This Female-Duo Is Bringing Healthy Food to Sunday Brunch

Los Angeles has some exquisite news. Heather Sperling and Emily Fiffer’s online food magazine, Botanica Mag, has come alive as a new sustainable restaurant in Silverlake. Botanica Mag is an online culinary destination known for its recipes, how-tos, curated bookstore, cooking goods shop and even two travel guides for the food-obsessed nomad. 

Now, Heather Sperling and Emily Fiffer's editorial voices have been splashed into Botanica, the restaurant and market. Botanica’s veggie-focused, fresh food brunch proves one thing: food-empires are now run by women.

Come On In

While Botanica’s mission is to serve food that makes you feel good, the restaurant's attention to detail doesn't stop at the menu. Finding your table at Botanica is like stepping into a still life painting; the pastel and muted pink abstract walls painted by two Chicago artists define the whimsical ambiance. With the light, airy and bright accents, brunching has never felt so inviting.

The Menu

Botanica promises two things when it comes to its food: locally sourced, organic ingredients and zero refined or processed foods. While Botanica does not claim to be vegetarian, vegan or gluten-free, there are plenty of options; One dietary restriction does not fit all. Want gluten-free cake for breakfast? You got it. Ghee-Toasted Banana Buckwheat Poppysead Bread? As you wish.


Brunch Booze

No brunch is complete without a good cocktail or mimosa. Fresh fruits stand center stage at Botanica. Drink your tequila with beet juice or mix it with watermelon. Strawberries and bourbon? Yes, please. If alcohol isn't your Sunday morning thing, try Botanica’s Vanilla-Cardamom Latte with fresh cashew-date milk.

The Founders’ Promise

Aside from taking over your Sundays, founders Heather Sperling and Emily Fiffer want Botanica’s work culture to mirror their sustainable, local food efforts. Botanica's quality mission statement even continues outside the restaurant. The founders look to the community to teach homeless men and women culinary techniques. 

Eat a meal locally sourced while supporting two female founders that know a thing or two about quality, both on the plate and within the surrounding community.
