Breakfast near Portland St?

Looking for breakfast ideas (kid friendly) near Portland Street, or on way to Science Museum. Extra credit for gluten free menu options. Thx!

  1. I assume you mean Portland St in Boston not Cambridge? Both are reasonably close to the MoS.

    1. Not a great area for sit down breakfast. Most of the places cater to the area workers.
      There's an Au Bon Pain (the back door is on Portland) that has a seating area and a waterfall in the lobby that kids might enjoy. On Canal St. Bonne Chance has a few tables and makes homey breakfast sandwiches and peanut butter and jelly toast. These places are busy during the morning commute so you're better off being there after say 9AM.

      1. On Canal, maybe Mulligan's Deli? They had, when last I was there, a few non-wheat choices.

        The other option is the Starbucks in the MOS proper.
