Local chefs deliver the breakfast-lunch goods – like decadent eggs Benedict, brioche French toast, raw bar platters and more – to help extend the AM hours into the afternoon. Below, some Saturday and Sunday spots (and even some every day spots!) where you can unwind with a mimosa and your favorite brunch dishes.

Start with an iced coffee horchata before diving into meal options like huevos rancheros, chilaquiles or a chorizo & egg torta. Come one, come all, come hungry.
Enjoy panoramic views of the harbor and city skyline over brunch at Charlestown's Pier 6. There are lots of brunch classics to from which to choose or, if the all that water put you in the mood for seafood, you can opt for selections from the raw bar or go all-in on a lobster roll.
