If breakfast is the most important meal of the day, then Washington, D.C., is a great place to be. While political strivers and decision-makers will gravitate towards hotels for power breakfasts, options for everyday people include no-frills diners like Murry & Paul’s, Lincoln Waffle Shop, and Steak-n-Egg. People with harder-to-please palates will gravitate to the high-level pastries from Ellē’s bakery in Mount Pleasant or the wood-fired bagel sandwiches filled with farmer’s market produce at Call Your Mother. More recently, the Takoma neighborhood has seen folks line up for the airy vegan doughnuts at Donut Run. Most options on this map are concentrated in D.C. proper, but a few iconic suburban breakfast joints are highlighted here as well.
