Save to Foursquare

It’s Spring, Bitches! Those blissful few weeks between numbing cold and stifling heat when Washingtonians rush to fill every inch of outdoor space, soaking up the glorious weather. Our favorite part of spring is outdoor brunches, of course, enjoying a mimosa on one of Washington’s scenic patios or rooftops. We’ve culled together the best spots to do just that.

Blue Duck Tavern
There’s no doubt that Blue Duck Tavern is one of Washington’s favorite high-end dining establishments, but aside from the delectable cuisine, one of the main draws is the expansive patio that sits alongside the eatery. If you’re looking for a classic, chic and reliable brunch, Blue Duck Tavern is a must. Located as part of the Washington Hyatt they pride themselves on preparing fresh American fare that will impressive even the snobbiest of brunch goers. Read the review here.

Commissary
Commissary is a neighborhood favorite for those Logan Circle dwellers, and for good reason. They have an extensive brunch menu, and a bevy of eggs benedict options for those of us who make that our brunch dish of choice (I’m looking at you, Becca and Cori Sue). Besides the fact that they serve breakfast all day (well, until 4 p.m. at least), they also have a charming little patio where you can squeeze in your weekend brunch between errands.

Copperwood Tavern
Located in the heart of Shirlington Village, Copperwood Tavern has a prime patio for people-watching. The eatery’s black umbrellas will shade you while you dine on fresh farm-to-table fare with plenty of room to stretch your feet. We’ve brunched at Copperwood Tavern several times and never leave disappointed. The best part? Copperwood Tavern’s patio is pet friendly, so Fido can join you during your mid-day outing.

Lavagna
Lavagna’s rustic chic interior doesn’t stop at the front door, but continues to spill onto their petite patio. The wrought iron chairs and tables are complimented by red tufted cushions and bamboo colored umbrellas to shade you from the spring sun. The eatery consistently dishes up phenomenal food; pair that with a mimosa and a little sunshine and you’re made in the shade! Read the review here.

Le Diplomat
If you’re looking to take a break from the ordinary, Le Diplomat’s patio and French fare will have you feeling as though you’re dining at a Parisian bistro. The food is undeniably delicious and their patio gives almost any other eatery a run for their money. Nestled on the corner of the bustling 14th street corridor, the patio somehow maintains an intimate feel while housing tables upon tables of brunch goers. Read the review here.

Piola
Unbeknownst to many Washingtonians, Piola actually has a killer rooftop patio at their 14th Street location. You can don your favorite sunnies while sipping on the brunch cocktail of your choosing, all at your own leisure. With bottomless pizza and drink for $35, the view just got even better.

Teddy & The Bully Bar
Teddy & The Bully Bar marries two of our favorite brunching options: party brunches and patio brunches. You’ll be dancing in your seat while sipping infinite mimosas or Bloody Marys, all while being in the beautiful spring weather. For just $40 a person you can order as many brunch items as you want, and with the dishes being on the rather dainty side you’ll be taking full advantage of this deal. Read the review here.

Vinoteca
Vinoteca’s back patio is a true hidden gem in the District. While it doesn’t pride itself on being a party brunch, Becca determined that it in fact had all the makings of one. Pair the bocce ball court with high quality food and you’ve got all the ingredients for a Sunday Funday. Read the review here.

Zaytinya
The Mediterranean restaurant boasts a large patio filled with rustic wooden tables nestled underneath a large white canopy. There’s something about the patio at Zaitinya that gives off a whimsical vibe. Perhaps it’s the sun radiating through the canopy and settling on the wooden tables, or maybe it’s the heaters that are strategically littered throughout the patio to warm up diners on breezy days. Regardless, the patio is perfect for families, brunchers, and Bitches alike. Read the review here.
