Weekly Brunch: The Tabard Inn

Every week, my best friend Ruth and I meet up for brunch. She goes to a university 20 minutes away from mine, and we know eachother from high school. We are obsessed with brunch food, and always find good places to go to- but this week we stuck with a usual, the Tabard Inn.

The Tabard Inn is a cozy hotel in Dupont Circle with a restaurant in the back. I love going here for brunch- but be warned that you should make a reservation at least a week in advance. This restaurant is packed all the time! They have the most delicious complimentary bread baskets (these baskets alone make the trip worth it). They are filled with homemade mini muffins (today ours were blueberry and carrot raisin), lemon scones, savory cheese bread with peppers, and raisin walnut bread.

Tabard Inn has famous freshly fried donuts for $1.50 each, so Ruth and I decided to try them out. (We justified buying the donuts because they were the restaurant's specialty and all!) The donuts come with freshly whipped cream and berries, and melt in your mouth.

4000 calories later, our entrees came. I decided to get the Eggs Benedict and Ruth got the Huevos Rancheros. Their menu changes every week- but this week it included a mushroom, scallion, and brie omelette, sweet potato pecan french toast, and toasted coconut waffles with a pineapple mango compote. Yum! I decided to stick with a classic, but hopefully that french toast will be served in the future because it sounds delicious.
