I recently had the pleasure of brunching at B Street in Newton with the Boston Brunchers. While I was certainly expecting a tasty meal, I had no idea how much of a treat we were in for.

I noticed when I arrived that the atmosphere was cozy and inviting, and the staff couldn’t have been more welcoming. Their brunch menu struck me as classic but with a modern twist. I couldn’t wait to start trying the food!

Please note that all food and drink was complimentary, but the opinions are my own.

They prepared a special menu for us that included a couple of cocktails, several tastings, and a choice of one main entree.

We were each given a glass of their Rose Sangria and a Bloody Mary. I didn’t love the sangria; It was a little sweet for my taste. The bloody mary, on the other hand, was very tasty and had a nice kick.

The first thing I noticed when they started bringing out the food was that they were not skimping on portion sizes! We were each given individual plates of every item on the tasting menu.

The first was the Spinach and Feta Pie, served with a side salad. It somehow tasted very buttery without being too rich, and the filo was perfectly crisp and flaky. While it’s certainly not an inventive combination, I loved their version.

The next dish to arrive was the Breakfast Flatbread, which had roasted garlic, mozzarella, roasted potatoes, fried eggs, and bacon. The first thing to impress me about this dish was how perfectly all the eggs were cooked. The flatbread felt perfectly balanced, with just the right amount of toppings to compliment the eggs but not overwhelm the dish. The roasted garlic provided a wonderful sweet garlic flavor and a little creaminess, and the bacon provied a hint of smoke and salt. I decided this was my favorite dish…until the next one arrived.

Just looking at the perfectly cooked medium-rare steak and soft scrambled eggs peeking out of the Steak & Scrambled Egg Quesadilla made my mouth water. The tender steak had a wonderful grill flavor and the quesadillas had just the right amount of cheese to hold the filling together. It was served with pico de gallo (not pictured), which was a nice light compliment to the rich dish.

I had to stop myself from finishing off my quesadilla when the French Toast arrived. It was made from thick cut challah bread and served with caramelized apples and maple syrup. I’m not a huge sweet breakfast eater, but I would even consider ordering this again. The french toast was caramelized on the outside and custardy inside, with the caramelized apples providing enough sweetness that the maple syrup wasn’t even needed.

After all of the tastings, it was time to choose an entree. A fellow blogger and I decided to split one because were were pretty stuffed at this point.

We went with the Turkey Hash. It was loaded with white meat turkey, potatoes, bell peppers, and onion and topped with an over easy egg. It wasn’t the most exciting thing I had tasted so far, but it tasted surprisingly light for a hash (which was very welcome at that point).

After we finished our entrees, B Street generously surprised us with some desserts.

They brought over a S’mores Baked Alaska, a Blueberry Crostata, and a Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp. I thought the crisp was phenomenal and really highlighted the fresh flavors of the strawberry and rhubarb, and it was also the clear favorite among the group.

Overall, I was very impressed by B Street’s brunch and would highly recommend it!
