Believe it or not, there are a whopping 18 restaurants in Newton that serve brunch on Saturdays and/or Sundays. And that tally doesn’t even include the restaurants that serve breakfast or brunch every day of the week. Maybe the Garden City should consider changing its nickname to the Brunch City.
Here is a list of the Newton restaurants that serve brunch, their brunch hours, and a menu highlight.
