“Ted’s Bulletin is an American diner-style joint that serves classics such as burgers, fish and chips, milkshakes, and pies as well as breakfast staples all day. With its 1930s decor featuring lights from the old Philadelphia Convention Hall, wooden booths, old school house chairs, and a screen that plays black and white movies – Ted’s Bulletin is definitely a breath of fresh air and fun. The prices are super reasonable and menu is very kid friendly. Try the homemade pop tarts.” –Micky
“My kind of brunch — quality, not quantity. Everything from Lavagna is locally sourced, except for the tomatoes, because those come from Italy. The pasta, which we were too full to sample, is house-made. Everything is fresh and perfectly prepared.” –Cori Sue
“Their $30 Boozy Brunch gives you their out-of-this-world donut holes, two cocktails, choice of entrée and bottomless iced tea or coffee. It’s a fantastic deal for Birch and Barley’s high quality, delicious food. We’ll eat anything that pastry chef Tiffany MacIsaac makes, but her toffee-bacon donuts are a sure winner.” –B and J
“Washington, DC’s oldest, most historic saloon, was founded in 1856. Today the Victorian interior evokes DC saloons at the turn of the century. Boasting beautiful Victorian décor from antique furniture to classic paintings, this restaurant is a classic symbol of the city and has fed many presidents and politicians over the years. The breakfast menu features elegant takes on classics such as Greek yogurt with fruit and a Baked Apple French Toast.” –Micky
“This swanky Taqueria & Tequileria on 14th Street is the creation of internationally acclaimed Chef Richard Sandoval. Traditional culinary techniques are combined with fresh, high quality ingredients to create authentic Mexican comfort food. An ‘all you can eat & drink’ brunch is offered every Saturday & Sunday from 11 AM to 3 PM for only $35.” –Micky
