What is brunch?

Brunch is a portmanteau of breakfast and lunch. In essence, brunch is the meal you take instead of having breakfast and lunch.

Brunch often falls between 10 AM and 2 PM. They’re popular amongst people who aren’t early risers or don’t have time to grab breakfast or lunch because of their busy schedules.

Some people also like having brunch to avoid facing the rush of people during lunch hours. In many cases, brunch is associated with weekends because when people sleep in, they usually find it easier to cook one meal instead of preparing breakfast and lunch separately.

Typically, brunch meals consist of elements of breakfast and lunch. 

Best Types of Brunch Food 

No rule governs what type of food you should eat at brunch. In reality, it’s totally up to you what you want to eat, whether you prefer seafood, Chinese, Indian or pancakes. 

That said, people have developed a million and one brunch meal types based on what the situation needs. Here are some of the best types of brunch food you may want to try next time.
