The greatest, and perhaps only, cruelty of brunch is choosing between the salty and the sweet. It's a false dichotomy at Fig in Santa Monica, California. Consider their bacon waffle, which features bacon in the batter, a scoop of ice cream and a sprinkling of caramelized bacon on top of everything.
The only cure for an irresponsible night out is an irresponsible breakfast. A good brunch, fueled by caffeine and alcohol, the savory and the sweet, blurs the line between hangover and day-drunk, and makes time stop, at least until 3 pm. Here are the most delicious, calorie-laden, and potentially heart-stopping brunches for a Sunday with nowhere better to be.
