Mole Negro. And don’t forget to order a drink to go with it–their Mexican Mimosa or Madre Green Smoothie are great options.
Sage Vegan Bistro
Culver City, Pasadena, and Echo Park
Sage has a variety of brunch items to enjoy, from classics like pancakes (they’ve got three different kinds) and their All American Vegan, to Mexican dishes like their Breakfast Burrito, to exquisite entrees like their Polenta Frittata, to trendy items like their Acai Bowl or Avocado Toast–there’s something every mom will love.
Plant Food + Wine
Wine and dine with mom at Plant Food and Wine, where their menu includes a large organic and biodynamic wine list, along with a food menu of locally-sourced fare, including brunch items like their Bananas Foster Pancakes, Wild Mushroom Sandwich, and Smoked Tofu Florentine.
Enjoy breakfast foods like Lemon Poppyseed Pancakes, nostalgic foods like Grilled Cheese, and pastries like danishes, croissants, doughnuts, plus lots more when you take your mom to brunch at Little Pine. And not only is this restaurant 100% vegan, but all of its profits go to animal organizations.
Chicken & Waffles, French Onion Soup, Mike’s Shakshuka, and more are in store if you take your mom to Crossroads. Plus, this upscale eatery is also the first plant-based restaurant in town to have a full bar with an inspired cocktail program.
Long Beach and Costa Mesa
Get brunch at Seabirds for a taste of some more-unique dishes, including their Porque Maria–a sandwich of smoked sliced tofu, cashew “gruyere” cheese, and arugula on toasted sourdough, sprinkled with powdered sugar, and served with a side of fresh fruit. Or try their Purple Taquitos–3 purple corn tortillas filled with purple potatoes, and topped with chipotle sour cream, fermented curtido, almond feta, and cilantro.
Downtown LA and Culver City
If mom’s a sushi lover, go to Shojin for some of the best sushi around. Their menu features sushi rolls with names like Crunchy Tiger, Purple Treasure 3.1, and Yellow Magic Orchestra. They also have lots of appetizers, salads, soups, and even ramen too.
Real Food Daily
Pasadena and West Hollywood
Real Food Daily is another great option where there’s a good mix of options for every mom’s palate. Try their Breakfast Sandwich if you want something classic. Order a pizza if you’re in the mood for pizza. And if you’re feeling creative, build your own burger, spud, or basic bowl. Plus, sandwiches, plated entrees, salads, and soups are on the menu as well.
Do dishes like White Truffle Pizza, The All American Skillet, Buckwheat and Cornmeal Pancakes, or Super Sun Nachos sound appetizing? Then celebrate mom by heading to organic SunCafe for all that and more.
Flore Vegan Cuisine
If your mom prefers somewhere little more quaint and casual, then check out Flore. They serve lots of brunch entrees, from their Country Breakfast, which includes two silver dollar pancakes, potatoes, and a biscuit with mushroom gravy and a sausage patty, to lots of different pancakes, scrambles, breakfast burritos, sandwiches, salads, etc.
