I’ve been wanting to try Kirkland Tap and Trotter (KT & T) for a while, when I found out that the Boston Brunchers were
invading invited, I got super excited. Chef Tony Maws is also the chef and owner of Craigie on Main, which is in Cambridge and I’ve heard great things about it.
I was really glad that we ordered them. I was starving. They were a good combination of flakiness, sweetness, and crunchiness! Look at the inside.

Since we’re the Boston Brunchers, I wanted to order brunch-y food. However, KT & T is known for their burgers! Sooooo.. I did what any other person would do, I volunteered to split items with someone who also wanted to try a few things. Why not?!?!
Someone at the table ordered the frittata ($16). She described that it was more an omelet, with salmon, with a salad on top.
It was okay. The thing that stood out was that it was warm and kept it’s temperature while I ate the other shared plate. It didn’t come with any sides, so I thought it was over priced.
The grass-fed burger with emmantaler cheese, a fried egg, and bacon!
($16 + $2 w/fried egg)
The kimchee Russian dressing was on the side. And the fries were the star of the brunch for me. Yes, the fries. They were crispy- my favorite.
After our meal, I walked around to get a better view. I really liked the decor.
It’s located next to Dali, on Washington Street, just a few minutes from Harvard Square and Inman Square.
I liked that they had an entry way, so that there were 2 doors to get inside the restaurant. There’s nothing worse than sitting near the door and being cold EVERY time someone enters or exits. The large coat rack is a plus as well. Oh, we also noticed that they had little coat/purse hooks near the tables too.
I had another great meal with great bruncher blogger friends.
