Starting this Saturday, Cambridge hangout Area Four will start serving weekend brunch from 10:30 am to 2:30 pm. The idea of brunch is a great fit for the coffee shop/restaurant hybrid, as the new menu promises a mix of wood oven-fired savory fare (baked eggs, oven-roasted pancakes, egg-topped pizzas) and sweet pastries (pecan rolls, doughnut muffins, house-made everything bagels).

And as for that cult-fave breakfast sandwich? Fear not, it’s on the menu too—and since it’s brunch, this means that you get to have it with a side of booze, thanks to new cocktails like a spicy clam juice-spiked Bloody Mary called the Red Tide. Get a look at the whole thing ahead.
