Last week I went to one of the best restaurants for brunch in the Washington D.C. metro area – Potomac, MD to be exact. Founding Farmers is far different than any other restaurant, the restaurant has a modern vibe with a rustic touch of décor. Half n half is served in a mini milk carton shaped metal container and the fork and knives have a unique rustic print. The restaurant prides itself in providing green, sustainable food, ensuring that all of the ingredients come straight from the farm to your plate.
The menu is a delicious twist on American classics: red velvet pancakes, pastrami hash, waffles, French toast, crab eggs benedict, scrambles, etc. You get to enjoy these classics with a choice of biscuits, multi-grain breads, and/or leek hash browns. Personally, I aimed for staying healthy and treated myself to the Drag Through The Garden ($10) which came with the leek hash browns and a biscuit. But before indulging in my breakfast, I highly recommend trying their coffee.
Working for Starbucks many of years in my past, I became quite the coffee connoisseur and I’d love to know what kind of Arabica coffee beans Founding Farmers uses for their daily brew. Even my brother who’s not much of a coffee drinker enjoys a cup – enough said! My brunch eggs were scrambled with egg whites, white cheddar cheese, spinach and roasted veggies (tomatoes, peppers, carrots, onions, etc.) By far the best scramble I have had. My brother indulged in the red velvet pancakes ($8) and their glazed bacon but since the servings are pretty large he couldn’t manage to eat it all.
