Way back in the 1890s, Guy Beringer, an English writer, first coined the word “Brunch” by combining Breakfast and Lunch – naturally. We, for one, are glad he did and that brunch has become something we love to cater to and serve at – checkout our Brunch menu.
This became popular social event mainly among women, who would meet and chat during a meal between breakfast and lunch which included alcoholic beverages such as mimosas and bloody Mary’s.
Between 1920s and 1930s, the concept of Brunch made it across to America where it really started to snowball and be popular among many classes of people especially the elite and social circles. By mid 1900s, it became popular among general households as well but what was served were more modest dishes such as oatmeal for the rest of the week, but bacon, waffles, fruit, jams, and coffee on Sunday.
Hotels & restaurants became hotspots for brunches and on a global scale. In the 1990s the demand for brunches skyrocketed so much that restaurants would open on weekends just for the brunch.
Nowadays, its mostly a pure social gathering for all ages and usually before any of the food or drinks are touched, the number one priority is to take pictures. Yes, for the gram. Hotels and restaurants especially in cities capitalize on busy weekends to convert their brunch audience to lunch audiences and be bustling throughout the holidays.
