Venice Bakery

Hours:MONDAY6:00AM to 2:00PM
Perfect For:BrunchDining Solo

Similar to the "Creative Director" you matched with last week, Venice Bakery is also a multi-hyphenate. This bakery-restaurant-café hits the mark on everything from its hearty huevos rancheros to the large pan dulce selection that includes an exceptionally moist Salvadoran quesadilla. But the real reason we wander into this Culver City spot on Sunday mornings is for the *SUPER* Chilaquiles Divorciados (emphasis on SUPER feeling appropriate.) If you dread deciding between red or green chilaquiles, relax. Here, you get a 50/50 split of the two. The salsa verde packs a tart tomatillo bite, and the salsa roja comes with plenty tomato-y sweetness. These chilaquiles also come with modification options, like spice level, protein add-ons, and eggs in the style of your choosing. Yes, 9 a.m. is a perfectly acceptable time to scarf down a breaded chicken cutlet.
