We're meeting Seacoast ME friends in this area next weekend. Ideas? God I love brunch! Annie

  1. There's always the IHOP in Tewksbury right off 495 at exit 38, which is also rt 38. But for something more adventurous drive into Lowell to the Owl diner for their eggs benedict.

    1. The Outlook at Nashoba Ski Area might be fun in Westford just off 495 - Easter Brunch Sunday. I love the Owl diner for breakfast in Lowell (the best). It's not a brunch though. Chelmsford has Skips, right off Rt. 110 (just off 495) and a restaurant in the Radisson (behind Skips) is having an Easter Brunch on Sunday. Are you looking for something for Sunday?

        No, not for Easter Sunday -- the following week. The Owl sounds awesome.

          Best Eggs Bennie too. Best breakfast place ever!

            If you like ham, do try either the eggs bennie, or get a side of ham. Excellent thick, juicy, freshly cut portions.

              I found another great place too for this same awesome ham. Cindy Ann's House of Ham in Dracut (lakeview Ave) and awesome Eggs Bennie too. Best best best corn muffins ever!!!! Owl diner also has sisters that own Dream Diner in Tyngsboro and Rosie's Diner in Chelmsford - both have that same awesome ham.

                Hmm! I'll have to put that on the list :)
                Do they (Cindy Ann's) only do breakfast (I'd assume)? Sounds like it's a distinct possibility.

                What would you say the best dish you've tried there is?

                  I saw a sign about a lunch menu coming or new lunch menu coming so breakfast isn't the only thing but looks like Breakfast is the biggest hit. My favorite is the Eggs Benedict and the best corn muffin ever ever!!! I can now have excellent Eggs Bennie at Cindy's or Owl - before it was only Owl (or their sister places).
