Brunch in Rockville

Does anyone know of a budget-friendly brunch spot in the Rockville area? The only place I could think of was the Silver Diner, and I would prefer to avoid that. Preferably somewhere with cocktails too!

Thank you!

  1. Austin Grill, in Rockville Town Center, has weekend brunch, and cocktails as well.

      Yeah, but the food has gone so far downhill at Austin Grill that the Silver Diner is probably a better choice, food-wise.

      Tower Oaks Lodge (Clyde's) does a decent brunch. And a full bar.

    2. The Marriott conference center on the rockville pike has an excellent brunch.

        Yes, the brunch at the Marriott is good. My friends also enjoy brunch at the Mosaic Cafe in Congressional Plaza. They do interesting things with waffles -- sweet & savory.

      2. I'd recommend the Lodge at Tower Oaks and also Mosaic Cafe. The Lodge is very pretty, has lots of food choices, and offers cocktails. Mosaic has very high-quality food and gracious service. Not sure about cocktails.

        I'd avoid Austin Grill at all times.

        1. Another vote for Clyde's. Solid menu, tons of seating, good atmosphere.

            A third vote for Clyde's. Had brunch there today (Eggs Chesapeake, yum!).

            You can go to, select Tower Oaks, and check out their brunch and lunch menus to get an idea of their offerings and prices.

            You'd probably want to make reservations -- the joint is always jumpin'.
