DC is a town that loves brunch. A lot of folks go for the boozy brunch where you can drink bottomless mimosas and bloody marys. My focus is on the food and I have a handful of favorites. You’ll notice most are in my ‘hood or within walking distance. When I don’t have to work, I like to leave the car at home and enjoy the city on foot. Enjoy!
Marvin’s brunch menu is concise but it has a number of yummy options. The chicken and waffle are one of my husband’s favorites. I like the huevos rancheros (homemade tortillas..nom nom) or the egg sandwich on a waffle bun. Yea..it’s as good as it sounds.
One thing I love about Pearl Dive’s brunch
is their insane homemade donuts. They change daily and they’re always delicious. I’m also partial to the scrambled eggs and cayenne grits. My husband’s favorite is the eggs benedict with the country ham.
Brunch at Le Diplomate
is fun. It’s crazy crowded but there’s nowhere better place to swill rosé and people watch. My favorite is the Niçoise salad (only available at brunch) which features a confit tuna. I could eat it every day. Another delicious choice is the daily quiche.
Brunch at the Diner
isn’t fancy. It’s loud and hectic. However, if you want a straightforward dish of scrambled eggs and toast, this is the place to go. They also have some of the best pancakes in town which is why I always go back.
