Brunch in Tyson's Area

  • a

I'd love to get recommendations for casual Sunday brunch in the Tyson's area. Is Cafe Deluxe still there? Is it any good? Not looking for anything elaborate, just a place where 4 old schoolmates can catch up. Thanks!

  1. Try Chef Geoff's Tyson's branch. Most people can list half dozen more interesting restaurants for dinner, but most people consider brunch at Geoff's a solid, if predictable, experience.

    1. Wildfire (in the Galleria) does a decent brunch. It's a chain, but so are many places in that area.

      Have fun!

      1. I like Wildfire, too. Cafe Deluxe is still very and very solid. I actually like it better than Chef Geoff's which just seems so expensive at brunch for what you get, but works too. Maple Ave restaurant in Vienna is great, I don't know if they do brunch, and it is small, but really nice. Not too far from Tyson's.

          Maple Ave definitely does brunch - very good - with bottomless mimosas and Bloody Marys (although I don't recommend the latter).

            I agree with Deluxe but it can get very crowded and noisy on a Sunday. Why not consider Clyde's at Tysons? Clyde's has a nice selection of lunch & brunch entrees, reasonable prices, a pleasant and spacious set of rooms for you and your mates to catch up and not feel pressed by a large crowd of patrons and their (loud) chit chat.

            Plus, on Sunday's past an engaging magician makes the rounds performing coin and card tricks for free entertainment.
