A Breakfast Worth Discovering, Stephen Anthony's in Marlboro

Wait-don't stop because you just read "Marlboro." Seriously. Stephen Anthony's is a place that is worth finding. And, in fact, it may not be as far as you think. First, it is near the wonderful orchards of Metrowest. It is also only about 15 minutes from Framingham. We happened upon it after a recent morning eating and picking apples at Honey Pot Hill in Stow. We are thankful to the local man who responded, "Stephen Anthony's" when we asked for a restaurant recommendation that had great food, reasonable prices  and was kid friendly.

He couldn't have been more accurate. From the moment we walked in, the kids were greeted warmly. It is situated on a lovely pond in Marlboro, not far from the Sudbury border on Route 20. While they offer delicious sounding dinners and lunches (including dinner plates that average $15.00), we arrived for Sunday brunch. And, as people who love a good brunch, we lucked out. First, the pork lovers in the group groaned happily over the homemade (!) sausage.
 I loved the maple laden version, though the garlicky version was also yummy.  
Our friend actually ordered the sausage sampler which came with hash browns while his son loved the french toast. 
FoodieDaddy enjoyed the corned beef hash, while we all clamored over the homemade biscuits. FoodieDaddy also shared bites of his luscious, light, Belgian waffles and mini-pancakes. I also appreciated that they made hot dogs for our sons, even though they are not typically served on a Sunday.   The portions are large enough that you can fill yourself up for two meals and prices are very reasonable. 

However, if for some ridiculous reason you are still hungry, walk a few doors down and check out Madrid, a European Patisserie and Bakery. Or, just stay tuned for a future post.
