Do we really need to list the reasons why brunch is better than lunch? Or breakfast, for that matter? The word alone implies weekends, sleeping in, and catching up with friends — all while munching on pastries and sipping mimosas.
So, realistically, you're probably already on board the brunch train. But, if you're looking to venture beyond your neighborhood standby, we've compiled a monster list of some amazingly fun spots in D.C., Maryland, and Virginia that you need to try right now.
Want to daytime-party so hard that you forget all about your Western omelette? Got it covered. Want a fancy setting for a glam take on waffles? Done and done. No matter how you like your eggs — or waffles, or crepes, or Bloody Marys — there are plenty of places in our 'hood that'll become your new go-tos. So, bookmark this list now, and start counting down the days to the weekend.
