Brunch was provided free-of-charge by The Poynt. All opinions are my own

What type of basic blogging bitch would I be if I didn’t post about brunch every once in a while? A terrible one, that’s what. Thankfully, I was invited with a group of other local bloggers to spend a morning in Newburyport, MA brunching at The Poynt and shopping at the local stores.

The Poynt is relatively new (opened in the Summer) and brunch is even newer (we were eating the inaugural brunch). It’s a beautiful space – imagine if Restoration Hardware and West Elm had a baby – and the private dining room is perfect for a party of 12 or fewer folks. After spending far too much time taking photos of our selves, the space and the food, we all sunk into our chairs to enjoy brunch and each other’s company.

From stuffed french toast and bananas foster crepes to breakfast pizza and cajun bennies, everything was perfection. I must say, I’ve never had a multi-course brunch before. I also must say, I wouldn’t hate doing it again.

Once we could pry ourselves away from the food, we headed out to stroll the streets of Newburyport. I’ve been twice before, both in the summer, and was excited to see if it was as quaint in the colder months. Spoiler: it was. I was a bit too full to try on any clothes in the boutiques, so instead I went to Best of British and stocked up on fancy european candy, because that’s obviously what I needed.

If you couldn’t tell, I had the best time at brunch and roaming Newburyport. It’s such a quaint town, perfect for a day trip outside of the city. And if you go, make sure to stop by The Poynt for brunch, or any meal for that fact.

Tell me: Where is your favorite brunch spot in and around Boston?

  • It looks and sounds like a beautiful place to brunch at. You are too cool to be a basic b 🙂

    I haven’t seen The Poynt yet, though I haven’t been to Newburyport since end of July. I wonder what was there before it was The Poynt? At any rate, the place looks really cute and bright and the food looks fab. Gotta go!

    • I’m not sure what it was before The Poynt. Next time you go to Newburyport, check it out and stop by for some food/drinks. I can’t wait to hear what you think 🙂

    • Yes, Newburyport seems like your jam (and I’m sure they have a speciality store with fancy jams). You and T should do a weekend/day trip up there now that he’s back for good 🙂
