Farmers Fishers Bakers has a beautiful, rustic-yet-modern ambiance with a lively, fun vibe and a scrumptious brunch. It’s worth the trek to Georgetown!
The Pursuit of it All ladies are brunching fanatics. F-A-N-A-T-I-C-S.
There’s nothing quite as squeal-inducing as a well-displayed spread of ALL THE FOOD IN THE WORLD that’s just waiting to be leisurely consumed. Also, where else is it perfectly acceptable to drink before 10 a.m., in an atmosphere where it’s also perfectly acceptable to turn up in last night’s clothes? Nothing says, “Weekend!” quite like a delicious, leisurely brunch.
If we could figure out a way to make a career out of testing brunches around the world then by God we would. Until that little fantasy becomes a reality, though, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to actively brunch and share those experiences, for the sole purpose of helping you find your own version of brunching nirvana. (Okay maybe not the sole purpose, but you it gives us a great excuse to eat in the name of “research.”)
It was with this in mind that Sue, my husband Michael, and I set out to experience the brunch world of Farmers Fishers Bakers in Georgetown, D.C. We’re all huge Founding Farmers fans so we had high expectations going in, and I’ll tell ya, we weren’t disappointed.
Brunch At Farmers Fishers Bakers
Farmers Fishers Bakers has a beautiful, rustic-yet-modern ambiance with a lively, fun vibe and a scrumptious brunch.
As lovely as the interior is, for our visit we chose to sit outside and soak up the beautiful fall weather on the patio — the perfect spot for to trying the FF Bloody Mary with infused pepper vodka. Mmm…
There are a few things you need to know about brunch at Farmers Fishers Bakers.
It’s $29.99 for the brunch buffet, which includes coffee and iced tea. Brunch is served also with fresh, family-style dishes that are passed around from the waiters. The “traveling trays” include Eggs Benedict, sushi, Fishers Fry, and pizza. Also served to your table are warm cinnamon rolls and biscuits.
Tip: The cinnamon rolls are to absolutely die for. Worth the price of the entire brunch IMHO.
Inside you’ll find stations sporting names like “Gardner’s Table” and “Butcher’s Table” and “Carving Table.” You need to devote time to visit to each one of these stations when you visit Farmers Fishers Bakers. The food is scrumptious and each area has amazing finds. Skipping one area will result in FOMO. Trust me on this.
At the Carving Table the sweet bread french toast was my favorite. I sampled both the Bananas Foster and fresh fruit compote versions. Adding a side of the grilled thick-cut bacon (Sue’s favorite) and the cured ham for good measure. (Because, research!)
The Butcher’s Table pork tacos and guacamole were mouth-watering and unreal. My husband was all about about the honey pot fried chicken, breakfast jambalaya, and dips and breads. Mmm…
The real fun came with desserts, though. Sue loves her desserts and she made us try every single one. Every. Single. One. (Okay, she didn’t exactly put a gun to our heads, but it sounds less gluttonous if I claim to be forced.)
My one regret? I didn’t save room for BRÛLÉED PINK GRAPEFRUIT. Yes, that’s right. Brûléed. They looked delicious.
We will definitely be back to brunch here again. Sue declared it the “best brunch she’d had in ages” and I would agree. The water front views can’t be beat and we loved walking off our calories window-shopping through charming Georgetown.
