We don’t know about you, but we like to celebrate International Women’s Day with a side of Leslie Knope-inspired waffles. And where better to find the perfect fix than at a restaurant owned and run by boss babes?
Halifax: Edna Restaurant
Where: 2053 Gottingen St., ednarestaurant.com
The rundown: This gorgeous space is filled with large wooden tables, rustic chic decor and drool-worthy brunch options.
What to order: Start off with a grapefruit mimosa (and add a coffee, of course). Order the ricotta pancakes, steak and eggs, and a side of breakfast sausages and potato latkes to share—because fighting the patriarchy requires a lot of fuel.
Boss babe shout-out: Jenna Mooers is the woman that made this go-to brunch spot a reality. Inspired by her mother, who created famed North End restaurant Jane’s on the Common, Mooers opened this spot focusing on creating fun, fresh food in a shared atmosphere.
