North End breakfast?

nseton Dec 26, 2012 05:18 PM

Hi everyone - my wife and I are going to find ourselves in the North End this Sunday morning and were thinking of finding a good breakfast spot. We'd be up for anything - from a great greasy spoon to pastries and coffee - though we'd probably rather not do a big elaborate brunch. Any thoughts you have would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Anthony's on the Waterfront or North Street Grille - the former is great food but served with the plastic silverware, the latter is fancier - not sure of their sunday hours so check.

      Can always get a freshly made breakfast sandwich and decent brewed coffee at the Golden Goose Market near Commercial Street.

          North End Grill is good for sweet (great pancakes and french toast) but Cozy Corner on Salem street is my go to for eggs and omelettes. Get the homemade hot sauce.

            +1 for Cozy Corner. Good people, good food.

            I'll throw Ferrara's into the mix as well.

            I have had several great breakfasts at Cafe Pompeii on Hanover St. Everything is good there, but I particularly like the strawberry crepes. I am sure they probably do pastry as well..but I've never had them. Their coffee..at least in my opinion..is the best in the North End.

              Thanks everyone! We ended up at North Street Grille this morning and enjoyed it very much. Definitely a cute place, not pretentious, and we were very happy with our scrambled egg sandwich and Italian sausage, peppers and onions omelet. We'll keep the other recommendations in mind for next time too. Happy New Year!
