Breakfast around Dupont Circle

I'll be spending Friday night at a hotel near Dupont but don't want to go for a boring hotel breakfast.
Can anyone suggest a good breakfast place that is walkable from Dupont Circle?

  1. There not a ton in the area that just serve breakfast (mostly brunch). But a few places to check out are Dupont Grille, Kramerbooks or SoHo Coffee on P St.

      Definitely avoid all of these places for breakfast...not worth it. However, right on 21st and P there's a pretty good crepe place called crepes-a-go-go. There's also a bagel shop next door. If you do want a somewhat more traditional breakfast, Luna Grill (not cafe) and Teaism has some good options. There's also always Daily Grill.

        no way, avoid crepes-a-go-go, for some reason it takes them 20 minutes to make a damn crepe. They are also dry and lame.

    2. Tabard Inn serves breakfast. It's located (ironically) in a lovely old inn on N street. It's not far from most places near Dupont.

        I agree. The Tabard has excellent breakfasts choices for either Continental or American style. By far the best option mentioned so far.

          Forgot about Tabard...another good choice.

        2. Luna Grill and Diner is good not fancy or anything, but they have good eggs and stuff. Restaurant K on K st a short walk has good breakfast too.

            I was going to suggest these two. Luna (on Connecticut) is good price ($3.50 for eggs and toast, $1.00 extra for potatoes) and comfortable place. I'm not sure if anyone has mentioned Teaism?

            Maybe someone can tell you if your hotel does actually have a boring breakfast (since Tabard, for example, IS a hotel).

            1. Breakfast saturday?

              What about Teaism? Or Hudson? Or Busboys?
