Black Rose any good for breakfast?

Will be staying at the Long Wharf and want a breakfast place, close-by. Just regular eggs, sausage (bangers), bacon....nothing spectacular, but a short walk.
Any comments?

  1. Don't know anything about Black Rose except that I'm a little scared to eat anything out of their kitchen. I'd take a walk over to Anthony's in the north end, 5 minutes.

    1. I'd say that Black Rose isn't good for anything, breakfast included.

      1. Not many decent non-hotel options for breakfast near there. Max's Deli, on Milk St. at the corner of Batterymarch, is fine for a cheap, basic breakfast.

        1. Might not fit with what you're looking for, but if you walk over to Dewey Square (near South Station) you'll find one of the Clover food trucks serving breakfast. Excellent coffee and an interesting array of offerings.

          Location info:

          1. I love Clover for lunch but find breakfast to be a very limited, not so great menu (that lukewarm, soft-boiled egg making up the breakfast sandwich is a real turn-off for me). A little bit further (10-15 min walk) will get you to Flour on Sleeper St. for a real breakfast treat, and Sip in Post Office Square is also really good, usually with a quiche of the day and a warm pressed breakfast sandwich special.

              I love that $3 breakfast sandwich at Clover, perfect soft boiled egg, ripe tomato, and sharp cheddar on a nice pita.

                Second that. Pretty much my ideal breakfast sandwich. Love the popovers too. The Clover muffins I cannot stand.
