Breakfast near Millenium Bostonian
My boyfriend and I are going to Boston this weekend and are in need of a recommendation for a place to eat Sunday breakfast before we catch our flight home. We are staying at the Millenium Bostonian and would like to eat somewhere close. Suggestions?
That's a tough location for breakfast chow on the weekends. I don't know when you're leaving, but Sel de la Terre is quite close, and does a great brunch starting at 11am.
You're also a short walk from the North End, where (I believe) the North Street Grille does a weekend breakfast (I have not been myself).
Another option is coffee and pastries from any of several worthy North End bakeries. My personal favorite is The Modern, with a special mention to Maria's for its sfogliatelle.
I generally avoid the restaurants of Fanueil Hall like the plague, and know little about their weekend hours. One possibility (again, of which I have no personal experience) is Steve's in the food court. Its much-older Newbury Street sibling is a passable Greek-American restaurant that does diner-ish breakfasts.
There are always hotel breakfasts. The closest one I can recommend from experience is at the Boston Harbor Hotel, about a ten minute walk from your hotel. The Intrigue Cafe has a weekend breakfast buffet that is expensive (~$25) and pretty standard in its offerings, not extraordinary. It does have lovely harbor views and a patio you can sit outside on if it's nice enough.
If you have time for 15-minute walk, head over to Charles Street on Beacon Hill to the Beacon Hill Hotel and Bistro, which I think does a nicer breakfast and later on, brunch. You could also do the more-casual Paramount if you're all the way over there, but breakfast lines can be long on weekends.
