I don’t normally post about my brunch excursions as I like to keep this blog wine-focused. Also, it often feels like brunch, and all of the activities that encompass it, is it’s own beast.
But it’s worth mentioning that I love brunch. A lot.
One of my favorite places to enjoy breakfast/lunch is Laurel Hardware. The patio is the epitome of the always slightly out-of-reach California-cool aesthetic and the food is yummy also.
My friend and I got a
glass carafe of the blood orange mimosas. Am I the only one who gets excited when I can have a juice besides orange in my mimosa?
Anyways, I also got a massive fried chicken sandwich but I didn’t snap a picture because I don’t wanna be judged. Just know that it too, was pretty good.
Fun fact: This place used to actually be a hardware store and there’s a bunch of small touches throughout the restaurant that pay homage to its previous life. In fact, the store front still looks like a hardware shop from 1956.
If you’re ever in the neighborhood, I would totally recommend this gem.
