The Church Key

This meal is hosted.

Sunday Brunch at The Church Key in WeHo, Los Angeles

I first ate one of The Church Key’s brioche donuts at a food event almost 3 years ago, and the memory of “I need to go there” stuck. When they invited me in to try brunch, I asked if I could bring a meat/carb eater with me (Melanie Maras!) since Abe and I have too many dietary restrictions. The menu is full of items like dutch baby pancakes, chicken and waffles, and a wonderful-sounding toad-in-the-hole Croque Madame.

Chips and Guacamole

Abe ordered the Wet Breakfast Burrito. If you’re vegetarian, don’t make the same mistake he did. He asked for it without bacon – not realizing there’s also sausage in there.  Luckily it comes with an entire side of chips and guacamole, so he did not go hungry. We gave the leftovers to a very grateful man on the street.

I feel like almost every brunch I go to with Melanie, she orders an avocado toast. The Church Key’s version is the size of a small sailboat and has fennel, salmon, and mandarin oranges on top. Melanie asked for a fried egg on top. She also asked for a side order of crispy potato hash browns, some of the best ever.

I asked for their Brussels Sprouts Caesar Salad without croutons, and added chicken. It was the perfect gluten-free meal for a weekend brunch, but if I ordered it again I might ask for the dressing on the side. It’s super creamy.

Of course, we had to order the brioche donuts. I didn’t have any, but both Abe and Melanie were impressed. Brown butter glaze, cinnamon caramel, plus a little milkshake shooter for maximum sugar shock.

I’ve heard the servers come around with push carts (like dim sum) at night. I’ll have to come back for dinner!
