Overwood Brunch in Old Town Alexandria

The husband had a super long Friday as he accompanied a VIP all day to Pennsylvania and back. His day started off at 5:30 am, and he was on the go until he finally returned home at 10:30 pm. After a good night's sleep, we started out bright and early on Saturday morning. We headed to Old Town so he could get a haircut. I wandered around the quaint sidewalks, noting that most of the stores do not open until at least 11 am. I wandered around a special charity shop whose proceeds benefit the blind, and found two books. After meeting up, we headed to Overwood for a big brunch.
Super fluffy and light blueberry pancakes. 
Cheese grits with poached eggs, toast and bacon.
The grits were sooo creamy and delicious, with a hint of garlic. The eggs were poached perfectly.
Eggs Chesapeake
Two poached eggs on crabcakes and an English muffin with crispy homefries.
We rarely have big brunches these days, but Overwood is always a solid choice, and probably my favorite brunch spot in Old Town. After a nice post-brunch nap, I did a workout, the husband finally had time to thoroughly wash the car, and I headed up to Clarendon to see two lovely ladies. Overall, a pretty great day.
