On Saturdays and Sundays from 11:00-3:00pm, time stands still and not only are the mimosas bottomless, but so are the Turkish cheeses, the omelettes, the flatbreads, the eggs, the everything. Agora is a Mediterranean brunch heaven in Dupont Circle, right around the corner from our favorite happy hour oyster spot, Hank’s Oyster Bar. It’s $32.99/person for an unlimited pre-fixe brunch, so go with someone you either haven’t seen in a while, or you really like because it’s going to be an event.
Sydney and I arrived around 1:00pm with a reservation, but other people seemed to be walking right in with no wait. We hunkered down and immediately ordered Bloody Marys. Over-doused in Old Bay, they were not tasty, but turned out to be the only disappointment of the day. We quickly swapped them out for our old standby, Bottomless Mimosas, which our waitress was nice about doing. She also readily refilled the mimosas from then on out, so we literally never did get to the bottom of a glass.
We started off with the Tulum, a Turkish cheese served with pitas and honeycomb. It was spreadable, and perfect with the honey. If you’re not up for an all-day brunch extravaganza, hit up Agora for a drink and this cheese a la carte.
Next we had two different kinds of omelettes: the Manchego+Tomato and the Spinach+Feta. The omelettes are served with roasted redskin potatoes. We loved them both, but the spinach may have been slightly tastier. We spent the rest of the day with the Peynirli Pide (feta and tomato) flatbread and French toast. Â We noticed at this point that we had chosen all vegetarian dishes. Because the plates were hearty and numerous, though, and almost didn’t notice its absence. So this is a good place to take your veggie friends.
It was glorious. And all in all a fantastic deal. So, if you’re hungry, have no where to be, and someone you like to talk to, head to Agora for bottomless brunch.
