Ever since Stephi's on Tremont opened in March of 2009 it's been embraced by the neighborhood. It was a welcome replacement to the predecessor, which had become run down. Stephi's owners (also the owners of Stephanie's on Newbury) transformed the space into a 60+ seat restaurant that is always busy.
The weekend brunch menu for Stephi's will appeal even to the pickiest of eaters with an even number of breakfast and lunch options ranging in price from $10-$16. Portion size is large no matter what you order and service is consistent. If you make a reservation and don't want to sit on their sidewalk patio, I always recommend requesting one of the oversized booths at the front of the restaurant that provide you a birds eye view of the pedestrian traffic that never seems to end and often is great for people watching.
My preferred breakfast item is Stephi's 3-egg omelet filled w/ smoked salmon, fried capers and a side of home fries. I also ask for the cream cheese on the side (otherwise they stuff that in the omelet too - and its just too much for me).
Stephi's on Tremont is located at 571 Tremont Street in the South End
