      I didn't know Pops did breakfast - is it every day or just brunch on the weekend?

        Sorry, I should have specified: Pops, Metropolis, Tremont 647, and Union only serve poached eggs for their weekend brunches.

      Add Beacon Hill Bistro to the mid-range. Nothing that will blow your mind, but it's good for that Charles St. area.

        When Picante Grill had a place in Davis Square, I used to get their "huevos rancheros" all the time - eggs poached in salsa. Yum. I assume that the Central Square location still offers this weekend breakfast.

          It does, but don't try to push it with the timing. They tend to shut down when they feel like it, not when the sign says brunch is over.

          Plough and Stars on Mass Ave in Cambridge does delicious poached eggs over pork hash with hollandaise on Saturdays and Sunday.... It's so good I've never gotten anything else off the brunch menu!

            I thought Beacon Hill Hotel & Bistro's poached eggs were marvelous. Really, very good.

              My house!!! Growing up we called them dropped eggs. I think the historic Capitol Diner in downtown Lynn serves them. It is such a neat little place. Great and diverse specials on Saturday morns like eggnog french toast and gingerbread pancakes and eggs Benedict.

                along with deluxe town diner, zaftigs, charlies, and mikes, victors in watertown does breakfast poached eggs - served with their very good lokanico its a treat. i only wish they used better bread (the reason i give deluxe town diner the nod for best breakfast)

                Deluxe Town Diner's smoked salmon benedict is one of my comfort food go-to's.

                  Is their hollandaise made from scratch - how would you rate it?
