We already love the Swiss for their fine chocolate and sleek watches, but thanks to entrepreneurs Raphael Monsch and Herbie Eigler, Los Angeles will praise them for the city’s first brunch delivery service.
BrunchButler, which originated in Switzerland in 2008, made its debut onto the Los Angeles dining scene last March as the first-of-its-kind upscale brunch delivery and catering service that will drop off gourmet meals at any location in the areas of Los Angeles, West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, Culver City and Marina Del Rey. Whether you’re just waking up in bed or trying to impress your date at the beach, the 24/7-service will cater to your emergency brunching needs at your convenience.
Brunch-lovers create and place their orders on BrunchButler.com, where they’ll have the option to customize packages from a two-, three-, or four-course prix fixe menu. Each BrunchButler box, which is designed to share between two or more people, is prepared fresh and served chilled. Its offerings include: grilled lamb skewers, a chocolate molten cake with Chantilly whipped cream, freshly squeezed juices and their signature classic Swiss Bircher muesli made with rolled oats, fresh fruit, local honey and European-style yogurt. You can also create a BreakfastBox of their favorite traditional breakfast items, such as homemade pastries with fresh bread sourced from LaBrea Bakery.
The service operates out of a kitchen in Culver City and has an estimated one-hour delivery time from when an order is placed.
Monsch’s inspiration to start the brunch delivery service stemmed from his experiences in event planning, in which he and his friends often went to brunch after wrapping an event. Monsch wanted the convenience of not having to travel to another location, and so BrunchButler was born. The service originated in his native Switzerland and now has seven franchises throughout the greater Zurich area.
“People in LA love brunch, [so] BrunchButler is the specialist when it comes to the whole brunch experience,” said Monsch. “We would like to take the brunch culture to a whole new level, where it becomes an experience for people who want to pamper themselves, have a meeting in a stylish way or a nice party at home.”
BrunchButler is constantly updating its variety of menus, including specialty brunch boxes for birthdays, Mother’s Day and other holidays.
