Brunch in Montgomery County

Is there a good place to go for Sunday brunch/breakfast in Montgomery County? Bethesda, Rockville, Gaithersbug, Germantown? Something a little nicer than Original Pancake House and the like.

  1. Montgomery County is a wasteland when it comes to brunch or even a good breakfast. Not to say that there aren't any options, but they're few and far between. For an upscale brunch experience, I recommend Black Market Bistro in Kensington. They don't take reservations, so keep that in mind. http://www.blackmarketrestaurant.com/. For a more casual experience, I think Mosaic Cafe on Halpine Road is good, especially if you like waffles. http://www.mosaiccuisine.com/

      Thanks! Those actually both sound really good!

        I second Black Market Bistro (I think they do take a few reservations-- I can't remember if you need to have 6 though).

        Cafe Deluxe is another possibility.

          Good choice. Black's is in Garrett Park, not Kensington.

        2. I often end up at La Madeleine on the Pike. Also Mon Ami Gabi in Bethesda. And IHOP. :) http://www.lamadeleine.com/

          1. Non-traditional, but nothing beats dim sum at New Fortune or A&J!

            Tower Oaks Lodge in Rockville does a pretty decent traditional brunch.

              Love A&J. Haven't tried New Fortune yet.

            2. I've always liked the brunch at Lia's in Chevy Chase.
