I think that I could eat breakfast for all three meals of the day - it's one of my favorite meals to go out for on the weekends and I also love to make it on my own - muffins, pancakes, waffles, frittatas, scrambles. I could keep on going, but instead I'll share with you a couple reviews for breakfast places I've been to in the past couple weeks. There seems to be an endless list of breakfast and brunch places nearby - and they're not the greasy spoon type places, but rather cute cafes or restaurants with really unique menus - my favorite kind of brunch places!
44 Charles St, Beacon Hill
I've had dinner here, but I've been meaning to try breakfast for a long time given all the rumors I've heard about it being fantastic! Last weekend I met a good friend here and after walking around Beacon Hill, we finally decided on giving Paramount a try because we quickly realized that having "brunch" at 9am doesn't really work because all of the brunch places around that area don't open until probably 11am. Given how busy Paramount was though - it seems like those other restaurants would have plenty of business if they also opened earlier.
1 Kendall Square, Cambridge
I've been hearing about the legend of The Friendly Toast for years now. This restaurant started in Portsmouth, NH and opened up another spot in Cambridge (near Kendall Square) probably two years ago. This gives me two opportunities to check it out, and yet - it's taken me years to finally make my way there for breakfast. Dinner - I've tried, and enjoyed of course, but breakfast is another story. At a family party a couple weeks ago my cousin was telling me of the time he went to the one in Portsmouth and ordered the gingerbread pancakes - and I knew I had to make it a priority to get to this restaurant! Luckily, I had plans with a good friend to meet for breakfast this weekend and we both agreed on The Friendly Toast.
Long story short - I highly recommend The Friendly Toast - for all of you in the Greater Boston or NH areas! Don't get there too late though - when my friend and I were leaving around 11 the line was out the door!
