Morning: Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and Bostonians sure know how to do it right. From artisan bakeries and bread specialists to French patisseries and buzzing brunch spots, there are endless options of places to start the day right. If there’s one bakery you can’t leave without trying, it’s Flour Bakery, where award-winning pastry chef Joanne Chang treats baking like an art. Best leave the diet at the door.
Afternoon: Spend the afternoon discovering Boston’s most delicious local producers and culinary artisans at Faneuil Hall Marketplace. The hall in downtown Boston encompasses myriad restaurants and stands offering food and snacks to sample and gourmet produce to take home. Don’t leave without exploring the central colonnade, known as Quincy Market, where around 40 vendors cook up a storm of international cuisine, from Italian pizzas and Mexican enchiladas to Asian noodles and Boston ‘chowda’ (otherwise known as chowder) – a must try when in Beantown. Next, venture over to Boston’s historic outdoor market, Haymarket, open on Fridays and Saturdays, to browse Instagrammable spreads of colourful fruit and vegetables.
