EAT: BEST BRUNCH IN VENICE BEACH featured by top San Francisco foodie blogger Sylvie in the Sky

    Being a beach girl, Venice will always have a special place in my heart. If I could move back to Los Angeles tomorrow and live anywhere, you’d find me in a Spanish style home along the Venice Canals in a heartbeat. When visiting friends and family throughout the year, we choose to stay in Venice, and since we’re there often, I have my short but sweet list of favorites for food, coffee, shopping & more! And since Brunch is the most important meal of the week…I’ve rounded up a list of the best brunch in Venice Beach restaurants below.

      These look so scrumptious. I could use like all of them for my breakfast today, sounds greedy but for real I would eat all that and be happy.

      Oh wow! There are so many options on the list. It looks like I need to spend a week in Venice just to try out a different breakfast every morning. Of course, I will be going for the vegetarian option in each case.
