WASHINGTON — Having kids changes your life in many ways — but it doesn’t have to change your brunch plans.
Sure, you may not be able to sleep in and follow your leisurely morning with hours of eating and drinking, but there’s no reason to deprive yourself of eggs Benny and bloodys.
Red Tricycle parenting and travel writer Guiomar Ochoa shares some of her favorite family-friendly brunch spots in the D.C. area:
Located on New Hampshire Avenue near Dupont Circle is Firefly, an American-focused restaurant with options for vegans, vegetarians and the gluten-free.
When it comes to brunch for the kiddos, Firefly sticks to the classics. On the menu is a peanut butter and jelly with banana; cereal with milk; and eggs, bacon and toast.
The best part of the meal, though, is the activity that comes before the food.
“Every child gets a cookie to decorate. Instead of giving them a coloring book to play with, they get a cookie and things to decorate the cookie with. And then they bake it while you’re having brunch or dinner or lunch, and then they get the cookie as dessert,” Ochoa said.
