If it weren't for the lure of avocado toast, poached eggs, and freshly brewed coffee, we here at Hunker headquarters would probably never get out of bed on Sunday. Given that our favorite Los Angeles brunch spots frequently boast lines around the block, clearly, we aren't the only ones. But you don't need to stand in an hours-long line at Sqirl to enjoy a leisurely weekend meal. (Though, for the record, their sorrel pesto rice bowl is well worth the wait).
Ahead, we're sharing all of the entertaining essentials you need to host a proper brunch at home. Here's what you should have on hand, from a linen tablecloth for setting a casual yet elevated table, to a pretty carafe ideal for serving premade mimosas, and a stoneware trivet for bringing a frittata straight from the oven to the table. Though you will need to leave your bed, changing out of your pajamas is optional. Scroll on to shop our picks, ahead.
