Brunch on Mondays at Lulu's Allston (Boston, MA)

Now that I've started a new Monday-Friday job, I miss the days where I can take longer lunches on Mondays. If you're one of those people who can take a long lunch on Mondays, you should take advantage of it and head to brunch! Brunch on Mondays? Yes, some places like Lulu's in Allston actually does their full brunch menu on Monday.

No crowds! Brunch at your own leisure.

At Lulu's, there are plenty of egg dishes like eggs benedict or omelettes, but my eyes went straight to their "Comforts" section which listed things like Cinnamon Roll Mini Waffles and Smores Pancakes.

I had a really hard time deciding but in the end went with the White Trash Hash (tater tots topped with braised short ribs, two poached eggs and hollandaise, $14)

It's almost like tater tot breakfast poutine .. it would've been better for me if the egg was more runny.

I also tried the Monte Cristo Pancakes (savory pancakes filled with cheddar cheese and smoked ham, topped with raspberry jam, fresh herbs, and powdered sugar)

I initially thought it would be ham sandwiched between pancakes, but they are actually bits of ham mixed in the pancake batter. It was pretty interesting - sweet and savory. I personally would've liked more cheese and ham, but it was still a good pancake.

By the way, the iced coffee at Lulu's was very good!

The coffee here was a must, but if you're not working on Monday, you might as well have some breakfast cereal shooter .... it's spiked cereal milk that tastes like Cinnamon Toast Crunch!

Lulu's also has a nice beer list to further fuel your brunch.

Monday brunches are great for the hospitality industry workers, of course, who tend to work all weekend and have Mondays off. Lulu's comfort food menu and big beer list certainly makes it a great place to spend Monday afternoons for people who can make it there for a quieter brunch. I personally want to go back and try more of their fun menu items (cinnamon roll waffle, here I come ... )
