A friend from CA is visiting for a few hours tomorrow (Sun. 8/15). I will pick her up at BOS 7:30am and she needs to be in Gloucester mid-afternoon.
We're not early breakfast eaters so we'll go home and hang out a while (Newton). I'm familiar with Johnny's, Baker's Best. What's your recommendation for a place we can have a casual leisurely brunch with great food choices.... either west suburban.... or somewhere on 95 on our way north (Beverly? Manchester-by-the-sea?) ....or in Gloucester? THANKS!

      Are you looking for a buffet brunch? If not, I'd recommend Sugar Magnolia's on Main St. in Gloucester, excellent chow. They close at 1pm on Sunday's.

        Tresca's in Watertown (park in the lot behind Stellina's and CVS) has huge portions of great food (try the sausage omelet).

          Thanks to those who have answered. We don't want a buffet, so these three are possible. Additional suggestions are welcomed.

            if you can wait until 11am, Craigie on Main in Cambridge has a very good non-buffet Sunday brunch
