It’s a three day weekend, which means you have the special opportunity to hit three different brunch spots this weekend. Some places are doing special menus, some places aren’t changing anything at all, but we can promise you that no matter what, they’re all going to be delicious. Whether you’re nursing a hangover or you’re a bright and peppy morning person (or both) we have a brunch for you.
Not enough pizza in your regular brunch menus? Check out All Purpose’s Capitol Riverfront location from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. for a Labor Day special that includes $19 bottomless Mimosas, Bellinis, and Aperol Spritzes. They’ll be introducing some new breakfast pies with toppings such as smoked salmon, ricotta, and capers as well as all their classics. You know as a child when you always wanted pizza for breakfast? This is like that, but better.
With locations at 14th street, Cathedral Heights, and in Reston, Barcelona Wine Bar promises a vast array of tapas and, of course, wines this Labor Day. If you’re tired of Mimosas and Bloody Marys stop by any of the three locations for a very classy brunch.
You thought Labor Day meant only three days of brunch? Well, you were wrong. The Bird, which sits at the corner of 11th and O, is turning the three day weekend into a four-day brunch extravaganza. This Bird Brunch Bash will include $15 bottomless Bloody Marys and Mimosas, crumbly buttermilk biscuits, gluten-free breakfast tacos, and much more.

Brunch and Boundary Stone will definitely fill you up and keep you eating until you really can’t take another bite.
This old standby serves breakfast every Monday through Friday until 11 a.m., so if you’re looking for something a little on the simple side and you’re an early rise, you just might be in luck. Grab one of their big old coffees, sit down and relax. It’s a great spot for lounging. -K.D.
