Jose: Thanks for starting your day at Nathaniel's at the Hawthorne. We are just a 10 minute walk to the commuter rail station, so a great place to grab a breakfast sandwich, meet with clients, or enjoy a roll from Iggy's!

Nathaniel's has a wonderful jazz brunch on Sundays as well as a great menu and pleasant atmosphere for all other meals. Located in the Hotel Hawthorne which is delightful in all dining rooms and main ballroom for large events. Have never been disappointed.
