Brunch at Beat Brasserie with Boston Brunchers

I’ve heard of the Boston Brunchers for a while now, a group that connects bloggers with businesses during my favorite meal of the week! However, typically, my Sundays have been reserved for one thing and that one thing is either a trail run or a long run that makes it hard for me to make it to brunch on time. However, this year with well the 84 inches of snow we have and my heel drama, I’ve found myself with nothing but time.

And that’s how I found myself jumping into a Lyft ride to go to Harvard Square. With all the snow, I almost missed Beat Brasserie (formerly Beat Hotel) as it’s almost a hidden gem below the Gap smacked in the middle of Harvard Square.  If you’re familiar with the Beehive in the South End, the vibe is very similar in a chic bohemian style if those two words could go together.

At the front there is a stage that has Jazz on Sunday 10AM-2PM and every evening as well.  The sound works well with the background ambiance, and yet still being able to have conversations without screaming.

The girls and I at my table decided to go a la carte and share all our dishes.

But first things first… Since a long run was out the snow covered window…

This bloody Mary may not be the largest, but it packed quite the punch needed to wake me up.

The girls and I then moved onto the Pumpkin Crumble Coffee Cake. We split this gem four ways which was perfectly satisfying.

Next we each picked out a few entrees to share. We started with the Tomato, Fresh Mozzarella & Basil Omelette, a solid choice

Next came the Bowl Azteca with Adobo-Spiced Quinoa, Tomatillo Salsa, Fresh Corn, Squash, Green Beans, Avocado, Baby Spinach & salmon.

The Salmon was cooked perfectly, but I’m not sure if this is a dish I would order again.

These Wild Flower Honey & Lemon Pancakes were some of the most addictive pancake I’ve had in a while.  Fluffy but packed with a ton of flavor. Beat Brasserie Brunch (7)

We also added a side of lamb sausage!

I saved the best for last, this Braised short rib eggs Benedict is reason alone to visit the Beat Brassiere for brunch!

My only regrets in these  brunches is that my stomach isn’t big enough to fit in more food.  There’s so many more dishes that I hope to try next time I’m in the square, such as Buffalo cauliflower or the smoked salmon Benedict! O well, always great to save something for next time!

  1. It looks like you had a fun time and got to try a bunch of neat dishes. I love going out to restaurants with a lot of people and just sampling things, everyone orders something different. Plus this is a cool way to spend a cold day and get out of a restaurant rut.

  2. Hi, It was great to see you at brunch! It’s a bummer we were at different tables. I wish our table would have ordered the coffee cake and pancakes, those looked so good. We did get the buffalo cauliflower and it was one of my favorite items- so order that next time!
