Places for large groups to eat breakfast near Union Station

Hi there,

I'm taking a group of around 60, mostly teens to DC in May. We're looking for a breakfast place near Union Station to eat on a Sunday. Does anyone have any suggestions. We'd be looking for inexpensive and informal with around a 9:00 dining time.

Thanks so much!

  1. Union Station itself has a large food court. For 60 teens, I'd stick with that.

      I'm guessing that the food court is not a good idea at 9:00 a.m. Sunday morning, but there is a McDs in the Station that might work. There also is an Au Bon Pain, Potbelly, Corner Bakery, and I think Sbarros in the Stations also offer breakfast.

        I'm pretty sure there is a Johnny Rocket's in the food court that would be open, as well.

      2. Thanks everyone. I am concerned the food court might not be open that early (the site has two different times for food service - 7:00am and 10:00am - for Sunday mornings. I might make a call there to confirm - the restaurants you've listed sound like what we'd need at that time of day!

          The restaurants I listed in my previous comment open no later than 9. Johnny Rocket opens at 11, I believe, as do some of the other restaurants in the Station.

        2. Skipper ~ I hope someone here can answer your question with real facts and not vague "maybe it will be open" replies, and I certainly can't, but I think there are very few participants here on this type of venue that will be able to help you with info for a large tour group.

          If I was approaching this, I might start with the D.C. tourism people, because they have endless experience in helping large groups navigate the ins and outs of Washington. http://washington.org/

          You may not be getting the absolute best food to be had in DC, but I can't think how that would work for 60 teenagers anyway.

          Good luck and I hope that your group has a fabulous trip!
