What better way to spend a Sunday morning than brunching? I’ve heard from many about Bottega Louie in downtown LA, but never made my way there. With a Sunday off of work, I decided to venture up to La La Land to check it out. I’ve seen countless photos of the macaron-filled glass case (and not gonna lie, I came out with a few photos of my own) and this Sunday, I got to see it for myself. It was a busy Sunday morning/afternoon in the perfectly naturally-lit great hall-like of a restaurant. There was lots of hustle and bustle and fancy waiters in all white. I definitely felt very bourgeois for the hour but it was a great experience! The food and drinks a little overpriced, but nothing not expected of a popular eatery downtown. We were sat after a quick wait and a couple sips of our mimosas. I went in knowing I wanted brunch food whereas my friends opted for a pizza option. While we waited for our food to arrive, we couldn’t help but take photos, especially with the perfect lighting!
I usually don’t like hollandaise sauce, but it looked so good on everyone else’s tables that I just went with it anyway. It was so delicious! Poached eggs are my favorite and the hollandaise sauce was not overwhelming at all.
Of course after we finished up, I had to take a gander at the pretty desserts. So many options that I wanted to inhale, but definitely couldn’t.
