6 DC Brunch Patio Spots You Gotta Try This Summer



Let’s be real, it’s been a long, cold winter in DC and the thought of being able to eat a nice meal (and drink bottomless Mimosas) with friends in glorious warm weather is exciting.

DC is about as much a brunch town as there is anywhere because there’s nothing better than hitting up an awesome brunch spot with your friends after a long week of adulting.

Without further adieu, we have compiled six places that have outdoor patios as amazing as their brunch menus:

1. Vinoteca

Vinoteca’s selling point isn’t just their delicious Huevos Rancheros and Duck Confit Benedict, but the patio out front has great seats for people watching those passing by on U street, which is pretty entertaining when you are already hungover.

Brunch Hours: Saturday and Sunday, 11am – 3pm

#FrayLife Tip: Did we mention the back patio has bocce ball? This place is truly perfect to bring your squad for some good weekend vibes.

2. Boqueria

Boqueira is a Spanish restaurant that might arguably have the best bottomless tapas style brunch in DC with a totally underrated outdoor patio. Their entire brunch is not only bottomless for drinks but also bottomless for food too and can easily accommodate your big group of friends.

Brunch Hours:  Saturday and Sunday, 10am – 2:30pm

#FrayLife Tip: Located on the cusp of Dupont and Farragut corridors, keep the party going into the daytime hours with post-brunch activities at neighborhood favorite sports bars nearby like Public, Lucky Bar, and Buffalo Billiards, and even catch an afternoon and evening game!

3. Takoda

#FrayLife Tip: The outdoor patio is not only spacious, but also features a beautiful sculpture to set the mood and enjoy the fantastic food with your friends.

Not only is Dacha our favorite neighborhood beer garden, but its brunch is hosted on a comfy picnic table-style patio that we love. The garden is hovered over by a giant mural and the best part: its fur- friendly! So bring your squad and your dog friends and prepare to spend a day bonding in the fun ambiance.

Brunch Hours:  Saturday and Sunday, 11am – 4pm

#FrayLife Tip: We recommend looking at some of the #dogsofdacha hashtags on Instagram (tag your own pups and throw in #FrayLife and you could be featured on our feed).
