My boyfriend and I will be arriving at Logan at 5:15am after a red-eye from San Jose and will be heading to Plymouth in a rental car. Any recs for a great meal at that crazy time of the morning?

  1. I used to take that flight a lot and always enjoyed Sonsie on Newbury.There was somethinh fun avout hitting a "nightspot" at 7 AM; which it will be abbythe time you get a carluggage. Website shows they're still open; but double check.

    Sure there are diners/breajfast soys in East/South Boston that cater to early birds too.

    1. If you don't want to get too far off the track to your destination, you might try Mike's City Diner in the South End. It opens at 6am, and offers a first-rate diner breakfast. It's only a few blocks off the Southeast Expressway, near the corner of Washington St and Mass Ave. Street parking is usually easy then, too.

      1. Arthur & Pat's in Marshfield has a great breakfast service. They are on your way to Plymouth (about 2/3 of the way down), and open at 6:30a if I am not mistaken. Your timing could work out perfectly.

          Um... Hasn't Arthur & Pat's closed for the season?

            I think you're right: April or May to October.

              I thought so. I ate there on Oct. 30 -- meandering down to Duxbury to see Rosanne Cash -- and I was hearing a lot of "See you next spring!" and the like.

        2. If your plane gets delayed or you don't mind waiting a little while, I'm pretty sure the new Caffe Nuovo on Salem St. in the North End starts serving at 7 a.m. on week days. We've only been once, but enjoyed it. Very nice space, good service and well-prepared food. Unfortunately, they don't seem to have much of a web presence, so info is hard to find.

          Then you could go to Modern Pastry and get cannolis for dessert.

          Caffe Nuovo 76 Salem St. Boston MA (857) 753-4615

          1. you're going to want to take I93 and I'd stick to Mike's City Diner - you'll be able to park that early, the breakfast is fine, and the entrance to I93 is close. I wouldn't go into the North End with a car even at 7AM and expect to find parking.

              Thanks much for the suggestions. Caffe Nuovo looks cool but Mike's City Diner is probably more realistic since I will probably not want to deal with parking in the North End as tempting as it might be...
