January 3 – Before we left DC, we wanted to get a hearty breakfast so we wouldn’t have to stop for lunch.
We went to the Tupelo Honey Cafe. I usually do research beforehand and review the menu, but I went into this blind. It was also one of the only restaurants that were opened.
I liked that there were a lot of “GF” on the menu and that the choices weren’t just eggs and bacon.
I ordered the Super Southern Breakfast Bowl. It sounded delicious and I was ready to try something new.
After we ordered, the waitress brought out a homemade cheddar biscuit for Brandon and gluten free toast for me so I wouldn’t feel left out!
The toast was served with homemade blueberry jam. The waitress recommended adding honey as well.
The bread was very good, but it was a little dry. I really liked the blueberry jam.
Here’s the Super Southern Breakfast Bowl. It was amazing. It had grits, bacon, 2 eggs, black eyed peas and salsa. The eggs were cooked perfectly, and the bacon had a sweet and peppery crust. I want to lie to you and say I finished, but I didn’t. I wish I had the stomach to do it. If I didn’t get the complimentary toast, I would have!
Brandon ordered the Appalachian Bounty Scramble, which was a omelet with cheese, sausage, arugula and blueberries. It came with a kale slaw and toast. It would have been gluten free without the toast. He liked it a lot.
Overall, we had a great experience and it was an excellent end to our weekend trip in DC.
