Great breakfast in Capitol Hill area?

Staying at the Hyatt Capitol Hill and would like a yummy, inexpensive breakfast place nearby.
The restaurant at the hotel is expensive for eggs........

  1. Are you up for a hole in the wall? If so, Pete's:

    Although, come to think of it, Taqueria Nacional would be closer to your hotel and very good.

        Second Pete's. Also, if you're into dives, The Tune Inn does a nice divey breakfast. Try the scrapple...IF YOU DARE!

        Tune Inn
        331 Penn SE, Washington, DC

    2. Teaism at 8th and D NW would be a short walk and very reasonable

      There is also a lot of chain stuff (e.g. Au Bon Pain) in Union Station

      1. Ted's Bulletin on 8th St! Love it - get a pop tart

        1. Cafe Phillips has really good breakfast sandwiches, bagels and coffee. Everything is fresh and quickly served. Also, great sandwiches (including hand-carved roast beef, turkey and ham) during lunch.

          1. The Market Lunch at Eastern market is my Favorite - Crab Cakes with Eggs and a side of Scrapple!

              Agreed. You can't go wrong with Market Lunch's bluebuck pancakes or The Brick sandwich.
