Brunch in Tyson's Area

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.
