Brunch in Waltham area?
I'm meeting up with the extend family in the Waltham area, and am looking for a place to have brunch for about 10 people. Since some are veggies, a place that had decent eggs, crepes, waffles, pastas etc. along with the typical brunch meats would be appreciated.
Joseph's II and Wilson's Diner in Waltham are greasy spoon breakfast places. Neither is a buffet brunch and would probably lack the meats, but Joseph's does have decent steak and eggs. Both are popular, so it might be difficult for a large group but Joseph's is larger.
Andros Diner in Belmont (less than 10 minutes) has greek-flavored cooking and breakfast (I think 7:30-1pm on Sundays, but call to check). It would be my choice, but still not exactly your buffet. They might be able to reserve space in their back room for your group if you call.
Not that near to Waltham, but the Stockyard in Allston just started serving brunch and will definately have the meats. Should have something for the veggies and its a quick ride in on the pike. This should be easeir with a group as well as the following options.
Yangtze river in Lexington and Jumbo Seafood in Newton have Dim Sum. The former is a bit variable, but pretty good.
There also is the old country buffet in Watertown, but I think you would be better off going across the bridge into Brighton for the Stockyard.
For something different, try The Elephant Walk (formerly Carambola) on Main St. facing the Waltham common. There are Cambodian and French options.
I've never tried the place in the diner car (also on Main St heading towards Watertown) but it looks like fun..
I forgot the Concord Inn. Not sure if they do brunch, but the setting is historic and elegant! Worth a drive from Waltham.
Brunch at the Coach Grill in Wayland, on Route 20 is very nice. Menu has good variety, nice setting.
