As a media maven who spends her time ‘Seeing some world” and doling out hardcore advice on her social media pages. I was curious to find out how the millennials answer to Dr. Ruth brunches. I recently caught up with Demetria to find out how she brunches. Here are my ten quick-fire questions and here's what “the Black Carrie Bradshaw” to say about her brunch behavior!
Favorite brunch spot? Milk and Honey Cafe 10606 Baltimore Ave, Beltsville, MD 20705 - Lobster Crab Hash is 8 oz deep fried lobster tail served over crab covered hash brown casserole. Is the best thing ever!
Coffee or Tea? Coffee
Mimosa or Bellini? I don't drink anymore, but when I did it was definitely Bellini's
When I’m not being a Brunchnista , You can find me? You can find me writing my book or at the gym! I have a new found love for the gym it makes me feel great.
When I brunch at home, my go to meal is? I would make banana pancakes, and scrambled eggs with cheese.
Favorite brunch squad! Brianna Bigham, we had some amazing brunches back in the day.
One brunch item you hate?Anything with meat, and celery anything!
Most played song on your iTunes? Do people still listen to iTunes?? LOL. I listen to Tidal, and my favorite song right now is H.E.R Focus
If you could have brunch with any woman, who would it be and why? I would want shop with Tracee Ellis Ross then go to brunch. She like a big sister in my head, insightful, funny, smart. I would want her to share her hair tips, life tips, style tips, woman tips. I just want her guidance.
Fav brunch outfit? My Diesel sweat-dress with leather sleeves and black tights, hunter boots with shearling lining and Canada Goose. Half City half suburban with a dash of LL bean -it’s the classic “A Belle of the Burbs” look.
