A Sweet Brunch at Tart

I had one of those marvelous weekends that you recall for days after the experiences, food, and fun times with an old friend have ended.

Sunday morning found my visiting best friend and me at Tart, a restaurant connected to the boutique hotel Farmer’s Daughter in LA. We arrived armed with a $25 Restaurant.com certificate, which I purchased over a year ago at 80% off for $2. If you’re familiar with Restaurant.com you’ll know that each certificate comes with restrictions. Most the $25 certificates require a minimum purchase of $35 and are valid on food only.

We dined like queens outdoors in the quintessential LA warmth. We began with the Seasonal Fruit Plate, $8.95, and a Buttery Croissant, $4.50 (neither pictured). Our main courses were the Brioche French Toast, $9.95, and the Meat Lover’s Skillet, $11.95, which we split.

For $10 a piece, tip included, we had a deliciously sweet and salty long brunch. If you’re in Los Angeles check out Tart after coffee and shopping at The Grove; it’s LA-fashion down-home cooking and décor complete with American fare, gingham napkins, cozy booths and strung patio lights. I will most definitely be returning.
