Sunday Brunch in Boston

This weekend was my company holiday party in the city. We spent the night in a lovely, gold-tone room at the Hilton Financial District and wandered the neighborhood for brunch this morning.

At Good Life, Mark had the coconut french toast, and I, the peanut butter pancakes topped with rum-sauteed bananas. The pancakes were so yummy - some of the best I've ever had! I can't wait to try making these at home on a lazy weekend morning.
