Weekend brunch is undoubtedly the best time to visit Extra Perks Coffee Shop in Alexandria. From open until 2:30 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays, Extra Perks really lives up to its name with a spread of decadent brunch dishes.
For anyone who likes their breakfast sweet, you can't go wrong with the Italian French toast. Chefs use thick slices of ciabatta bread to create the traditionally French dish, cooking it to crispy and sugary sweet on the outside, and fluffy and soft on the inside. Chocolate chip pancakes, blueberry waffles, and golden pancakes also bring the sweet flavors. For something savory, try the steak and eggs with a four-ounce filet mignon, two eggs prepared how you like them, hash browns, and fresh fruit. Or, dig into the fish and eggs, a filet of grilled tilapia that comes with the same fixings as the steak plus some fresh greens.
