Hawk 'n' Dove Review



We'd like to have been able to provide a more thorough review here, but as even the steadiest imbibers among us only received a refill or two, we don't have much to go on. Oh, and more than one mimosa flavor would've been nice, even at a relatively modest $22.



The brunch selection seems like a bit of an afterthought — literally a short laminated insert to the main menu — and you're best off sticking with the burger and sandwich selections, since they at least rise to the level of "fine," if decidedly un-brunchy. Avoid anything with eggs unless you want the shells, too.



Returning to the theme of Hawk 'n' Dove not really being a brunch spot, we didn't get to place even our drink orders until after 12:30, and glass-by-glass refills left us at the mercy of our waiter's attention after that, which made it particularly unfortunate that he forgot about us for long stretches at a time.



Given our placement at an awkwardly high and long table directly in the middle of the dining area, we're still at a loss for how we were quite so ignored. The rest of the interior's at least interesting — the Iran-Contra political cartoons festooning the restrooms are a deep cut, as far as kitschy DC adornments go — but it all comes together as something far better suited for a happy hour beer or two.

Dolce Vita Review

14th Street


A varied selection of a few omelettes, benedicts, and sandwiches each extend the offerings beyond the usual brunch menu size, and Dolce's even a worthy entrant into the #pizzabrunch discussion.

Via Sophia Review

Via Sophia



A $15 bottomless mimosa charge will always win over our hearts (we are nothing if not on brand), but bringing over elegant individual carafes is a guaranteed swoon.

We're like the postmen. We brunch in rain, sleet, or snow
