Let’s talk about exactly what you might be looking for in a brunch place. Spicy Bloody Marys? Large plates covered in hollandaise and breakfast meats? Maybe a jazz trio playing in the corner? Well, Mike and Patty’s has none of those things. In fact, it only has a single table. But their breakfast sandwiches might be the best in the entire city. So the next time you don’t want a full brunch situation, pick up a Breakfast Grilled Crack (a grilled cheese that’s been upgraded with bacon and egg and adds up to way more than the sum of its parts) and head to the Public Garden with a blanket.
