Love brunch? Stay up to date on Boston's best brunches and upcoming Brunches of Boston events.
While The Sinclair in Harvard Square is mostly known as an alternative rock/indie concert venue, we were surprised to learn that they also serve a killer brunch! The restaurant part of the building is very modernly decorated with unique lighting and chic, simple furniture—an ultimate gastropub feel. This isn’t a place to come hungover with your friends or to Sunday Funday. The vibe is much more relaxing and intimate, which is complimented by the soothing soft rock tunes that play through the speakers. The menu is of average size, but it still gives you enough variance to make your final decision a tough one. The options range from typical entrees like benedicts and waffles, to more unique items like turkey hash and vegetable quiche. One menu item stood out above the rest: the Waffle Burger. (See previous post for picture). A juicy burger with cheddar dripping down the side, topped with crispy bacon and a sunny side up egg, all squished together with two waffles. WARNING: don’t attempt to pick this thing up, stick to a fork and knife! The entire dish is a decadent combination of fresh, savory flavors, and as you can see they don’t skimp out on the fries either. The Breakfast Tacos have an average taste and are served as a relatively large portion too. The home fries that come with the tacos are little bites of heaven—they’re almost burnt on the outside but soft and mushy when you bite into them. Prices are on the slightly more expensive side, but still doable. Most dishes are around $14 (both the Waffle Burger and Tacos are $15). We’ll definitely be back, hopefully during the summer when their outdoor patio is open as well.
