Adams Morgan Brunch DC

Our Favorite Brunch Spot

Federal Hill is a hot spot for the Baltimore brunch scene. There are many restaurants in the neighborhood with a great brunch menu and atmosphere. Metropolitan is our favorite restaurant for brunch in Federal Hill. Metropolitan is located on S. Charles Street, a popular area for restaurants. Brunch takes place on Saturday and Sunday from 8:00AM – 2:00PM. They have a delicious and extensive menu with options for everyone. The menu consists of breakfast platters, egg dishes, and sandwiches, pancakes and waffles, as well as breakfast grains. We love pretty much everything on the menu, but the Breakfast Pizza and the Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict are two of our favorites. The drink menu is just as delectable. The typical brunch drinks are available as well as specialty brunch cocktails.

Our Favorite Happy Hour Spot

Banditos Bar and Kitchen is a Federal Hill favorite – they combine the best of Mexi-Cali and Maryland, creating a unique menu and environment. Banditos happy hour is incredible – Monday through Thursday from 11:00AM – 7:00PM, and Friday from 11:00AM – 10:00PM.
