Here are some good spots to get breakfast when work opens late (or not at all)

Le Caprice breakfast sandwiches are freaking delicious This week, the weather has been pretty crummy, and folks who work at schools or who follow the US government calendar got a late start or even a whole day off.  For some people, that just means more time to sleep in, but it can also mean you have an extra few hours to get a relaxed breakfast.

And if that's your plan, here's a list of some of my favorite breakfast options in case we get another snow day (or if you just have time in the mornings for whatever reason.)
  • Le Caprice at 3460 14th Street NW is my favorite bakery. They have great breakfast sandwiches with tomato, egg and cheese, plus meat if you'd like it (I always get the roll, pictured above, but I hear the others are good) plus coffee, fruit and tons of pastries.
  • Room 11 at 11th and Lamont has breakfast, with some pastries from Paisley Fig, coffee and espresso, and small breakfast plates like a pork belly confit sandwich. They open at 8 am during the week.
  • The Coupe at 11th and Monroe is obviously a good bet, they're open 24 hours and have tons of breakfast food.
  • The new Milk Cult pop-up shop at Park View Patio (3632 Georgia Ave NW) sounds like it would be a good stop too, with breakfast tacos, ice cream sandwiches, pastries and Vigilante coffee. They open at 7:30 am.
  • The Uptowner on 14th just north of Park (next to Z-Burger) opens at 7 am on weekdays and Yelpers like their breakfast sandwiches. I haven't tried those, but I do like their regular sandwiches, so I bet the morning fare is also pretty good.
  • Coffy Cafe across from the Uptowner also has breakfast, mainly delicious sweet or savory crepes, and has a really nice atmosphere too. They also open at 7 am on weekdays.
So those are some of my favorites, how are yours? Any spots I missed?
