Contrary to popular belief, Scottish cuisine encompasses more than just a tam-topped haggis playing the bagpipe. Expand your edible horizons with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Scottish fare for lunch or brunch at The Haven in Jamaica Plain.
The Haven is an authentic Scottish restaurant, serving homemade dishes from across the pond crafted with fresh local ingredients. Peruse the brunch menu to compete in midmorning gastronomic games with the sticky toffee pancakes loaded with toffee sauce, bacon bits, and maple whipped cream ($12). Sate heartier appetites with the full Scotch breakfast, a massive plate of two smoked eggs, house-smoked bacon, house-made sausage, black pudding, baked beans, grilled pineapple, and tattie scones, a mashed potato griddle cake ($15). Noontime diners can stop in for a bite from the lunch menu, sinking teeth into savory selections such as the Haven burger made with huntsman cheese, bacon and onion marmalade, and a light dash of bracing brogue ($13). Other traditional tasties include cock a leekie soup, a chicken and leek soup with dates and house bacon ($7), and the scotch egg, a boiled egg swaddled in house sausage and bunking with mustard ($5).
Patrons are invited to relax in the warm confines of The Haven, which provides a distinctive getaway in Hyde Square, close to Jamaica Pond, the Arboretum, and Center Street. The cozy atmosphere and decorated walls make this eatery an ideal location for quick brunches or leisurely afternoon meals with kilted brethren and sistren.
