Brunch at The Pembroke

A real-time, exquisite way to start your Saturday morning I might say!
The Pembroke is located around the iconic Dupont Circle at 1500 New Hampshire Ave NW, D.C. I had an event later on in the evening so a good friend of mine and I decided to spend the day taking pictures, get some brunch in the city and make a day of it! This was our first time visiting the Pembroke and it was one of the most remarkable experiences for brunch I have had.

We made a reservation for 12pm on a Saturday and you would think it would be super busy, the ambiance was so calming and not overcrowded like most brunch locations. The setting was beyond stunning. You know your girl loves her aesthetics and The Pembroke is an aesthetic inside and out (I will be going back to sit in the floral patio when the warmer months come around)! We arrived early and the hostess was so kind in accommodating us even with an early arrival. The waiter for our table was Matthew (I highly suggest requesting him, he is incredibly nice, attentive and consistent with checking up on his guests) and he welcomed us with the menu and our table.

The menu is a mix diverse of your eggs with greens, pancakes, waffles, grains, meats, seafood and all the flavors in every bite. First, I ordered the egg white frittata with spinach, tomato, goat cheese, fresh thyme and as a beverage, water. Due to my diet restrictions, I am not able to eat tomatoes and asked to have avocado as the substitute. Matthew was so kind in adding that as the substitute and it made me feel super comfortable in knowing a restaurant can accommodate that little things like that (other restaurants are stingy when it comes to substituting, especially with avocado). The water could not have been any more refreshing and every bite with this frittata was heavenly with the goat cheese (I had my lactaid pills with me because I am also lactose intolerant). The spinach added a great, soft crunch to the eggs and the thyme is the perfect herb that compliments the combination very well. lastly, the avocado was extremely yummy! I have a weakness for chilled avocado and warm eggs whites. I also ordered a side of berries that consisted of strawberries, blueberries and blackberries which happen to be three of five fruits that I can only eat again, because of my diet restrictions. Fresh and yummy, the fruits tasted like they were just handpicked and washed into the serving bowl! 

At the end of our brunch, the manager came up to us and asked how our visit was. This is extremely welcoming that that manager took time out of his busy restaurant on a weekend to ask how we are doing and if we enjoyed our visit. Things like this really touch customers to come back again and believe me, I will be back. Cheers to 10/10 service, 10/10 food, 10/10 hospitality and a timeless experience!
