Delicious brunch! It was a bit loud with the live music but that's what we came for after all.

We went to Club Passim for Sunday brunch with our toddler and another family (two toddlers and 4 adults in total). We came to grab a bite before a kids Reggae concert nextdoor at the Sinclair later that morning. The employees at Club Passim are so great! Attentive, super friendly and genuinely kind when interacting with our kids. We had the pleasure of listening to The Late Risers for the early part of their set while enjoying a surprisingly awesome brunch spread. We will be back!

Brunch was delicious! The omelet, French toast, hash browns, bacon, and biscuits were really tasty! Our waitress was friendly but it took a while for the food to get to us. The jazz band was fun and played well together but the volume was too loud. We would go back if the band was a little quieter.

Cafe Passim is a hidden gem. Especially for music lovers, this is a small space near Harvard Square on Palmer Street. It has a rich history of presenting music - so you can be sure they have cultivated the best acts. Primarily folk-bluegrass, although there may be some other types. The food for brunch was hearty and wonderfully presented. The peppered biscuit I would come back for alone. Try the Vermont sourced bacon - it is very sweet and tender. The vibe reminds one of a small Greenwich Village folk club in the 60s that serves great local food. Nice ambiance for families or a group of friends.

What a pleasant surprise for our Sunday brunch. We found this on Open Table at the last minute and were blown away by the quality of the food. To have live music made the whole experience amazing. Well plan to come here again for sure!

Passim is a wonderful place for music, and the band was really fun. The food is great. I am a huge supporter of Passim and will absolutely go there again.

That said, the food took a while to come out. But it was great, and I recommend Passim highly.

This was an "on the whim" brunch and overall was really good. The prices were very reasonable and the service was great. It's a very interesting space and they do live music events frequently.

Perfect after-church spot for Sunday brunch. Creative menu that delivers - food was delicious and filling. Ample portions. Try the Bangkok bread! Live music was enjoyable - not overpowering so you could still have a conversation. Very friendly staff. Definitely a find!
