first time in LA, but only for 24 hours

relizabeth | Sep 21, 2007 01:14 PM

My husband and I will be in LA for 24 hours and are looking for suggestions for a lunch and a brunch, and maybe a delicious snack (a donut perhaps?). It is our first time in LA (unless you count my trip as a 2 year old when I picked a mushroom, ate some, and stuck up the rest up my nose).

This is sort of what we are looking for:

Saturday lunch somewhere between LAX and downtown LA (we are staying at the Omni)

Sunday brunch that is good for hangovers somewhere between downtown and roads that point north (We are driving to Carmel that afternoon, so something convenient to the 5 might be good) )

Sunday snack (donut?) north of brunch also on the 5?

We are poor, and are the kind of lax vegetarians that don't ask if the beans were cooked with pork or the soup with chicken stock. Places that are excellent people watching are a plus. maybe vietnamese or latin american?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
