Which restaurant serves your perfect weekend breakfast? Whether it's an early-morning coffee and pastry, sweet French toast or savory egg dish, Patch is looking to name the best spot for a weekend breakfast/brunch in the North Shore.
One of the biggest brunch days of the year is on its way: Mother's Day. But really, every weekend is an excuse for a great breakfast or brunch out. During the week, breakfast might be a granola bar eaten in the car on the way to work, but on the weekend, people tend to make time to eat. Pancakes, French toast, eggs, pastries and slowly sipping coffee are perfect for weekend trips to your favorite dining spot. Patch wants to find out your North Shore favorites, so tell us in the comments. We're taking submissions through noon Monday. Voting will take place Tuesday-Friday, with a winner named at the end of next week.
