Breakfast Near the Intercontinental Hotel

No, I don't usually stay at such a fancy hotel, but the price was too good to pass up.

Having said that, I definitely do not want to eat breakfast at the hotel--the price is over the top. Rather I am looking for a casual place on Sunday morning to have breakfast, not brunch. My son and I are walkers so any place within one mile would be acceptable.

  1. Anthony's Cafe is a good breakfast place..252 Commercial St. take a right out of your hotel and walk about 10 mins. Atlantic Ave turns into Commercial.

    1. You could go to Flour for the amazing sticky buns (or pastries, quiche, egg and cheese sandwich etc).

      1. Mull's diner on East Broadway at the corner of A Street in South Boston. Very popular breakfast spot. Go out the rear door of the hotel and cross the Fort Point Channel by the Children's Museum and take a right. There is a walkway that runs along the side of the Channel and ends about two blocks from Mull's; there are some markers along the way that explain the impact of the big dig in the area and the history of Gillette. Total distance I would guess is about 1 mile. Depending on the time you get there you may have to wait for a table.

        1. re: Fort Point

          Do you know if Mull's does a good corned beef hash? I love that dish and recently had a good 1 at L Street Diner.

          I regularly pass Mull's but haven't been for a while.

              9lives, I've had the cb hash at both diners. Both are decent options, but I would say that L Street's hash is better. I like my hash extra crispy and L Street nailed it. Generous portions as well. Enjoy!

          1. Dim Sum in Chinatown could be a fun experience for you and your sun.
