Our love of brunch began fall 2013 at Howard University. We were constantly hearing our upperclassmen friends talk about brunch and how much fun it was. Naturally, we got on Yelp and started searching for the perfect place to make our brunch debut. We settled on Creme, a black owned restaurant (formerly) located on U Street. The menu looked tasty and the aesthetic was chic, it was perfect. That Sunday afternoon, we requested a table for three, and the rest was history.
We fell in love. The food, the atmosphere, the fashion: it really was perfect. That day #SassySundayBrunch was formed. What began as girl time eventually became a mission in which we tried to taste, experience, and enjoy as many brunches DC had to offer. Five years have gone by and nothing has changed. Though we all live in different cities, the #SassySundayBrunch mission lives on. Our love for brunch will always continue, that love that began with a table for trés.
Here at Table for Trés, we want to share our love of brunch with you. We’ve found the restaurants, tasted the menus and drank the mimosas. This blog documents our findings.
