If you would like to enjoy this morning favorite, visit one of these restaurants near our Clarendon apartments where you’ll find short and tall stacks served with crispy bacon:

Founding Farmers

Established in 2005, Founding Farmers, located 8-minutes away, serves innovative dishes that honor the farmers and their hard-earned bounty. The chefs start their day early to churn the butter, grind the beef, and bake the artisan bread from scratch (approximately 170,000 loaves a year). The restaurant is a favorite among locals and visitors alike. It features two stories of rustic dining complete with sunflowers, silo-shaped booths, and wood accents. For breakfast, try the bananas foster pancakes with New York maple syrup. 


Juniper is where locals gather to share family-style dishes. Executive Chef Jordi Rojas Gallardo was born in Barcelona. He learned about fresh ingredients on his family’s farm and enjoys sharing a taste of his homeland with Washington D.C. The restaurant offers a warm, casual atmosphere. Guests receive attentive service, and the waitstaff ensures a memorable dining experience. The menu includes blueberry pancakes, which pair well with the H.C. Valentino espresso or Royal Cup coffee. Juniper is an 11-minute drive away.


Step into the Commissary, located 15-minutes away, where you’ll find a casual neighborhood restaurant serving everything from hearty breakfasts to house-made desserts. The menu is simple and affordable, and also offers an extensive daily happy hour. Breakfast starts at 8:00 a.m. and guests can enjoy their meals inside or on the quaint patio. Try the buttermilk pancakes with a cup of Cafe au Lait.
