Breakfast & Brunch Trends In 2016


Ah, breakfast. It’s a great way to start the day and it presents a marriage of the sweet and savory to produce some drool-worthy dishes to kickstart your mornings. Breakfast and dessert team together for some delicious combos, as well as breakfast and lunch — known as everyone’s favorite meal: brunch! I thought since fall is on the horizon, it’s about time we take a look at some breakfast trends from this year.

That Yolk Porn, Tho


Where would Instagram be with out eggs and the oh-so-infamous yolk porn? It’s hard to get enough of this tasty breakfast staple that oozes flavor wherever it goes.

Acai Bowls


These superfood bowls are taking over with its bowls filled with everything you need to start your day. Being nutritious never tasted so good — even the Huffington Post called it “the world’s best healthy breakfast.”

Bacon — Just Bacon


Some places are skipping right to the good stuff and just offering straight-up bacon as a meal. Because life is short, so why waste time? Candied, spiced, or just cooked, bacon can be its own meal.
Suggested LA Eats: Pig Pen Delicacy (Candied Bacon), Grub (Crack Bacon), Charcoal BBQ Melrose (Bucket of Candied Bacon)

Cereal In Sweets


Fruity Pebbles aren’t just found floating in your milk. You can enjoy that cereal and many others in ice cream buns, boba drinks, pies, donuts, and more.

Avocado Toast


So simple, but irresistible. Whether it’s just avocado on toast or jazzed up, everyone loves this treat, which can be served in so many yummy and creative ways.
