Founding Farmers- Organic Bliss Inspired by our Past

New Orleans French Toast at Founding Farmers

By Rohan: 

When you arrive at Founding Farmers, it feels as if you have jumped into the pages of a coloring book. Vibrant landscapes of American agriculture cover the walls and statues of barnyard animals are scattered everywhere. You sit at wooden picnic-style tables, waited on by staff dressed for the occasion, and prepare for a delicious ode to American history with a modern twist.

The items on the menu feature specialties from several American cities prepared with fresh, organic ingredients. Items like New England French Toast will make your mouth water with its warm cinnamon aroma that is a perfect pick-me-up. In addition, Founding Farmers’ delicious doughnut holes caked with powdered sugar or their moist biscuits will get you energized for a day of touring the nation’s capital.

All of us at Paupers are vegetarian, and Founding Farmers takes pride in providing plenty of meatless options for people with this dietary restriction. A myriad of egg dishes, classic breakfast options like pancakes and waffles, and my personal favorite–the aforementioned french toast, make dining at Farmers feel like a feast.

At the end of a satisfying meal topped off with fresh juices and soothing coffee, your waiter hands you your bill in a small tin mailbox–just another way Founding Farmers will win you over with its childlike charm. The fun doesn’t stop at breakfast! Make sure to re-visit Founding Farmers for an entirely different menu for lunch and dinner. A word of advice: do not forget to make reservations, this place is always packed!

Founding Farmers has two locations in the DC metro area–one in the heart of our capital and the other outside in Rockville, Maryland. Find out more at http://www.wearefoundingfarmers.com/

The Fractured Prune- A Delicious Breakfast Treat

Yummy creations at the Fractured Prune

By Rohan: 

If you find yourself in Ocean City, Maryland as we prepare to embrace for chilly fall weather here on the East Coast, make sure to check out the Fractured Prune. Despite the rather unusual name for a dessert place, this small pastry shop with several locations along the Ocean City Boardwalk is doing donuts a little differently. While your traditional Dunkin Donuts offers pre-made flavors, The Fractured Prune takes the fried delicacy to a whole new level by allowing you to completely customize your donut-eating experience.

What does this mean? You start out with a plain, old-fashioned donut. From there, you get to choose a flavor of frosting. The Fractured Prune offers everything from the typical vanilla and chocolate to the obscure frosting top such as blueberry and maple syrup. Once your donuts are nice and sticky, its time to select toppings. Here, you can go the more traditional route and stick with sprinkles and nuts, or try adding graham cracker crumbs to make a donut taste like Grandma’s apple pie.

In addition to serving delicious handmade donuts fresh from the fryers, the Fractured Prune offers a lively and colorful dining experience. From serving their steaming hot donuts on frisbees to use later at the beach to 50’s memorabilia plastered all over the walls, this is an Ocean City attraction that you don’t want to miss.

If you are taking kids to the area or just want to splurge on a sugary snack for yourself, look no further than the Fractured Prune! For more information about their Ocean City locations, check out out http://www.fracturedprune.com/menu_oc.php
