If your mind is already on the weekend, read on for exciting morning noshing, including bacon flights, Turkish eggs Benedict, and a half-smoked Bloody Mary.

The Source by Wolfgang Puck starts brunch a day early on Saturdays from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., with traditional brunch and Asian-inspired dishes. Order a dim sum platter with spicy Thai-style chicken salad or market-fresh berry French toast with sausage. There’s also a three-course prix-fixe lunch for $28. See the brunch menu here. Don’t forget The Source‘s creative take on the Bloody Mary! Shanghai Mary with Szechuan chili paste; and the classic District Mary with a miniature half-smoke garnish. The Source, 575 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW. 202.637.6100.

Agora is serving up a Mediterranean brunch on Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Get a healthy start with labneh, strained yogurt with fruits and nuts; or a beet salad with lemon mashed potatoes, garlic, and orange; or charcoal-smoked eggplant, green and red peppers. A Turkish twist on the old includes Pastirma Eggs Benedict with poached eggs and cured loin of beef; or scrambled eggs with spicy Turkish sausage. Agora, 1527 17th Street NW. 202.332.6767

Eola offers Sunday brunch from 11:30 am – 3:30 pm, with fresh ingredients plucked straight out of the Dupont Farmers’ Market. Wake up to French toast, eggs and hash, homemade cinnamon rolls, market veggies, Cheddar grits,or biscuits and jam. Bacon, bacon, booze, brunch. Those are my priorities. What’re yours?

The most important part of Eola’s brunch in my opinion, is the bacon flight. A. Flight. Of Bacon. Choose from a variety of house-cured and smoked bacon including Duroc-Hampshire, Farmer’s Cross, Ossabaw, and Tamworth breeds, for $12. See the brunch menu here. Eola, 2020 P. Street NW. 202.466.4441
