“This might be my new favorite brunch spot, and that’s saying something because brunch is one of my favorite meals of the day,” says mollyomormon. She’s talking about The Mercantile, a new Hollywood star.

First off, they have a fantastic bloody Mary, one of the best in town, says mollyomormon, “with just enough of a peppery kick and none of that sweetness that you get with commercial mixes.”

Gingersnap pancakes are served with vanilla-soaked prunes, mascarpone, and Marcona almonds. All mixed together, a perfect bite, says mollyomormon. Maple-glazed pork belly and southern eggs Benedict are “ridiculously good,” says mollyomormon. The Benedict involves tasso ham and crab ragout, mixed with Tabasco Hollandaise. There’s also a great selection of charcuterie, cheese, and pastries.
