DC Brunch Spots for 3 Types of Foodies

If DC excels at anything (sorry DC teams), it'd definitely be their brunch game. Truth be told that when it comes to brunching, they outshine New York and offer great deals including bottomless drinks and food. Although I'm currently living in Madrid (Madrid, take note), I've had my fair share of DC brunching and accumulated several midday weekend hotspots under my belt! Whether you're going for a more boozy brunch or looking for a fancy-chic setting, there's a brunch scene for every type of foodie out there- so stick around!

El Centro DF: 1819 14th St NW, Washington DC 20009// 1218 Wisconsin Ave NW, Washington DC 20007 
Why it’s recommended: This place offers an all you can eat AND drink Mexican brunch which consists of “Mexican eggs benedict,” and countless types of tortilla-based tapas. Best part of it all? The unlimited brunch menu includes their famous house margarita, squeezed with fresh lime juice and agave tequila. 

   What to get: Huevos rancheros, fried eggs divorciados, and the breakfast enchilada.

Le Diplomat: 160114th St NW Washington DC, 20009
Why it’s recommended: Stepping into the restaurant, you feel like you’ve been transported into a bouglaniose cafe at a small street corner in Paris. It’s classy window shutters, the wooden details, and the smell of cappuccinos in the making make the brunch scene here a completely different ambiance than their dinner
What to get: Eggs benedict and gruyere omelette.

Casa Luca: 1099 New York Ave, Washington DC 20001
Why it’s recommended: A new-ish restaurant in DC knocks it out of the ballpark when it comes to quality ingredients in a chic and stylish setting. With it’s Italian flair, Casa Luca prepares every dish and cocktail to perfection. 
What to getNorwegian smoked salmon on grilled country bread and the steak and eggs.

Ever tried out the brunch scene in DC? What's your favorite one? 


  1. I haven’t had the opportunity to try out brunch in DC, but I’m going in about a month and keeping this post handy! If there’s one thing I love it’s bunch! That salmon eggs benedict looks to die for! If you haven’t yet been, you have to try Carmentcitas in Madrid!! They have some of the best eggs benedict I’ve had, and I’ve tried a lot! They even have a sampler where you can get one toast with salmon, one with bacon and one with avocado! Yum yum! It’s the perfect sized portion to share with someone (although I’ve proudly finished it on my own many a time). They also have pitchers of mimosas! So jealous you’re in Madrid!! Can’t wait to read and reminisce!

    1. Hi Lauren! 've heared of that place before but now that you gave me all the deets I'm definitely going stop by! Pretty sure this is the place where they have 1 euro mimosas? Ahh so excited! Wish I got to meet you before you left...I feel like we would have bonded over our love for brunch hehe. Thanks so much for stopping by :)

  2. All of these look so delicious! I am partial to the Boozy foodie option though because of my tex-mex roots. I do loved smoked salmon for brunch though too...

    1. Yesss good choice! I think I'm deffinitely more of the boozy foodie type...especially when it involves unlimited margs! Thanks for stopping by :)
