This Weekend: 20 Saturday Brunches

[ 1 ] August 9, 2013 |

Most places serve Sunday brunch, but I often want to venture out for brunch on Saturday’s.  The problem is I usually have to spend about 15-30 minutes surfing the web to find something that is affordable and offered on Saturdays in the District, which is why I compiled this list.  This is honestly a personal list I made for myself but I wanted to share because I know there has to be somebody out there like me in the District who wants a quick referral list of where to go for Saturday brunch. Feel free to shoot over any suggestions you have either in the comments section or by emailing me at
