Breakfast at Boston Terminal B

Arriving Boston at 8;15-ish, and taking the bus to Nashua from Logan. Have some time to kill, and was wondering if there were any decent breakfast options in the terminal, pre or post security. Particularly if any local fare was available that early within the airport area?

Thanks much.

You might want to check out Massport's site ... they list all the restaurants and retail using this link

If you are looking for "local fare" as you say, most Boston residents would point you to Dunkin' Donuts.

Ahh... and Massport suggests that said establishment is located at A,B,C, and E terminals!

Yup. There are 13 locations at Logan.

AFAIK legal seafoods is the only locally represented restaurant, and not an obvious choice for breakfast...I wonder if you take the free bus to the blue line/maverick there would be "local" greasy spoons nearby, or if you have more time the water shuttle to the seaport would yield some more interesting options

Is there anything more New England than DD?

Granted i had a blueberry muffin at the DD next to AAs gates and a blueberry was a cooked beatle instead. Luckily noticed before that bite

At the original AA Terminal B gates for BOS, there's a Starbucks far tucked in (around Gate 25, I think?). A DD also closer to the Admirals Club. But now that AA merged with US Airways, I don't know what's on the "other" AA Terminal B (that was formerly US Airways). lol.

Dunkin Donuts outside security at original Terminal B has been a huge plus upon some of my very late arrivals, however.

Now we're talking (no disrespect to the DD gang! ) ...

Yes, found out about Legal. They do a breakfast, that is mostly generic, but also have some omelettes with, say, a more local flavor. I am sure I can find a lobster omelette, somewhere her in NYC, but it isn't something I see a lot of. (There are three DD's in the five blocks around my address here )

I have about a little over an hour and a half at the airport. Is that enough time to go explore the vicinity for a meal at that early(?) hour?

Here's another suggestion if you don't have (much) luggage and can start earlier. Take an earlier bus but to the South Station, find a place in downtown, then hop on a Silver Line to Logan. I know the bus stops at the South Station before going to Logan anyways, and it may be cheaper to do the one-stop even including the T fare.

The real Maine blueberries are saved for export only...

There's a free bus to the Blue Line of the T, but it doesn't go to Maverick. It takes you to the airport station, and you have to pay to travel further.

But there is a different free bus on the Silver Line which leaves from each of the terminals and takes passengers to the South Station (Amtrak) in a central part of Boston. There are some places to eat in the station, and many more within a short walk. The ride back to the airport is inexpensive, though not free.

If OP goes to South Station there is a well known 24-hour diner nearby called South Street Diner, one of few all night options in BOS. I haven't been and can't give an endorsement but the place is quite popular and has stood the test of time.
