Easy weekend lunch near the Museum of Science - impossible?

This seems like an impossibility to me, but I'm meeting (mostly older) family at the Science Museum this afternoon and they've asked for an "easy light lunch" (i.e. not brunch) nearby. I'm assuming pretty much everything in Cambridge will be brunch-centric and either be booked or have a wait on a Sunday afternoon, but is there anything I'm missing? We can drive within reason (though should not stray too far from 93N), but we'll have two cars, so parking would have to be easy. I was going to propose Area Four, but it looks like they have brunch on Sunday too, and don't take reservations for fewer than 8 (we'll be 6).

  1. Za in Kendall Square? They don't serve brunch and validated parking is $1 per hour for the first three hours:

    1. You could walk to the nearby galleria mall, several option there or if walking is not possible, their parking garage is reasonable also.
