    11.95 Prix Fixe Brunch is awesome! Coffee, juice, cinnamon bun, and choice of omelette or crepe! Note: Aquitaine is now closed for 3 months for renovations!

    Wow, cheap brunch special with unlimited coffee! I liked the French toast but they put the bacon in with the heavy cream and fruit, which I did not appreciate since bacon should always be crispy!

    Great poutine (sometimes on the brunch menu, but always available at lunch) and waffles with a hint of lemon. Well-priced for brunch, and worth the wait if there is one!

    Really cute Parisian cafe atmosphere. Best eggs Benedict I've ever had! Great truffle frites and French onion soup too.

    This South End bistro offers classic French cuisine in an intimate, cozy setting. Be sure to try the Soup a L'Oignon and the Croque Madame sandwich.

    Some of the best PEI Mussels around, and you can't go wrong with the steak frite -- make sure you get this garlic aioli though.

    Best brunch I've ever had in Boston. The salmon Benedict with a side of avocado is delicious. The bloody Mary isn't bad either. Mmm

    I don't usually like bread pudding, but Aquitaine's is amazing! The rissotto special is good, but is a smaller portion than everything else so don't get it if you're hungry.

    Try the Burger - Smoked bacon, Boursin cheese, toasted brioche bun and pommes frites. This cheese needs to be used on burgers more often.

    Make a reservation before 6:30pm to snag ab unbelievable early bird deal - $29.99 for 3 amazing courses plus a glass of wine! Imagine steak tar tar, steak frites, and a delectable creme brûlée!

    A great brunch spot in the South End. Definitely catch the "Early Bird" brunch specials if you're an early riser.

    Fab brunch. Brioche French toast + Benedict provencal + bloody's + a lover to split it all with is a perfect weekend day.

    Pre-theatre menu from 5:30 - 6:30 but you have to ask for it. Also the PT menu is really out of date - the upcharges and ingredients have not been updated so be prepared.

    $10 brunch only served between 10 & 11am in Sundays was amazing. Best cinnamon roll I've ever had.

    Avoid the Bloody Mary; it's strong but has absolutely no spice whatsoever. Food was solid though, including the cinnamon rolls and salmon Benedict.

    Try the Croque Maigret - Duck confit and gruyere Parisian pressed sandwich with tarragon mustard

    If you're a Costco Member you can buy $100 gift certificate good at Aquitaine, Metropolis Cafe, Gaslight, or Union Park for $80. Want more savings? Before 6:30pm a 3 course meal & wine is $30
