Worth it for the view alone, this jewel box of a restaurant towers above the Back Bay, right on the corner of Newbury and the Public Garden. At brunch, guests will fill the airy space so that they can sink their teeth into some Panettone French Toast and Carbonara Scramble, while taking in the view, which makes a daytime visit essential. For brunch-goers who favor lunch vibes over breakfast flavors, Contessa lists their famous Spicy Lobster Capellini on the menu, and if you’re ordering lunch, why not add the sparkling Spritz Contessa?
Brunch is one of the best times of the week, in our opinion. You snag a seat at your favorite spot with your besties or favorite person, dig into creative combos of lunch and breakfast foods, day drink like a champ and catch up on the week. There’s only one thing that can make brunch better, and that’s killer views and warm sun on your shoulders at one of Boston's best rooftops. That’s right, we’re talking about rooftop brunch, and these are where we go to get our sunny day brunch on. And, once you’ve tried them all, check out Boston’s best breakfast in the city for a weekday treat and perhaps Boston's best coffee shops too!
