Springtime Is Brunchtime

We've got a list of neighborhood spots with all the savory and sweet options for a perfect Sunday


Springtime and brunch just seem to go together. Mother’s Day is around the corner and everyone’s itching to leave the house. Not sure where to go? Here are a handful of restaurants in or around the East Side that have a brunch worth trying.

If brunch for you is more about the drinks than the food, the $15 bottomless mimosas at The Village in the Jewelry District will satisfy. However, if you do need a snack to accompany the bubbles, some Lavender Dusted Lemon Vanilla Pancakes might do the trick. 373 Richmond Street. 228-7222

One Mimosa or Bloody Mary just isn’t going to cut it, right? How about a pitcher instead? That’s exactly what you can get at Doherty’s East Ave Irish Pub. Don’t forget about the Corned Beef and Hash to go with it. 342 East Avenue, Pawtucket. 725-9520

For a side of history with your meal, head to the Modern Diner. You’ll sit inside a historic rail car and dine on favorites like the Custard French Toast that the Food Network dubbed the number one diner dish in America. 364 East Avenue, Pawtucket. 726-8390

If you thought that you couldn’t just roll out of bed and head to breakfast, think again. XO Cafe’s Pajama Brunch encourages diners to sport their comfiest PJs, and in return they are rewarded with a free Mimosa or Bloody Mary. 125 North Main Street. 273-9090

With a recently revamped menu, Kitchen Bar’s brunch game is strong. They’ve got all the traditional eats you expect with elevated options like Shrimp and Grits Benedict, Breakfast Tacos and lunch options like a Lamb Burger and Grilled Cheese. 771 Hope Street. 331-4100
