The dreaded brunch thread

I am not a brunch person, but I will be finding myself between East Cambridge and Inman Square on Saturday at 11am.
Have come up with:
ASS Bar (except not for the filet-o-fish)
Petsi's for scones/tart/cinnamon roll
Where should I eat? What's open? Brunch/early lunch/late breakfast options are all welcome.
Eclectic assortment you've offered there... Petsi's is great, but it's a bit low on atmosphere. I love the brunch at B-side but atmosphere-wise, inevitably I feel like I've been there sleeping on the floor all night and awoken to breakfast accidentally...
Avoid S&S... despite the long lines the food is ho-hum and the service brusque.
Toscanini's (somewhat) new "breakfast at the big table" at the Main St. branch. Atmosphere is very casual but the food is all prepared with a lot of care and quite delicious. Wonderful fruit salad (even in winter), terrific homemade sausage, fancy breakfast sandwiches, cornmeal crusted pancakes etc. Plus some of Cambridge's best coffee and then ice cream for dessert. Open Sat and Sun at 10 am.
As good as Punjabi Dhaba is at dinner, the items I absolutely crave are the egg dishes from their "light food" menu. My personal favorite is the anda burji, "beaten eggs cooked with onion, ginger, green chilli, tomatoes, coriander leaves, green peas and spices." The punjabi omelet sandwich is quite good as well. I believe they open at 11.
