Tried brunch at Audobon (on Beacon St. outside Kenmore Sq.) Sun., they serve from 11-3. It was okay, nothing too exciting. Got "Iggy's bread" french toast with sausage ($7) but the bread didn't seem out of the ordinary at all. Had a choice of chicken apple or chorizo sausage. I chose the former which was one decent sized piece, split and grilled, a little too long so it was on the dry side. Don't know how long they've served brunch but there were only two other people there at 11:30 (who kept their coats on most the time but that's another story).
Got the chicken colorado super burrito at Boca Grande in Coolidge Corner. It's supposed to be spicy and I asked for hot sauce but there wasn't too much heat. However, it was a nicely put together, big ungloppy burrito for $4.25 and I saved 1/3 for a snack.
Read about the local guy who bakes for Peet's and have enjoyed his espresso cookies in the past. However, I tried the espresso something or other cake and it had a very subtle (too subtle?) coffee flavor and didn't seem sweet enough. Lastly, I think Savoy Bakery on Beacon St. serves a respectable croissant for a very good price. The plain was flaky, not greasy and only $1.50.
