  1. 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.

    2. 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.

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

      2. 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.
