Lower Mills Tavern is located in Dorchester, just a 15 minute walk from the Ashmont Train station or a 5 minute walk from the Milton stop on the Mattapan Trolley. The restaurant is bright and inviting with plenty of seating for brunch with friends or kids. During the nice spring / summer days, they open their windows to let the breeze roll in. The brunch menu is small but offers some unique twists on American staples like the Kabocha Benedict and LMT Breakfast Sandwich. We decided to order the Maine Blueberry Pancakes with a mimosa. We thought we would be receiving pancakes only - like most brunch spots, but when the plate came out we were pleasantly surprised to find four mini pancakes with a heaping pile of the crispiest home fries we have ever had. The mini pancakes are made with blueberries in them and served with a side of maple butter (YUM!) and a side of blueberry compote to drizzle over. Although the pancakes are small, they are fluffy and melted in our mouth. The home fries are seasoned to perfection to top off the meal. The seasonings give the right amount of flavor to compliment the pancakes. The food is freshly prepared with local ingredients. Portions are large so come hungry to fill your appetite! Items are average priced ranging $12-14.
