Fun breakfast place in DC

Seems like many other cities have great places for creative, not-too-expensive breakfasts. Am I missing one in DC? Looking in downtown area,

  1. Yeah, can be difficult. But are you talking about a weekday breakfast, or a weekend brunch?

      This is for a business meeting on a weekday, but we both like good breakfasts and are trying to avoid a hotel.

    2. Check here, though all but Founding Farmers is very casual, might not be what you're looking for.

      I would recommend Pain Quotidien over in Georgetown OR in Dupont Circle on P and 20th. They have a fun bread basket and lots of tasty spreads/jams you can enjoy.

      Or, Luna Grill just south of Dupont Circle:

      1924 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, Washington, DC 20006

      1. OH, Just bite the bullet and go to Old Ebbit' Grill. Their eggs benedict is old-school, but still wonderful. The people watching is amazing, every time I am there I see famous political types. It's near the White House.

          GREAT lunch and dinner. I never though to visit for Breakfast.

        2. Teaism in Penn Quarter is quite nice, though not a traditional breakfast.

          1. For a business breakfast, I'd second Old Ebbitt. Do they still have the breakfast club?
