Read More About Brunch Spots, Post Boston Marathon

The greatest time of the year for Bostonians and marathon runners worldwide is upon us: the weekend of the 122nd annual Boston Marathon!

The Boston Marathon is the world's oldest annual marathon and ranks as the one of the world's most prestigious road racing events. It is not only a time for professional runners to show off their skills, but also the perfect opportunity for supporting spectators to cheer on family and friends. After a packed day of either running or cheering, the best way to unwind (or celebrate) is without a doubt brunching! Here are some of the best brunch spots post-Boston Marathon based on the finish line location: Back Bay.

Top of the Hub

Located at the top of Prudential Tower, Top of the Hub has a fabulous view of the Boston city line and a delicious brunch menu to match. This is the perfect spot to delight all the senses (but especially taste).

Stephanie's on Newbury

Stephanie’s is casual elegance at its best with one of the city’s most fashionable sidewalk cafés, a popular bar and lounge overlooking Exeter Street, and cozy sky-lit dining spaces.

Precinct Kitchen + Bar

Precinct embraces and celebrates the region’s tradition of food and drink, contributing its own sense of personality with creative vision and progression. Chef-executed interpretations of tried-and-true New England staples are served in a welcoming, casual atmosphere featuring a large furnished patio and indoor fireplace. It's the perfect post-marathon venue... if we do say so ourselves.
