The patio of Deep Ellum in all its glory 

BRUNCH

Our favorite meal of the day, the pleasant, lazy crossover between breakfast and lunch should be just that. But while school is in session, many of our favorite brunch spots devolve into the daytime equivalent of a college dorm party. We find it difficult to truly enjoy our Eggs Benny with that group of sorority sisters getting drunk and increasingly gabby over mimosas and egg whites over there. We get cranky on line at the make-your-own Bloody bar, while some kid who doesn't look old enough to be drinking empties the last drops of Tabasco sauce into his carnival of a cocktail and then dribbles tomato juice on our sleeve as he stumbles back to his table. Come summer, however, such prime spots as Deep Ellum and East Coast Grill empty out (a bit) so that the adult diners can take back brunch. Be warned, however: if you're trying to get your griddle cakes anywhere near Copley or Harvard Square, you'll be contending with something almost as irritating as the college crowd: hordes of hungry tourists.
