Terrenea Sunday Brunch Review (LV's LA)



Exquisite food, first class service and 180 degree views of the pacific ocean and Catalina Island are the perfect recipe for an amazing Sunday Brunch. The ambiance at Terrenea is second to none and the crisp ocean breezes will relax and soothe you.

 With sunlight streaming into the Catalina Kitchen entryway, palm trees dancing in the periphery and ocean breezes all around. I knew it was going to be an amazing experience. This beautiful entryway is just the beginning...


And this gorgeous area overlooking the ocean, is where you enjoy an amazing brunch. There is also an indoor dining area, but with this view, who would want to stay indoors?

And the food! oh the food...



Breakfast favorites like Fluffy Belgian waffles, eggs made to order  inventive omelets and a wide array of delicious hot foods such as grilled chicken and salmon make for a well rounded experience.  The chilled seafood bar with oysers on the half shell, crab legs and fresh shrimp was a great complement to the fresh salad station made with local incgredients.   A bounty of fresh fruit included pineapple, strawberries, blackbereios, raspberry, honeydew and cantaloupe.

The artisan cheese selection had a great selection of familiar and unusual cheeses and the dessert choices made me want to have dessert first. There were so many delectable choices. The beet salad was amazing, as were the imported Kalamata olives. The breakfast potatoes, a melange of white russet, blue potatoes and sweet potatoes was outstanding!

Service was exceptional. Friendly staff, free flowing mimosas, Bellini's and as much freshly brewed coffee as I could stand. My Bellini glass was never empty thanks to the gracious host that took great care of me and my friend throughout brunch.



The view here and the vibe is spectacular 

 The best part of waking up, is coffee in your cup:-)

Freshly squeezed OJ

A nice sparkling Mimosa

Everything is better with bacon

Breakfast sausage

Freshly baked croissants. Buttery, flaky, delicious!

Who can resist a fresh glazed doughnut? certainly not me:-)
Blueberry Scones

 Lots of farm fresh fruit

 Fresh tomatoes! Lots of great veggie options if you are Vegan/Vegetarian
Beet Salad
Potato Melange of white, blue and sweet ptoatoes
