100 Brunches

If you read my About Page, you know that the idea of Brunch Belle began with a fun goal to eat brunch at 100 different restaurants in and around the Washington, DC metropolitan area. This page documents my journey towards that goal, while also serving as your guide to navigating the DC brunch scene.

Below you will find a listing (categorized by neighborhood) of all the DC area restaurants that I have brunched at. I am starting this blog at 42 restaurants. I will be updating this page as I try new brunches along this road to 100, as well as revisit restaurants that I have already tried. This page includes links to each restaurant’s website. You will be directed to their site by clicking on the restaurant’s name.

* An asterisk (*) next to a restaurant’s name signifies that it is BRUNCH BELLE APPROVED and highly recommendedFor these select restaurants I have included Brunch Belle’s Picks from their brunch menu. If you try any of my suggestions, be sure to let me know about your experience.
