What is your favorite brunch spot? Bonus points for places that take reservations
I hate waiting!
Depends on what you’re going for, but I like Rhodeside (between Rosslyn and Courthouse). They have a good Bloody Mary bar. They don’t take reservations, however. But, it doesn’t get hellapacked. A lot of friends like going to Dogwood in Falls Church. The brunches are very similar, which makes sense because they are owned by the same folks. As is Ragtime in Courthose and William Jeffrey’s on Columbia Pike. All have a very similar, relaxed vibe, and I’ve never been to any of these four for brunch and had to wait.
A lot of folks really like Liberty Tavern in Clarendon. It’s a bit crowded for my taste, but I believe they take reservations. Liberty Tavern is slightly on the pricier end.
My favorite brunch spot is Bus Boys & Poets in Shirlington. Their wait is not too bad, 10 minutes max. The times I have gone (on weekends) that is the max I have waited, and I do not mind, since I am pleased with their service, food and atmosphere.
Carlyle has a nice brunch. My favorite (some time ago before its decline) was Bistro Bistro. Even with no reservations, there are enough options in Shirlington that you should be covered.
Definitely William Jeffreys. Their unlimited waffle/omelette bar is amazing.
I second William Jeffrey’s Sunday omelette and waffle bar and will add Copperwood Tavern in Shirlington.
I too like BB&P brunch. It used to be my goto brunch spot for years.
I’ve moved on trying to find something in N. Arlington, but I just can’t find anything that makes me crave brunch like BB&Ps used to.
I’ve tried Fuego, Boulevard Woodgrill, and Uncle Julios. All of them were decent, but none of them had me thinking about a return performance. I’ve also tried Wilson Tavern. The food was pretty decent and they have a magnum bottle of champagne for $5 if you eat the brunch that is well worth a return trip. That’s the star of the brunch and definitely in the plans for another brunch day.
I tried Whitlows years ago and wasn’t impressed at all. The A-Town brunch was a big disappointment as well. The omelet bar barely had any toppings and no jalapenos! The other stuff on the buffet was mostly pasta and cheap sushi.
I’m interested in trying the Water and Wall brunch in Virginia Square. That looks very promising.
And, if I try another buffet, I would probably try out the new buffet at Hard Times in Clarendon for $10 and $4 mimosas and bloody marys.
