Breakfast in Boston

Where should we get breakfast in Boston tomorrow?

I'm heading into Boston tomorrow (Sunday) with some friends for a day of various activities. We're parking at an Orange Line stop at taking the T into the city. We have a commitment out on the Silver Line at noon, so vicinity to there would be nice, but at least it needs to be within walking distance from a T stop.

As for breakfast, we're not very picky. Would be nice to not spend an hour or two waiting. Cheap is good too, but breakfast is pretty cheap in general.

If you want to hit the red line, I'm a big fan of Panificio on Charles St off the Charles/MGH stop (in fact, I'm there every Sunday morning). The Paramount down the street always has a huge long line outside, so apparently it's good, but I've never been. Both of those are relatively inexpensive. If you do feel like splurging, for $35 you can have the all-you-can-eat buffet and menu brunch at the Liberty Hotel (next to the Charles/MGH stop), which is delicious.

Anywhere you go, the earlier the better. Brunch places tend to have much longer waiting times starting around 10:30 or so.

Mike's - 1714 Washington St, South End
Hei la Moon if you'd consider dim sum - 88 Beach St, Chinatown
Appleton Bakery Cafe - 123 Appleton St, South End

I like the Paramount better than Panificio, but both are good as olinerd suggests.

They just opened a Friendly Toast in Cambridge. Given that my family regularly drives an hour to eat at the one in Portsmouth, I'd highly recommend it.

Which Silver line? If you taking the one that goes to Dudley station (and not the airport), Mike's Diner at the corner of Washington St. and Mass ave do a great breakfast, and the best Corner Beef Hash ever!


On a nice day like today there'll be a bit of wait for brunch.
