Brunch Your Way through Boston - Downtown Crossing | By Jeff Hamilton

The Merchant is sure to be your new go to Downtown Crossing brunch spot. This location is a bustling bar at night but is home to a delicious brunch Saturdays from 11-3 and Sundays from 10:30-3.

What to order: Our pick is the Big Breakfast, featuring house made breakfast sausage and bacon, 2 eggs, homefries and a cinnamon waffle, sure to leave you wanting more... and by more, we don’t mean you’ll feel like eating again anytime soon. As it’s name suggests, this truly is BIG and will leave you full as can be.

The Sunday City Brunch at Cafe Fleuri is a deluxe brunch buffet brought to diners by Executive Chef, Mark Sapienza with a focus on New England flavors and locally sourced ingredients. The Buffet also features interactive buffet stations with global inspirations like hand made sushi and crepes! Finally end your meal with a trip through the Chocolate Bar, where all of your sweet tooth fantasies are real.

What to Order: Anything you want! They have it all!

This American Bistro in the Four Seasons offers a European style of cooking the American dishes you know and love. The restaurant has a modern layout yet is still warm and inviting.

What to order:  We recommend the Walnut Maple Waffle, with cinnamon butter and local maple syrup, or the Artisan Burger, composed of an 8 oz kobe beef burger, onion brioche, north country bacon, onion jam and fourme d’ambert. This burger is huge, but leave some room for the fries they are too good to waste!

This Modern Steakhouse provides a sophisticated yet comfortable and relaxed atmosphere, the perfect backdrop for your next Sunday brunch! Chef and Owner Jamie Mammano aims to provide signature steakhouse dishes while putting his own spin on them.

What to Order: If you came for a steak then the Ranchers Sunny Side Eggs and Ribeye will not disappoint; two sunnyside up eggs, atop a 12 oz. ribeye cooked to perfection and served with tomato, avocado and salsa verde. If you aren't a steak lover then we suggest the French Toast; fluffy brioche bread topped with caramelized banana.


Honorable Mention:

This Downtown, casual counter service joint is where your belgian waffle dreams will come true. Saus is known for their made-from-scratch menu consisting of 15 dipping “saus”es, sausages, and handcut fries/poutine. But don't let that fool you, they have the brunch of champions.

What to order: If you are in the mood for something sweet, let us introduce you to the Liege Waffle; a sweet waffle, with a variety of “saus”es, such as berry berry and salted caramel. If you’re feeling adventurous you can even top your waffles with ice cream. For those who are looking for something more savory, Saus has something for you too. We suggest the Mini Chicken N’ Waffles or the Green Eggs (& Ham) featuring a deep fried egg.
