    I like the Tabard Inn in DC. I don't know Annapolis.

      There are tons of threads on this topic. But some of my favorite brunches in DC are: Tabard Inn, Masa14, Bistro Bis, and Acadiana.

        Service at Masa 14 is very spotty but I absolutely adore their brunch. Also Darlington House.

          I had great service when I was at brunch at Masa 14. Plus the waiter didn't give us any attitude about basically camping out for 2+ hours....and he was cute :)

        In Annapolis I like Chart House, Carrol's Creek or Rockfish for brunch.

          Carrol's Creek is great! We didn't go for brunch, but dinner. We really enjoyed it though.

            I've done their brunch a number of times.

            Not a damned thing wrong with their spread.

            Had a business lunch there recently and was very unimpressed.

              There's a Living Social deal for Carrol's Creek today, good for dinner only:

              If not for this thread I would have never known about it! (My boyfriend lives near Annapolis and I'm just getting familiar with the restaurants out there.

            I think it depends on what kind of brunch you want. Do you a casual jeans or shorts American-ish brunch or do you want something more dressy? Do you have particular requests such as best brunch for waffles or best brunch for amazing seafood?

            Some brunches that I have enjoyed- Tabard Inn, Blue Duck Tavern, Acadiana. DC has tons of places that serve brunch and they run the full range from simple bistro cafe to linen tablecloths.

              In DC, we like the amazing brunch spread at the Georgetown Four Seasons (Seasons restaurant). It is pricey, but the variety and quality of food, plus the nonstop pours of sparkling wine (domestic) make it worthwhile. Particularly loved the seafood bar, the vegetable table with inventive and delicious vegetable combos, and the dessert table. There is something for everyone, including carving station, omelette bar, and much more.

                I agree, Four Seasons has the best sunday brunch. Each selection is a delight. It just cost a bit and takes a few trips to try out all the major selections.

                  Not sure who added the address, but the spectacular brunch is at Seasons restaurant at the Four Seasons hotel in Georgetown, not in Alexandria.

                  Good brunch options abound in Annapolis. In addition to the options others have already mentioned, I've enjoyed the brunch at Harry Browns (on State Circle) and at the Severn Inn (beautiful view but not in downtown Annapolis). I've also eaten from the brunch menu at Pussers Landing (City Dock area waterfront, in the Marriott) and found it tasty.

                  Incidentally, Chart House (waterfront), Carrolls Creek (waterfront), and Rockfish are all in Eastport -- to the east of the City Dock area.

                    great brunch places:
                    1. tabard inn
                    2. la fourchette -- not fancy, excellent fresh eggs from farms nearby, neighborhood bistro
                    3. leopold's kafe in georgetown -- too crowded often, but great pastries, coffee, eggs.

                      This past weekend we had a great brunch at The Severn Inn in Annapolis. The place was packed with party folks so I'd suggest a reservation. The oysters on the half shell were wonderful. The waffles light and fluffy. Lamb and Roost Beef were very good. Mimosa or Bloody Marrys unlimited, all for $30 and a nice view of the Navel Academy, Severn River, and Annapolis. Rest of the dishes were typical, not bad not over the top but the service was very good so I'd say the deal was fine.
