If you're looking for a fine brunch in upper NW DC, don't think you can do much better than Terasol. Our party had a full array of omelettes, croque-monsieurs, and other fine French-style brunch bits. Not cheap, but worth the price.

Great, real French menu choices. Perfect bread, incredible stews, great fish.... large portions, but our table of 4 managed to clean every plate. Cozy interior, good music. Cannot wait to go back!

Had heard people describe Terasol Gallery Café as a neighborhood gem. And it turned out to be a delicious retreat. At lunch I had a salmon filet, nicely sautéed, and served on a bed of spinach with a sweet potato mousse. Really well done. The...More
