      I LOVE Stella - great suggestion.
      Sonsie on newbury
      garden of eden in the south end
      metropolis is great but no outdoor seating

        I think the Garden of Eden is awful. When I moved to the South End 4 years ago I tried it a few times, good location, nice patio in a good location. BIG mistake. I gave them a few chances, but the food and service have been consistently been awful. I only go there now as a last resort. The don't even do basic food well. The only people you see eating there are B&T and tourists.

        Hammersley's patio is a MUCH better option.

          I ate at Garden of Eden a few weeks ago. Had great, very attentive service and an extremely tasty meal (if a bit on the overpriced side). Perhaps it's improved since your last visit?

          What does "B&T" mean? Bridge and Tunnel?

    2. Stephanies, on Newbury has outside seating. But best brunches I've had have been at Sound Bites in Ball Square, and East Coast Grill, Inman Sq. Also Tremont 647 still has a great brunch. Eastern Standard has outside dining and a good brunch.

      1. My 2 cents says that the better brunch places don't offer outside dining, which includes many of the examples mentioned above.

        Off the top of my head, I've liked the brunches at Metropolis, Blue Room, Aquitaine, Johnny D's, East Coast Grill, Sibling Rivalry, and Sound Bites (none of which offer outside dining, though the last does open its front windows). Also enjoyed Casa Romero, which does have an enclosed patio area. Henrietta's Table does offer Sunday brunch and may also open up their outside patio for it, but I've never been for that meal -- liked their lunches, though.

          I seem to recall that Blue Room has some tables outside?

        2. Stephanie's has a good brunch, but the wait can be a pain. If you feel like venturing to the South End, Stella (Washington Street) has a great brunch with outdoor seating as does Rocca (Harrison).

          1. Thanks to everyone's reply-I had a lovely entree at Stella's today. The outside dining was perfect and all the staff were so friendly. I loved the "home fries"-very different from those in the South. I would highly recommend tis place again.
