    Great spot for brunch. Try the Firefly omelet and a side of sausage to power up. Relaxed brunch vibe too and good option for dining solo

    The 1/2 pound beef burger with blue cheese, red onion jam, worcestershire aioli and truffle fries is amazing for the money. Really delicious. Good service and very friendly staff.

    Great happy hour! One of the best with healthy options and they even have bubbles as a HH option. Their pumpkin humus is the best I have ever had!

    The best breakfast I had our whole time there. Biscuits, gravy and smoked sausage were very rich but delicious!! Tables were quite small in the bar area though.

    Modern American neighborhood spot with quality cocktails. Need gluten-free options? They're happy to help, just call ahead.

    Great cocktails for $5 during happy hour (4-7). Reasonable amount of choice for these discounted cocktails. Also GET TRUFFLE FRIES. They're salty and delicious.

    I highly recommend the mac n' three cheese! Ooey, gooey but not greasy. Perfect dish for indulging. Also, Firefly offers gluten-free options for lunch/brunch/dinner, which is great!

    Make a reservation, but it's totally worth it :). It's not "bottomless brunch" either but the carafes with entre make it pretty affordable

    Green eggs and ham -- Dr. Suess would approve! Elvis Sandwich is a creative idea but best ordered as a dish to share with several people, otherwise it’s just too much sugar for just one person. Read more

    The Dupont Circle fixture has an upscale urban-picnic vibe and food made with garden ingredients. Dig into root vegetable risotto.

    A little pricey, but they do have $3 brunch mimosas. Always take my out-of-town friends here.

    The white fish platter for brunch is so good. It's like a good ol brunch with your Jewish grandparents.

    Cudos to the owner. Having children make their own sugar (ginger man) cookie is a great way to pass the time

    Wednesday is ladies night---50 percent off specialty cocktails and glasses of wine in the bar or lounge. Better still, Sunday night is 50 percent off any bottle of wine!

    The Eggs Benedict are fantastic, but ask to swap the Home Fries it comes with for Truffle Fries.
