      Although I would not recommend for dinner, Helen's Garden does a really nice job with brunch. Try the fresh squeezed OJ, the mexican eggs, or anything they may have on special. Cute atmosphere also at the bar and upstairs.

        Clementine, Rocket to Venus (Sunday brunch blitz), Blue Moon (if you have time to wait in line), Morning Edition (if you have time to wait for food). Really depends on whether you go for lots of mimosas/bloodies or the food. Little Havanas and Mother's (among others) have all you can drink brunch deals.

        Forget a restaurant brunch! Do what a lot of the locals do and get yourself over the the farmers mkt under the JFX. There's a wide range of prepared food to choose from including omelets, crepes, donuts, pastries, coffee, etc. Snag a table and people watch. Much more fun than being served mimosas somewhere!

          Oh Yum! If you like mushrooms, the mushroom fritters from the mushroom lady (across from the omelette stand) are achingly good.

            Hull Street Blues has a really good brunch. I also think Mothers serves up a wonderful brunch (federal hill).

              Hull Street blues is small and personal. They have a buffet that gets frequently replenished, with breakfast foods, smoked fish, lunch entrees and carved sugar glazed ham (cooked in-house). One thing I like is that the pancake. french toast/ waffle special is cooked to order, and will be relenished when you are ready. Bloody Mary's are strong. Either book in advance or get there early on Sunday.

              I've always enjoyed brunch at the Waterfront in Fells. The crab hash is great + all you can dring mimosas/bloodies/screwdrivers. Also Metropolitan in Fed. Hill, but I think they are still renovating.

                Abacrombie is a bit pricey, but worth it.

                  My favorite brunch of all is at B- their egg dishes are incredible, and its always been pleasently occupied with little and often no wait.
                  Also really like the brunch at Ale Mary's in Fells.
                  Also have enjoyed brunch at the new dangerously delicous Pie shop in hampden (they are still futzing with the menu specifics but the quiche and savory pies are wonderful soakers up of Saturday night activities)

                    Gertrude's at the BMA serves brunch 10:30am - 3:00 pm on Saturdays & Sundays The ambiance is lovely & the food is great (plenty of choices on the menu). The bread pudding with caramel sauce alone is worth the trip!
