Tired of the usual brunch routine? Try switching it up at one of these local favorites. From savory meals to sweet surprises, (and much-needed hair(s) of the dog), there’s something for everyone!

Lucy’s American Tavern
13 Granite Ave
From 10am to 3pm, hungry weekenders can snack on a waffle a la mode or sip on an executive mimosa. Named after one of Dorchester’s most influential residents from the 1800s, Lucy’s is a spot for locals and newcomers alike.

Dbar
1236 Dorchester Ave
Love brioche French toast? How about huevos rancheros caliente? Then the creative Sunday brunch menu at Dbar is calling your name.  The fun starts at 11 and the bar is open all day.

Dorset Hall
367 Neponset Ave
Head down to Dorset for its weekend brunch 11am-2pm every Saturday and Sunday. Try the full Irish breakfast for a taste of home!

Lower Mills Tavern
2269 Dot. Ave
How does fresh baked cheddar biscuits, breakfast pizza, and Maine blueberry pancakes. What’s brunch without a cocktail? Order up THE IRISH made with Irish whiskey, maple liqueur, cinnamon simple, hot coffee; topped with chocolate whipped cream & dash of salt!

Savin Bar + Kitchen
112 Savin Hill Ave
Let’s do brunch at SB + K! Join them every Saturday and Sunday starting at 10am for favorites like the smoked salmon benedict and a good ole’ fashioned three egg omelet.

Specialty brunch cocktails include the Eye Opener made with coconut rum, cold brew iced coffee and chocolate whipped cream, the Bowery Bloody, and the Paloma Riff with tequila, pink grapefruit liquer and ruby red grapefruit juice!

Ashmont Grill
555 Talbot Ave
If you’ve hit the town hard the night before, the Ashmont Grill is there to welcome you with open arms. Opt for the trainwreck omelette and a big bucket of bubbles, and you’ll be back to life in no time.

McKenna’s Café

This laidback spot is a local favorite. Serving up pancakes all day, and classics for breakfast and lunch, it’s a must-see Dorchester spot.
