In Los Angeles you have to drive everywhere, and when you arrive, your destination is usually paved with cold concrete. That’s exactly what makes the Coral Tree Cafe such a gem. At this charming Brentwood spot, you can park your car, enjoy a great meal with your sweetheart, and then take a pleasant walk among the gorgeous scenery. It’s about as romantic as brunch gets in LA. Pick a pleasant Sunday and surprise your honey with a table for two by the firepits on the outside patio. The ambiance is incredible, amid an upbeat crowd. Compliment your love with each bite of almond-crusted French toast, made with brioche bread dipped in delicious vanilla batter. Nibble on a healthy organic egg scramble with turkey chorizo as you make plans for your next getaway. Take your time sipping one of the specialty hot teas, a great companion to desserts like cinnamon bread pudding and chocolate pecan pie. San Vicente Boulevard is lined with beautiful trees called—you guessed it—coral trees. After your meal, take your partner by the hand. Stroll slowly along the shady boulevard and enjoy the green grass, colorful flowers, and the locals happily going about their day. It’s a brunch date, so you’ve got all week to get things done. With a satisfied stomach and your favorite person by your side, this is the perfect time to stop and smell the roses.
