a real lazy sunday??? | Jun 23, 2002 02:06 AM

Hello, 'hounds. Boy, I sure hope people are up late, or else that some actually check the chowhound board on sunday mornings...

So, I've got a question in the Sunday-brunch genre, and maybe it's been answered before, but maybe it's particular enough to generate some unique responses; either way, kindly let me know. My family is off enjoying themselves somewhere else, and so I, youngish person, am on my own tomorrow morning and was going to use the opportunity to head out for a rare&exciting Sunday brunch. My main question is, is there any place, in the Brookline/Newton/Boston/Cambridge/even Somerville (or maybe even further...) area, that I might go, where I can, like, sit, and read the paper, and drink more coffee if I want, and not get all caught in frantic trendy brunch hustle? That's number one.

Number two. Is there a place you can think of that wouldn't be a bad place to go alone? Where I might feel decently welcome? It doesn't have to be a full-fledged restaurant. My brunch tastes run toward bagels and smoked fish, and all kinds of baked goods, from pancakes to vegan chocolate muffins to bialys, are excellent. But eggs, fruit, breakfast burritos, anything is fine, if I can get it in a sort of low-tempo place, without too many anxious couples and bawling children.

Thanks for any suggestions! I know it's a very particular request, but I trust the wisdom of the Chow.
And with that, I go...
