Get out and brunch.
The sunny, Cape Cod-ish surroundings at Cov are one reason to visit at brunch. Another? The Benedict made with the kitchen’s top-of-its-class crab cake. Other items include omelets, steak and eggs, pancakes and huevos rancheros. Served 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday.

A sense of fun permeates the Sunday brunch menu at Day Block Brewing Co., with its bacon flights, pickle flights and a long list of morning-friendly pizzas (Japanese-style, with poached eggs and green onions; Vietnamese with pork and pickled slaw) and a handful of hearty hash bowls. There’s a bloody Mary flight, too, and brewed-on-the-premises beer. Served Sunday 10 a.m. to 11 p.m.

At the colorful and friendly Mason Jar — the table-service sibling to Cupcake — weekend brunch includes weekday staples (pancakes, scrambles, an a.m. sandwich) but offers a scrambled egg-hash brown hot dish, a bacon-roasted veggies-scrambled egg pizza and a strawberry-laden French toast, most in the $11-and-under range. Dessert? Cupcakes, of course. Served 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.
