People in LA love their pets. They purposefully seek out pet-friendly apartments, enroll their dogs in doggie daycare, and they throw weddings and birthday parties for their pets. Dog parks are busy during the week and on the weekends, and it’s common to see people running, walking, and skating with their pets down Rodeo Drive.
As a pet-friendly city, it’s no surprise that there are plenty of great brunch spots that welcome four-legged friends. If you’re planning brunch with friends but don’t want to leave your pet at home, check out these places:
