Have a great night, sleep in, brunch, repeat. That’s the kind of schedule we love to keep in Conejo Valley. When you stay here, you’ll find that relaxed is how we roll. Life runs a little slower here than the fast LA pace and we’re always up for a pause. Go on and gather your brunch buddies, line up your hotel rooms and then peruse our list below to pick the best spot for you.
For the ultimate meal, the people at Phil’s follow a simple recipe – loved ones, delicious food and exceptional service. That’s why this place is hands down one of our favorites. The food is as good as they say, but it’s the above-and-beyond service that keeps us coming back, especially for a relaxed, incredible brunch with people we love.
Our Menu Item Pick: Try the Grand Marnier Challah French Toast – it’s as decadent and delicious as it sounds. See the full brunch menu here.
Intimate, yet cheerful, this is a great spot for some quality time with the family. They specialize in refined comfort food and put lots of love into every dish like mom did. Browse your way through their amazing omelets, waffles, egg dishes and breakfast pizzas.
Our Menu Item Pick: Their most popular brunch dish is their Boar Dough Beignets dusted in cinnamon sugar and served with their Nutella sauce. See the full brunch menu here.
If you’d like to see waffles turned into an art form, then this is your place. They are wild about breakfast treats and it shows. Picture locally-sourced natural and organic ingredients with waffles made from brioche bread and a menu that changes seasonally, then you’ve got an idea of the brunch heaven that awaits.
Our Menu Item Pick: We know when you think waffles, your mind automatically goes to sweet – but the Waffle Experience has amazing savory options like their “Praise the Lard” which features house braised pork belly, a cage free egg, arugula, roasted tomato, ricotta, cracked pepper agave syrup and a lardon studded herb waffle. See the full brunch menu here.
If your brunch besties walk on the vegan or health-conscious side, then this is where you want to take them. They have traditional options too so not everyone has to commit to healthy. Feel free to chow down on crepes, pumpkin pancakes, Flaky French Toast, Lemon Pistachio Cream French Toast, egg dishes and more.
Our Menu Item Pick: The “Viva Las Vegan” omelet features tofu, wild rice, black beans, zucchini, corn, mushrooms, red and yellow bell peppers, onions and garlic-chili sauce. See the full brunch menu here.
For those busy couples who’ve been missing some good ‘ol home cooking, this place will hit the spot. Somehow, they’ve taken the restaurant feel out of eating out. It’s a relaxed space that lets you feel right at home with a menu that will spoil you. It’s about time you took the morning off anyway.
Our Menu Item Pick: Play it simple, yet delicious, with their “Harvest Special” omelet – Bacon, potato, sour cream & green onion topped with cheddar cheese. See the full brunch menu here.
It’s easy to get swept away in this dreamy and innovative menu from The Nook. They specialize in pancakes, crepes, waffles and toast of every flavor and fun name including dishes like “The Nookie Cookie” all the way to “The Diablo.” The menu is worth both a read and a visit.
Our Menu Item Pick: The Green Machine features unique green tea pancakes topped with green tea mascarpone sauce and whipped cream. See the full brunch menu here.
