I don't know about you, but my favorite meal is always brunch. It is the only meal where it is completely acceptable to eat waffles and steak while drinking coffee and mimosas and I am all about that culinary freedom. Many don't know that there are delicious brunches in Loudoun! Here are just a few of my favorite spots and some recommended meals:
The World of Beer at One Loudoun serves "Beerunch" every Saturday and Sunday. It's appropriate that they call it "Beerunch" when they have dozens of beer on tap that rotates daily so you can always find new brews to try and there's always something from the LoCo Ale Trail! I highly recommend the Hangover Skillet which includes scrambled eggs, peppers, onion, candied bacon and more (as if you need more after I told you that candied bacon is in there). Pair it with a beermosa and brunch is served.
Lost Rhino Retreat is Lost Rhino Brewing Company's restaurant in Brambleton. Every weekend, Lost Rhino Retreat serves up a delicious Hangover Brunch. With options like breakfast tacos and brunchitos, it's hard to choose a favorite, but I always go for the banana pancakes with beer infused syrup. Can you tell that I'm kind of a beer girl? Wash those pancakes down with a Michelada, a kolsh and bloody mary mixer with a dash of Tabasco rimmed with Old Bay.
The oldest tavern in Virginia knows how to brunch with a three course brunch menu that features favorites like virginia peanut soup to start. Choose your favorite option for the main course, it will be a touch decision, with shrimp and grits, the middleburger or fried green tomato benedict. Of course, finish it off with cheesecake or southern pecan pie.
Burgers. Beer. Bourbon and Brunch, of course, B-Loudoun at One Loudoun serves up a Sunday Fun Day menu that will definitely make you have great start to a day in Loudoun, especially with Bottomless Bourbon Sours and a breakfast burger that features bacon, cheese, fried eggs, spice maple aioli on a croissant bun.
Make a reservation at Clyde's Willow Creek Farm for a delicious culinary adventure during your favorite brunch-y weekend. If you are craving more breakfast during your brunch, choose a Clyde's "bennie" from classic with Canadian bacon to the chesapeake make with jump lump crap cakes. If you're ready for lunch, the Pumpkin Ravioli features sherried onion sauce, toasted walnuts and dried cranberries.
While strolling through Downtown Leesburg on a weekend morning, hunger can take over. Luckily, there Shoe's Cup & Cork offering a delicious brunch menu. Many of Shoe's main plates feature local produce like the Local Omelet with organic egg whites, alfalfa sprouts, tomato and more!
Grab your friends, your biggest appetite and head over to enjoy Loudoun brunch!
