by night, breakfast spot and deli by day, Kelly's Kitchen at the
Porter Square Café & Diner - formerly Café International - offers a
nice brunch at an even nicer price. The three-egg western omelet ($4.50), with
ham, onion, and green pepper, is a fluffy gibbous moon so large it threatens to
overwhelm the plate. You'll have the same welcome trouble with the Cambridge
French Toast Special ($4.50), made with super-thick challah bread, happily free
of the heaviness that so often undermines a good plate of french toast. Both come
with a pile of fragrant home fries, cooked with thyme, rosemary, and parsley. The
lists 10 kinds of joe from $1.25 to $2.50; tea's
a good choice too,
prepared from fresh, loose leaves. At lunchtime, sandwiches - designed for
vegetarians and carnivores alike - run from about $3.50 to $5.
Kitchen is at the Porter Square Café & Diner, 1933 Mass Ave, Cambridge.
