The second I finished my half marathon the thought of food made me nauseous. You would think that after running 13 miles you’d be willing to eat anything in your path — even raisins, maybe even pickles. Alas, I spent my time drinking water and slowly trying to eat some breakfast bars. Luckily, it only took me about half an hour till I was waiting in line for my free McDonald’s frappe and awaiting my brunch buffet at The Front Page in Washington.
Walking in, I saw the perfectly cut fruit, fresh pastries and crispy bacon. I could no longer feel the pain in the legs, and I instead focused on intaking as many calories as possible. For $21 you can partake in the all you can eat buffet as well as unlimited mimosas.
The name of the restaurant makes perfect sense when you see the tons of old front pages of newspapers with some of the biggest headlines. When you go to D.C. you really can’t get away from the history.
After looking around at the countless framed newspapers, I headed to the made to order omelet station. Located next to the omelet station is fresh cut roast beef and waffles (a weird mixture, but still delicious separately). The waffles toppings included nutella, whipped cream, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries and blueberries. Speaking of weird mixtures, alongside the biscuits & gravy and breakfast potatoes there was also a tray of penne ala vodka. Never really thought of penne as a brunch food but I wasn’t complaining. It as delicious and I went back for thirds.
This is my second plate and at that point I was probably on my third mimosa. You can definitely get your moneys worth at The Front Page.
