Best Weekend Brunch Spots for Kids in Washington DC, Maryland, and Northern Virginia

The best time that we have found for dining out with kids who still take naps is brunch. It’s that magical time where parents won’t be judged for having a cocktail before 10:30am (since it has orange juice in it) and kids are in a good mood because they get to consumer copious amount of carbs that have been sweetened with everything from blueberries to powdered sugar.


Weekend brunch in a win-win for families in the Washington DC metro area, but in having a child of our own, we realized that what is served at brunch for your little one is just as important as the fact that its available. We searched our own lists of restaurants with kids menus and spoke to some new places to prepare the below list of restaurants in DC, Northern Virginia, and Maryland that have kid priced and friendly brunch a la carte and buffet options on weekends.
