When the weekend is wide open and you have endless time to linger over eggs Benedict, syrup-laden French toast, and piping hot coffee, nothing suits the day better than brunch, and Boston really embraces this delicious meal. In normal times, brunch is perhaps best enjoyed with friends on a restaurant patio with endless bloody marys and mimosas, but many restaurants have expanded their takeout and delivery services during the pandemic, allowing diners to recreate a bit of that brunch magic at home.
Here’s a sampling of excellent Boston-area brunch options currently available for takeout and/or delivery, a mix of neighborhood mainstays and some newer spots worth exploring.
Please note that a number of Boston restaurants have resumed dine-in service, and the level of service offered is indicated on each map point. However, this should not be taken as endorsement for dining in, as there are still safety concerns: For updated information on coronavirus cases in the area, please visit the Massachusetts coronavirus website.
Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.
