Start parade day off with one of our favorite spots in Dorchester for brunch! Dbar serves brunch from 11am to 3pm. Right now we’re loving their drunk & naked lobster omelette with a champagne butter glaze.
We also can’t wait to hang out on the patio at 224 Boston after the parade. Lucy’s will be serving their brunch from 10am to 3pm – we’re loving their pigs in a waffle sammy.
