All You Can Eat Brunch at Founding Farmers in Tysons Corner

If you ever visit the D.C. area and ask around for food recommendations, more than likely someone will mention Founding Farmers. The original location opened in D.C. in 2008 and has since opened a location in Maryland and most recently, in Northern Virginia, in the Tysons Corner area.

Founding Farmers is owned by nearly 40,000 farmers of the North Dakota Farmers Union (NDFU) and the majority of the food that is made from scratch every day by the restaurant is locally sourced from farms in the surrounding area. In shorter terms, it’s a co-op farm-to-table restaurant that serves rustic style American food. And the food? It’s good. Consistently good. Ooooh, and don’t even get me started on their baked goods a.k.a. desserts… (slammin)

It’s one of those kinds of restaurants that is generally always packed especially on the weekends. There’s really no point in trying to walk in and expect a seat. Make a reservation to be on the safe side. And for the holidays, make a reservation a couple weeks in advance.

Charles and I have been to the D.C. location a couple of times but decided to check out the Tysons Corner location since it’s much closer to where we live in Northern VA.

Charles’ best friend, Anthony, was in town and after an early morning group run, we made our way to the restaurant for brunch. All you can eat brunch. For $30, you have unlimited access to a buffet style of breakfast/lunch offerings, complimentary tea and/or coffee and their delicious sweet and savory baked goods.

In all the times we’ve visited Founding Farmers in D.C., we always ordered from the menu a la carte for brunch. I feel like the “all you can eat” buffet is only available the Tysons Corner location on the weekends. Not sure 100% but a strong 98% that it’s only available at Tysons…

Just googled it and can confirm that the brunch buffet only available at the Tysons Corner location.

^^ Our first plate. I posted a picture of our second serving w/ dessert on Instagram here.

As with any restaurant that offers an “all you can eat” option, the key is to eat. ALOT. It’s the only way to make the most bang for your buck especially at $30 per person. And eat we did.

We ate our first plate. Drank some tea. Burped a few times to make room for more food and then went for seconds. Drank some more tea. Burped some more and then went for dessert. Needless the say, after 2 1/2 hours of eating,  we were stuffed and ready for a mid-Sunday nap which is exactly what we went home to do afterwards :)
