No matter the season, brunch is the reason. If it’s freezing cold, brunch warms the heart. On sparkling summer days, sitting outside and brunching is deeply satisfying. The combination of a hearty meal, mid-morning drinks, and trendy surroundings contribute to the ever-growing popularity of brunch.
Worry not, there’s absolutely no shortage of delicious brunch spots in Boston. Now, choosing a brunch joint, on the other hand, is a bit of a challenge since there are just so many. We’ve got you covered, being passionate brunchers ourselves, here’s a quick list of our favorite haunts.
Brunch in Boston is Exceptional – Here are 5 of the Best
1. Stephanie’s on Newbury
Newbury Street is one of the classic must-stroll along streets of Boston. It’s lined with designer shops, coffee shops, and countless delicious restaurants. Stephanie’s is pleasantly perched in the heart of it all and happens to feature a scrumptious weekend brunch menu. You can expect to devour cinnamon monkey bread, egg shakshuka, lobster guacamole, and so much more!
2. Southern Proper
One of the newest restaurants to open in the South End of Boston, the folks at Southern Proper wasted no time in adding brunch to the mix! Created as an homage to North Carolina, the home state of the chef and proprietor, Jason Cheek. Wood, sourced from North Carolina, and plant life fill the establishment and the scent of pine, intermixed with the cuisine, waft throughout. Don’t miss the chicken and waffles, the big bad pecan cinnamon bun, and a wafflewich stuffed with all the brunch goodness.
3. Tiger Mama
Chances are you’ve never had Southeast Asian fare for brunch, right? We hadn’t either until Tiger Mama, a Boston favorite, began offering brunch! A restaurant worth going to for the ambiance and decor alone, the brunch menu is surprisingly delicious and has quickly become a favorite spot among locals. Brunch is only served on Sundays, and we recommend trying Singapore street noodles, Indian fried chicken, and wasabi-spiked bloody Mary’s.
