Breakfast in the Berg
Yummy Yummy Yummy Yummy Yummy Yummy Yummy
Harvard University Dining Services may not always have the ~best~ options, but let’s all agree that Sunday Brunch (especially at the Berg) is the actual best and the highlight of the culinary week.

The Options

Sunday Brunch. You walk in anytime from 11:30 a.m. to 2:15 p.m. For those late risers (aka the people who may have partied a bit too hard last night), this delicious meal has all the best HUDS has to offer.


Waiting in line for these bad boys is totally worth it, I promise. The strategy to the perfect Veritaffle is to wait a bit, then have the griddle warmed up and lathered with enough residual oil that you don’t have to use spray. That way, you can ensure the perfect amount of Harvard branding on your newly minted meal. But be strategic about this. I usually make my Veritaffle and keep an eye on the line after my smoked salmon bagel, another HUDS culinary phenom.

Smoked Salmon

Since I’m a pescatarian, I usually don’t find much HUDS food that I like. Is Red’s Best Catch truly the best? Maybe not, but the smoked salmon makes brunch worth it. By the way, here’s a tip: Don’t skip out on toasting your bagel — what you lose in time, you gain in taste.


Another cult favorite? The biscuits. Whether you have them with gravy or grape preserves, they’re the perfect match for Dutch apple pancakes and any pasta choice.

The Leisure

Sunday brunch is the optimal time to rehash your weekend adventures and catch up with friends. It’s the perfect way to start your day before you realize you have a p-set due on Monday.

So go grab a tray and pile on the chocolate muffins or the multigrain penne chicken broccoli alfredo, and get your Sunday off to the right start you deserve.
