brunch at botanica, silverlake.
botanica restaurant took over an old liquor store in silverlake and is part restaurant, coffee counter, wine shop and market. they are super popular and busy for brunch. we make reservations but usually still have to wait, but the wait is a pleasant one since you can sip your coffee or tea and peruse the tasty goods.
i've really enjoyed our meals there. the menu is super seasonal and fresh, albeit a bit eclectic. all the dishes are colorful and served on the most beautiful plates and bowls (aka instagram-friendly). i found the turkish eggs to be particularly comforting; the cocktails (and mocktails) are lovely and refreshing, and the thick bacon slices are so, so good.
botanica is the perfect spot for a super lazy sunday brunch. one of these days, we also need to stop in for dinner!
