Bostonians, are you tired of eating uninspired brunch fare? Good news: popular Boston food bloggers have helped us put together an eclectic list of the finest brunch spots in the city! From a raw bar perched atop a hotel rooftop to a vibrant eatery’s North African specialty dishes, these restaurant brunches are truly memorable. Today’s post features Kerrie Urban of Urban Foodie Finds, Rachel Blumenthal of Fork it Over, Boston, and Renee of Eat.Live.Blog. Bring your appetite to one of these restaurants to see what the buzz is about!

The Café 15 Arlington Street

“A rooftop brunch at the top floor of the Taj hotel with a gorgeous view of the Public Garden. Buffet includes a raw bar, glass of champagne and plenty of breakfast and lunch dishes.” –Kerrie Urban

Neighborhood Restaurant & Bakery 25 Bow St (in Somerville)

“This unassuming spot in Somerville’s Union Square is best experienced in the summer, when the pastel umbrella-bedecked, grape vine-covered patio opens up. Diners can snack on complimentary coffee and pastries while waiting in the inevitably long line. The menu features terrifyingly huge portions of breakfast staples with a Portuguese twist, but the best part is the legendary cream of wheat (yes, really) that comes with every meal.” –Rachel Lee Blumenthal

Mistral223 Columbus Ave

“One of the best high-end brunches in the city. Generous portions, with a great mix of sweet and savory, and breakfast and lunch options. The made-to-order doughnuts and cinnamon rolls are definitely worth waiting for!” –Kerrie Urban

The Blue Room – 1 Kendall Square (in Cambridge)

…what makes a buffet stand out like the Blue Room? Well I am glad you asked! First, let’s talk set-up. You will not find pans of food set out to be dry on top and burnt from sterno lights on the bottom. The Blue Room’s buffet is set up directly on the kitchen line. Each dish is made in a small batch and served in skillets, platters or baking dishes. While this does mean that if you time it wrong, some things will be empty, it also means that a fresh batch will be out shortly thereafter.” –Renee

The Beehive – 541 Tremont Street

“Great bohemian atmosphere with live Jazz / Funk music. [The Beehive has an] eclectic menu featuring dishes like short rib eggs benedict and shakshuka (a North African egg and tomato dish).” –Kerrie Urban
