Despite today’s return to chilly temps, in theory winter is over. Spring, you’ve made yourself known, but no need to be so shy. In fact, this weekend would be the perfect time for you to unpack for good and grant us a lovely weather weekend by which to enjoy Easter brunch.
I’ve written this brunch edition before – and that’s likely no coincidence as brunch and solid chocolate bunnies are two of my favorite things. In my opinion, if you’re looking to brunch on the Hill this Easter Sunday, you’re probably looking for something more low key than some of the other (more elaborate) brunches being offered around the city. And that’s the nice thing about Easter brunch on the Hill, you don’t necessarily need a set plan. So where to enjoy eggs benedict and still be close enough to CVS to purchase the last of their Cadbury Eggs (just me?) Read on.
If you’ve got kids in tow or just want something casual, try Ted’s Bulletin. A poptart while you wait for a table isn’t a bad option either. Speaking of poptarts, starting tomorrow through Sunday, Ted’s will be offering an “Easter basket inspired Peeptart” (a strawberry pop-tart with glaze covered with sprinkles and topped with a Peep) and a robin’s egg milkshake (a vanilla milkshake with Robin’s Egg malt candies topped with whipped cream and robin’s eggs.) As many a happy adult customer of Ted’s knows, they also offer Baileys Irish Cream for those wanting to add a little kick to their sweet treat.
Crossing over Pennsylvania Ave, you’ll find Montmarte where they don’t take brunch reservations but the food is worth the wait. On H Street, Smith Commons is just one of many places serving brunch, including the nearby Argonaut, a kid friendly and fun place to spend the afternoon.
If you’re looking for a more traditional brunch buffet, Art & Soul will have a special Easter brunch from 10a-3p priced at $55 per person ($25 per child 12 and under).
