Adams Morgan Brunch DC

Our Favorite Brunch Spot

There is no doubt that Harbor East has caught on to the brunch trend. The restaurant selection in the neighborhood is plentiful, but Cava Mezze is our go-to when it comes to brunch. Cava Mezze serves modern Mediterranean dishes, shared plates, and a wide variety of beer, wine, and specialty cocktails. Saturday brunch takes place from 10:00am to 3:30pm, and Sunday brunch takes place from 10:00am to 4:00pm. All You Can Eat Brunch is just $35 with 25¢ mimosas, however, your entire party must order this for it to be available. Cava’s brunch menu offers some of the classics eggs benedict, French toast, steak & eggs, and home fries. The classics, with a Mediterranean twist, are what we love about the menu spicy lamb benedict, gyro hash brown, and the village frittata are a few of our favorites.


Adams Morgan Happy Hour DC

Our Favorite Happy Hour Spot

Bar Vasquez is a restaurant and lounge with influence from Buenos Aires and Argentina. With two stories, you will find two different experiences there is a formal dining area upstairs, or a more laid-back bar and lounge area downstairs. Live music from local musicians creates a fun energy, making it the perfect happy hour spot in Harbor East. Happy Hour takes place in the bar and lounge from 5:00pm to 7:00pm, Monday through Friday. The Happy Hour menu varies on a monthly basis. Each month, a specialty cocktail is featured for $5, as well as a selection of $5 wines and $5 snacks. Between the great deals and the perfect happy hour ambiance, we can’t get enough of Bar Vasquez.

Apartment living is extremely prominent in Harbor East there are several luxury apartment buildings scattered throughout the neighborhood. Both high rise apartment buildings and loft-style apartment buildings are available in the area, all of which offer a variety of floor plans, amenities, and city or waterfront views. We love The Promenade and Spinnaker Bay for the variety of amenities offered, and their close proximity to all that Harbor East has to offer. Because of its close proximity to downtown Baltimore, apartments are the most popular and convenient way to live in Harbor East.
