Soon after El Paseo owner Sammy Hagar brought in acclaimed local chef Todd Shoberg in mid-2017 to give the legendary Mill Valley restaurant a makeover of sorts, Shoberg started having visions of bringing brunch service to the spaces gorgeous, exposed brick-laden patio.

Now he’s making that happen, launching brunch service on Sunday from 11am-2:30pm.

“We are just so thrilled to finally, after 70 years, bring this space to life for Sunday brunch,” Shoberg says. “It’s pure magic, sitting on the patio on a warm sunny Sunday morning authentically takes you away to a special and unique place: from the food, curated cocktails and ambiance/aesthetic – brunch at El Paseo is beautiful and special!”

The brunch menu ranges from Nutella-stuffed donuts and avocado toast to Pozole & eggs and El Paseo’s burger with an “obligatory fried egg,” as well as cocktails and Bloody Marys. El Paseo’s brunch will be first come, first served, except on special holidays like the upcoming Mother’s Day on Sunday May 13, from 10am-3pm, when brunch reservations will be required. 

The 411: El Paseo is open for dinner from 5 to 9 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays; 5 to 10 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and is now open 11am-2:30 for brunch. BRUNCH MENURESERVATIONS & MORE INFO.
