Best of Boston

2017 Best Brunch, South

Little Carmen’s

When you need fortification before hitting Hingham’s Derby Street Shoppes, slip into Little Carmen’s. The wee strip-mall café in Norwell serves a knock-out medley of American and Mexican dishes, from chilaquiles topped with slow-roasted pork to chili rellenos wrapped in a light-as-air omelet. Best of all? You’ll be in and out in under an hour, so you can get to shopping. Savvy neighborhood folks know about it, and you should, too.

43 Washington St., Norwell, 339-469-1670,
