Revelry Review: DC Bread and Brew

On Friday I ate lunch at a place that opened up not all that long ago near my work called DC Bread and Brew. As most of you know, I am a mostly vegetarian/meat avoidant/pescatarian/flexitarian/plant-based diet person, as well as trying my hardest to stay healthy and lose weight, and as such I often have a challenging time eating in restaurants.

I was first drawn in by the cozy atmosphere (but that could've been the icky D.C. weather!). The menu changes daily, but there are always pizzas, sandwiches, salads, soups and quiche, as well as a few types of bigger main entrees. The choices that day ranged from a curried okra and coconut rice dish to a spinach and tomato pizza. There were many vegetarian and vegan options. There was also an assortment of baked goods, which I veered away from, but some readers might like to know that they included vegan options as well. The staff seemed friendly and the food was fresh. You can read more reviews here.

I ordered a half of a sandwich (hummus and roasted veggie on whole wheat) and a cup of soup (an amazing vegan creamy squash soup that had basil and coconut milk with a tiny bit of spice). The best part? This yummy meal won't break the bank ($8.25, which is a steal in this area) nor widen the waistline.

I tried Bread & Brew a couple months ago, and really enjoyed it. I had a smoked salmon pizza, which probably isn't the healthiest thing on the menu, but it was pretty delicious. The only thing I didn't like is that it seemed rather dark and dreary inside, like it needed a bit of a makeover. Still, it's definitely a good option to have nearby.

I am so glad you posted a review on them - I keep hearing they have tons of vegan options, though oddly they do not highlight that on their website. I will definitely check it out soon :)

Their menu lists only a few things since the menu changes every day. There were at least 20 choices of things the day I was there!
