These delightful brunches are edible gifts that you can benefit from too. But be sure to make your reservations soon. Mother's Day is coming up quickly.
Susan Feniger's Hollywood restaurant is launching their international all-you-can-eat brunch this weekend. Their famous kaya toast will be available, as well as heaps of other dishes like Moroccan-spiced carrot cake muffins; Turkish spinach borek; tamales benedict; and chilaquiles.

WP24 Restaurant and Lounge: Get your pinkies up and enjoy an elevated “Tea at the Top” high above Downtown Los Angeles at Wolfgang Puck's stunning restaurant at the Ritz. There, you'll enjoy housemade pastries, innovative tea blends from Art of Tea, a child-friendly menu, and for mom, a small gift from The Ritz-Carlton, Spa Los Angeles.

They'll be serving a decadent brunch from 10 a.m.- 3 p.m. that ranges from the fancy, like the Saumon Fumé, a dish composed of Santa Barbara smoked salmon hard boiled Jidori egg, red onions, Kendal Farms crème fraîche & toasted English muffin ($18.50) to the down home, like the famous fried chicken and waffles.
Ray's and Stark Bar: Ray’s & Stark Bar is one of our favorite outdoor oases in L.A., and they're launching weekend brunches this Sunday.

Brunch goes from 11:30 a.m.- 3:00 p.m.
