Breakfast in Boston


We are going to be staying at the Omni Parker House, on school street in boston, and I wanted to find out what are some good breakfast places to hit up. We love all types of food, whether an intimate cafe, or a more busy and loud type of place. So any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, and budget is anything from $10-$30 per person.

thanks, jen

The restaurant at the Parker is quite historic, so a meal there would be great experience, although I'd favor dinner over breakfast. There are several places that serve breakfast further down Tremont Street across from the Boston Common. Or The well-known Paramount on Charles Street, on the other side of Beacon Hill.

We stayed at the Parker House last summer, and our favorite place for breakfast was the Delicato Café, right around the corner. The food is great, and the folks who serve it are very friendly. It's tucked away on City Hall Avenue (which looks rather like an alley), off of School Street. Here's the website, which includes the menus for breakfast and lunch:

At least once head to the Paramount, you will enjoy breakfast there immensely. You aren't far from the North End, you could walk down to Theo's Cozy Corner located at 162 Salem Street. Another good one I'm hearing about lately is Contrata's at 396 Hanover Street.

In the Faneuil Hall Marketplace there's this place called "Philadelphia Steak & Hoagie". For $2.99 you can get 3 eggs, home fries & toast. Where can you go for $2.99 and get that, I ask you! I guess it's really good, a lot of people are catching on to this place lately!

I know you didn't ask about lunch, but where you're staying at the Omni Parker House any way, look for Chacarero's for an awesome Chilean sandwich, (try their chicken first, they're awesome). It's not too far from the Omni Parker House at all, in fact it's at 26 Province Street @ Ordway Place. At lunch time there's long lines, but it moves pretty quick.

Have a wonderful time in Boston!

Agree with everyone. Cafe Delicato is super close to the Omni. Not open on weekends so keep that in mind if it applies.

Paramount is really good and open on the weekends too. It would be a pretty long (20-25 minute) walk from the Omni.

Take a right out of the Omni and Bruegger's Bagel Bakery is down on the left about a 3 minute walk. Right next to the Old Corner Bookstore.

And of course, there's Dunkin Donuts all around. There's one up on Tremont Street heading towards Gov't Center. Maybe a block or two from the Omni.
