The Miracle of Science is a fun and quirky eatery walking distance from the MIT campus. It's a relatively small restaurant with an open kitchen and a massive drawing of a mock period table of elements that serves as the menu on the wall. The vibe is definitely hipster, laid-back and has nerd-appeal. We imagine Sheldon from the Big Bang Theory would be a Miracle of Science regular if he lived in Cambridge. The brunch menu is small to medium in size and full of primarily egg options. Pictured here is the breakfast wrap and the two egg omelette with bean salad, cheddar, mushrooms and chicken sausage. The food taste is good with nice seasoning and balance of flavor. The homefries despite being on the mushy side are delicious. We especially like the sautéed onions mixed in with the potatoes. The eggs are a little too flat and lifeless for our liking but as mentioned are well seasoned and tasty. The portion sizes are on the small side; in fact we scraped our plates clean and still had room to grab a pastry at the Flour down the street after. However, the prices are unbeatable with everything on the menu falling under $10. Overall this is a solid spot for a unique, casual brunch across the river.
