Excellent Brunch in Boston?? (not american style)

Hi all,
looking for a very nice brunch/breakfast in the city.
not looking for american style (pancakes/waffles/english muffin), but something a bit more unusual.
For a weekday.

  1. Are you looking for something with waiter service, or ordering at a counter? Boston proper or are you flexible?

    Sofra has amazing breakfast - it's in Cambridge/Watertown and you order at the counter, but I couldn't recommend it more highly.

    Veggie Galaxy in Cambridge also has a more atypical menu. Don't expect any bacon though!

      Hi, thanks!

      Waiter service is preferred, and a nice atmosphere would be a great bonus.

      Not looking for Bacon,
      looking for nice surprising variety, and not the usual stuff (omlette, waffle)...

    2. Family restaurant in Brookline Village serves Turkish breakfast, meza style.

          i really like istanbulu but they start serving at 11 so it works only if you're planning brunch for a weekday after 11 and they are closed on Tuesdays.

          1. finally we went to "eastern standard" and had their breakfast.

            they serve it on weekdays until 10:30.

            the Eggs Benedict were OK.
            the cappuccino was mediocre.

            wouldn't go back.
