Fun Brunch for a Group

What is a fun spot for Brunch for a group of 10 please? Anywhere in Boston or Cambridge. Casual and where reservations are taken please.

  1. Take a look at my discussion of the Stanhope Grille in this thread: .

    Fun is not an adjective I'd necessarily associate with the place, but you could reserve the wine room and make your own fun.

    1. Sounds like you are going to have some teens with you. You could consider Big City in Allston. It's basically a pleasant bar atmosphere with some pool tables. The menu is pretty good, big portions and reasonable, and the few times I've been there, I've seen young teens playing pool with their parents.

      Be forewarned, though, that they are pretty loose about opening at 10 (give or take 20 minutes.)

      Good luck navigating the confusing website.

      Warning, menu took forever to load.

        There are two teens 17/16 and adults from other parts of the world so we seek something memorable vs ordinary. A bar atmosphere sounds fun but not for this group. Great food and atmosphere paramount.

        1. re: luci

          Big City definitely is not great food and atmosphere. Much more casual. The two other rec's sound really good. The Intrigue Cafe on the waterfront in Boston has a beautiful view, outdoor seating if the weather is good, and a decent brunch for $18.95 if you need to keep the cost down. It's fun to walk around the area, too. Be forewarned, though, that they very quickly sweep all the food away at 11:30 sharp.

          Edited to include link to another thread.

      2. We had a group of 18 in their 30s 40s and 50s and went to the huge brunch buffet at the Langdon Hotel (use to be the Meridian Hotel). It was great. A nice leisurely brunch with everyone tasting and disvussing everything there was to eat. There's everything from an omelet station, waffle station, carving station, pasta station as well as several tables with salads and many many many other prepared dishes from breakfast choices to a raw bar and sushi to an unbelievable choice of desserts. It's my favorite brunch and I try to go 2-3 times/year. The last time I went, several months ago, it was $49/person.

        1. There is a great new brunch offered at JJ Foley's in the South End. They just started about a month ago and I went last week and loved it. It is a la carte and will not break the bank. They are very amenable there and have been trying to get the brunch off the ground. It is a great option and not a scene like other SE locations.
