Interesting Sunday breakfast near the Zoo?

B'more hound staying Sat. night at the Marriott Wardman Park, near the Woodley/Zoo metro stop. Any suggestions for a good place for brunch or breakfast the following morning, walking distance from the hotel?

    Head up to Cleveland Park and grab brunch at Ardeo. The other option is Open City, right around the corner from your hotel. But that place becomes a mad house on the weekends, so going early (prior to 10am) is probably your best bet.

    If you are willing to walk a bit away from the zoo I would go to Bourbon or New Orleans Cafe on 18th St in Adams Morgan.

      i would suggest napoleon bistro in adams morgan or even cashion's eat place, a bit of a dc institution with a yummy brunch. i'm not a fan of open city. ardeo could be good though, i've never been.

        I totally forgot about Cashion's. Their french toast is delicious! Ardeo has a great brunch and I heard they are starting an all you can drink campagne special.

        I would skip Open City; it's very overrated. You can try out Deluxe, which has brunch and lunch options. Also, Cactus Catina has a pretty decent brunch and it's a slighty rowdy atmosphere, which might get you in the mood for the zoo.
