Matt Karolian couldn't help but be drawn in this morning to one of the specials at Little Dipper in JP - which is already heavily astrothemed. But shouldn't the hole have been chocolate?

The owner of Tres Gatos is buying the Centre Street Cafe and plans some renovations and menu changes before it re-opens this fall, under the same name.

David Doyle told the Boston Licensing Board this morning that he's working on an Italian dinner menu with a Mediterranean-influenced lunch menu as well, featuring such things as homemade pastas. However, he said he is planning no changes to the weekend brunch menu, which has long had patrons lining up on Centre Street.

Doyle is buying the restaurant from Felicia Sanchez.

Penny Cherubino details all the reasons she loves Craigie on Main in Cambridge for brunch, including:

... I've yet to meet a Craigie sausage that I haven't loved so I ordered, "Craigie Dimanche Sausages, Buttermilk Biscuit and Gravy with farm fresh egg." It was full of flavor with a great biscuit. Next time I'll ask for even more gravy. ...

Penny gives a thumb's up to brunch at Asana, the restaurant in the new Mandarin Oriental on Boylston Street:

... I had the Brioche French Toast with blueberries and added a side of crispy bacon. While it sounds as if it could be a heavy version of the classic dish, it was quite the opposite. This French Toast almost floated off the plate. ...

Pam puts her thumb up for Fajitas and 'Ritas in Downtown Crossing:

Cheap Mexican food is easy to find, but cheap sit-down Mexican is not so forthcoming. Luckily, Fajitas & 'Ritas in Downtown Crossing offers south-of-the-border eats with less cafeteria-style ambiance. Whether you're looking for appetizers and pitchers of margaritas or a full meal, there's plenty on the menu that will satisfy. ...

Geoffrey's Cafe

Geoffrey's Cafe on Washington Street opened for brunch yesterday (the Rosi-Kessels were the very first customers), so we made a point of heading down to the Square this morning.

Good food and so, so different from what long-time Rozzie residents could expect from breakfast at the old Roslindale standby - the Blue Star on Corinth. And yes, it's the same Geoffrey's that used to be in the South End and Back Bay.

If you want your basic all-you-can-eat Sunday brunch buffet, just stay away from the Olde Irish Alehouse. For $5 more per person and five minutes more on the road, you can get to Picadilly Pub, which has way, way, way more selections, French toast that is actually warm and decent service.
