As the air outside chills and the snow begins to fall, there is no better way to hibernate than to treat yourself to a cozy winter brunch on the weekend. Here's why Brownstone in Back Bay should be your next go-to place when you're on the hunt for brunch this winter. 

1. The Cozy Atmosphere Will Shield You From Boston’s Winter 

As soon as you enter Brownstone’s doors on Dartmouth Street in Back Bay, you will feel as if you’ve entered a welcoming oasis from the cold outdoors. The interior is adorned with wood, brick, and warm colors, that will have you feeling like you’re lounging beside your own fireplace as you indulge in their concise list of well-executed menu items.

And to sweeten the deal, brunch at Brownstone doesn’t shy away from holiday cheer. To embrace the season, they’ve added festive specials like “Jingle Juice” to their menu, and the restaurant is decorated with white lights and pine to further develop the holiday spirit. So you can get your dose of holiday spirit when you brunch at Brownstone. 

2. A Menu That Will Appeal to Your Sweet Tooth

Any good brunch menu features a few indulgences that can satisfy your weekend sweet tooth. Brownstone certainly doesn’t disappoint in this category, offering a plethora of pancakes and french toast options. If you’re looking for a classic, their stacks (offered in banana, strawberry, blueberry, and chocolate chip) will certainly satisfy you.

Or if you’re looking to spice up your brunch routine, the Crunchy French Toast is a must-try. French toast sticks are coated in frosted flakes before fried which provides a crispy texture, and are served alongside blueberry compote and whipped cream for your dipping delight.

The F.C.C.F.T “Fried Chicken with Crunchy French Toast” takes this Brownstone classic up a notch by pairing the Crunchy French Toast with fried chicken and maple syrup. Who needs chicken and waffles?

3. Egg-celent Savory Options

If you’re in the mood for something a little more protein-packed than pancakes and french toast, the variety of egg dishes at Brownstone means there is something for everyone. Tried and true brunch classics like Eggs Benedict are advanced with creations like the “Crab Cake Benedict” or the “Pulled Pork Benny”.

And for the cold winter season, you can’t beat the inventive “Duck and Sweet Potato Hash” which is filled with tender duck meat and autumnal sweet potatoes that become coated in the silky egg yolk once you dive in.

4. You Can be Brunchin’ for Days

Brunch is clearly the best meal of the day, and you will not need to sacrifice this sacred tradition at Brownstone even if you have other weekend plans, due to their convenient seven day brunch.

And if you happen to wake up late, Brownstone is still the place to go, with their expansive lunch and dinner options. And you don’t have to worry about ending your night short, as Brownstone has a full bar and a late night menu until 12 AM.

So, next time you’re in the mood for a well-priced, traditional brunch place with an elevated menu during this winter season, make sure to give Brownstone a look.
