You forgot the Rugby Grille at the Townsend Hotel. Quietly, the best business place for breakfast in town.

Village Coney in the Adams Square has hearty, home cooked style breakfasts, with a very large breakfast menu (not to mention an extensive selection of many other lunch and dinner items),

I am totally with Paul. RUGBY GRILLE at the Townsend. Nothing beats the Egg White Frittata with leeks, shiitake mushrooms, spinach, tomatoes, and feta, served with multi-grain toast and baby arugula. It's amazing every time!!!
