Sonsie has been my long time favorite Sunday brunch spot, it’s just all the best of Boston right here at the end of trendy Newbury St. the big bi-fold doors open out onto the street where you can chill with the best espresso and eggs benedict in town and people-watch, soak in the lazy morning sun and love the quirky, eclectic crowd that is quintessential Beantown. A fantastic spot for people watching day or night, and the bar gets hopping in the evening, attracting a trendy young crowd and serving up the most inventive libations this side of New York. It’s Paris and New York meets Boston, you’ve gotta experience Sonsie in every season.

Went in on New Year's Day and they had a really great brunch menu. The star of the day was the Oyster Shooter. A fresh oyster served with cocktail sauce and a shot of Tito's Vodka.
Yummy!

We chose this place when visiting Boston and trying to get a sense of a variety of neighborhoods and it worked perfectly as an introduction to the Back Bay. The food and service were very good and we enjoyed the ambiance and walking around the Back Bay after dinner.
