Where to Brunch: Bistrot du Coin

A few weeks ago I went to brunch at Bistrot du Coin. Up until then, it had been the scene for two first dates I had been on this past spring. Both dates had gone swimmingly...but I was somewhat skeptical about going for brunch. I remembered it seeming perfect for an evening dinner date, but for a brunch? Not so much.

But my friend promised it would be delicious, so off we went.

I was pleasantly surprised when we walked in. The atmosphere is extremely European. In a good way. Both for mussels and wine on a first date, and weekend brunch with a good friend.

When I entered the restaurant, situated north of Dupont Circle on Connecticut Avenue, I instantly felt as if I was walking into a bistro in Paris. Everything from the tables to the wall decor to the servers.

The brunch menu had a variety of omelettes to order, as well as other brunch staples, such as eggs benedict and waffles. We each ordered different omelettes. Both were tasty and the ingredients were fresh. And the cofffee? Who knew that the French could make such amazing coffee.

AND now for the best part. Every entree is served with a side salad AND AND AND french fries. If you know me at all, I have a huge weak spot for french fries. And the fries, or as the French would say, pomme frites, at Bistrot du Coin? Delicious.

Would I go back for brunch? Absolutely. Should you? Yes, yes you should.
