How to Keep Brunching This Spring

Many of us are taking advantage of take out and delivery options from all our favorite restaurants for lunch, dinner, and happy hour. However, as spring approaches, I am starting to miss all the patio brunches that will now have to wait. But it turns out, many of our favorite place have not forgotten about brunch in DC while social distancing. Check out some of our favorite breakfast spots offering everything you need for brunch at home.

District Doughnuts

District Doughnuts is delivering doughnuts to get you through your workday or your weekend. Find flavors like chocolate pretzel, cherry blossom, funfetti, vanilla bean glaze, Nutella, and more. For the best selection, put in an order the day before for pick up or delivery around the DMV and parts of Northern Virginia. You can also find a limited menu on Postmates and UberEats.

Shaw’s Tavern

Order brunch favorites from Shaw’s Tavern on Saturday or Sunday from including 2 egg breakfast, shrimp and grits, veggie omelet, and more. Ask them about extras like mimosas to go!


Barrel in Eastern Market offers excellent drink specials plus food every day but on weekends you can find their popular brunch options for pick up or DoorDash delivery. Order from their limited but fabulous menu of a fried chicken sandwich on a brioche bun or biscuit, ham and cheese omelet, or cauliflower. With a food order, you can all add everything you need more mimosas and other brunch cocktails.<

Or look for entrees like granola bowls, chicken and waffles, a traditional American breakfast, and more. The Penn Quarter location is also offering take-out but they do not have a breakfast menu.
