Last weekend, Miss Niss had the pleasure of joining the Boston Brunchers for Sunday brunch at Puritan and Co in Inman Square. It’s been a long while since the last time I brunched with this wonderful group of bloggers, and I was so excited to see Renee organized another brunch at a new-to-me restaurant.
Immediately upon entering Puritan and Co, I made eye contact with the pastry table.
What other restaurant can you name that even has a pastry table? The croissants, the donuts…
I wanted a bite of everything.
And then I looked up and saw Renee waving to me from the table. I settled into my seat, chatted with old and new bloggers, and soon enough we had coffee and brunch cocktails.
The coffee was actually a big weak for my liking, but my mimosa hit the spot. Our server brought us plates full of each pastry from the pastry table to sample as we enjoyed our brunch beverages.
Based on looks, I expetect the Boston Cream Donut to be my favorite, however the Dulce De Leche and Coconut Danish blew me away by surprise. I didn’t think I liked coconut, but combined with the dulce de leche and flaky danish this was a unique and scrumptious pastry. It was clear that all of the pastries were baked fresh. The donut, lemon corn muffin, and chocolate cherry blondie were are creative twists to breakfast pastries and had me really looking forward to my main meal. I actually would’ve been happy to eat this whole plate of pastries as my meal. Anyone else?
My Spinach and Cheddar Scramble also surpassed my expectations. This seemingly simple dish was anything but. The ratio of eggs, cheddar, and broccoli was perfect and it was cooked thoroughly, just how I like it. The arugula salad was a light side dish, and the small toast was deceptively well buttered and tasted like fresh homemade bread. My whole meal was delicious!
I am so glad I had the opportunity to dine at Puritan and Co with the Boston Brunchers and discover a new restaurant to add my brunch rotation. Thanks for organizing another successful brunch, Renee!
