There are plenty of reasons to love this contemporary Echo Park restaurant, but our number one is the fantastic brunch menu. Or maybe the outdoor patio. Or the cool hipster ambience. The menu features the kind of comfort food you can't really replicate at home, like grilled cheese with speck and comté, and yeast-risen buckwheat and semolina pancakes. Part coffee shop and bakery, Winsome serves third-wave coffee (so you can get that gibraltar you tried at Blue Bottle) and pastries like sweet or savory brioches and brown butter chocolate chip cookies.
