This past weekend, I had brunch at the same restaurant two days in a row! I've never before done that, but apparently, one day just wasn't enough. I had heard great things about Canelé from my friend Mari and finally tried it for brunch this weekend. I loved the low-key neighborhood vibe mixed with the French influence. It felt like a restaurant I'd find in Brooklyn with a comforting ease about it that I just loved. My favorites were the baked pancake with meyer lemon custard, the mixed berries {that cream was out of this world}, the house made ginger ale {not shown}, and the fried chicken sandwich {we loved it so much we had it times two}. A new weekly spot? So very likely! — Joy

  1. *Drool* One of my favorite restaurants! You gotta go for dinner and have the boeuf bourguignon, pissaladiere, and dandelion salad! And on your way out the door, they give you a canele made from vintage molds. That was one of the places I was going to recommend to you when I got to the French section of my restaurant recommendations. Ok, don’t forget–boeuf bourguinon! Have a great day!

  2. Thank you Joy for the LA restaurant suggestions. We’ve been checking out some of your spots and have loved them so far. 🙂
    Can’t wait to try this one out sometime.

  3. I’m totally drooling! It all looks amazing! You’re so lucky to have found a brunch spot you think you can go to weekly! We used to have one but it kind of lost it’s appeal, the food got blah, the service too so we’re on the hunt to find the perfect, reasonably priced weekly brunch spot! Aaah those baked pancakes!! I want one!!

  12. My husband and I are lucky enough to live 5 minutes from Canele and it’s our favorite weekend brunch spot. Their branzino is amazing, reminds me of being in European bistro

  13. I’m so glad you discovered this gem, it’s one of our neighborhood favorites! Definitely come back for dinner or one of thier “closed on monday” pop up chef events.
    And if you haven’t already check out Proof up the street a bit for some delicious treats and coffee — some say it rivals Intelligentsia, I say it’s an even tie of delish!
