For the most part, breakfast is bland. Basic, at home, breakfast can prove mundane and relatively boring. Eggs and toast, anyone? But when you couple a trip to the South End in Boston with a double stacker of chicken and waffles topped with bacon marmalade, cheddar, and creole mustard, on a Sunday morning, you’ve given breakfast a whole new meaning.
With a name like Five Horses Tavern, it is assumed the brunch menu is fit for a feast. Starting with the donut holes – a house apple-cinnamon dough with a sugar glaze – then transitioning to the Breakfast Club – a KFC-style chicken with bacon marmalade, fried egg, cheddar, frisee, cornichons, creole mustard on toasted waffles – with a side of pork belly, the #SundayFunday combinations at Five Horses Tavern are limitless. Combine the French Toast Sticks with the Buttermilk Fried Chicken Tenders and a Peach Bellini or combine the Heart Surgeon – a beef and pork hash, with two eggs and crispy fried onions – with the Cast Iron Cornbread and a House Bloody; either way, you’ll be in full #SundayFunday mode. Prepared with 40 rotating drafts, the South End location emphasizes wine, cordials and craft beers; making it an excellent location for mimosas and afternoon cocktails.
If for nothing else, explore #SundayFunday at Five Horses Tavern for its nostalgic environment of adjoining brownstones, rich history, and culturally diverse neighborhood. Bordering Back Bay, Chinatown, and Roxbury, the South End is full of surprises and Five Horses Tavern is one of them. Sink into a corner booth, order the Breakfast Club with a Jack’s Abby and let the Sunday good times take over.
