Soleil Westwood

One of my favorite weekend brunch places in Los Angeles is a French-Canadian restaurant in Westwood called Soleil Westwood. Not only is Soleil Westwood a great choice for brunch with their abundant offerings of crêpes and omelettes, but their P’tit Soleil menu is great for tapas enthusiasts that includes beef bourguignon and escargot. 200 more words
