One thing that has changes in our lives since having a baby is date night. Date night has become date day and I’m all for it (because pancakes, duh). Boston has an abundance of brunch spots and each time we visit we’ve been trying a new one. They are all unique but none have let us down thus far (or complained about our baby in tow… even when he recently found his voice and made sure everyone knew he was present).
Bostonia Public House is a short walk from the Greenway, Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market boasting beautifully rich and traditional Boston style. The banana foster French toast was so good, as were the breakfast tacos and eggs your way (that griddled English muffin!). They also have an impressive cocktail menu including a house made bloody mary with a fancy garnish bar (not a fan but many tables had them). We are already talking about returning to this spot for dinner!
ArtBar is actually located in Cambridge at the Royal Sonesta Hotel but does not serve your typical mediocre hotel food as the egg white frittata with sweet potato tots was delicious. We sat at the outdoor patio overlooking the Charles River and the views did not disappoint either! Plus, the location is still walking distance to Boston if you decide to leave your car at the hotel and explore the city.
North Street Grille is a cozy spot situated in the North End and serves everything you could ever want in a brunch. From chocolate milk martinis and blood orange limoncello mimosas to house made banana bread French toast and loaded mashed potato omelets, there is most definitely something for everyone. Prepare to leave here with a full belly!
Terra is located on the third floor of Eataly Boston inside the Prudential Center. Inside this garden oasis you’ll find food cooked on a wood-burning grill with open flames, yummy cocktails and an extensive wine and beer list. The rose flight was so good I ended up buying a bottle of my favorite wine in Eataly after we ate.
Where are your favorite Boston brunch spots? We’d love to try them!
