The perfect sort of spot for a boozy birthday brunch. Same price for everyone, so splitting the bill is easy.
***5/1/15 UPDATE: Areal will now be offering #BottomlessMimosas during lunch DAILY! More details to come…***
Long ago, this spot was the home to World Cafe, and we celebrated V’s bday there for a very boozy brunch. We probably spent a good three hours consuming the glorious orange bubbly beverage, and as a result members of our party believed they could speak Japanese (they couldn’t; sounded racist), created fictitious personalities (Havannah Pete!), and got lost wandering home. So we were sad when the spot closed, even sadder when we learned its replacement AREAL wouldn’t be offering the same deal.
Long story short: we’re now very happy to announce AREAL has joined the bottomless booze-fest train.
Brunching Spot: AREAL, Santa Monica
Boozy Brunch Hours: Sundays, starting at 10:00am
Bottomless Mimosa Deal: $15 Bottomless Mimosas for 2-hours
Menu Highlights: Mimosas. And the Grilled Pomegranate Molasses Marinated Steak. Way heavier than our normal brunch choice but sweet and tangy red-meat sounds delicious right now.

Closed 2015. But check out Tacoteca which has moved in to the same building & offers BOTTOMLESS MIMOSAS!
Another SM spot to booze up brunch…
The Spot: The Charleston (Santa Monica)
Brunching Hours: Saturdays & Sundays, 10:30AM-3PM
Bottomless Deal: $15 bottomless mimosas
Menu Highlights: Our eyes always zero in on Chicken & Waffles whenever they’re on the menu, but we’re also feeling the Chocolate Brioche Bread Pudding French Toast. If you’re more of a savory bruncher, try the Chorizo Hash & Eggs or the Short Rib Tacos with Korean salsa – YUM.

Top Chefs + Unlimited Plates + Unlimited Bubbly?! LOVE.
The Spot: Border Grill (Santa Monica location only)
Brunching Hours: Saturdays & Sundays, 11:30am-3pm
Bottomless Deal: $6 Bottomless Mimosas
Menu Highlights: This is one amazing brunch deal, for just $29.99 you get your choice of UNLIMITED small plates to grub on, plus for $6 more booze yourself silly with bottomless bubbly. All the plates sounds delicious and since it’s unlimited, why not plant yourself at Border Grill for a few hours and sample them all? Pig out on: green corn tamales, plantain empanadas, huevos rancheros, breakfast enchiladas, chorizo and egg tacos, and much MUCH more. If this lunch doesn’t leave you drunk+fat, you’re just not doing something right.

Heads up Westsiders, there’s a new bottomless mimosa spot in town! Taking over Salute’s old spot is newcomer Brick + Mortar, and we just love when new restos roll out the bottomless mimosas from the get-go. In our eyes, brunch shouldn’t be handled any other way.
The Spot: Brick + Mortar (Santa Monica)
Brunching hours: Saturdays & Sundays starting @ 10am
Bottomless Deal: Bottomless Mimosas for $15, plus they’ve got a make-your-own Bloody Mary bar for $8 a pop
Menu highlights: Most of the regulars (brioche french toast, breakfast sammie) and some tasty additions (chile relleno with black beans, guajillo chili sauce, poached egg, tortillas)

2012 Update: World Cafe is no more. It is now operating as AReal Restaurant and unfortunately the new place isn’t offering bottomless mimosas (booooooo!)
Has this been the longest week ever or what?? TGIF!! Time for bottomless mimosa pick of the week! This week is another westside spot (I know, I know…), World Cafe.
World Cafe in Santa Monica has bottomless mimosa brunch every Saturday and Sunday from 10:30a-3:30p. With the purchase of an entree you can add on bottomless bubbly for just $8!
And their brunch menu is super affordable, pancake plate or build your own omelet for $8 and the breakfast burrito sounds amazing at $13. Along with breakfast picks they also have a full lunch menu available during brunch (salads, burgers, sandwhiches, pasta, pizza, meats and fish), there is something for everyone.
World Cafe is located right in the middle of Main St, so it is a great place to start for brunch and then embark on a pub crawl to nearby bars or partake in some boozy shopping.
