Brunch on U Street?

Any recommendations for brunch in the U Street corridor? There will be a group of 4 of us.

  1. You know, there are so many great restaurants in that area now, but I stay true to Polly's for brunch.

      Blech! Stay away from the French toast at Polly's. Horrid.
      I would recommend Ulah for brunch.

        What can I say? I lived there before there was such thing as Saint Ex, and Polly's has pitchers of mimosas or bloody marys!

          Aw, I am a fan of Polly's for drinks and a chill place to hang out. I just haven't been impressed by the food there.

    2. Its all about Creme! :) But I would get there early since they don't take reservations (from what I can remember) and its popular.

      I also like the brunch at St. Ex. They usually have a nice quiche and they don't rush you out the door, so you can stay and enjoy your coffee/mimosas/bloody marys.

      1. Creme. Bloody Marys, good chicken & waffles, and shrimp and grits

        1. Vinoteca is now doing a $1 mimosa special. I haven't been there for brunch yet, but am thinking of trying it out now b/c of their special.

            Be prepared to wait 20 or even 25 minutes for champers cocktails at Vinoteca. The combination of a slow bar and inefficient service is beyond frustrating.
            Definetly a good deal, but the anticipation between rounds leaves alot to be desired!

          2. Has anyone tried brunch at Marvin? Looks pretty awesome:
