My roommates and I are always on the lookout for a laundromat that's situated close to a good brunch place. Close enough that we can linger over coffee and omelets while waiting for the washers and driers to do their thing. The criteria:
1) PROXIMITY The laundry and brunch shouldn't be more than a block apart.
2) PROPRIETY The brunch place should be casual enough that we can linger, and not so busy that the waitstaff will be annoyed by our lingering at 10am on a week-end.
3) LOCATION Somewhere within 25 minutes' drive of Central Square.
Any suggestions? (Usually we hit up Metropolitan Laundry and Dimitrio's on Brookline St in Cambridge, but they don't really do brunch. We enjoy The Broken Yolk in Somerville for outdoor seating in the warm weather.)
