    for casual, the breakfast in north Old Town at Extra Perks is good, with a British flair http://www.extraperkscoffeeshopandcaf...
    for more upscale, try Majestic on King Street. Delicious.

      Fontaine Cafe and Creperie has yummy crepes and pastries, as well as other great choices. I love this place for breakfast/brunch. Seriously.

      For standard breakfast fare, and a local scene for sure, try Table Talk on Duke Street.

      If you want to venture over to Del Ray, Evening Star has a great brunch.

      Table Talk Restaurant
      1623 Duke St, Alexandria, VA 22314

        I second Fontaine Caffe - I think they have the best breakfast in old town. I also sometimes go to Le Pain Quotidien.

        A little north of Old Town, but I've enjoyed the breakfast at the Buzz Bakery.

          I agree with this if you're looking for good coffee and great pastries - plus it's a cute little place.
