DC Brunch: Where to Go & What to Get

No need to wake up early for breakfast when on vacation in Washington, DC. Take your time, sleep in, and get the day started with brunch at one of these coveted spots around town.


Stoney’s brunch takes care of hungry and thirsty patrons from the get-go with an All You Can Eat and Drink special for $32.99. The best meal to wash down with your bottomless glass of mimosa is the “eye opener” pizza with ham, sausage, arugula, and sunny-side-up eggs on top.

This progressive American restaurant’s extensive brunch menu features ingredients such as duck eggs, beer braised sauerkraut, and goat’s milk ricotta. Their go-to dish is the strawberry-rhubarb French toast with a sweet and tart aroma and crunchy-candied walnuts.

Le Diplomate

Spanish restaurant Boqueria takes an Iberian approach to America’s favorite meal. The huevos benedictinos combine the two culinary traditions perfectly placing poached eggs and hollandaise over patatas bravas and a salad with a choice of serrano ham, piquillo peppers or smoked salmon.

M Street Bar and Grill

Last on the list, but always our first recommendation, St. Gregory Hotel’s in-house M Street Bar and Grill is known for one of the best brunches in DC. Enjoy some live jazz music on a Sunday morning or afternoon with unlimited mimosas and huevos ranchero benedict.
