L.A. is one of those towns that everyone loves to brunch. In the City of Angels, there is no shortage of citizens without the 9-5 grind and time to meet up with amigos at 11 a.m. or even 1 p.m. for some lengthy noshing and chit chatting. There are a number of good brunch picks for those in the Los Angeles area. One spot that you will be sure to find a swarm of hipsters and eye candy wanna be actors/models lining the streets for the next available table is Toast on West 3rd Street.
Affordable prices, something for everyone on the menu, and those cream cheese lathered red velvet cupcakes are some of the enticements that bring the throngs to this friendly neighborhood restaurant. Oh yeah, and the celebrity sightings for the out of towners is always an exciting thrill (for them). One time as I was walking in, Ms Paris Hilton was walking out and the flashes from the paparazzi nearly blinded me. To me it was just another day in L.A., but for my girlfriend who was visiting from out of town, it was a live in the flesh Us Weekly moment. Like it or not, Toast is a fun, casual cafe that offers great people watching, quick tasty food, and an ultimate L.A. brunch experience.

love toast and their cupcakes. the red velvet cake is also good
i luv toast!!!
You are torturing me, woman! See you tomorrow night. Whoopee!!!
You mean there’s a red velvet cupcake in town I haven’t tried… oh yummy.
Great blog you got going! Love the design. Which do you like more, Sprinkles or Crumbs?
Hi Joseph! So happy you like the design. Besides loving food & fashion, I am also quite the tech geek at heart & coded everything myself. As far as Sprinkles or Crumbs…hmmm..It really depends on my mood & which particular cupcake I am craving that day. 🙂 I do love Sprinkles Coconut Cupcake & Crumbs Unique Flavors like Strawberry & Boston Cream.
Toast scares me because there are Ferraris and Bentleys lined up at valet during weekend brunches. Seriously, take the Ferrari out? For brunch? Would rather do Little Next Door if I had to brunch in that hood.
Hi SinoSoul – U always make me smile :-). Yes, the showy cars can be a bit much, but that is what to expect in parts of L.A.. I do like the vibe of Little Next Door – anything that brings me a bit of France is always a plus. I myself don’t like waiting in the long lines for a table (at toast), but I do like going when there is no wait for a quick, casual cheap bite w/ a friend + a red velvet cupcake.
