If there is a sandwich heaven, Cutty’s is it. This small (and always busy) breakfast and lunch spot is the brainchild of America’s Test Kitchen and the Culinary Institute of America alums, and proves that delicious, real food does not have to break the bank. The Cutty’s staff welcomes everyone into their spotless 16 seat eatery with a smile, making you feel as if you’re a regular, even if it is your first time. The chalkboard covering one wall at this kid-friendly Brookline Village restaurant displays the regular menu and identifies the origins of most of their ingredients, from farm-fresh meats and veggies to local Taza Chocolate. A Brookline Village family favorite, Cutty’s is deserving of its loyal following in the Boston area.
Really great. Owners Rachel and Charles have two kids of their own, so this is a kid-friendly Brookline Village restaurant at heart. High chairs are found tucked in corners, drinks come with a lid, and the atmosphere is casual and welcoming for kids. Avoid peak lunch time if you can, when a seat is hard to come by.
Specialty sandwiches are the star here, but Cutty’s also offers soups, sandwiches, treats and more. There’s a small breakfast menu served from 8am-10:30am daily. You definitely can’t go wrong with anything on this menu, but here are a few of our super star sandwich favorites:
- Roast Beef 1000 (or ask for it with turkey)
- Ham pimento
- Greens shallot
- Buttermilk fried chicken (available on Super Cluckin’ Chicken Sundays)
There’s no official kid’s menu here, but don’t let that stop you. Ask the amazingly knowledgeable staff taking orders for some kid-friendly menu suggestions and they’ll likely offer up grilled cheese, PB&J and tomato soup as favorites–all great options for junior. You can also build your own sandwich with their “basic sandwiches” if you’re looking for something on the simpler side.
