There’s a new brunch spot to hit Adams Morgan, but they aren’t just serving pancakes.

Locolat, at the corner of Florida Avenue and U Street NW, looks from the outside to be a Belgian Chocolate shop.  And while they do have an amazing pastry and chocolates case inside the store, the beer list may be just as intriguing.

Niel and Geert Piferoen, the Belgian father and son team who operate this chocolate and pastry shop, have an impressive combined experience in the food world.  Before launching Locolat, Niel Piferoen, the son, spent time working for Citronelle, The Ritz-Carlton, and Karmeliet, to name a few places. Geert Piferoen, Niel’s father, is a classically trained Master Chef of Belgium.  Their menu offers savory waffles, crepes, gourmet coffee, and much more.
