For D.C. foodies looking to start the morning right with a tasty bite, we’ve asked local bloggers to help us find the best brunch spots in the area. From “elegant” to “boozy,” these brunch spots certainly run the gamut. With the expertise of Micky of What Micky Eats, B and J of Two DC, and Becca and Cori Sue of Bitches Who Brunch, we’ve gathered an eclectic list of D.C.’s top brunch spots. Bon appétit!

Ted’s Bulletin505 8th St SE

“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

Lavagna539 8th St SE

“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

Birch and Barley 1337 14th St NW

“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

Old Ebbitt Grill 675 15th St NW

“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

The Pig – 1320 14th St NW

“The pig products are delectable, the Southern-style cuisine unbelievably rich and comforting, and the vegetables fresh and local. Surprisingly, there’s something for everyone.” – Becca

El Centro D.F. 1819 14th St NW

“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
