Late-night Saturdays usually result in lingering in bed on Sundays. After that second pot of coffee, it might be time to think about getting food, and maybe another round of drinks. Bottomless mimosas and make-your-own bloody mary carts are popular, but what draws the crowds to these five brunch spots in Los Angeles are the full range of brunch offerings and menus.
