I’ve read up on the history of Parker House Hotel and it’s restaurant and I was happy to finally come in and have breakfast here.

It was pretty quiet and I think there were only two other tables of guests when I came in.

The waitress was really friendly and went to get my ice tea for me.

I ordered the corn beef and hash with toast and sunny side up eggs on top.

The hash was good, it had red peppers and onions.

While I was there, the waitress shared a couple of fun bits about the restaurant.

This was a place that Julia Child would frequent and sat at the table next to where I was sitting and a young upcoming chef, Emeril Lagasse was cooking.

I also sat at the table (#40), where JFK had announced his engagement to Jackie.

Food and good conversation, who could ask for more.

I hope to eat here again soon!

When visiting another city, where to have breakfast is usually among the first of my researches. I rarely write about these wonderful places because, really, what can you say about bacon and eggs? I’m making an exception for the Parker House, which is located inside the Omni Hotel. Their breakfast specialties will keep you ready for anything all day. You could choose the sheer volume of the Beacon Hill Breakfast, down to their American Breakfast (no slouch), as well as their House Omelet (you may choose from several ingredients), and their Eggs Benedict. I believe you can also order their famous Boston Cream Pie, but, really, who has the room for it? And, apparently, they are at present (October 2021) ONLY open for breakfast. The ambience and service is superb, and justifies this necessary luxury. I was lucky in that I was staying almost a mile away, because I found the going-to walk very helpful in developing an early morning appetite and the returning walk, through the Common, an absolute necessity.

You might think twice about ordering their Boston Cream Pie through Goldbelly. I received mine in a box propped on the wrong end. It was lopsided and all the custard shifted to one side. Lindsay of Goldbelly refuses to issue a refund.
