Frederick Maryland is a Foodie Paradise. There are so many great restaurants to choose from, many non-chain establishments for a variety of tastes. With Easter coming up soon, I went in search of a good place for Easter Brunch. Several of these restaurants regularly serve Sunday brunch so some of these are not particularly “Easter Brunch”.
Note: MAKE RESERVATIONS!
Here is what I discovered:
- Dutch’s Daughter Restaurant. High on many lists, including the brunch. Dutch’s is know for their crab cakes and their seafood in general, including Maryland cream of crab soup, crab dip and a crab omelet. Other buffet options are carved prime rib, baked ham, blackened honey glazed salmon, Dutch’s chicken, vegetarian pasta, creamed chipped beef and biscuits, bacon and sausage. Brunch gets lots of stars on every count.
- Isabella’s. The Saturday and Sunday brunch has several creative types of “Benedicts”: classic, chorizo, sojouk, and cured salmon, and all of the other brunchy eggs too.
- Cafe Nola . Nola’s breakfast menu is one of the best, imo. They have great reviews for their brunch. Lox Benedict, Italian Benedict, and Vegan Scramble are unique to Nola.
- The Wine Kitchen. Our favorite restaurant. Karen: I love the Maryland Benedict. Chris: the Steak and Eggs. And…they have Hanger steak, something that has been hard to find lately.
- JoJo’s Restaurant & Tap House has a great brunch. The bar has happy hour prices all day Sunday. The Benedicts: Classic, Crab, and Southwest Steak. (Can you tell I have a thing for Benedict?)
- Brewer’s Alley. They have a Grand Easter Buffet, it’s appropriately named. The have Herb Crusted Leg of Lamb, Prime Rib and Spiral Ham, and a Cold Table and Hot Table. It’s a lot of food.
- Thatcher and Rye. Lobster Omelet. What more can you say? Sat-Sun 12:00 pm–3:00 pm. 240.332.3186
- Silver Diner serves a wonderful brunch every day. Amazing Omelets. Fresh and local.
- The Braddock Inn. Here’s the menu from their Facebook Page: *Reservations Required*
- Wilcom’s Inn has a “bottomless brunch” menu that’s extensive, and mimosas, bloody mary’s, and sangria. (One of my brother’s favorites) They have a gluten free menu.
- Monocacy Crossing. Well known for their Sunday Brunch. It’s not particularly an Easter brunch, but a good one, and large.
- The Comus Inn at Sugarloaf Mountain. An old favorite of many. I recommend the Chesapeake Eggs Benedict. yum! Payment is required at booking.
So, no one should have to cook on Easter if they don’t want to!
If I missed one of your favorites, let me know, I’ll add it.
Have a Blessed and Happy Easter!
