Washingtonians loooove their brunch. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a people so obsessed with fasting through the morning in order to chow down at midday-well maybe Europeans, but since they don’t read this blog, they don’t count. Anyway, you get the idea, Washington D.C. is very much a brunch town on weekends.
Busboys and Poets is a landmark gathering place in D.C. which features a restaurant and bookstore. It has a relaxed coffee house feel (think “casual artsy fartsy”), but offers a full service menu that pulls out all the stops. The food is excellent for the money. Thoughtful vegan and vegetarian options are featured as well. But, since the focus of this post is on brunch, let me show you about some of the brunch goodies I’ve sampled. Behold…
So far, everything I’ve eaten at Busboys and Poets (brunch or otherwise) has been delicious. My only teensy weensy complaint is that the past few times, my server was was more hungover than I was which meant service was slow, inattentive, and pretty forgetful. I was able to look past the service aspect given how enjoyable the food and vibe were, but watch out for servers who don’t treat this gig like a real job.
