a restaurant with a bar will also work, as long as there's music and a bar atmosphere...

Bar & food in Cambridge/Boston?

Hi,

looking for a nice place with bar, cocktails and good food.
Celebrating a friend's birthday and we are 3 mommies (have not been out for a girls night in a couple of months...)
I know it is a lot to ask, but also need a good atmosphere (I am not into having a TV screen in front of my face when I finally get to have a night off...)

Help!

A really good high quality brunch?

Thanks everyone for your answers.
I will try your suggestion and will come back to report :-)

A really good high quality brunch?

What so you recommend to a foodie that is on the hunt for an excellent brunch?

My test for a quality restaurant brunch is - freshly baked bread.

Lately we tried the weekend brunch at "Abe and Louis" in back bay.
it wasn't too bad but I don't appreciate it when I am served sliced bread from a supermarket. Good service and nicely made eggs are good qualities, but not enough...

so... any great ideas??

Excellent Brunch in Boston?? (not american style)

finally we went to "eastern standard" and had their breakfast.

they serve it on weekdays until 10:30.

the Eggs Benedict were OK.
the cappuccino was mediocre.

wouldn't go back.

what is the single best restaurant you've been to in Boston area?

feel like I need to start exploring based only on recommendations, and not just drop in, because I find a lot of disappointments...

I am rather new her :-)

Hi, thanks!

Waiter service is preferred, and a nice atmosphere would be a great bonus.

Not looking for Bacon,
looking for nice surprising variety, and not the usual stuff (omlette, waffle)...

Excellent Brunch in Boston?? (not american style)

Hi all,
looking for a very nice brunch/breakfast in the city.
not looking for american style (pancakes/waffles/english muffin), but something a bit more unusual.
For a weekday.

Thanks!

Excellent Cappuccino in the Boston area?

Hi Experts :-)
I am rather new to the area (6 months) and still looking for perfect coffee...

Some time ago we found the place called "the thinking cup" downtown on Tremont street (see picture) - the Barista was an artist.

Please direct me to the best places around here (not necessarily in the city) that will serve coffee at such a high standard.

Cheers

pretty high standards here, too... ;-)

I also am blamed for being used to the european baking.
I have not found yet a bakery to fall for, since moving here.

Have been to Tatte and liked the pastry I tried.
too bad the coffee isn't great.

I am taking all your tips and will report back
Thanks!
