fantastic breakfasts! We had the special and the salmon cakes. both were just great. Lots of food, reasonable price, great service and so tasty. Easiest 5 star ever!

I had the Lucky Charms pancakes and the goat cheese omelette. Really great food, though I'm not a fan of home fries

We were on our way out of the city but needed to eat and ordered take out. We very much enjoyed the grilled cheese that had white cheddar, swiss & provolone, on toasted sourdough. It was a perfect grilled cheese. We also had a country fried chicken sandwich that was topped with apple cabbage slaw, spiced pickle, and ranch. Would love to come back and try a dine-in experience.

This is a hidden gem about 20 minutes west of downtown. The staff are all super friendly, the food is unique and their coffee was good too. The breakfast greens bowl was really good, but I had high expectations for the lucky charms pancake and it just tasted like a normal pancake with the exception of about 6 little charm mallows. The iced coffee (black) was quite good and comes in a to-go cup just in case you can't finish it during breakfast. When in the mission hill area this is a solid breakfast/brunch place, but I'd recommend getting there earlier (8-9 am) than later because the small space and patio fills up quickly.

Food was great! I was so hungary I forgot to take pics. I ordered to go because place is small and wait time was 40 minutes even outdoor seating was a 25 min wait. I enjoyed it at home where I could take my time to eat and enjoy every bite.

It has been especially difficult to find a go-to brunch spot in Boston -- Milkweed changed that. From the punchy, flavor packed cocktail selection to the beautifully plated and delicious mains, this place surely does not disappoint. Our party was ravenous after our near-two hour wait, but what a worth it wait it was. The French toast took the unanimous prize for its fluffiness and decadence. To my surprise, the Nutella was balanced by the acidity of the strawberries and delicate whip cream. Can't wait to come back.

I FINALLY got to visit Milkweed and this is definitely one of my favorite brunch spots! Due to COVID there are both indoor and outdoor seatings :) Street parking, but not that easy to find so, best to take publlic transit/walk. We ordered a calamari, buttermilk fried chicken, and a strawberry nutella french toast! First thing I noticed is how large the portions are, for the price we're paying WORTH! I loved how tasty the fried chicken was, super flavorful, nothing close to being dried, and most importantly, VERY CRISPY! The french toast was larger than I expected! 2 thick slices cut into halves, so 4 LARGE pieces, topped with lots of strawberries, drizzled with so much nutella and served with whipped butter and syrup on the side! Absolutely PERFECT! The calamari was very large and crispy, I loved the dipping sauce! I would 100% recommend brunch here, I know the weekend waitimes are probably ridiculous but theres always that Yelp waitlist you can join ;) 100000% cute date spot :)

Milkweed is a wonderful breakfast/brunch spot, they have something for everyone. I came for breakfast on a Monday morning and had no wait. Our waitress was great and the food came out pretty quickly. Power Bowl (5/5) - LOVED this dish, everything was cooked perfectly down to the sunny side up eggs. I don't like beets and this dish made me like beets. I especially loved the avocado-like dressing. It gave the whole a nice zing. Steak and Eggs Scramble (4/5) - delicious as well if you're feeling something heartier! Nutella + Strawberry French Toast (4.5/5) - So delicious! Only thing for me, the dollop of cream was slightly salty? Maybe it was just me but everything else about the French Toast was so wonderful Would 100% come back to try all of their other dishes.

Strawberry Nutella French Toast was where it was at! It was so good. I was excited to try the Vegetarian Gyro but I personally am not a fan of collard greens but it was still good, I just wish I knew the veggies that were in it beforehand. The Love Muffin was also super yummy and warm when we got it. Overall, not my best brunch but it was good. The staff was definitely stressed out and not very friendly when we were first walked in due to the amount of people.

French toast was great perfect size and portion sizing. The home fries with scrambled eggs was great. Eggs had a great flavor to them they weren’t blain.

A friend of mine chose this place for us to go to for brunch on a Saturday morning. She attempted to make a reservation, but unfortunately, they don't take reservations. They do, however, take call ahead seating - which we didn't really know until we had already arrived only to find out there was quite a long wait to get seated for a party of 5. This place gets a ton of hype from various social media platforms and for good reason, at least partly. Parking is a bit of a challenge and it does get a bit noisy. Aside from that it was really good. I went with the server's recommendation and I don't remember what it was called but it had like all the meats (ham, sausage, and bacon) along with home fries and french toast. I'm not sure the syrup quantity that came in the plastic container was the appropriate quantity, but I suppose I understand this new norm in these covid times. I could've asked for more I'm sure, but I just went with it. Everyone really enjoyed their meals and the cocktails as well. It might be a tad overhyped and I'm not sure it's worthy of the amount of time that one can expect to wait, especially on a busy Saturday morning.

Food is alright. Service is okay Nothing special This place gets more traffic than usual probably because of location (not many brunch places in the area)

This is a very cute place for brunch! However the wait is always longgg so definitely get on the Yelp waitlist ahead of time, plus expect the wait to be longer than the estimated one they give. For food get the SALMON CAKES! The grits, the eggs, the salmon are all perfectly paired. The sirloin mac n cheese has really nice texture with a slight crispiness and of course cheesiness. The nutella and strawberry french toast is very much what you'd expect it to be, and the spanish omelette is good but nothing special. Corned beef hash satisfies cravings. The buttermilk fried chicken has great fries but the chicken is very dry. Have always had a nice experience here once the wait is over, only odd thing is they don't have any tap water - only bottled. But check this place out if you want a nice brunch!
