Brunches in Boston vary as much as the neighborhoods. There are the more sophisticated ones in Back Bay, the cleverly themed ones in the Financial District, the live music ones in the South End, and more.
Back Bay brunches are ideal in those early days of summer before the sun and humidity creep into town. That's because Back Bay brunch, at its best, is served on a breezy patio space where the mimosas are free-flowing. With so much outdoor patio space, this neighborhood is perfect for people-watching and also the most likely place to spot a celebrity in Boston out for an early weekend bite to eat.
South End brunches are some of the most colorful in all of Boston, with themes like pajamas and live jazz. Once considered unsafe and run-down, the neighborhood is now fabulously chic, gorgeously redeveloped, and filled with hidden gems. The brunches here are filled with locals rather than out-of-town visitors and tourists, and the folks in this neighborhood would prefer to keep it that way.
The more inexpensive spots in town tend to attract a mostly collegiate crowd, so don't be surprised to see pajama pants and academic institution-labeled hoodies on most of the kids in these places. Still, sometimes a heaping plate of eggs, bacon, and toast at 1pm are just what the doctor ordered – at any age.
