Past Brunches

September 18, 2021

dLeña

Mt Vernon

4.54

There's no filler on the bottomless food menu -- even sides like the grilled street corn are presented with care -- even if it may lean seafood-heavy for some.

September 11, 2021

Ophelia’s Fish House

Eastern Market, Capitol Hill

3.51

The perfect weather might be inflating our rating of their patio, but even if you're stuck inside, the fish-lined walls are a nice touch.

September 04, 2021

Madhatter

Dupont Circle

2.38

The classic OJ is light enough on the champagne to be part of a complete breakfast

August 21, 2021

ala

Dupont Circle

3.72

The vaunted "mimosa bar," replete with flavors like rose and lavender and accoutrements like berries and mint leaves, alone makes ala well-worth a visit.

July 17, 2021

Doi Moi

14th Street

3.49

Doi Moi puts an innovative spin on some traditional brunch items and you can always just order a big bowl of noodles if your heart desires.

July 10, 2021

El Chucho

Columbia Heights

3.71

The mimosa options are limited but distinctive (and, when combined with a burrito for less than $30, cheap) enough to merit a high score.

July 03, 2021

Floriana

Dupont Circle

3.55

It's not every day you can have gnocchi for brunch, and like any good Italian restaurant the bread is on-point

June 26, 2021

Tico

U Street, 14th Street

3.31

For how artful the interior is, the vibe is remarkably staid, and the formulaic feel isn't helped by the dedication to that 90-minute limit.

June 19, 2021

Station 4

Waterfront

3.68

All your traditional brunch offerings are here and they're eggscellent, but there's no way an a la carte crabcake eggs benedict should cost $25

June 05, 2021

District Kitchen

Woodley Park

4.37

With three flavors, including an innovative guava, you won't be bored, and at $35 for drinks and both an appetizer and a main course, you won't be bankrupt, either.

May 22, 2021

Takoda

Shaw, U Street

4.15

It's a DIY situation, which works well when the supplies are replenished as quickly as they are here

May 15, 2021

Canopy

The Wharf

4.08

A lack of variety is easily forgiven when mimosas are served a milk jug at a time -- per person

April 17, 2021

The Admiral

Dupont Circle

3.67

Despite the menu's proclamation that "it's a marathon, not a sprint," the number of 22-year-olds pounding Bud Lights seems to have convinced servers that most patrons see things differently.

April 10, 2021

Tonic at Quigley's

Foggy Bottom

2.67

The menu is nicely balanced between breakfast and lunch options, all of which are basically complimentary to the tremendous number of tater tots

March 20, 2021

Urban Roast

Penn Quarter, Chinatown

3.41

Don't be fooled by a slow start, our server picked up quickly on the need to bring two champagne bottles at a time

March 13, 2021

Mission

Dupont Circle

3.21

The array of brunch options are a great value, with Mexican twists on some brunch classics leaving no one hungry or dissatisfied.

January 30, 2021

Cuba Libre

Penn Quarter, Chinatown

3.77

For sitting at an outdoor table far from the entrance, we rarely faced the affront of an empty pitcher

January 23, 2021

Commissary

Logan Circle, 14th Street

3.36

The multiple menus are daunting at first, but worth sifting through for a smorgasbord of excellent breakfast fare.

December 12, 2020

Prost

Mt Vernon

3.69

Including steins of German beer in the bottomless package is a nice touch

October 24, 2020

Taberna del Alaberdero

Downtown

3.25

Our server handled a bee situation with aplomb and considerable bug spray

October 17, 2020

Ambar

Eastern Market, Capitol Hill

4.87

At a certain point, you'd be well-advised to stop trying to manage the chaos dish-by-dish and just let the Ambar Experience wash over you.

October 03, 2020

Shaw's Tavern

Shaw

2.85

Florida Avenue's good for a siren every half hour or so, which keeps you on your toes

August 22, 2020

801 Restaurant and Bar

Shaw, U Street

4.3

Top-tier brunch classics like steak and eggs and crab cake benedicts make this a solid, if unspectacular, locale.

July 25, 2020

Alta Strada

Mt Vernon

2.77

Alta Strada is the first restaurant to ever bring out bug spray for our table.

July 11, 2020

Ottoman Taverna

Mt Vernon

3.9

You won't come across a bad option on this all-you-can-eat menu, largely an exercise in how many different excellent ways one can enjoy beef and lamb.

February 29, 2020

La Boqueria

Penn Quarter, Chinatown

4.43

Don't expect a walk-in, or even a noon table, but the atmosphere and the challenge of an all-you-can-eat menu results in a pleasantly frenetic experience

February 15, 2020

Bar Charley

Dupont Circle

3.71

While the regular fare is unspectacular, if brunch-y, the basket of biscuits picks up the slack.

February 08, 2020

Sette Osteria (Dupont)

Dupont Circle

3.64

Poured with flourish, and for well beyond two hours.

January 11, 2020

Duke's Grocery

Foggy Bottom

4.28

Classic orange is what you’re getting, but at the champagne-to-OJ ratio and speed of service (you’re always on your first glass if it’s never empty!), you’d be a fool to want any variety.

August 31, 2019

Medium Rare

Cleveland Park

2.53

Including screwdrivers in the bottomless package is an innovation we can get behind

August 24, 2019

August 17, 2019

La Tomate

Dupont Circle

2.47

A full-service Italian restaurant, complete with aggressive baskets of free bread

July 27, 2019

Tyber Creek

Bloomingdale

4.3

The two-hour limit serves more as a warning for personal consumption than a restriction Tyber even pretends to adhere to.

July 13, 2019

The Fainting Goat

U Street

3.14

Our mimosa glasses were never empty, which will go a ways toward looking past a rather charm-free attitude.

June 15, 2019

HalfSmoke

U Street

2.13

There's no option that won't leave you feeling a little defeated, but what else are you at a sausage restaurant for, anyway?

May 18, 2019

Provision 14

U Street

3.74

$23 may seem like a steep price to pay for bottomless mimosas, but that's before you realize they're served in a French press.

April 20, 2019

Joselito Casa de Comidas

Eastern Market

2.81

Sangria's not only on offer, but served as wine over a giant, fruit-infused ice cube

March 30, 2019

Vinoteca

U Street

3.98

A table overlooking the intersection of U and 11th provides an unparalleled people-watching experience.

March 02, 2019

Ben's Next Door

U Street

2.23

Only the most basic orange option is on offer, and at a very unfavourable juice-to-champagne ratio, to boot.

January 05, 2019

SEI

Penn Quarter, Chinatown

2.33

The bottomless options feels tacked on as an afterthought

We're like the postmen. We brunch in rain, sleet, or snow
