Good, Cheap Brunch Near Gov Cntr or Aquarium?

Dioneo Feb 19, 2009 05:39 AM

I'm looking to meet some friends from East Boston halfway - and that seems to be Government Center and Aquarium. I admit to knowing very little about brunch in Boston (despite being here for the better part of 9 years) as I much prefer to make it myself. I am looking for something priced in the middle range, probably along the lines of Zaftigs. Any suggestions?

    Sel de la Terre next to the Aquarium has a $21 brunch on Saturday and Sunday.

      Oh wow - that is a set menu? I hadn't realized that. Thank you! I've had a couple of great meals there.

      Kingston Station on Kingston Street has a good brunch. Most dishes are $10 or so.

        I've never tried it, but Kinsale also has breakfast/brunch on the weekends. I'm betting SDLT has the superior food, but Kinsale may be closer in price to Zaftigs. Right across Cambridge St from the Gov't Center T.
