I’m not even gonna try to pretend that my favorite thing about Lunetta is their large free parking lot in the back. Like, how many good brunch places in LA have this? Not many, let me tell you.
Lunetta actually comes in two parts: on one side, there’s Lunetta All Day, serving up breezy brunches and lunches with a sunny patio for al fresco dining. Lunetta At Night is a dining room and bar that serves up dinner and wine in the evenings. Both are well-loved by the local crowd, without being too high on the foodie destination list to make it a hassle.
The food is your classic seasonal New American California fare, some internationally-inspired dishes, something for everyone without being too basic. Whether you’re there All Day or just At Night, Lunetta is a reliably cute choice in the less annoying part of Santa Monica. WITH THEIR OWN FREE PARKING LOT, so what’s not to love?

Go here for: a cute casual outdoor brunch
Order this: anything in the breakfast section, or a nice lunch salad, and maybe a carafe of aperol spritz?
Amount of time to spend: 1-2 hours, typical leisurely meal time
When to come: I have a bias for All Day, so some time during daylight hours, maybe avoiding peak meal times on the weekends if you want to steer clear of any wait
Parking: they 👏🏼 have 👏🏼 a 👏🏼 free 👏🏼 parking 👏🏼 lot (it’s in the back and there’s usually ample parking)
