Brunch on the weekends is how I relax. It helps me decompress and gives me time to slow things down. Overall, I am a mellow guy...but at about 11am, an angry monster comes out of me ready to devour anything and anyone in its path. My girlfriend can atest to this. It stinks. The breaking point is when I reach one of my favorite places to find a long wait ahead. UGHHH...that is the worst. I am wondering if anyone is willing to give up one of their "inside scoop" brunch places...which would include spots with smaller crowds, quick seating, offer you coffee (or anything free) while you wait, etc. Help contain the monster. My pick is Metro Diner in Culver City. There is hardly ever a wait and the food is really good.
