Brunch—like twilight, sporks, skorts, friends with benefits, and so many other things that make life worth living—is not quite one thing and not quite another. Celebrate everyone's favorite mutant mealtime with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of hearty, homemade breakfast and lunch fare at Mom's Diner on Westcott Street.
In the heart of the university district, this family-owned diner serves up a sizzling symphony of brunchy eats sprinkled with homemade signature spices. Early birds and still-hooting night owls can browse a breakfast menu offering edibles such as Mom's Spicy Sub Slam, laden with three scrambled eggs and customizable meat and cheese ($7.29). Mom's omelettes, studded with appetizing accessories and served with home fries and toast ($7.49–$7.99), delectably rouse tummies still drowsy from last night's backgammon bonanza.

Savory sandwiches such as the classic BLT sate strata-craving appetites ($5.99), while crisp salads provide snooze-button-slapping forks a leafy bed upon which to rest their tines ($3.99–$7.99).
