Sweet Maple — the breakfast and brunch spot best known for its “Millionaire’s Bacon” — will soon open at 1705 Ocean Ave. in Downtown Santa Monica at The Waverly Condos. This will be the Bay Area-based chain’s first SoCal location.
What Now Los Angeles reached out to Owner Hoyul Steven Choi for comment but did not receive immediate feedback.
Sweet Maple started in San Francisco’s Lower Pacific Heights neighborhood in 2010. Since then, the restaurant/coffee shop has perfected its approach, serving breakfast and brunch with a touch of Asian influence in carefully-curated digs that encourage coziness and comfort.
However, while the restaurants’ vibes are typically homey, their havens are usually purposefully commodious, as is the case with the incoming Santa Monica location.
In addition to its intimate extravagance, Sweet Maple offers an irresistible item called Millionaire’s Bacon: extra-thick, sweet, and spicy bacon that is slow-cooked for hours with brown sugar and spicy peppers [to achieve] chewy perfection.
Alongside their decadent, aromatic culinary creations, Sweet Maple also serves bottomless mimosas and bloody Marys.
