The local coffeehouse chain and its fancier American brasserie spinoff, Silver, offer all-day options. The casual eatery offers all the classics (pancakes, egg trays), while the breweries in Cathedral Heights and Bethesda serve brunch daily with dishes like Huevos Rancheros with roasted vegetables and banana split yogurt parfait. Good for those with dietary restrictions: Menus at both are labeled with icons for gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan, low-fat, and low-cholesterol dishes.

unconventional dinner
1207 Ninth Street, NW
Weekend brunch is a daily occurrence until 4:00 pm in Chef David Deshaies’ creative Shaw Dining Room. We’re fans of the bacon, cheddar, scallions, and s’eggsy sandwiches, as well as the cranberry-ginger or Caribbean-style shrimp and grits pancakes. Some of the items, like avocado toast or a smoked salmon bagel reimagined as an appetizer, linger through dinner.
