Brunchin’ Around the Neighborhood

One of the best things about living in the DC metro is all the great places to eat, especially for brunch! Brunch is a big thing in the DC area all year round and the list of great places keep expanding. Here are 5 favorites of residents of Parkside:

First Watch, Bowie Town Center

First Watch is a new daytime restaurant not far from home. Located in Bowie, Md, this location uses all fresh ingredients from farm to table. There’s complimentary Wi-Fi Internet access and newspapers and great food served in a beautiful rustic atmosphere. It’s called “First Watch”, taken from a nautical term that refers to the very first shift of the day. This restaurant is open daily from 7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. It’s a hit!

Miss Shirley’s, Annapolis, Md

Another not too far from home favorite is Miss Shirley’s, an award-winning location known for their Southern style menu. The restaurant was created as a tribute to an employee and personal friend named Miss Shirley. Considered an upscale-casual restaurant filled with lots of charm, this restaurant has amazing food. It’s just really good! Open for breakfast, lunch, and brunch all week long, the hours are Monday thru Friday, from 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Farmers & Distillers, Washington, DC

This restaurant is open every day of the week, but it specializes in its “Farmers Market Brunch Buffet”, a diverse spread of wonderful farm to table food. They use the freshest of ingredients, even in their drinks! This unique restaurant is worth a visit on any day, but especially for weekend brunch on Saturday or Sunday and most holiday Monday’s from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Station 4

Station 4 is not only close to Parkside, but a wonderful quaint place to eat! Located in South West DC, this modern American cuisine restaurant is a perfect brunch spot for a small or large party. The new South West development opened in 2011 and Station 4 was one of the first restaurants that opened with it. Along with bottomless mimosas, this Sunday and Saturday brunch spot is available on Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. They’re also open every day of the week for happy hour, lunch, and dinner.

Copper Canyon

Most likely the closest restaurant in proximity to Parkside Westphalia is Copper Canyon, a new restaurant in Prince Georges County’s Woodmore Town Centre. It’s a wonderful atmosphere filled with music and live jazz nightly, but they also have a brunch menu on Sundays from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. You get a complimentary drink with your brunch selection and they have great chicken and waffles!

There’s so much to do around the neighborhood, and everyone loves to eat so join the brunch crowd while having a great weekend!
