These top brunch spots are worth the small trek out to Arlington. With a culinary revolution occurring in this city, you won't want to miss out on these specials.

You may not know it, but some of the freshest and chicest restaurants are in downtown Arlington and offer a pretty great brunch!

The Green Pig Bistro

[gallery columns="2" ids="3657,3620"] I cannot stress enough what a cool place this is! This bistro reminds me of a restaurant in The Village in NYC. Brunch here runs on both Saturday and Sunday from 10:30 to 2:30 p.m. In the spirit of fall, you have to try an Apple Cider Mimosa, which is perfect for chilly mornings. With traditional brunch fare, there is one dish that stands out: the fried chicken on waffle with sausage gravy and onion jam is huge. This dish is so gigantic, you may not finish it, so it's best to bring a brunch buddy!

The Liberty Tavern, Clarendon

  [gallery columns="2" ids="3658,3621"] Did someone say "all you can eat"? For only $22.95 for adults (it's cheaper for kids!) you have access to an all-you-can-eat buffet. This deal is on weekends from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., which is perfect for early risers. There are brunch cocktails, seasonal dishes, and the classics: french toast, thick-cut bacon, quiches, and more. This is a really affordable deal in the DMV!

Palette 22

  [gallery columns="2" ids="3659,3623"] I had never heard of this spot before and decided to venture out -- and I'm so glad I did! The interior gives off a great welcoming vibe that's perfect for all meals! Palette 22's bottomless brunch costs $25 and then only $2.22 for your drinks. With tacos, breakfast pizzas, and classic Spanish dishes, this is a great place to expand your culinary palette.

Twisted Vines

Twisted Vines reminded me so much of the small wine cafes I ventured to in Paris for so many days. On Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., you can enjoy bottomless mimosas with sparking wine. Pair it with a crab frittata or an extravagant breakfast sandwich. Either way, you will not be disappointed by the food or the drinks!

Barley Mac

[caption id="attachment_3655" align="aligncenter" width="300"]brunch Image courtesy of Barley Mac's Facebook page[/caption] Stop in on a Saturday or Sunday to try these amazing plates and drinks. First, you can make your own mimosa or try one of the different flavored mimosas they already offer. Once you've got your drink, you have so many options for food! Between breakfast burgers, breakfast pizzas, and even different types of benedicts, you're just going to have to keep coming back so you can try them all. The wait staff here is absolutely amazing and helped me decide on a perfect main dish.


[gallery columns="2" ids="3656,3626"] Ragtime is an amazing, local favorite in Courthouse. Brunches on Sunday include a delicious waffle bar and spicy entrees like the Bayou Burrito, making this a great Cajun brunch spot, which can be hard to find! You can purchase carafes of mimosas, or enjoy a breakfast beer, to go with a bananas foster pancake stack! This an excellent restaurant to brings kids to as well.
